Remarks

IMPORTANT

The RichEditDocumentServerExtensions class is defined in the DevExpress.Docs.v20.2.dll assembly. Add this assembly to your project to use the RichEditDocumentServerExtensions members. You need an active license for the DevExpress Office File API Subscription or DevExpress Universal Subscription to use this library in production code.

You can use this SaveDocumentAsync method overload to store a document in an external database. Handle the RichEditDocumentServer.BeforeExport event to specify export options.

The SaveDocumentAsync method call does not change the RichEditDocumentServer.Modified property value.

IMPORTANT

Take into account the following when you call this method:

  • The events fired by this method's call may occur in a different thread than the target operation.

  • The operation is not thread safe (documents should not be accessed simultaneously by different threads). Wait until the operation is completed before working with the document, i.e., use the await operator.
