Hi,
ReportMax works better and better for me.
But now:
In my WindowsForms Application there is a RichTextBox.
I have a textfield in a database which contains pure RTF Text like
{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\uc1\... and much more RTF coding here }
The Form shows all perfect. Users can edit RichText and save it to database.

When I connect the DataField in the report to the DataSourceField of my table,
reports textfield shows pure RTF text instead of formatted text like bold, italic etc.

Is there a way to convert the RTF code to readable, formatted text?
IF not, how can i solve this? Do you have any ideas?
And if not, is there a plan to extend ReportMax in that way?
I really need to have RTF Text in Forms and Reports.
Thanks in advance
best regards
Henner

Currently ReportMax 3.5 does not support RTF mode in the Textbox control. We are working on this as this is a good feature to have. There is no set date for the release of this feature, but we will update this thread once it becomes available.

Thanks for your answer Emad.
Would be nice to have that feature available in near future.

Looking foreward...
