I was able to reproduce the problem and logged it for research. I noticed that if I save the non working RTF file after that in MS Word 2007 the problem disappears. It seems related to WordPad, but our developers should research it in more details and hopefully fix it. If possible, instruct your users to edit the RTF files in MS Word instead of WordPad.
As to the silent update: Attach an eventhandler to the OnExportContent event and interrupt the ExportContent event by calling Response.Redirect(url). Therefore the browser will not ask whether to open or save the content.
You can find attached here
an example demonstrating how to export the editor's content as PDF on the server using the new OnExportContent
event property of RadEditor. The solution for RTF export should be similar.
Here is additional information about the RTF import and export features of RadEditor:
RadEditor uses two different free libraries to provide Import to RTF
and Export to RTF
The first one used to provide RFT to HTML
importation is available in this CodeProject's article: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/RtfConverter.aspx
The library used for HTML to RTF
exportation is available here http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/RtfConverter.aspx
As you can see both libraries are written by different developers and they are not fully compatible with each other.
For your convenience I prepared a list of know limitations of the Import and Export features of both libraries:
RFT to HTML (Import)
- supported. I was able to export bold formatting from the provided by you Bold.rtf file.
underline - supported
foreground and background colors - supported
table elements - unsupported
indentations - unsupported
HTML to RTF (export)
underline - unsupported
foreground and background colors - unsupported
table elements - partially supported
indentations - supported
You can see the following video which demonstrates how the RTF import and export features work:
You should also note that good RTF import and export tools are very expensive and if we integrate such tools in RadEditor, the price of the Telerik suite will be increased a lot. That is why if you are currently not satisfied with the offered by RadEditor RTF functionality, you can search in Internet for another free or paid RTF to HTML importation and HTML to RTF exportation tools and we will help you to integrate them with RadEditor.
