  ConverterIndex: Integer): Boolean;

(changed in version 18)


FileName is a name of file to import.

ConverterIndex is an index of import converter (in ImportConverters list)

This method:

1.clears Stream;

2.imports data from the file to Stream;

3.reads data from Stream in rv, using rv.LoadRTFFromStream,

4.clears Stream.

You can provide a visual indication for the conversion progress using OnConverting event.

Note: Internally, the component converts the file name to OEM (DOS) encoding to pass it to the converter. If FileName contains characters that cannot be converted to OEM encoding, this method fails.

Return value:

True if the import was successful, False if not.
