    In the classic RadEditor you could use the EnableTab property to set how the tab key would work inside the Editor but it seems to be missing in the Ajax version. Is there another way to get the tab key to set focus to the next field instead of adding whitespace?

    Hello Wiktoria,

    For the time being we do not plan to implement the EnableTab property in RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX.
    How ever I will provide you with instructions of how to achieve the desired functionality.
    1. Add the following code to the respective ConfigFile.xml or ListConfigFile.xml, which are located in the Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\\Resources folder.
    <property name="OnClientLoad">OnClientLoad</property> 

    2. Add the following javascript code the the MOSSEditorTools.js, which is located in the mentioned above folder.
    function OnClientLoad(editor, args) 
       var buttonsHolder = $get(editor.get_id() + "Top");  //get a reference to the top toolbar zone of the editor    
       var buttons = buttonsHolder.getElementsByTagName("A");  //get a reference to all A elements on the toolbar and disable the tabbing trough them 
       for (var i=0; i< buttons.length; i++) 
          var a = buttons[i]; 
          a.tabIndex = -1; 
          a.tabStop = false
    Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList.InsertTab = function(commandName, editor, oTool) 
            $get(editor.get_id() + "_ModesWrapper").focus(); //here you can set the focus to other document 
        }, 0);   

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
