Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v20.1.dll


public void ExportToRtf(
    string path,
    RtfExportOptions options = null

    path As String,
    options As RtfExportOptions = Nothing


Name Type Description
path String

The path to the exported PDF file.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Default Description
options RtfExportOptions


The RTF export options. You can omit this parameter to use the current report export options.



Once the document export has started, it runs to completion and you cannot interrupt or cancel it.

This method exports a report to a RTF file with the specified RTF export options.

If the export options are not specified, the current report export options are used. To access the report export options, use the the report's XtraReport.ExportOptions property. The property contains the ExportOptions object whose ExportOptions.Rtf property provides access to the RtfExportOptions object that contains the RTF export options.


This method overwrites files with the same name without confirmation.

Use the ExportToRtfAsync(String, RtfExportOptions, CancellationToken) method instead of ExportToRtf to export a report asynchronously in a separate task.


This example demonstrates how to export a report to RTF format.

The project uses the XtraReport.ExportToRtf method with the RtfExportOptions object as a parameter.
