Hello i have a data source with 8 entites that each has a string property containing html
I want to display these in readonly ritchtextbox within a radgridview

it takes around 15 -20 seconds to load the content and after it loaded it slows down the whole site
what causes this performance loss?


<controls:RadGridView x:Name="RadGridView"
           ItemsSource="{Binding Entities, Mode=TwoWay}" AutoGenerateColumns="False"  SelectionMode="Single"
           CanUserSelect="true" RowIndicatorVisibility="Collapsed" CanUserFreezeColumns="False"
                                          CanUserInsertRows="True" ShowInsertRow="True"  >
                            <controls:RadGridView.Columns>
                                <controls:GridViewDataColumn Header="Tekst" >
 
                                    <controls:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
                                        <DataTemplate >
 
                                            <telerik:RadRichTextBox x:Name="richTextBox"  IsReadOnly="True" IsEnabled="False" IsContextMenuEnabled="False" IsImageMiniToolBarEnabled="False" IsSpellCheckingEnabled="False" IsTrackChangesEnabled="False">
                                                <telerik:RadRichTextBox.Resources>
                                                    <telerikHtml:HtmlDataProvider x:Key="HtmlDataProvider"  RichTextBox="{Binding ElementName=richTextBox}" Html="{Binding p_FullTekst, Mode=TwoWay}"  />
                                                </telerik:RadRichTextBox.Resources>
                                            </telerik:RadRichTextBox>
 
 
 
                                        </DataTemplate>
                                    </controls:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
                                </controls:GridViewDataColumn>
 
                            </controls:RadGridView.Columns>
 
                        </controls:RadGridView>

Hi Fredrik,

RadRichTextBox is a relatively heavy control due to the complex functionality it supports. The performance generally depends on the number of rich text boxes that are created, the content they handle and the way their container measures them.

I tried  several cases using your code and about 50 rich text boxes on a page of a grid view. The only thing that caused a performance as bad as the one you mention was if the HTML input contained large paragraphs. The DataTemplate of the CellTemplate measures the rich text box in Infinity Width and in this case the control's visualization is disabled. It cannot calculate what UIElements it must create, so it creates them all. Hence the performance toll.

The only solution to this problem is to set some fixed Width or MaxWidth to the control, so that it can make use of its virtualization. You could also verify that the HTML input uses new paragraphs and not just line breaks.

On a side note, you should declare the HtmlDataProvider outside of the resources of the RichTextBox, e.g.:

<DataTemplate >
    <Grid>
        <telerikHtml:HtmlDataProvider  RichTextBox="{Binding ElementName=richTextBox}" Html="{Binding p_FullTekst, Mode=TwoWay}"  />
        <telerik:RadRichTextBox MaxWidth="800" x:Name="richTextBox"  IsReadOnly="True" IsEnabled="False" IsContextMenuEnabled="False" IsImageMiniToolBarEnabled="False" IsSpellCheckingEnabled="False" IsTrackChangesEnabled="False" />
    </Grid>
</DataTemplate>

Otherwise its context will not be properly updated when scrolling and the content of the rich text boxes will be messed up (the 5th RadRichTextBox may show the content of the 1st and so on).

I hope this answers your question!

Hi Iva,

I have a fairly simple high-level project management tool in which I want to enable rich content for the project description. I do not need a full-blown Word like interface,  only bullets, numbering, bold/underline  and spell checking. The RadRichTextBox is an "overkill" in terms of its functionality, but seemed like my only option in the Telerik control suite. However, placing the control in a RadWindow shown with .ShowDialog results in extremely long load times on first load (nearly 10s!!!!), yes subsequent loads are much faster but such a long delay cannot work in production. If I remove only the RadRichTextBox, the RadWindow load is nearly instantaneous.

UPDATE: While waiting for a reply, I deployed this to our demo server and in there loading of the RadWindow with the RadRichTextBox is very snappy!! It seems as if the problem is related to running the application out of Visual Studio. Can that be?

Hi,

We are unaware of any differences in the behavior of RadRichTextBox when running the application from Visual Studio and the application is deployed. The only thing that comes to mind is that maybe from Visual Studio you were running the application in Debug mode instead of Release.

When it comes to the initial loading time of the control, this might be due to the use of MEF. To improve the startup time you can try changing the default catalog as described in this help article. Additionally, you might omit some of the types which you are not planning on using in your project (context menu, dialogs, etc.). 

On a side note, I noticed the way you are modifying content in RadRichTextBox when the control is loaded. Please note that changing document elements of a measured document directly (by accessing them through the Sections, Blocks, Inlines, etc. collections) is not recommended. Instead, I'd suggest selecting the respective content and calling one of RadRichTextBox's methods (ChangeFontSize(), ChangeFontStyle()).

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have other questions or comments.

Hi,

We are using the RadRitchTextBox in our application for preparing the document.we have implemented the smart note feature so user should be able to select the predefined option/text by simply clicking on the smart note links in document.so we are using XamlFormatProvider's import and export functions. we observe that when our document size is big and number of smart note links are more in document then import and export function is taking lot of time. 

Is there any option by setting we should be able to improve the performance our app?

please ref the attached file for smart note links in document.
