    I'm making a Word application, and I need export a text in string when the user enter text in the RichTextBox, in html and txt, when the user save this document. 
    I've been looking at different posts of the forum, and I don't get a string with the plain text format. I'm using -Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Txt-, as I have seen in other post (

    ITextBasedDocumentFormatProvider exporter = new TxtFormatProvider();
    string text = exporter.Export (document);

    But if this is correct, I can't recognize me ITextBasedDocumentFormatProvider interface, and therefore not get the plain text. I'm doing something wrong or I need some assembly?

    On the other hand, to export the text in html conducted the following method:
    public string ExportToHtml(RadDocument document)
        IDocumentFormatProvider provider = new HtmlFormatProvider();
        string exportValue = String.Empty;
        using (MemoryStream output = new MemoryStream())
            provider.Export(document, output);
            output.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
            using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(output))
                exportValue = reader.ReadToEnd();
        return exportValue;

    Is it right?

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hello Antonio Roman,
    Exporting RadDocument to HTML string could be done with the following sample code(you will need a reference to the Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Html.dll assembly where the HtmlFormatProvider is located):
    string text = new HtmlFormatProvider().Export(richTextBox.Document);

    and here is how to export the document as plain text (you don't need additional references for this one because the TxtFormatProvider is located in the same assembly as RadDocument - Telerik.Windows.Documents.dll):
    string text = new TxtFormatProvider().Export(richTextBox.Document);

    Please post back if you have any other questions.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Kamasani,

    The styles can be exported as Classes and Inline, the default value being "Classes". This customization option is available through the export settings of HtmlFormatProvider. Please refer to this article for more information on how this can be done.
