    Are there any plans to incorporate Razor syntax into the Rich Text Editor?

    Since Silverlight will be used primarily for LOB type applications in preference to using HTML5/JQuery type technologies I expect the desired usage for a WYSIWG editor will be different for SL app than for a generic web app.
    In my opinion the most common type of activities that would be required for a Rich Text Editor in LOB application incorporate both Merge functionality and various syntax highlighting. The very real requirements being for various exporting / printing / letter generation/ document template type activities, over actually editing content for say a website (for this you would stick to a HTML/JS based WYSIWYG). 
    I understand MailMerge type functionality already exists, but rather than stopping there I would like to see the ability for a user to pick/drop properties of a source object onto a document/artefact (the thing you are editing). With this thought in mind, why stop there and actually bring in RAZOR syntax. The key element would all be in the UX, proving a UI which shows both the static text/images etc. alongside the more dynamic elements such as merge fields, Razor snippets

    Hi David Weir,

    Thanks for your question!
    Razor is a server side technology that currently is not relevant to Silverlight. Thus we do not have any plans to incorporate it in the RadRichTextBox. However we do have plans to extend our MailMerge functionality to support features like expressions, conditions, etc.
