The command triggers the server-side InsertContentToClient event. Use its handler to create a server-side model via the RichEditDocumentServer class (see Word Processing Document API) and pass it to the client using the Result parameter as demonstrated in the code example below:

<dx:ASPxButton runat="server" ID="InsertText" Text="Insert Text">
    <ClientSideEvents Click="onInsertTextClick" />
<dx:ASPxButton runat="server" ID="InsertModel" Text="Insert Model">
    <ClientSideEvents Click="onInsertModelClick" />
<dx:ASPxRichEdit ID="ASPxRichEdit1" ClientInstanceName="richEdit" runat="server" 
    WorkDirectory="~\App_Data\WorkDirectory" OnInsertContentToClient="ASPxRichEdit1_InsertContentToClient">
function onInsertTextClick() {
    richEdit.commands.insertContentFromServer.execute('text', 0,;
function onInsertModelClick() {
    richEdit.commands.insertContentFromServer.execute('model', 0,;
protected void ASPxRichEdit1_InsertContentToClient(object sender, DevExpress.Web.ASPxRichEdit.InsertContentToClientEventArgs e) {
    if (e.RequestId == "text") {
        e.Result = "Text To Insert";
    if (e.RequestId == "model") {
        var docServer = new RichEditDocumentServer();
        var document = docServer.Document;

        document.AppendText("Model To Insert");
        DocumentRange myRange = document.Paragraphs[0].Range;
        CharacterProperties charProps = document.BeginUpdateCharacters(myRange);
        charProps.FontSize = 30;
        charProps.Bold = true;
        e.Result = document;
