    Hello,

    I installed RadEditor for MOSS and RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX two days back. My main intention is to use RadEditor for my MOSS sites mainly for giving additional editor to my users for editing and publishing content. I have downloaded the trial version, and installation took place just fine. I have activated both the features viz. Using RadEditor to edit HTML Fields and Using RadEditor to edit ListItems. But I can't seem to use it no matter what I try. Here are few of my listed problems:

    1.  When I add the telerik MOSS RadEditor webpart on a page, I do not see any editor controls for that webpart in IE (am using IE 7), but in firefox I do see them, three tabs in lower left corner called Design, HTML, Preview, but none of them works, I click on them, but nothing happens only in the status bar I keep seeing Javascript:Void(0); Isn't RadEditor compatible to IE??

    2. In the list items, if I add/edit any item, I am able to see the entire RadEditor, but the body text area and all the editor controls are again disabled, so can't really do anything with them. This is atleast that I can see both in IE and Firefox.

    Am I missing any settings here? I have installed the msi for the RadControls, and then added and deployed the solution file for MOSS RadEditor. Also added the dll and Rad Publishing control in one of the layout pages for the content management scenario. Please can somebody help me out of it, I really want to use it but can't seem to find how.

    Hi Priyanka Lachhwani,

    Please make sure that you correctly extended your MOSS site with Miscrosoft ASP.NET AJAX. You can find instructions in the following articles.
    1. Extending your MOSS site with Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 - for .NET 2.0
    2. Extending your MOSS site with Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX 3.5 - for .NET 3.5


    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for such quick reply.

    I have AJAX 3.5 installed on my machine, but am still facing the same problem. I previously had Ajax 1.0, but now since I had framework 3.5 SP1 already installed on my server, I made the changes in the web.config to now refer to 3.5 extensions. Once again retracted and deleted the solution package for MOSS RadEditor, and reinstalled it. IISReset also doesn't help.

    One more thing that I would want to mention here is, when I add a new list item to a list, for example say to Announcements list, the text area for the body appears disabled. I saw in the firefox, it is rendering as below:

    <td valign="top" style="height: 100%;" class="reContentCell" id="ctl00_m_g_f227c1b6_1636_42a5_8bd0_01652f0f5e45_ctl00_ctl04_ctl01_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_RadTextField1Center">
    <textarea style="display: none;" cols="20" rows="4" name="ctl00$m$g_f227c1b6_1636_42a5_8bd0_01652f0f5e45$ctl00$ctl04$ctl01$ctl00$ctl00$ctl04$ctl00$ctl00$RadTextField1" id="ctl00_m_g_f227c1b6_1636_42a5_8bd0_01652f0f5e45_ctl00_ctl04_ctl01_ctl00_ctl00_ctl04_ctl00_ctl00_RadTextField1ContentHiddenTextarea"/>
    </td>

    If you see display: none style is applied to it, can't understand whats happening here. Please can you help.

    Bingo, got a solution for that one. All the moss sites on my server need to have their web.config modified (isn't there a better way?). I had modified the one at 80 port, but not the one I was looking at although the solution is deployed for the entire server. At least got a resolution.

    But now there is another problem. In one of the layouts I have put the register tag for the RadEditorSharepoint assembly and entered the RadHTMLfield control instead of publishing control to render my page content into using Sharepoint designer:

    <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.FieldEditor" Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=5.5.0.0, culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" %>

    <telerik:RadHtmlField ID="Content" FieldName="PublishingPageContent" runat="server"></telerik:RadHtmlField>

    It gives the error in design time itself: Error creating control - Content value cannot be null. Am I doing something incorrectly?

    I just want my users be able to modify the page content using RadEditor, is this the correct way of implementing it?

    Many thanks
    Priyanka
