public virtual void SaveDocument(
    Stream stream,
    DocumentFormat documentFormat


Name Type Description
stream Stream

The stream to which to output the document.

documentFormat DocumentFormat

One of the DocumentFormat enumeration values.


You can check for the Document.RequiredExportCapabilities to be sure that the chosen export format supports them.

When the specified document format requires that a certain type of content should be saved as external objects, as is the case for HTML format, the proper use of the SaveDocument becomes more complex. Handle the RichEditControl.BeforeExport event to specify exporter options, such as the IExporterOptions.TargetUri and the HtmlDocumentExporterOptions.


The SaveDocument method call does not automatically change the RichEditControl.Modified property value.
