    MSWord Example inside a DataForm.. with NewItemTemplate, EditTemplate and ReadOnlyTemplate

    First of all, is it possible? Then, is it viable?

    If at least one of above is yes, how?

    How do we treat commands in code behind?

    And if we use MVVM?

    Hello Carlos,

    You can place any UI element inside RadDataForm. Customizing what gets displayed in RadDataForm is demonstrated here. We have a RadRichTextBox control which provides many of the features of the MsWord editor and you can place RadRichTextBox inside RadDataForm.

    All of our controls are MVVM compatible so you should not have any problems if you follow the MVVM approach. 

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Hi Telerik Team,

    I have the same problem. After put the RitchTextBox inside of DataForm, I want have some events, so I need using commands.

    It´s possible using commands inside of DataFormDataField?
    Like this: 

    <telerik:DataFormDataField Grid.Row="1">
                            <telerik:RadRichTextBoxRibbonUI telerik:StyleManager.Theme="Transparent" Grid.Row="1" Margin="0,100,0,0" ApplicationButtonImageSource="/RichTextBox;component/Images/RichTextBox/MSOffice/AppIcon-telerik.png" Height="207" Grid.RowSpan="2">
                                    <telerik:FontFamiliesProvider x:Key="FontFamiliesProvider" />
                                    <telerik:ApplicationMenu Height="267">
                                            <StackPanel Width="230" />
                                        <telerik:RadRibbonButton LargeImage="/Telerik.Windows.Controls.RichTextBoxUI;component/Images/MSOffice/32/open.png" Text="Abrir" Command="{Binding Comando}" />
                            <!--<telerik:RadRichTextBox Margin="0"/>-->  


    private ICommand _comando;
            public ICommand Comando
                get { return _comando; }
                set { _comando = value; }
    //Contrutor I have this:
    _comando = new RelayCommand(Altera) { IsEnabled = true };
    //Where "Altera" is my method for this command

    Thanks in advance.

    I solve the problem with this: Command="{Binding Comando, Source={StaticResource cmd}}", where the cmd is a key of my ViewModel and Comando is my command.

    Could you give an example of a RadRichtextbox in a raddataform. I am having difficulty binding the data in the source to the radrichtextbox. I can bind to dataformfields no problem but not the radrichtextbox. My dataforms itemsource is set in code behind for a WCF Async. and the radrichtextbox code is



    <telerik:RadRichTextBox IsReadOnly="True" Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column="2" FontSize="12" DocumentInheritsDefaultStyleSettings="True" Height="Auto" HorizontalAlignment="Left"


    HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden" IsContextMenuEnabled="False" IsSelectionMiniToolBarEnabled="False"


    IsSpellCheckingEnabled="True" Name="rtbNoticed"


    VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Auto" Width="200" IsEnabled="False">






    <my1:HtmlDataProvider x:Key="provider" DataContext="{Binding ElementName=radDataForm1,Path=SelectedItem}" RichTextBox="{Binding ElementName=rtbNoticed}" Html="{Binding Noticed, Mode=TwoWay}" />
