Comment Interface

A comment in the document - a text note that is attached to a DocumentRange.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v19.1.Core.dll


public interface Comment


Comments are contained in the CommentCollection, which is accessed by the SubDocument.Comments property.

Use the CommentCollection.Create to create a new comment with the specified settings.


When the end-user adds a comment via UI commands, the comment’s author is obtained from the CommentOptions.Author property.



document.LoadDocument("Grimm.docx", DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.DocumentFormat.OpenXml)
Dim docRange As DocumentRange = document.Paragraphs(2).Range
Dim commentAuthor As String = "Johnson Alphonso D"
document.Comments.Create(docRange, commentAuthor, Date.Now)
