DocumentRange AppendRtfText(
    string rtfText


Name Type Description
rtfText String

A string containing data in RTF format.


Type Description

A DocumentRange representing a range with appended content.


The AppendRtfText method imports the specified string in RTF format into the internal document model. After the string is successfully imported, the new document model is inserted at the end of the main document.

The RTF string applies its paragraph and character formatting to the destination paragraph of the document to which it is appended. The RTF string is incorporated as a range, not as a section, therefore all section details (header, footer, page and print layout), contained in the RTF string, are lost.


If the AppendRtfText method is called for an empty document (newly created, e.g., by using the CreateNewDocument method), then the specified RTF string is loaded as a new document, applying its header, footer etc.

If the text being inserted contains document styles which are not present in the current document, the styles are copied to the resulting document.

If the document whose content is being inserted contains floating objects, such as pictures or text boxes, they are inserted into the corresponding positions in a newly created range.
