    Probably not possible but....

    It would be neat if one could embed user controls into the editor. This would then allow us as developers to create editable layouts that contain user controls.

    Hi John,

    RadEditor is a client-side browser tool, providing the ability to visually edit pure HTML text using the underlying Rich Text Editing engine of the browser. This browser engine supports only standard HTML/XHTML tags and plain text.

    Please, note that if you put a server or xml tag in RadEditor the editor will not strip the tag, but will not render it in Design mode. The ASP.NET tags are not HTML tags and the browser is not able to visualize them.

    RadEditor is more similar to a desktop HTML editor rather than to an integrated program like MS Word or Visual Studio for web.

    OK yes I understand that but what I am saying is why couldnt for example the editor be able to check the Html content of a RadEditor and look for server tags, redndering them if it found them
    <cc1:ExampleControl id="c_Example" runat="server" />

    Hi John,

    There are many aspects to why this is almost impossible to implement.
    On the server, a control is a logical unit, on the client - it is a collection of HTML elements and javascript, subject to browser rules and limitations. These two entities are completely different. Yes, you can render a control (e.g the editor can trick it to render its HTML), but then you will probably expect that to change properties of that control or for the control to be both editable as well as to behave as if it is in a non-editable environment.
    Once issues of this kind start being taken into consideration, it becomes clear why there is no such commercial implementation available on the web. Many frameworks and CMS systems exist that aim at addressing such a task, and they do so in a manner than a WYSIWYG web-based editor can do things.

    Best regards,
