Greetings,
I have the handle to a URL stream  -
Uri(file.URI + "?render=stream"UriKind.Absolute);
where the file.URI is the file's complete URL and the render on the server is a php function that will send the file over as a stream.
How do I use this to load directly into a RadRichTextBox?
Thanks,
Mel

Hello,

I need to load a .docx file from a server too but without the php function on the backend. I've read through a lot of the help docs but haven't figured it out yet.

If you should find a solution would you please post it here? I'll do the same!

Many thanks in advance,

~ Dave

Hi Mel,

As long as you can obtain a stream with the content of the file in a specific format, you can load it in the rich text box in the following way:

IDocumentFormatProvider formatProvider = DocumentFormatProvidersManager.GetProviderByExtension(".docx");
this.editor.Document = formatProvider.Import(stream);

You can find more information on the format providers in this article.

@Dave:
Please refer to this forum thread for a demo project showing how a file can be loaded from the server using WebClient.
