Hi Lorenz,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Regarding your requirement to utilize Silverlight RTE control in Light Switch:

We have prepared a sample to illustrate the same by adding Silverlight Office UI Demo sample as custom control for light switch application. Please find the sample from below link.

Sample link:

Regarding your requirement to bind Entity to RTE control:

For binding with XAMLText/HTMLText property, please note that these 2 property will not be updated dynamically on each modifications done in RichTextBoxAdv, rather it will be updated only on accessing the XAMLText/HTMLText property (In Getter method). So make use of LayoutUpdated event, to get the content modifications done by the user in RichTextBoxAdv control and update the XAMLText to XAMLContent of view model.

Note: RichTextBoxAdv control has its own flow document structure which is different from Microsoft flow document. Hence RTE control doesn’t accept other XAML structure which isn’t compliant with it.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Example provided this does not make the main part of the implementation, it is the connection with LS Layer Data.

As if that connection happen?
