Problem for image in RTF string generated by Aspose


I created an Aspose doc by reading a word doc wich contains an image, and saved to memorystream as rtf and genrated string. Then I used this string as the RTF of a RichTextBox, but image does not appear. But when I save this to a rtf file instead of saving to a stream as rtf, image appears. Please verify the case and tell me whats the problem with the rtf string genrated by Aspose.

Please go through the following cases to get a clear idea.

case 1.

//create an aspose doc using a word doc contains an image

Document doc = new Document(@"C:\test\1.doc");

MemoryStream saveStream = new MemoryStream();

doc.Save(saveStream, SaveFormat.Rtf);

byte[] rtfBytes = saveStream.GetBuffer();

//Get string from byte array

string rtfString = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(rtfBytes, 0, (int)saveStream.Length);


rtfBytes = null;

richTextBox1.Rtf = rtfString;

// result : image is not shown

case 2:

//create an aspose doc using a word doc contains an image

Document doc = new Document(@"C:\test\1.doc");

doc.Save(@"C:\Documents and Settings\abdul.ali\Desktop\asposeRTFFromAsposeDoc.rtf", SaveFormat.Rtf);

//result : image appears

case 3:

//create a word doc with the same image in it, save as rtf file, get the rtf string [open with notepad] and save as a txt file. read the content and set as rtf to a richtextbox

System.IO.TextReader tr = new System.IO.StreamReader(@"C:\test\1.txt");

string str = tr.ReadToEnd();

richTextBox1.Rtf = str;


//result : image appears in Richtextbox.

Please verify and give me the reason if there is anything wrong in the rtf generated by Aspose, or it could be a mistake of mine.

Thank you,
