Word inspired rich text editor.

Xtra Rich Editors allows you to introduce advanced text editing capabilities into your next application with ease. It provides comprehensive text formatting options, mail-merge and a rich collection of end-user options. When your application requires rich text editing and you want to replicate many of the key features found in Microsoft Word, like mail merge, table support, and floating objects, you need not look any further than the DevExpress WinForms Rich Text Editor Control. And because it ships with built-in app templates, you are only minutes away from introducing these powerful features in your next project.

Multiple File Format Support
The DevExpress WinForms Rich Editor supports loading, saving and converting many text-based document formats including DOCX, HTML, RTF, TXT, XML, ODT, EPUB, MHT, and DOC. The Xtra Rich Edit Suite also supports conversion to PDF. Additionally, you can convert (load or save) documents from one format to another automatically using the DevExpress Rich Edit Document Server.

Integrated WinForms Document Server
By using the DevExpress Document Server and its API, you can automate common text processing tasks on the server, without the need to introduce a text editor in your application’s UI. In addition, the Rich Text Editor provides a set of automation features which allow you to use document fields for inserting values of document variables, or even generating an automated Table of Contents or Table of Figures.

Easy-to-Use Mail Merge
The DevExpress Rich Text Editor offers comprehensive mail merge options for a variety of business requirements. With it, you can generate many unique document types, including form letters, mailing shots, mailing labels and personalized business documents. Xtra Rich Edit supports images, and offers enhanced configurability and processing through multiple mail merge specific events. For advanced use cases, you can implement and register your own URI stream provider to intercept custom field codes. In addition, Xtra Rich Edit ships with Master-Detail mail merge support, allowing you to combine the utility of the Document Server and document variables to create custom reports (including catalogs, header/detail invoices or statements).

In addition to basic text formatting, you can enable live syntax highlighting so that text formatting is applied based on your document content/syntax similar to Visual Studio's code editor.
  • Extensive Table Support - The DevExpress WinForms Rich Text Editor fully supports tables. You can nest tables, split and merge table cells, insert and remove rows and apply borders and shading to individual cells.
