    I am just getting started with the RADEDitor Lite for MOSS

    Is there a way to integrate the Image chooser from the Rad Editor
    with the RichImageField tags (as opposed to the standard RichHtmlField replacement) ?

    <PublishingWebControls:RichImageField id="ImageField" FieldName="PublishingPageImage" runat="server"/>

    I get type conversion issues or the page won't show at all in MOSS when I tried it.

    Hello Mark,

    Our editor field is only compatible with the RichHtmlField publishing web control. It is not possible to use it with other publishing controls (such as the RichImageField).

    I think the RichImageField control is already cross-browser compatible, so I don't see the point of replacing it with our Image Manager. What is the reason you tried to replace it?

    Best wishes,

    Well what we really want is a different Image selection process that is tied into the search. so you can search for "trees" and find all the images of trees stored across various image libraries.

    And THEN, I want to be able to fix the Height and/or Width, and run the URL of the image, through an ImageResizer that we already have, that will resample the image nicer and keep the size down.
    (e.g. they store digital photos in Sharepoint, but want to render to custom web sizes at various points in the content layout)

    So basically 2 things - Image selection and HTML Tag rendering override.

    The Rad Editor, is a leaping off point (maybe)

    Also I really want to use Silverlight for part of that image selection GUI
    It was your Silverlight controls that first attracted me, but then I got sidetracked by the RadEditor, that seemed to get me going in the right direction inside MOSS.

    - So any suggestions ?
    Should I be looking at one of your other controls ?

    Hi Mark,

    Doing a bit of searching on our forums, I found the following thread - http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/thread/b311D-tdbmc.aspx. It is possible to have the Image manager without the RadEditor control, but I am not sure exactly how you can tie this into MOSS. Perhaps you can write a small replacement for the RichImageField control and use the stand-alone image manager in it?

    Kind regards,
