Hi Everyone

I'm using the RadRichTextBox for displaying email messages. And now I have an issue with it - if message contains html with dl, dt and dd tags - all data between these tags is lost.
Here is the example of XAML:
01.<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
02.        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
03.            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"></RowDefinition>
04.            <RowDefinition Height="*"></RowDefinition>
05.        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
06.        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
07.            <ColumnDefinition></ColumnDefinition>
08.            <ColumnDefinition></ColumnDefinition>
09.        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
10.        <Button Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Click="SetValidData">Set Valid Html Data</Button>
11.        <Button Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Click="SetBrokenData">Set Broken Html Data</Button>
12.        <telerik:RadRichTextBox x:Name="emailContentTextBox" Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" AcceptsTab="True">
13.        </telerik:RadRichTextBox>
14.    </Grid>

And here is the C#:
01.public partial class MainPage
02.{
03.    public MainPage()
04.    {
05.        InitializeComponent();
06.    }
07. 
08.    public string HtmlDataBroken
09.    {
10.        get
11.        {
12.            return "<!DOCTYPE html><html><body><ul><li>One</li><li>Two</li></ul><dl><dt>Coffee</dt><dd>Black hot drink</dd><dt>Milk</dt><dd>White cold drink</dd></dl><ul><li>Three</li><li>Four</li></ul></body></html>";
13.        }
14.    }
15.     
16.    public string HtmlDataValid
17.    {
18.        get
19.        {
20.            return "<!DOCTYPE html><html><body><ul><li>One</li><li>Two</li></ul><table><tr>Coffee</tr><tr>Black hot drink</tr><tr>Milk</tr><tr>White cold drink</tr></table><ul><li>Three</li><li>Four</li></ul></body></html>";
21.        }
22.    }
23. 
24.    private void SetBrokenData(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
25.    {
26.        emailContentTextBox.Document = new HtmlFormatProvider().Import(this.HtmlDataBroken);
27.    }
28. 
29.    private void SetValidData(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
30.    {
31.        emailContentTextBox.Document = new HtmlFormatProvider().Import(this.HtmlDataValid);
32.    }
33.}

So, maybe you can suggest the solution of this issue or another control for my needs?

Best regards,
Dzmitry

Hello Dzmitry,
 
 Thank you for contacting us.

Our RadRichTextBox do not support description lists at this stage. I will add this as feature request to out to do list. It will be with low priority as it is feature of the html format and our RadRichTextBox is closer to word processor rather than html editor.

As workaround I can suggest you to preprocess the document and change the dl, dt and dd tags to paragraphs with left margin in order to position the text correctly.

I hope this information is helpful for you.

Regards,
