The InlineUIContainer of RichTextBox control permits users to participate in the composition of visual documents by inserting controls onto the text page of the control.  In my application, the user writes a report and inserts into the report a UserControl showing one (or more) customer's information via a DataForm (ReadOnly).  The application is written using MVVM where the ViewModel controls the state of the data.  What I would like to learn is how each UserControl inserted into the document could obtain a specific state or refers to a specific customer data.  Since the RichTextBox contains a control, the user could select from the DataForm (when the control is in ReadOnly mode) the specific customer.  But the goal is to insert a control refering to data for a specific customer, ultimately save the XAML to a database and then reconstructing the report using XAML from the database.

Hi Ceramist,

Unfortunately, currently we don't support serializing InlineUIContainers. This feature in our development plans, but I cannot specify any timeframe for its development yet. Our plans involve introducing API (events and virtual methods of FormatProviders) that will allow developer to implement its own approach for serialization.
Let us know if you have any suggestions about how do you expect this feature to work or if you need any further assistance.

Sincerely yours,

We're having an issue, you'll see, we've got 2 RadPaneGroup, in one we've got a RadRichTextbox and in the other a RadGridView, these 2 panels are asigned to a RadSplitContainer in execution time when we clic in their respective RadRibbonToggleButtons, so we can switch beetween them, the problem es that when we back to the RadRichTextBox panel we lost the caret position and the Focus goes on a InlineUIContainer from the document loaded on the RadRichTextBox, we don't want this behaivor, we would like that the caret and the focus stayed at the position were left before we switched the panel.
How can we control this behaivor?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Pablo,

I tried reproducing the problem you are observing, but to no avail. 

What I tried is creating a setup similar to the one you explained and loading a RadDocument  which contains an InlineUIContainer with TextBox in it in RadRichTextBox. I could verify that the whole RadRichTextBox loses focus when changing between the two panels, however the text box in the inline container did not receive the focus.

In this regard, you can handle the MouseLeftButtonUp event of RadPane and focus the RadRichTextBox manually as follows:
this.radRichTextBox.Focus();
In this case the caret should return at the same position it was prior to changing the panels.

I hope this is helpful! Let us know if you have other comments or questions.
 
Kind regards,
