RichEditControl.LoadDocument() Method

Invokes the "Open..." file dialog, creates a specific importer and loads the file.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.RichEdit

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.RichEdit.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public virtual bool LoadDocument()
Public Overridable Function LoadDocument As Boolean

Returns

Type Description
Boolean

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

Remarks

File extension determines the document format. The following file extensions are recognized:

  • DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT, HTM, HTML, MHT, XML, EPUB;
  • ODT - non-encrypted files only.

If the file is in a different format than its extension indicates, or encrypted, it is not loaded. However, you can subscribe to the RichEditControl.InvalidFormatException event which occurs in this situation and examine the RichEditInvalidFormatExceptionEventArgs.Exception property to determine a reason for not loading a document.

TIP

Determine a moment when the document model can be safely modified using the RichEditControl.DocumentLoaded event. Call the LoadDocument method in the Form.Loaded event handler to work with the DocumentLoaded event. Handle the DocumentLayout.DocumentFormatted event to check the loaded document's layout.
