Paragraph and Tabs Dialogs

The Paragraph dialog enables end-users to format paragraphs (change the alignment of text and spacing between lines, specify paragraph indents, etc.).

End-users can invoke this dialog using the Paragraph group's dialog box launcher on the Home ribbon tab. Refer to the Lesson 1 - Create a Simple Rich Text Editor for details on how to provide the Ribbon UI for the RichEditControl.

The Paragraph dialog is also available from the context menu.

From the Paragraph dialog, end-users can invoke the Tabs dialog allowing them to set the tab stops and their characteristics.

To invoke the Paragraph and Tabs dialogs you can use the ShowParagraphFormCommand and ShowTabsFormCommand commands.

To programmatically modify paragraph formatting, use the Paragraph object or ParagraphProperties interface. You can access the collection of paragraphs (the Paragraph objects) in a document via the SubDocument.Paragraphs property and paragraphs in a particular section via Section.Paragraphs. To access the interface for a particular document range, use the SubDocument.BeginUpdateParagraphs and SubDocument.EndUpdateParagraphs pair of methods.

To modify tab stops in a particular paragraph, use the ParagraphPropertiesWithTabs.BeginUpdateTabs and ParagraphPropertiesWithTabs.EndUpdateTabs paired methods .

To get an example on how to modify paragraph formatting in code, refer to the How to: Change Formatting of the Current Paragraph document.
