We have discussed how to load a text, rtf and vp files in C1PrintPreview controls in our following blogs : http://our.componentone.com/2012/06/15/loading-activex-vsprinter-documents-into-c1printdocument/ http://our.componentone.com/2012/05/28/how-to-view-text-or-richtext-files-in-c1-previewcontrol/ However, there are few customer who would rather use a C1PrintDocument instead in their application than loading these files first and then writing code for converting these into C1PrintDocument and THEN view them in the C1PrintPreview controls. Using this application, simply select any RTF, Text or an ActiveX VsPrinter document and save it into any C1PrintDocument format (c1d, c1db, c1dx). Once the file is generated, you can use it in your application without writing any extra code. :-) Note : A prerequisite for this application is to register VsPrint8.ocx file in your system. The Vsprint8.ocx is also attached in the application. Download C1DCreaterUtility
