If I use the RichTextBox editor to have the user input text and format it, is it possible to output this in Open XML format to a SQL database?

What we want to do  is have the users input text and format it.  Save this to the database and then get the data from the database to assemble a document.  Has anyone done this?

Hi Mark Bourisaw,

This can be done using XamlDataProvider which can be bound to any data source at your will:
http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radrichtextbox-features-data-providers.html

If you need to use explicitly Docx format, since it is stored in a binary form in the data base, there is no data-provider but you can still use DocxFormatProvider to load/store documents. You may also implement a wrapper class that provides more convinient bindable property like in this forum thread:

Let us know if you need further assistance.

What version of Silverlight is the DOCX provider supported in?  We are trying to create a sample project and do not see the DOCX provider?  The others are there HTML and document.

Hi Mark Bourisaw,

The rich text box works for Silverlight 4. There is nothing specific about the format providers and Docx was one of the first format providers that were developed. It is included in the assembly Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.OpenXml. Similarly, the HTML format provider is part of the Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Html assembly.
For general information on the assemblies you need to add references to in order to make use of the different features of RadRichTextBox, you can refer to the third post in this forum thread.

Greetings,
Iva
