I'm not sure if I understand you correctly - but we'll figure out what's going on.
First of all - you have a RadEditor bound to a nvarcher(XXX) column in a database.
Something like this:
Snippet created with CBEnhancer
<%# Bind("TheContent") %>' Skin="Office2007" ID="edContent" runat="server"
In the data you have now code like
<span style="text-decoration: underline">this is a test.</span><br
This seems OK so far (the text should be underlined I guess).
So the editor does what it should - it gives you the correct data.
To display this data you now have to pull out your SQL data an place it somewhere on your page.
Now the question - how do you do this?
The correct code would be something like:
<%# Eval("TheContent") %>
Anyhow - what you get (I guess) is not formatted text - instead you get HTML source.
If so - you are possibly binding your data to a "text" property of some control.
Instead you should bind it to "InnerHTML".
RadGridView has no problem with such data. A GridBoundColumn does the job.
If you use a repeater or something like this - use the code I showed above (Eval....)
If you do it in code behind - look for a control which offers "InnerHTML" and not only Text.
An example for code behind - use a div like this:
And in code do:
I also made a sample about using RadEditor to store / retrieve data from a database - maybe this can help also:
