How to load a RTF document in C# and VB.Net

How to load a RTF document in C# and VB.Net


  1. Load from a file:
    
    DocumentCore dc = DocumentCore.Load(@"d:\Book.rtf");
    
    The dc object represents a document loaded into memory. The file format is detected automatically from the file extension: ".rtf".

    After loading you'll get the document presented as the Tree Of Objects, where the root node is DocumentCore class.

    To guarantee that a loadable content is really RTF and set some loading options, use RtfLoadOptions as 2nd parameter.

    
    DocumentCore dc = DocumentCore.Load(@"d:\Book.rtf", new RtfLoadOptions());
    
  2. Load using a memory:
    
                // Let us say we already have a RTF document as array of bytes.
                DocumentCore dc = null;
                using (MemoryStream rtfStream = new MemoryStream(rtfBytes))
                {
                    dc = DocumentCore.Load(rtfStream, new RtfLoadOptions());
                }
                // Here we can do with our document 'dc' anything we need.
