    Is there a property I can be set to allow embedding Youtube videos in the Editor? With all the Youtube videos today clients want an easy way to embed videos into the editor, much like WordPress allows. What is Telerik's solution for this?

    Thanks!

    Hi John,

    You can use the Paste Html dialog to insert Youtube videos in RadEditor. You can see the attached video at http://screencast.com/t/NmEzMmU4, for more information.

    All the best,

    Hi Rumen,

    I tired that yesterday and it didn't work. Is it because I am using the 2008 release #3 RadEditor ?

    Is it possible to upgrade to the latest RadEditor version without buying the entire bundle? I find I only use 2-3 of the ASP.NET components.

    Thanks,

    John

    Hello John,

    The "Paste Html" dialog was introduced in Q1 2010 SP1 (version 2010.1.415) and it is not offered by the very old Q3 2008.

    It is not possible to upgrade from free to the latest version, but you can easily implement your own custom Paste Html dialog. The following live demo demonstrates how to create custom dialogs. You can use the pasteHtml function to paste the entered in the custom dialog content in RadEditor's content area.

    You can find more information how to paste flash content in this forum thread: Problems with ConvertToXhtml Filter and <object> tag.

    Best regards,

    Rumen,

    In my 2008 version it has "Paste As HTML", but that does not embed the actual code.

    I wasn't looking for free upgrade, but I was wondering if you can buy an upgrade for the RadEditor only. I guess the answer is no.

    Thank you,

    John

    Hi John,

    "Paste As HTML" is another dialog, which is offered in the latest version of RadEditor as well. The content pasted by this tool is pasted with its HTML tags in Design mode. The "Paste HTML" dialog has nothing to do with "Paste As HTML".

    My suggestion is to implement yourself the Paste As HTML dialog, because the editor is part of the whole RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite and its code is embedded in the Telerik.Web.UI.dll along with the code of the rest of controls. For that reason you cannot upgrade only the editor in your application and buy an upgrade only for it.

    Rumen,

    I ended up upgrading to the latest version yesterday. It's great! I love the new Image Manager with the ability to resize images.

    Thanks!
