    Hi ,


    I would like to know what is the difference between the Telerik.WebControls.RadEditor and the Telerik.Web.UI.RadEditor ?

    if I will need to change the existing code to use the Telerik.Web.UI.RadEditor instead of the Telerik.WebControls.RadEditor
     how and where can i find the corresponding property of the Telerik.WebControls.RadEditor with the Telerik.Web.UI.RadEditor ?

    for example :  Telerik.WebControls.RadEditor.Editable,  DialogParametersMode,  HasPermission etc.

    Any sample or documentation will be greatly appreciated


    Thanks In Advance

    Hello Quyen,

    The Telerik.WebControls.RadEditor is part of our classic RadControls for ASP.NET. The Telerik.Web.UI.Editor is part of our newer RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite, which is built on top of the ASP.NET AJAX framework and takes advantage of it's client-side capabilities. The classic version of the controls are still supported, but new features are only being added to the newer suite. You can take a look at the release documents for each release since the new suite was launched early last year by following this link. You can check out the documentation for the new controls, which will be helpful if you are trying to find a specific property or feature, at this link.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If you have additional, or more specific, questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Regards,
    Kevin Babcock

    Hi Quyen,

    You can find migration instructions from RadEditor Classic to RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX here. Please, note that we recommend using the new editor for ASP.NET AJAX since it loads faster than its predecessor and offers many new features and enhancements.

    Thank You so much for the information provided , it was very helpful to me for the migration to the new version of RadEditor;
    greatly appreciated.

    However I noticed that the new Raditor does not have the "cancel" and "update" button  like the classic one;

    New RadEditor      :  http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/Editor/Examples/Default/DefaultCS.aspx
    Classic RadEditor :  http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet/editor/introduction.html

    On the classic one; when the cancel button is clicked i believed it is doing a goHistory(-1)

    Is there a way to enable these buttons on the new RadEditor?


    Thanks In Advance

    Hello Quyen,

    The RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX does contain "save" and "cancel" buttons that you can add to the toolbar. Check out this help topic for more details. Additionally, there is information on saving the contents of your RadEditor to a file, a database, or a PDF document.

    I hope that helps.

    I have a question regarding the toolbar for the new RadEditor:

    We have the toolbarMode set to floating hence  there is an icon on  the top left hand corner that I need to click in order to view the toolbar which is perfect.

    In the classic one when I clicked on the icon the toolbar, the toolbar menu will be displaying according to the position of the RadEditor
    i.e if the RadEditor control is place close to the top of the page the toolbar will display on top of the RadEditor

    however with the new RadEditor ; when i clicked on the icon toolbar, i only see half of it, the top is cutting off , i can see it is "underneath"
    the top border of the browser and I cannot move it anywhere to able to view the entire toolbox..

    Is there any property that i need to set in order for the toolbar to display correctly?

    Thanks In Advance

    Hello Quyen,

    I would imagine two possible reasons for such a behavior:

    Your page DOCTYPE is not XHTML compliant, but the quirksmode one. Please note that XHTML compliant doctype is the default of VS 2005 and is the one recommended for Web development - even more so when MS AJAX is used. Make sure you are using this (or stricter doctype)
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    However, since DNN and MOSS environments for legacy reasons also use quirksmode, more recent versions of Telerik RadControls have been updated to work (e.g. to size and position) correctly in this mode as well. So, part of the problem could be that in addition to using a quirksmode doctype, you are using an old Telerik.Web.UI dll version as well. Please make sure you use the latest available for download - currently Q3 2008 SP1.

    Hello Tervel,

    Thank You for your prompt response;

    I followed your instructions i.e. verified the doc type of the page and it is
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    I am not sure what is DNN and MOSS, but I upgraded to the latest telerik version Q3  and still encountered the same problem..

    By the way I am using a master page , I am not sure if that makes a difference of the position of the control and I have the problem in both browsers Firefox and IE7

    Please let me know if I am missing something ...

    Thanks

    Hi Quyen,

    In such a case I am really not sure what could be causing the problem. To resolve it I ask you to open a support ticket and send us a runnable project that demonstrates the issue. Once we reproduce it locally we will get back to you with explanations and workaround.


    Sincerely yours,
