Using XamlFormatProvider

XamlFormatProvider makes it easy to import and export RadDocument to/from XAML format. This is the native format of RadRichTextBox and Using it guarantees that anything in the document will be preserved exactly the same as it is in the control.

To use XamlFormatProvider, you should add a reference to:

  • Telerik.Windows.Documents.FormatProviders.Xaml.dll


In order to import a XAML document, you can use the overloads of the Import() method.
