Hello,

Is the use of a RadRichTextBox inside a RadBook supposed to work in the Q2 release and if so are there any explicit limitations? 
I tested the example below with different LayoutModes. Paged and FlowNoWrap works while Flow does not. I am using Q2 Beta.

<Grid Background="Yellow">
    <telerikNavigation:RadBook>
        <telerikNavigation:RadBookItem>
            <telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox>
                <t:RadDocument LayoutMode="Flow">
                    <t:Section>
                        <t:Paragraph>
                            <t:Span>
                                Hello World!
                            </t:Span>
                        </t:Paragraph>
                    </t:Section>
                </t:RadDocument>
            </telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox>
        </telerikNavigation:RadBookItem>
    </telerikNavigation:RadBook>
</Grid>

Best regards,

Hello Ingemar Johansson,

You can try to resolve the flow mode issues if you set explicitly width/height of the control. As to Q2 release, you will be able to place RadRichTextBox in any other control. It is not clear though what scenario you wish to cover with RadBook. Can you please elaborate a bit more on that? Thank You.

Best wishes,

Hi Mike,

The issue with LayoutMode="Flow" was solved  when I added the row <telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox.Document> in my code. But that does not solve my basic need.

My scenario is the following:
On the left side in a RadBook there is a problem (teaching/testing scenario). On the right side there is a solution. It should be possible to go through the solution in steps i.e. only show parts of the solution. Currently I do this with TextBlocks. 

I want to take a text in the form of a RadDocument in XAML, put it in a RadRichTextBox in a RadBook page (left page). I also want to do the same thing dynamically in code on the right page as it is currently not possible to change the visability of a paragraph.( Otherwise I would solve this part with a binding).

The book should behave like a "book" i.e. no scrollviewers, no "half" pages that you get with the code below, just a "book page".

So imagine a RadDocument (edited in the DemoEditor)  with text etc in an amount that fits the size of a book page.  How do I get it to visually look like a "real" book page in a RadBook and not a book page with a control inside.
 
<telerikNavigation:RadBook Height="450" Width="800" Background="LightGray">
    <telerikNavigation:RadBookItem >
        <telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox>
            <telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox.Document>
                <t:RadDocument>
                    <t:Section>
                        <t:Paragraph>
                            <t:Span>
                                Hello World!
                            </t:Span>
                        </t:Paragraph>
                    </t:Section>
                </t:RadDocument>                      
            </telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox.Document>
        </telerikRichTextBox:RadRichTextBox>
    </telerikNavigation:RadBookItem>
</telerikNavigation:RadBook>

Hi Ingemar,

Even though we had lots of issues related to this scenario we finally managed to find a way to do it, an I hope this solution will compensate for the delay in our answer.

Please let me know what you think about this solution and if you have any suggestion for improvements.
