RichEditControl.LoadDocument(Stream, DocumentFormat) Method

Loads a document from a stream, specifying the document format.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public virtual bool LoadDocument(
    Stream stream,
    DocumentFormat documentFormat
)
Public Overridable Function LoadDocument(
    stream As Stream,
    documentFormat As DocumentFormat
) As Boolean

Parameters

Name Type Description
stream Stream

The stream from which to load a document.

documentFormat DocumentFormat

One of the DocumentFormat enumeration members indicating the document format.

Returns

Type Description
Boolean

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

Remarks

The source stream can be non-seekable. In this case, the stream is buffered automatically. After loading the document, the stream remains open.

If the document is in a different format than specified or the passed stream is null, the RichEditControl.InvalidFormatException event fires.

Determine a moment when the document model can be safely modified using the RichEditControl.DocumentLoaded event. Handle the DocumentLayout.DocumentFormatted event to check the loaded document's layout.
