WinForms RichEdit (RTF) Control - Oh Oh, Could it Really Be?

Thinking Out Loud
10 July 2008

Since Im already in the doghouse with R&D, I figured another blog about another upcoming component for WinForms cant hurt....So here it goes.

As the title of this post implies, we are hard at work on a RichText (RTF) control for WinForms. Though not yet ready for prime time, those of you who've asked about this control should be pleased to know that we are doing our very best to ready it for DXperience v2008 vol 3....due at in the final quarter of 2008.

Im certain you all know that creating a practical and effective RTF control is not a simple task. If you're like me and have had to introduce word processing type capabilities into your application, then you know what an absolute nightmare it really is...Over the years, I must have gone through a half dozen RTF controls and the scars related to the experience remain.

Opening up the RTF control "can-of-worms" will, Im certain, lead to many requests...many demands...and ultimately, the need for a mini MS Word solution. Our hope is to address as many of the needs our customers have and still retain our sanity...........

In any are the early preview screenshots of the control in action....
