How do I clear the entire Content of a RadRichTextBox?

For some Reason I don't want to use:

MyRadRichTextBox.Document = new Telerik.Windows.Documents.Model.RadDocument();

I found it out myself:

MyRadRichTextBox.Document.Selection.SelectAll();
MyRadRichTextBox.Document.Delete(false);


Why is it so difficult to find such things in the Telerik documentation? MS Docu is much better...

Hello Peter,

Thank you for your feedback, it is much appreciated. We will consider the suggestion in the future improvements of our documentation.

Please also note that while executing this code will clear the contents of the editor, the RadDocument instance preserves many other properties such as styles, document variables, history of the previously executed actions, properties of the first section, etc. That being said, you might not achieve exactly the desired result.

Let us know if any additional questions arise.

Regards,
Petya

Hi Steve,

The proper approach is the one Maurizio posted on 29 Oct - to select all the content and then invoke the Delete() method. However, the method exposed by RadDocument is now obsolete and we recommend using the API of RadRichTextBox or RadDocumentEditor:
this.radRichTextBox.Document.Selection.SelectAll();
this.radRichTextBox.Delete(true);

Regards,
Tanya
