    Hi,

    We use the editor for email marketing campaigns and sometime clients will have an email designed and the designer will set internal CSS styles within the HTML document. Is it possible for the editor to automatically pick up the internal CSS styles and set them in the CSS Class drop down box? I know it's possible to point this to an external CSS file but there is no mention of internal CSS styles.

    Many thanks

    Tim

    Hello Tim,

    Could you please clarify how the CSS files or rules are inserted into the content area document?

    Generally, a simple post back will reinitialize the RadEditor and populate the Apply Css Class dropdown with the additional classes. However, I am unable to firmly suggest you a possible approach as I am unable to exactly understand what is the situation and what is the goal.

    Please provide exact details how the RadEditor is used and what is the expected behavior related to the CSS inserted.

    Regards,

    Ianko,

    Below is the HTML content that is in the editor and which has a number of CSS styles defined internally. Attached is a screen shot showing that the drop down list of the styles hasn't picked up these styles that I've defined in the HTML file. I'd like it to pick them up like it has done here:
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/formatblock/defaultcs.aspx

    Can the editor automatically pick these up from the internal CSS styles in the HTML or do they have to be defined in the paragraphs section of the tools.xml file?

    Thanks

    Hi Tim,

    The dropdown shown in the snapshot is the Pragraph Styles tool and it is not related to the CSS added to the content area. 

    The visual appearance of the elements in the dropdown is defined by the added EditorParagraph items as explained in the article provided. It can be used for text formatting. For example, the user can select a part of the text and select a predefined paragraph style. This way the selected text will be wrapped in the defined HTML element (e.g., <h4>, <p>, <div> etc.).

    This tool cannot be populated according to the CSS, because it is not designed to be related to it.

    Ianko,

    Thank you for your reply. That has clarified the paragraph styles.

    Final question though, can the 'Apply CSS Class' drop down list be automatically populated with the internal CSS styles that are defined in the HTML document?

    Thanks

    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    Yes, the CSS class tool can be populated with the inserted styles, although, note that only class names will appear and only after a post back.

    This tool is mainly via browser functionality to retrieve a list of the used class names. As a result, to repopulate the list you should insert  a CSS rule with a class name used in the selector; the post back will re-render the iframe and repopulate the dropdown. You can examine this screencast to examine the described behavior.
