RichEditDocumentServer.LoadDocument(Byte[], DocumentFormat) Method

Loads a document in the specified format from a byte array.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v21.2.Core.dll

Declaration

public bool LoadDocument(
    byte[] buffer,
    DocumentFormat format
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
buffer Byte[]

A byte array that contains document data.

format DocumentFormat

An enumeration member that specifies the format of the loaded document.

Returns

Type Description
Boolean

true if the document was successfully loaded; otherwise, false.

Remarks

If a document has a different format than the format parameter specifies, the RichEditDocumentServer.InvalidFormatException event fires.

You can use this LoadDocument method overload to load a document stored in an external database.

using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit;
// ...

RichEditDocumentServer wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer()

// Save a document to a byte array to store it in a database.
byte[] docBytes = wordProcessor.SaveDocument(DocumentFormat.OpenXml);

// ...

// Load the saved document from a byte array.
wordProcessor.LoadDocument(docBytes, DocumentFormat.OpenXml);

Tip

Use the RichEditDocumentServer.DocumentLoaded event to determine when you can safely modify the document model. Handle the DocumentLayout.DocumentFormatted event to check document layout-related data and objects.
