    I just upgraded the editor on our site from 4.x to 5.8.x. because the original one just began blanking out today all of a sudden.  I got the binding redirects into the web.config so the site's not erroring out now; however, when I go to the list form where I'm supposed to be using it, the editor is still blank.  This can be explained by the javascript errors I'm getting, which I'll list below:

    Sys is undefined (
    On the form page at this line: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager._initialize('ctl00$SPWebPartManager1$g_2a0d2d04_10f6_44c4_a6a8_cd5734c12b7f$ff2_1$ctl00$ctl00$TelerikScriptManager', document.getElementById('aspnetForm'));

     

    )

    Type is undefined (MOSSEditorTools.js Line 25, Character 1)

    Sys is undefined (
    On the form page at this line:
    WebForm_AutoFocus('ctl00_SPWebPartManager1_g_2a0d2d04_10f6_44c4_a6a8_cd5734c12b7f_ff1_1_ctl00_ctl00_TextField');Sys.Application.initialize();
    )

    I think I've seen somewhat similar threads to this, but I couldn't quite make the connection.  Any relevant advice would be MUCH appreciated.

    Hi David,

    The "Sys is undefined error" means that the site is not Ajaxified, but RadEditor for MOSS 5.x is an ASP.NET AJAX control.

    You can see how to modify the web.config file of your web application in the following help articles:

    My suggestion is to also see the following help article: Upgrade Instructions from version 4.x to version 5.x.

    That was it.  Once I added the settings to the web.config for ajax 3.5 it started working.  I'm just not sure I understand why the original version was working in the first place.  In any case, thanks a lot Rumen!

    Hello,

    RadEditor for MOSS 4.x is based on the classic RadEditor for ASP.NET, which is not ASP.NET AJAX based. This is the difference.

    All the best,
