TextRange.Load(Stream, String) TextRange.Load(Stream, String) TextRange.Load(Stream, String) Method

Definition

Loads the current selection in a specified data format from a specified stream.

public:
 void Load(System::IO::Stream ^ stream, System::String ^ dataFormat);
public void Load (System.IO.Stream stream, string dataFormat);
member this.Load : System.IO.Stream * string -> unit

Parameters

stream
Stream Stream Stream

A readable stream that contains data to load into the current selection.

dataFormat
String String String

A data format to load the data as. Currently supported data formats are Rtf, Text, Xaml, and XamlPackage.

Exceptions

Occurs when stream or dataFormat is null.

Occurs when the specified data format is unsupported. May also be raised if content loaded from stream does not match the specified data format.

Examples

The following example demonstrates the use of the Load method.

// This method accepts an input stream and a corresponding data format.  The method
// will attempt to load the input stream into a TextRange selection, apply Bold formatting
// to the selection, save the reformatted selection to an alternat stream, and return 
// the reformatted stream.  
Stream BoldFormatStream(Stream inputStream, string dataFormat)
{
    // A text container to read the stream into.
    FlowDocument workDoc = new FlowDocument();
    TextRange selection = new TextRange(workDoc.ContentStart, workDoc.ContentEnd);
    Stream outputStream = new MemoryStream();

    try
    {
        // Check for a valid data format, and then attempt to load the input stream
        // into the current selection.  Note that CanLoad ONLY checks whether dataFormat
        // is a currently supported data format for loading a TextRange.  It does not 
        // verify that the stream actually contains the specified format.  An exception 
        // may be raised when there is a mismatch between the specified data format and 
        // the data in the stream. 
        if (selection.CanLoad(dataFormat))
            selection.Load(inputStream, dataFormat);
    }
    catch (Exception e) { return outputStream; /* Load failure; return a null stream. */ }

    // Apply Bold formatting to the selection, if it is not empty.
    if (!selection.IsEmpty)
        selection.ApplyPropertyValue(TextElement.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Bold);

    // Save the formatted selection to a stream, and return the stream.
    if (selection.CanSave(dataFormat))
        selection.Save(outputStream, dataFormat);

    return outputStream;
}

Private Function BoldFormatStream(ByVal inputStream As Stream, ByVal dataFormat As String) As Stream
    ' A text container to read the stream into.
    Dim workDoc As New FlowDocument()
    Dim selection As New TextRange(workDoc.ContentStart, workDoc.ContentEnd)
    Dim outputStream As Stream = New MemoryStream()

    Try
        ' Check for a valid data format, and then attempt to load the input stream
        ' into the current selection.  Note that CanLoad ONLY checks whether dataFormat
        ' is a currently supported data format for loading a TextRange.  It does not

        If selection.CanLoad(dataFormat) Then
            selection.Load(inputStream, dataFormat)
        End If
    Catch e As Exception ' Load failure return a null stream. 
        Return outputStream
    End Try

    ' Apply Bold formatting to the selection, if it is not empty.
    If Not selection.IsEmpty Then
        selection.ApplyPropertyValue(TextElement.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Bold)
    End If

    ' Save the formatted selection to a stream, and return the stream.
    If selection.CanSave(dataFormat) Then
        selection.Save(outputStream, dataFormat)
    End If

    Return outputStream
End Function

Remarks

If CanSeek is true for stream, content will be loaded from the beginning of the stream to the end of the stream. Otherwise, content will be read from the current Position to the end of the stream. When this method returns, stream is left open, and the current position within stream is undefined.

A load operation replaces the current selection with the newly loaded content.
