' Create a simple FlowDocument to serve as content.
Dim flowDoc As New FlowDocument(New Paragraph(New Run("Simple FlowDocument")))
' Create an empty, default RichTextBox.
Dim rtb As New RichTextBox()
' This call sets the contents of the RichTextBox to the specified FlowDocument.
rtb.Document = flowDoc
' This call gets a FlowDocument representing the contents of the RichTextBox.
Dim rtbContents As FlowDocument = rtb.Document
