Hello,
using a RadRichTextBox I am facing the following:
Document is not in readonly mode -> Cursor is visible, can be moved via mouse and keyboard = > okay!
Document is in readonly mode -> Cursor is not visible, but can be moved via mouse and keyboard and shows up on a not expected postion when the document comes back to an editable state again. What can I do against this behaviour?

Another question I have: Is it possible to keep an selection made while in an editable state, but do not permit selection while in "readonly" (setting "isSelectionEnabled" to false)?

Thanks in advance

Jo

Hello Jo,

Thank you for contacting us!

The DocumentSelection class allows you to preserve the selection even if the RadRichTextBox in your application does not currently allow selection. Further, setting the IsSelectionEnabled property to false will prevent the caret from changing its position. That said, here is how I suggest you implement your requirements:
if (this.radRichTextBox.IsSelectionEnabled)
{
    selection = new DocumentSelection(this.radRichTextBox.Document);
    foreach (var range in this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.Ranges)
    {
        selection.AddSelectionStart(range.StartPosition);
        selection.AddSelectionEnd(range.EndPosition);
    }
 
    this.radRichTextBox.IsReadOnly = !this.radRichTextBox.IsReadOnly;
    this.radRichTextBox.IsSelectionEnabled = !this.radRichTextBox.IsSelectionEnabled;
 
}
else
{
    this.radRichTextBox.IsReadOnly = !this.radRichTextBox.IsReadOnly;
    this.radRichTextBox.IsSelectionEnabled = !this.radRichTextBox.IsSelectionEnabled;
 
    foreach (var range in selection.Ranges)
    {
        this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.AddSelectionStart(range.StartPosition);
        this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.AddSelectionEnd(range.EndPosition);
    }
}

I hope this helps!
