    Hi,
    I am using the latest version of Telerik RAD Editor. It's working fine but I need to customize the following things:

    First I want to change the appearance by modifying the width and toolbar sets. I tried to do this by altering TelerikRadEditorHtml.ascx and TelerikRadEditorText.ascx.

    Apparently, Telerik provides two different controls for working with HTML field and List field. For the RadHtmlField inside TelerikRadEditorHtml.ascx, I added the property ToolsFile and Width, and it behaved exactly like I wanted.

    I tried to add the same properties to RadTextField inside TelerikRadEditorText.ascx, but it ignored the properties. I observed there is a FontSizeCoef property, but I wanted to set exactly the width and height. Also the ToolsFile property I couldn't make it work.

    Is there anyway to work around this?

    Hi Wendy,

    From  my understanding this is all controlled by an XML file in my instance it is located in 
    web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\4.5.0.0__1f131a624888eeed\RadControls\Editor

    ConfigFile.xml

    Regards

    Hi Wendy,

    I answered your other support ticket. For convenience I pasted my answer bellow:

    You can set all the properties you want in the ConfigFile.xml or ListConfigFile.xml, this depends on your exact scenario. For more information please review the following help article: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/set-properties-via-config-file.html
    e.g.
    <property name="Width">"500px"</property>
    <property name="Height">"400px"</property>

    As to the tools modification, you can Add/Remove tools from the toolbar using the ToolsFile.xml (ListToolsFile.xml) - http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/removing-tools-from-toolbar.html

    I hope this helps.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply.
    Actually I've done the same thing before. But since I modified a default config file, can you confirm whether future updates from Telerik will overwrite the config file?

    Hi Wendy,

    You will need to back up your custom settings(ToolsFiles, ConfigFiles) before upgrading or uninstalling the control, because all the customizations will be lost. After you have installed the new version of the control, just replace the new files with your old ones and all the customizations will be applied.

    I hope this helps.

    George
