Hi Daniel,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Our SfRichTextBoxAdv provides API support to insert text at the current selection position. The following code sample illustrates how to insert predefined text at current cursor position.


<RichTextBoxAdv:SfRichTextBoxAdv x:Name="richTextBoxAdv" xmlns:RichTextBoxAdv="using:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.RichTextBoxAdv" />


richTextBoxAdv.Selection.InsertText("Hello world");

We have also attached the sample to demonstrate the same. Please find the sample from following location. Try running the sample and let us know if this helps you.
