    Hi

    I'm loading a docx document to a RichTextEditor and I need the total number pages because the user need to move around the document with external buttons (page up, page down, fit, ...).

    How can i get Total pages? What is the best way to move around pages and let current page fit at top of control?

    Hello GJ,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can navigate to the next and previous pages by using the CaretPosition object and calling the MoveToFirstPositionOnNextPage and MoveToLastPositionOnPreviousPage methods respectively: 
    this.radRichTextEditor1.Document.CaretPosition.MoveToFirstPositionOnNextPage();
    this.radRichTextEditor1.Document.CaretPosition.MoveToLastPositionOnPreviousPage();

    The count of the total pages can be retrieved accessing the PageNumber property of the last SectionLayoutBox. Please see below:  
    SectionLayoutBox lastSectionLayoutBox = (SectionLayoutBox)this.radRichTextEditor1.Document.DocumentLayoutBox.ChildLayoutBoxes.Last;
    int pagesCount = lastSectionLayoutBox.PageNumber;

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
