Hello,

I am having a problem with merging documents together and was hoping there would be a solution to this. Currently We are combining RadDocuments together with the following code found on another thread.

private RadDocument MergeDocuments(RadDocument[] documents)
{
    RadDocument mergedDocument = new RadDocument();
   
    foreach (RadDocument document in documents)
    {
        foreach (Section section in document.Sections)
        {
            Section copySection = section.CreateDeepCopy() as Section;
            document.Sections.Remove(section);
            mergedDocument.Sections.Add(copySection);
        }
    }
   
    return mergedDocument;
}

This does combine the documents but it messes with the formatting of them. Documents seem to inherit the header/footer properties of the other document and will also change the spacing and FontFamily of the document. I thought that this had something to do with the default values for a new RadDocument but I can't seem to figure out how to preserve each individual documents formatting when combining them.

I basically would like to append a document to another one and keep them looking the same as they used to just on another page (Their own headers/footers, spacing, font etc). If there is a way to do this I would appreciate any help on how to accomplish this.

Thanks,
Aaron

Hi Aaron,

Thank you for contacting us!

The RadRichTextBox’s functionality to merge documents is one of its key features. A lot of our customers insisted on having such as yours desired scenario because it’s very practical to user’s point of view. That’s why we created a sample SDK project which demonstrates how multiple documents can be merged into one.

Please take a look at this demo for a reference!

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us. 

Kind regards, Yancho
