Hi,

Does RichTextBox supports MS Word like TAB Stops (on the Ruler and from the Paragraph Properties dialogue box)?
It is supported in DEVEXPRESS silverlight RichEdit control, however I have not seen that feature in RichTextBox demos.
We have to support horizontal positional tabbing in a text editor, since we were not able to support that requirement using Rad Text Editor, we are exploring the Silverlight Text Editor controls to meet the requirement. Your quick response is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Indira.

Hello Indira,

Unfortunately RadRichTextBox does not support TabStops.
Pressing Tab or Ctrl+Tab either inserts tab or changes the paragraph indent with a predefined value (DocumentDefaultSettings.INDENT_STEP) with default value of 28 dip. You can test how it works in our online demo.
I hope that helps.

Hi,

Is there any way we could force the control to tab as with TabStops? I really need the user to have the ability to tab out of the control and into another.

Thanks.

Hi Tobias Riley,

We have added Word-like tab stops as a future enhancement to the control, but I cannot provide you with a specific timeline of when they will be implemented.
As for tabbing out of the control using Tab and Shift+Tab, this is possible by setting the AcceptsTab property of RadRichTextBox to "False". In that case, pressing Tab and Shift+Tab will move the focus to the other controls on the page instead of changing the indentation of the paragraphs.
I hope that answers your questions.

Kind regards,
