TRVOfficeConverter allows using text converters from Microsoft Office (32-bit versions) with TRichViews, for importing and exporting files in different formats.
The converters technology is obsolete: new versions of Microsoft Office do not use them. But old converters still may be used.
TRVOfficeConverter = class (TComponent)
(introduced in version 1.6)
There are two types of converters: for importing and for exporting files.
Export converters convert RTF (Rich Text Format) to other formats, import converters convert different formats to RTF.
If there are no converters installed, converters lists are empty.
Note: some converters are shipped with Windows.
There are two modes for using this components.
While converting, the component generates OnConverting event.
If PreviewMode property is set to True, converters do their work silently, without displaying any dialogs. They can also produce lower quality results in this mode (that depends on a converter).
This component is useful only in 32-bit applications, because converters are 32-bit DLLs.
