A FlowDocument object that represents the contents of the RichTextBox.

By default, this property is set to an empty FlowDocument. Specifically, the empty FlowDocument contains a single Paragraph, which contains a single Run which contains no text.

This property is set while a change block has been activated.

Examples

The following example illustrates the use of this property.

// Create a simple FlowDocument to serve as content.
FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("Simple FlowDocument")));
// Create an empty, default RichTextBox.
RichTextBox rtb = new RichTextBox();
// This call sets the contents of the RichTextBox to the specified FlowDocument.
rtb.Document = flowDoc;
// This call gets a FlowDocument representing the contents of the RichTextBox.
FlowDocument rtbContents = rtb.Document;
' Create a simple FlowDocument to serve as content.
Dim flowDoc As New FlowDocument(New Paragraph(New Run("Simple FlowDocument")))
' Create an empty, default RichTextBox.
Dim rtb As New RichTextBox()
' This call sets the contents of the RichTextBox to the specified FlowDocument.
rtb.Document = flowDoc
' This call gets a FlowDocument representing the contents of the RichTextBox.
Dim rtbContents As FlowDocument = rtb.Document

Remarks

A FlowDocument may only be hosted by a single RichTextBox. Specifying a single FlowDocument as the contents of multiple RichTextBox controls is not supported.
