Load document with specific page number as starting page and find within document.


I have installed SyncFusion Essential Studio for WinRT. I want to use SfRichTextBoxAdv with some more feature. I want to give my consumer to load the document and then he can enter page number so document will skip previous pages and go to entered page. How can I achieve that ? How can I allow my users to search within document ? Is there any control which can display excel files ? Thanks.

Hi Farhan,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Regarding Load document with specific page number as starting page and find within document in Windows Store apps:
At this moment we do not have support to navigate pages from code behind and search the contents in SfRichTextBoxAdv control and this feature requirement has already been added in our features list. We do have plans to add unsupported features incrementally in our future releases based on feature importance. At this moment we cannot provide any concrete timeline for this feature. We will let you know once this feature has been implemented.

Regarding control to display Excel files in Windows Store apps:
At this moment we do not have any UI control to read Excel documents in Windows Store apps. We have a class library (XlsIO) for creating and manipulating Excel files in non UI environment; kindly make use of it, if it fits for your requirement.

For more information regarding the functionalities of RichTextBoxAdv, and XlsIO please do refer our UG documentation from the following link.
