Hi,

I'm trying to move individual blocks (BlockBase) from one document to another (RadFlowDocument). Unfortunately I get an error saying that the blocks I try to move are still related to their original document. This makes sense, because when creating a new block (both Paragraphs and Tables) you must pass a related document to the constructor. Same goes for all their children like Runs, Breaks, Rows etc.

Therefore my question - how can I copy a BlockBase from one RadFlowDocument to another? Is there a way to change this document relationship to another document?

Thanks in advance

Maks

Hi Maksymilian,

For basic scenarios, you can use cloning, as described in the Clone and Merge documentation article. For more advanced importing of document elements, you can go with DocumentElementImporter. The main difference is that the latter handles styles, lists and other related properties of the document elements.
