Converting RTF on the Clipboard To XAML


Here is a simple function that will convert RTF data on the clipboard to XAML:


 


        /// <summary>


        /// Returns the text contents of the clipboard as XAML


        /// </summary>


        /// <returns></returns>


        public static string GetFormattedXamlFromClipboard() {


            System.Windows.Controls.RichTextBox box = new System.Windows.Controls.RichTextBox();


            box.SelectAll();


            box.Paste();


            box.SelectAll();


            box.Copy();


            return System.Windows.Clipboard.GetData(System.Windows.DataFormats.Xaml).ToString();


        }


 


Now you can easily copy-paste C# code and retrieve it as XAML, syntax highlighting preserved.


 


A better example would be converting an RTF file to XAML. To do it you have to load the file in a RichTextBox and then use this line:



return System.Windows.Clipboard.GetData(System.Windows.DataFormats.Xaml).ToString();


 


to extract the XAML.
