    Hi,

    I have the same SharePoint Designer problem as in http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/sharepoint-2007/full-featured-editor/custom-list-form-radeditor.aspx - ie: Also, when viewing the List Form within SharePoint Designer, the field control does not render and gives the error:
    "Failed to render "Description" column because of an error in the "Multiple lines of text" field type control. See details in log. Exception message: the RadControls folder was not found."


    I was about to lodge a support ticket, but my subscription has expired. In the process of obtaining budgetary approval but in the meantime, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? Please advise if I need to move this query to the 'RadEditor Lite' section.

    I am running version 4.5.6.0.

    My Enhanced Tool Bar section in ListToolsFile.xml looks like:

    <tools name="EnhancedToolbar" dockable="false" enabled="true">
        <tool name="Cut" shortcut="CTRL+X" />
        <tool name="Copy" shortcut="CTRL+C" />
        <tool name="Paste" shortcut="CTRL+V" />
        <tool name="FormatStripper" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="Undo" shortcut="CTRL+Z"/>
        <tool name="Redo" shortcut="CTRL+Y"/>
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="MOSSInsertTable" />
        <tool name="MOSSInsertTableElement" dropDownWidth="180">
          <tool name="InsertRowAbove" />
          <tool name="InsertRowBelow" />
          <tool name="InsertColumnLeft" />
          <tool name="InsertColumnRight" />
        </tool>
        <tool name="MOSSDeleteTableElement">
          <tool name="DeleteRow" />
          <tool name="DeleteColumn" />
        </tool>
        <tool name="SplitCell" />
        <tool name="MergeColumns" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="MOSSLinkManager" />
        <tool name="ImageManager" />
      </tools>

    Many thanks.

    Hello Mark,

    Review the following forum article: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet/editor/radcontrols-folder-not-found-error-in-radeditor-v7-1-2.aspx

    What you need to know is that in MOSS the editor's files are located in the Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\4.x.x.x__1f131a624888eeed\RadControls\Editor folder. Make sure that this folder has full ASPNET / NETWORK SERVICE permissions. Also make sure that when you activate the "Use RadEditor to edit List Items" feature for the first time you are logged as administrator and you perform an iisreset command afterwards.

    Hi,

    Not sure if this is related...

    I have activated the editor for lists and made a couple of changes to the ListToolsfile.xml. However, I don't see the changes reflected on my site. Is an IISreset required in this case also?

    Thanks,
    Alon

    Hi Alon,

    Could you provide me with your ListToolsFile.xml. I will use it in order to try reproducing the issue on our test server.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    OK, basically I need to restrict formatting for a segment of our users, so I have stripped out tools.  I did an IISreset and still no change. Is there anything i need to do?

    The file is:

    <root>
      <tools name="EnhancedToolbar">
        <tool name="Cut" shortcut="CTRL+X" />
        <tool name="Copy" shortcut="CTRL+C" />
        <tool name="Paste" shortcut="CTRL+V" />
        <tool name="FormatStripper" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="Undo" shortcut="CTRL+Z"/>
        <tool name="Redo" shortcut="CTRL+Y"/>
        <tool separator="true" />
      </tools>
      <tools name="BasicToolbar">
        <tool name="RealFontSize" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="Bold" shortcut="CTRL+B" />
        <tool name="Italic" shortcut="CTRL+I" />
        <tool name="Underline" shortcut="CTRL+U" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="JustifyLeft" shortcut="CTRL+L" />
        <tool name="JustifyCenter" shortcut="CTRL+E" />
        <tool name="JustifyRight" shortcut="CTRL+R" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="InsertOrderedList" />
        <tool name="InsertUnorderedList" />
        <tool name="Indent" />
        <tool name="Outdent" shortcut="CTRL+M" />
        <tool separator="true" />
        <tool name="MOSSLeftToRight" />
        <tool name="MOSSRightToLeft" />
      </tools>
     <realFontSizes>
       <item value="10pt"></item>
       <item value="12pt"></item>
     </realFontSizes>
      <contextMenus>
        <contextMenu forElement="*">
          <tool name="Cut"/>
          <tool name="Copy"/>
          <tool name="Paste"/>
        </contextMenu>
      </contextMenus>
    </root>


    Thanks,
    Alon

    Hello Alon,

    I tested the provided ListToolsFile.xml and it looks OK. For your convenience I attached a screen shot where you can see the edition replacing rich text and enhanced rich text fields.


    All the best,

    Hi Alon,

    What you can do is upgrade to the latest version of RadEditor for MOSS. From your account information I can tell that you can download RadEditor for MOSS 5.8.0. In order to download it you should go to the Downloads section under your account, click on the Visual Studio Extensions, DLLs, Scripts, Source Code, DNN and MOSS wrappers ... link and download the RadEditor for MOSS: (zip, 14 MB) installation.

    You can find the upgrade instructions in the following online help articles:
    Upgrade Instructions from version 4.x to version 5.x - When you upgrade form the classic control to the ASP.NET AJAX one.
    Upgrading to a newer version of RadEditor for MOSS - If you upgrade from 5.x to 5.y version of the control.
