As stated in http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/controls/radrichtextbox/getting-started/getting-started I added the below references to my WPF project and a simple XAML declaration of RadRichTextBox and the project builds fine and RadRichTextBox is visible in Visual Tree while debugging but it is not rendered on the screen using both VS 2015 and VS 2017. If I replace it with standard WPF RichTexBox everything works fine. I am unable to find anything on this problem in forums or in documentation so what is the problem here and how to resolve it?

Sample project attached (It's a zip file but it's not allowed so I changed the extension to jpg).

 

Telerik.Windows.Controls
Telerik.Windows.Data
Telerik.Windows.Documents
Telerik.Windows.Documents.Core
Telerik.Windows.Documents.Flow
System.ComponentModel.Composition

The problem was that I'm using NoXaml binaries and forgot to merge required resource dictionaries and define a style based on RichTextBoxStyle.

Hello Dean,

When using the NoXaml binaries it is mandatory to merge the required resources so you can see the controls. I noticed that you have already found this but I will post the relevant articles here for a future reference:

- Setting a Theme topic: Describes how you can use the NoXaml binaries and the implicit styles.
- Controls Dependencies article: Lists all the dependencies of each control in the suite.

Regards,
Tanya

Hi Russell,

Thank you for notifying us about that. I have warned the responsible team so they can fix that link. In the meantime, you can find the topic at https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/common-information/installation-installing-dependencies-wpf.

I have updated your Telerik points in appreciation for bringing the broken link to our attention.

Regards,
Tanya
