RTF to text

RTF to text

RTF to text

Hello everybody.

I have this application in which I use RTF control for data entry.
Today I wanted to output my data to a text file to use with other application but the text was not correct.
So is there a way to output the formatted text to a plain text.

thank you

RE: RTF to text


Check the GetText function of the RTFTextBoxObject in the help.


RE: RTF to text

I went thru the help and tried some examples but the result was the same string (still in rtf format with extra characters).

Can you please help me more


RE: RTF to text

Sorry my mistake that I didnt explain my need for this.
I have a table contains a memo field which I enter formatted text in it (as an RTF field).

Now I need to seach inside that table for some info from that field.

Before, my entry was text so it was running fine but after moving to RTF I get only the result of unformated part.


RE: RTF to text


Create a dummy hidden window with a RTF Text Control or a hidden RTF Text Control in your existing window, assign the memo column to it, use the GetText function and search for your string.


RE: RTF to text

Best Regards
