    Hello ,

    I am using Ribbon bar with  Rad Rich text Box. When I'll add image from ribbon bar's insert picture button, image will be added in Rich text box. I have not set any Horizontal or vertical Scrollbar to rich text box yet. But when image is lager than rich text box's height-width,then I need to show Horizontal and vertical Scrollbar to rich text box.

    Right now it is showing only vertical scroll bar when image is large only and not horizontal.

    It is not showing horizontal scroll bar even after I set it to rich text box.

    Below is link for sample solution for it , Please tell me what to do to show Horizontal Scrollbar.

    I am also attaching one snapshot of that.

    Hi Albert,

    By design, when in Flow LayoutMode, the content of the document is flowing vertically and document width is always equal to available width in the RichTextBox. Thus no horizontal scrollbars are meant to be shown.

    You can see that in MS Word when inserting a big picture in web Layout mode, a horizontal scroll-bar is shown, but when attempting to print the document for example, the picture is still being cropped.
    In MS RichTextBox, the picture is being resized along with the rich textbox.

    Overall, there are different approaches that can be adopted. We will consider them, but cannot promise anything specific.
    Sincerely yours,

    I have the same problem. When I add large image (width of the image is larger then width of Rich text Box), it doesn't showed in full size. I can't scroll it horizontally. How should I enable horizontal scrolling or reduce image size automatically?

    Thank You

    Hi Vennila,

    The provided version number is a little bit confusing to us since our version format is different, e.g. 2014.2 729 (Q2 2014 SP1).

    Still, if you are using RadRichTextBox for Silverlight, we are already aware of this issue in the latest versions of the control. You can track our progress on this through the Horizontal scroll is not shown in Flow layout mode with big images item in the Ideas & Feedback Portal. I'm afraid I cannot suggest a workaround at this point.

    Please excuse us for the inconvenience. Let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
