Hi,
I am trying to use RadRichTextbox with RadDataEntry.
On the EditorInitializing event I set the editor to be a RadRichEditor for a particular string field.
However since there is no property for the Text in the editor I am not sure how to handle the binding in this case.

Any pointer will be much appreciated. 
Thanks

I figured it out by myself. Instead of binding to RadRichTextBox I created a wrapper user control around it that controls the Text Properties

I put the solution in case is useful for anyone:

01.public partial class RtlfWrapper : UserControl
02.    {
03.        public event EventHandler RtlfTextChanged;
04. 
05.        public RtlfWrapper()
06.        {
07.            InitializeComponent();
08.        }
09. 
10.        private void radRichTextBox1_DocumentContentChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
11.        {
12.            OnRtlfTextChanged();
13.        }
14. 
15. 
16.        public string RtlfText
17.        {
18.            get
19.            {
20.                var formatProvider = new RtfFormatProvider();
21.                return formatProvider.Export(radRichTextBox1.Document);
22.                 
23.            }
24.            set
25.            {
26.                radRichTextBox1.DocumentContentChanged -= radRichTextBox1_DocumentContentChanged;
27. 
28.                try
29.                {
30.                    ImportDocument(value);
31.                }
32.                catch
33.                {
34.                    InsertText(value);
35.                }
36. 
37.                OnRtlfTextChanged();
38.                radRichTextBox1.DocumentContentChanged += radRichTextBox1_DocumentContentChanged;
39.            }
40.        }
41. 
42.        private void ImportDocument(string value)
43.        {
44.            var formatProvider = new RtfFormatProvider();
45.            radRichTextBox1.Document = formatProvider.Import(value);
46.        }
47. 
48.        private void InsertText(string value)
49.        {
50.            var span = new Span(value);
51.            var paragraph = new Paragraph();
52.            var section = new Section();
53.            var document = new RadDocument();
54. 
55.            paragraph.Inlines.Add(span);
56.            section.Blocks.Add(paragraph);
57.            document.Sections.Add(section);
58. 
59.            radRichTextBox1.Document = document;
60.        }
61. 
62.        protected virtual void OnRtlfTextChanged()
63.        {
64.            var handler = RtlfTextChanged;
65.            if (handler != null) handler(this, EventArgs.Empty);
66.        }
67.    }
