SaveDocumentAsCommand Class

Invokes the File dialog that prompts for a file name, and saves a document in a file with the specified name and format.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.Commands

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v22.1.Core.dll


public class SaveDocumentAsCommand :


To adjust the SaveAs dialog settings or to accomplish other specific tasks you can substitute the default command with your own custom descendant.

A custom command inherits from the SaveDocumentAsCommand class and overrides the protected ExecuteCore method. To substitute a default command with a custom command, create a new command factory - the class that implements the IRichEditCommandFactoryService interface and intercepts a call that creates a SaveDocumentAsCommand command. Register the new command factory via the IRichEditDocumentServer.ReplaceService<T> method.

The technique is illustrated in the following code snippet.

using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit;
using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.Export;
using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.Services;
        public Form1() {

            CustomRichEditCommandFactoryService commandFactory = 
                new CustomRichEditCommandFactoryService(richEditControl1, 

You can also use the RichEditControl.SaveDocumentAs API method to achieve the same result.
