    Ok so I really like RadGrid, and now I have been using the GridHTMLEditorColumn column type more and more. One issue I am having is that i would like to add the remaining tool bars to the control so that the user has more control of the HTML. I have searched the forums and have seen some discussion, but none of the solutions have worked for me.

    1. How do I add the "hidden" tools since this appears to be radeditor?
    2. How can I maximize the width of the control in the RadGrid edit form?

    Good day to us all.

    You can access the Editor control and add the required tools from code behind. Also you can set the width for each controls from server side. Here is the code example.


        protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)  
            if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)  
                GridEditFormItem editItem = (GridEditFormItem)e.Item;  
                RadEditor editor = (RadEditor) editItem["Editor"].Controls[0];  
                // Add the required tools to editor  
                EditorToolGroup main = new EditorToolGroup();  
                EditorTool copy = new EditorTool();  
                copy.Name = "Copy";  
                copy.ShortCut = "CTRL+C";  
                EditorTool paste = new EditorTool();  
                paste.Name = "Paste";  
                paste.ShortCut = "CTRL+V";  
                // Set the width for controls in edit form  
                editor.Width = Unit.Pixel(800);  
                TextBox textBox = (TextBox)editItem["CompanyName"].Controls[0];  
                textBox.Width = Unit.Pixel(500);
