Name Type Description
htmlText String

A string containing data in HTML format.


Type Description

A DocumentRange representing a range with appended content.


The AppendHtmlText method imports the specified string in HTML format into the internal document model.


Do not include the meta charset attribute in the HTML string that is supplied to this method. It will result in incorrect character encoding.

If the HTML string contains links to external content, such as pictures, the corresponding attributes should contain a valid URL from which the content can be downloaded.

After the string is successfully imported, the new document model is inserted at the end of the main document.

If the Paragraph.ContextualSpacing property of the last paragraph is false (default), RichEditControl inserts additional space between inserted HTML paragraphs. To remove the extra space, set the Paragraph.ContextualSpacing option to true for paragraphs in the document and set the Paragraph.SpacingAfter property of the current paragraph and the Paragraph.SpacingBefore property of the next paragraph to zero (0).


If you want more control over the text before it is inserted, create an instance of the RichEditDocumentServer and load the string into it. Then, use the SubDocument.AppendDocumentContent method to append the modified document.
