    Hello Telerik Team,
    I have 2 questions about RadRichTextBox.
    1.In MSWord on "Insert" there is a Date & Text control. Does RadRichTextBox support it?And if no then it will be implemented? Or how I can implement the same functionality?
    2.When I added "Tables" in my RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI I face one little problem.In MSWord I can resize a table by clicking the table border and draging it.Is it possible to do with RadRichTextBox?And if it's not then it will be implemented?

    Hi Anthony, 
    To your questions:
    1. As of now, we do not have plans to include the insert Date & Time functionality. Note that in MS Word you can make the field to update itself automatically, which cannot be accomplished with RadRichTextBox currently. If you just wish to insert the date, you can add a button to the ribbon bar and on click open a new RadWindow, that contains DateTime.Now in various formats. On closing the window with OK, you can insert the date time in the document using RadRichTextBox's or RadDocument's Insert method. You can also encapsulate the logic in a command and bind the button's command property. If non-updating dates suit your scenario but you meet any difficulties with the implementation, we can help you further.
    2. We introduced thumbs for resizing the columns of tables in Q3.SP1 (2010.3 1314). You can check them also in our MSWord demo. You can see that there is also a DocumentRuler above the page, which can be used to change the width of columns as well. Thumbs for resizing the height of the rows will probably be included in Q1 2011 or soon after that.
    If you have other questions, do not hesitate to get back to us.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
