Hi.

When we want add a message, we create an instance from ChatTextMessage  class or ChatCardMessage class or ...

How can we access to these objects in RadChat1_ItemFormatting event? In fact I want too access to ChatTextMessage Object via TextMessageItemElement.

Thanks alot.

Hello, Iman, 

You can access the ChatTextMessage from the visual message element as it is demonstrated in the following code snippet:

private void radChat1_ItemFormatting(object sender, ChatItemElementEventArgs e)
{
    TextMessageItemElement textItemElement = e.ItemElement as TextMessageItemElement;
    if (textItemElement != null)
    {
        ChatTextMessage msg = textItemElement.Data.Message as ChatTextMessage;
    }
}

I hope this information helps.
