    All -

    I'm trying to get the plain text as well as the HTML formatted text from my RichTextEditor, but the GetPlainText method is always returning back empty string. The GetContent method works just fine.

    Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong? 

    Thank You

    string sPlainText = rtbSMTPMessage.GetPlainText();
    string sHTMLText = rtbSMTPMessage.GetContent("html");

    Hi Joy,

    Thank you for writing.

    The GetPlainText method is inherited from RadControl and it should not be used with RadRichtextEditor. To get the text you can use the GetContent method and specify the format like this:
    string text = radRichTextEditor1.GetContent("txt");

    Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with.
