A quick way to convert RichText to HTML.

A window showing a Rich Editor and the resutling HTML code

Introduction

This code was written to solve the problem of having RichText data needing to be displayed in HTML, both in HTML reports and in ASP.NET web pages.

Using the code

Use of the code is exceptionally simple. Simply create a new instance of the class and then use the properties to first pass in the RichText to parse and then use the html property to get the resulting HTML. (The code file for the class is attached to this article).

''Assume you have a RichTextBox on your 
''form named rtbFoo and a button named btnBar

  Private Sub btnBar_Click(ByVal sender as object, _
          e as System.EventArgs) Handles btnBar.Click
    dim r2h as new RTFtoHTML
    r2h.rtf = rtbFoo.rtf
    messagebox.show(r2h.html)
  End Sub

In this version probably. It is the very first version. In yhe c# version no. As it takes and parses the raw rtf.
 
Now here is an idea. The code is out there free and open you could improve it and post your own version with fixes or you can continue being abusive about it. I dont care which... but really? Do you feel more important now?
 
One of these days i will release the new version when i have time. On that day a whole host of issues will be fixed. Until then you will just have to deal. Or see other examples that are on codeproject dealing with this.
