    Hi there,

    I have the following scenario:

    8 Editors on a page which all use the same Toolbar, so I implemented ToolProviderID so that all Editors use the Toolbar off the first Editor.

    The toolbar is shown properly exept for the <symbols> section which shows the default list and not my custom defined list in the toolbar XML.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Marc,

    The observed behavior is not a bug, but it is how the ToolProviderID functionality currently works.
    The current implementation of the ToolProviderID property does not copy and apply the collections such as symbols, styles, paragraph styles, snippets, etc of the parent editor to the child editors. This means that the custom set of symbols of the parent editor will be not inherited by the child editors. The enhancement of this property is logged in our ToDo list but currently I cannot provide an estimate when it will be done. If more people request this feature, we will raise its priority.

    I too have a question about this functionality.  I have several (4 or more) editors on 10 different pages, and in order to improve performance, I implemented the ToolProviderID functionality.  However, on all of the child editors, I've lost the ability to disable the "add to dictionary" item on the spell checker.  Is this expected behavior?  If so, then I vote that it be moved up on your to do list as something that needs to be corrected/implemented. 

    This is the "parent" editor:

    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="reExamplesTalent" StripFormattingOptions="MSWordRemoveAll" Skin="Vista" Height="200" EditModes="Design,Preview" Width="750" AutoResizeHeight="true" SpellCheckSettings-AllowAddCustom="false"></telerik:RadEditor> 

    And here is the "child editor":

    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="reGoalsAspirations" ToolProviderID="reExamplesTalent" StripFormattingOptions="MSWordRemoveAll" Skin="Vista" Height="200" EditModes="Design,Preview" Width="750" AutoResizeHeight="true" SpellCheckSettings-AllowAddCustom="false"></telerik:RadEditor> 

    Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Kyle Parker

    Hi Kyle,

    The ToolProviderID feature does not apply to RadSpell configuration in RadEditor and it is not possible to configure the spellcheckers in the child editors.

    What you can do is to create your own theme skin file with default RadEditor configuration and therefore you will be able to configure multiple editors from a single location.

    Thank you for the update.  Since this bit of functionality is not allowed via the ToolProviderID, I would like to add my request to the list in order to move this up on your development priority.

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Hello,

    The feature will be added in the next official RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX release (Q1 2010, scheduled for next month). Please accept our apologies for the delay.
