Hi,

I am trying to implement dragging & dropping  HTML table to Microsoft word document.

It is a WPF application where I am dragging a RadListBox item to word and if I am setting data objects type to "Text" then plain text is getting dropped in MS word document.  
var payload = DragDropPayloadManager.GeneratePayload(null);
payload.SetData("Text", "I am a plain text");

But my requirement is to drag and drop formatted text (with background, border, different font color).
Also, I don't want to drag and drop image as it is not going to work in my case.

Please advise.

Hi Prateek,

What I can suggest you would be to use RTF text formatted as desired, create a new DataObject from it and assign to e.Data in the DragInitializeHandler as shown below:

string rtfString = @"{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Arial;}}
{\colortbl ;\red0\green0\blue0;\red255\green0\blue0;}
\viewkind4\uc1\pard\qc\cf1\fs16 test \b bold \cf2\b0\i italic\cf0\i0\fs17
\par }";
 
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(ASCIIEncoding.Default.GetBytes(rtfString));
e.Data = new DataObject(DataFormats.Rtf, rtfString);

Once you drop on Word the text will be formatted as defined in the rtfString.

Hope this will work for you.
