RichEditControl.CreateNewDocument Method

Creates and loads a new empty document. Optionally raises the DocumentClosing event.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.RichEdit
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.RichEdit.v19.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Parameters

raiseDocumentClosing
Type: Boolean
true, to raise the DocumentClosing event; otherwise, false.

Return value

Type: Boolean
true, if a new document is created and loaded; otherwise, false.

Expanded Remarks

The CreateNewDocument helps prevent users from losing unsaved changes when a new document is created.

If the raiseDocumentClosing parameter is set to true and the RichEditControl's document has unsaved changes (the Modified property is true), the DocumentClosing event is fired.

By handling the DocumentClosing event, you can set e.Cancel to true to cancel unloading a document. A new document will not be created and the CreateNewDocument method returns false.

If the new document was created and successfully loaded, the CreateNewDocument method returns true.
