Hello everyone

I can export texblock.text and label.text to word. But there is no styling found back in the word document
For example the background-color won't export. I use this as a conformation document.
How can you also export the style of the form and can you export a table (make a table when the form is exported to word? in thios case 1 row 2 columns)

code for export works fine

//Save to document
                String strtxt = textBox3.Text + label5.Text;
                TextWriter sw = new StreamWriter(@"C:\Users\filename");
                sw.WriteLine(strtxt);
                sw.Close();

Thanks everyone

If you use a RichTextBox you can export the text as an .rtf which will include any format styling you've done, which can then be read by Word.

@tinstaafl and others
Thanks, but when I make the richtext box background color blue
and add an textbox in the richtexbox..still the style won't be export to word of wordpad

Is this because it isn't saved as a rtf file?
Or?

Thanks

Most likely. The RichTextBox has a method to save the contents to rtf(richTextBox1.SaveFile("myFile.rtf");)

@all,

It's impossible to insert a textbox.text into a richtextbox. Or am I doing something wrong?

The idea is that there are some textboxes in the richtextbox where a user can insert some valuables and automaticaly count the valuables and save them in a txt file with styling. Or is there an other way?

Saving the richtextbox isn't a problem..!

Thanks

The RichTextBox can accept a users input. Why do you want to insert a TextBox into thte RichTextBox?

Hello Tinstaafl,

This is a quick form I build for the example. When saving, the file is 0 kb

Why? I would like to make a winform, but also style this, so its printable and looks nice.

When I export the textblock.Text to a file I can't style them.

Thanks

I think you're missing the point. The RichTextBox replaces textBox1. Assuming the RichtTextBox is named RichTextBox1, you would set the style of the contents using the methods that are a part of the RichTextBox class. When you're ready to save the contents you use the SaveFile method of the RichTextBox class to create a file with the name of your choice:

'Set the text
RichTextBox1.Text = "Test"

'Use a Select method to select some text
RichTextBox1.SelectAll()

'Format the selected text
RichTextBox1.SelectionBackColor = Color.LightGray
RichTextBox1.SelectionColor = Color.Blue

'Clear the selection to leave just the formatted text
RichTextBox1.SelectionLength = 0

'Save the formatted text in a .rtf type file that can be opened by most if not all word processing applications(Word, WordPad,OpenOffice Writer, etc.)
RichTextBox1.SaveFile("C:\Temp\test.rtf")

For more information on the RichtextBox here's the Help page for it

Richtextbox can be used for exporting styles like font,Color,Background colr etc.Check the below example for richTextbox.

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
    public Form1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
    }

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        richTextBox1.Font = new Font("Consolas", 18f, FontStyle.Bold);
        richTextBox1.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue;
        string[] words =
        {
        "Dot",
        "Net",
        "Perls",
        "is",
        "a",
        "nice",
        "website."
        };
        Color[] colors =
        {
        Color.Aqua,
        Color.CadetBlue,
        Color.Cornsilk,
        Color.Gold,
        Color.HotPink,
        Color.Lavender,
        Color.Moccasin
        };
        for (int i = 0; i < words.Length; i++)
        {
        string word = words[i];
        Color color = colors[i];
        {
            richTextBox1.SelectionBackColor = color;
            richTextBox1.AppendText(word);
            richTextBox1.SelectionBackColor = Color.AliceBlue;
            richTextBox1.AppendText(" ");
        }
        }
    }
    }

Super...I really missed the point!
But now Its working like a charm

Now we can start the build...
Thanks
