The DevExpress Rich Text Editor for WPF allows you to introduce mail merge functionality in your WPF applications.
Introducing this capability is a breeze – simply specify a data source for your editor and add individual data-bound fields to your document.
Unlike other editors, our WPF Rich Text mail merge feature works with images. You can implement and register your own URI stream provider to intercept custom field codes.
It can substitute codes with images fetched from your database. Our demos demonstrate this implementation.
Master and Detail templates can be nested within the basic merge template to create a master-detail report.
This technique makes use of the RichEditDocumentServer which performs mail merge operations at the master and detail levels while delivering a high degree of configurability and flexibility.
Additional Mail Merge Features
- Mail Merge Events
Events are fired before mail merge starts, before each record is merged, after each record is merged and after mail merge is finished. Interim documents are available to you for custom processing.
- Progress Indication
The Progress Indication Service allows you to create a progress bar or gauge which provides feedback on the current state of merge operations.
It activates automatically for time consuming events, such as mail merge or lengthy import/export operations.
- Merge Field Mappings
The DevExpress Rich Edit Control allows you to change display names of mail merge fields. This feature is useful when you wish to avoid the display of obscure or lengthy field names or simply to hide unwanted fields.
