HI.

What are the different sources that can be used for the RadBook? I know that you can use images, but what else?.
Can you use a word/ppt/pdf document as a source? Up to now, I had to convert all pages to images, load them in an observable collection, and point the collection as the source for the RadBook.

Can I assign a word document as a source, without doing any conversions?

Regards

Eduan

Hi Eduan Marais,

RadBook is an ItemsControl whih accepts any XAML content. It do not provide converters for PDF or Word documents for the moment.

Hello Robert,

Thanks for the feedback. We will probably be working on a PDF viewer during Q3 of 2011. However I cannot bind to that 100%, so stay tuned for updates.

Hello Kjetil,

With the Q3 2011 release we introduced the beta version of our PDF Viewer. You can examine its demo here.

You'd use RichTextBox control

Hi Vitali,

At the moment the PDFViewer can be used as a stand-alone control for displaying pdf files or along with the RadRichTextBox control to display a pdf document exported by the RadRichTextBox control.

However, the PDFViewer cannot yet be integrated with the RadBook control. But the RadRichTextBox can easily be integrated with the RadBook control which allows displaying text documents in the RadBook control out-of-the-box. This demo demonstrates such an integration.

Kind regards,

I know that. Not only RadRichTextBox, but .NET RichTextBox as well.

My previous post was the reply to ones, who are looking for displaying DOC files. They could export DOC as RTF and show them out in the Book control.

By the way the Glyph quality inside RichTextBox is quite well. ;)
