// ...

public XRRichText CreateXRRichText(){
    // Create an XRRichText object.
    XRRichText xrRichText1 = new XRRichText();

    // Set its height to be calculated automatically,
    // and make its borders visible.
    xrRichText1.CanGrow = true;
    xrRichText1.CanShrink = true;         
    xrRichText1.Borders = DevExpress.XtraPrinting.BorderSide.All;

    // Create an array of lines and assign it to the rich text.
    string[] boxLines = new String[3];
    boxLines[0] = "Line 1";
    boxLines[1] = "Line 2";
    boxLines[2] = "Line 3";
    xrRichText1.Lines = boxLines;

    // Export its contents to a text file.
