    I've run into a display problem using RadEditor in IE when ToolbarMode="ShowOnFocus". Everything's OK in Firefox, but in IE 7 or 8, when you click in the editor content area, the entire content area gets pushed downwards a few pixels when the toolbars display. Although it doesn't sound a big problem, it's having a ripple effect on the rest of my page's content.

    I assumed it was likely to be a CSS interefence problem from my application's CSS but the problem persists even in the basic test page below:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="editor.aspx.cs" Inherits="Editor" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <html xmlns="">
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server"/>
        <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" ToolbarMode="ShowOnFocus" />

    I'm running ASP.NET Controls v2010.2.713.40 and using the Net 4.0 library. Any ideas how I can overcome this?

    Hi Ian,

    Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. I have logged it in our ToDo list and we will try to fix it for one of our upcoming releases. For the time being, as a workaround you can use the following CSS:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
    <style type="text/css">
        #<%=RadEditor1.ClientID%>Top div

    Please note that using this CSS you will need to set the RadEditor's ToolsWidth property, e.g.:
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" ToolbarMode="ShowOnFocus" ToolsWidth="690px" />

    As a small token of gratitude I have updated your Telerik points.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
