    The Telerik table editor dialogue contains options for many deprecated properties such as background colour, alignment, cellspacing and cellpadding.

    I asked previously on these forums whether it was possible to remove these, and was advised by Telerik staff that I could hide them by editing TableProperties.ascx. I did, and it worked, but that was the free version of RadEditor for MOSS. We now have the full version and TableProperties.ascx is nowhere to be seen. Is it still possible to modify the table editor?

    The folder referred to on that page doesn't exist on my system. The latest version of RAD Editor MOSS available for download is 5.1, but the page you refer to talks about accessing the folder for 5.2.

    I can't find the relevant folder anywhere inside RadEditorMOSS.wsp. I looked inside RadControls_Q1_2008_dev.zip and found the NET2/RadControls/Editor/Dialogs folder, and the NET2/RadControls/Editor/Controls folder. I hooked that up as suggested, and it made a difference - I got an error "Could not load type 'Telerik.WebControls.EditorDialogControls.TableWizard'." - which at least suggested the editor was looking at the new files.

    I found the relevant class in NET2/bin/RadEditor.Net2.dll and put that in the GAC. As a result the dialogues work but, when I modify the files in the Controls or Dialogs folders, the dialogues don't seem to reflect the change. I'm just adding the word "Test" to try to get it to show up.

    Am I on the right track, or do I need to do something completely different? If I'm on the right track, what have I missed that will make the dialogues reflect the change I've made?

    Hi Rick,

    Please review bellow how to achieve the desired behavior:
    • Open the respective version of RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX hotfix.zip and copy the ExternalDialogs folder to the \wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.x.x.x__1f131a624888eeed\Resources directory.  
       
    • Open the corresponding ConfigFile.xml and set the editor's ExternalDialogsPath property to point to the EnternalDialogs directory e.g.
      <property name="ExternalDialogsPath">/HereSetThePath/ExternalDialogs</property> It is important to make sure that the path is correct and may be accessed.
       
    • Open the desired dialog and modify it, so that to best fit your scenario.
       
    • Clear the browser's cache and test the behavior.
    I hope this helps.

    Hi Rick Mason,

    A quick follow up.

    I am not sure why you are not able to download the latest version of RadEditor for MOSS 5.2.0, but if you want you may open a support ticket and we will send it to you.
