Hi, every body,

 

Today I try to export pdf from one RadEditor ... but the function throw an nullReferenceException.

Here is my code :

 

RadEditor radEditor = new RadEditor();
radEditor.Content = "<div>Hello</div>";
radEditor.ExportSettings.FileName = "TextFile.pdf";
radEditor.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
radEditor.ExportToPdf();
 

Did I miss something ?

Thanks,

Corentin

RadEditor radEditor = new RadEditor();
radEditor.Content = "<div>Hello</div>";
radEditor.ExportSettings.FileName = "TextFile.pdf";
radEditor.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
radEditor.ExportToPdf();
RadEditor radEditor = new RadEditor();
radEditor.Content = "<div>Hello</div>";
radEditor.ExportSettings.FileName = "TextFile.pdf";
radEditor.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
radEditor.ExportToPdf();

Hi Corentin,

RadEditor is not designed to be used as a framework or API to export to PDF. You need an actual RadEditor rendered on a page for the exporting to work. 

What you can use for this case is RadWordsProcessing to convert HTML to RadFlowDocument and next to use a PdfFormatProvider class to export the document to PDF file.
