Dear Support,

Suppose I create programmatically a table of 3 rows by 2 columns...

TableAdv table = new TableAdv();
for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
     TableRowAdv row = new TableAdvRow();
     for (int j = 0; j < 2; j++)
          TableCellAdv cell = new TableCellAdv
               CellFormat = userDefinedCellFormat

... then add it to my SfRichTextBoxAdv control...


... and select a series of cells programmatically, in this case, the cells of the 2nd row...

TextPosition beg = this.Document.GetTextPosition("0;0;1;0;0;0");
TextPosition end = this.Document.GetTextPosition("0;0;1;1;0;0");
this.Selection.Select(beg, end);

Using the Merge Cells command...


... has no effect on the selected cells and so I want to see how those cells, or any combination of contiguous cells that are selected, can be merged programmatically. Is this possible?

Note: If I use commands to create the table and to do the selection, the Merge Cells command works. But everything needs to be done programmatically, so commands can't be used.

Best Regards,
