OK, I'm quite new at these controls, and when I have my database code attempt to insert text/rtf into the Rich Textbox, I use txtBox.text=reader etc.  However, nothing happens. I know this control is different but I'm stumped. How do I load text, doc and rtf from my database into the radRichTextBox?

I am also curious about this answer - is it possible to add the answer to the forum as I cannot see the support thread being mentioned above.

Hello Gm,

Please find the answer below:

As this article states, here is how to import a Word document in RadRichTextBox document:

public RadDocument ImportDocx()
{
    RadDocument document = null;
    IDocumentFormatProvider provider = new DocxFormatProvider();
    OpenFileDialog openDialog = new OpenFileDialog();
    openDialog.Filter = "Documents|*.docx";
    openDialog.Multiselect = false;
    DialogResult dialogResult = openDialog.ShowDialog();
    if (dialogResult == System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK)
    {
        using (FileStream stream = new FileStream(openDialog.FileName, FileMode.Open))
        {
            document = provider.Import(stream);
        }
    }
    return document;
}

Afterwards, simply set the returned document to the control's document:
private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   radRichTextBox1.Document = ImportDocx();
}

That is what it takes to load a word document in RadRichTextBox. Attached you can find a sample project with a sample word file, demonstrating the described approach.
