Document.DefaultCharacterProperties Property

Provides access to default character formatting for the current document.

Namespace:DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native
Assembly:DevExpress.RichEdit.v17.2.Core.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: CharacterPropertiesBase
A CharacterPropertiesBase interface that enables you to specify character properties.

Expanded Remarks

The DefaultCharacterProperties property enables you to specify default character formatting for a loaded or newly created document. These settings override the RichEditControlCompatibility.DefaultFontName and RichEditControlCompatibility.DefaultFontSize property values.

When formatting is reset by executing the ClearFormattingCommand, character properties are set to default values specified via the DefaultCharacterProperties property.

Expanded Example

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E1398.

The following code snippet illustrates how to apply default character formatting to a just loaded document. The DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.RichEditControl.DocumentLoaded event is handled and the DefaultCharacterProperties settings are modified.
