We are very excited  to announce that our Q1 release will feature a CTP edition of Telerik RadEditor for Silverlight. This initial version will support the most basic set of features but you can rest assured that there is a lot more cooking. RadEditor integrates three of our new controls for Silverlight – RadToolbar, RadToobarTray and RadColorPicker. The first two will give you fine-grained control over the positioning of the elements you choose to insert in your editor. The customizable RadColorPicker is used for choosing font and highlight colors and offers a well-known tool to end-users. Below you can find a non-exhaustive list of the initially supported text-formatting features:

  • Undo
  • Redo
  • Insert Hyperlink
  • Insert Image
  • Insert Horizontal Rule
  • Indent
  • Outdent
  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Underline
  • Justify Left
  • Justify Center
  • Justify Right
  • Justify Full
  • Ordered List
  • Unordered List
  • Superscript
  • Subscript
  • Strikethrough
  • Font Size
  • Font Family
  • Font Color
  • Highlight Color

API-wise you will be able to manipulate the text in the editor via the exposed methods used internally by the toolbar elements. Getting and setting the selected text, events for changes in the text, etc. will all be available for you to use, of course, enabling you to make the best out of the control. In case we missed something you consider important, please let us know and we’ll do our best to include it in the future versions of RadEditor. We highly value your feedback, so please let us know what you think about RadEditor and the scenarios in which you might want to use it.
