Is there are way to allow the user to "copy" their screen (using PrtScrn button), and then "paste" the image into the dialog box? There would probably need to be a Java or ActiveX control to grab the image buffer from the client machine.

Thanks,
Jay

Hi Jay O'Brien,

The images pasted / inserted in RadEditor should be accessible via the HTTP protocol and they must be uploaded on the server.
Unfortunately the automatic image upload to the server is not possible with javascript code, because Javascript cannot access the local file system from outside - it would be a major security violation.
The automatic image upload cannot be implemented without using ActiveX or some other software, installed on the client, but we do not use either technique because of browser compatibility and that the ActiveX components are forbidden by the corporate networks.

What we suggest is to paste the screenshot in MS Paint or another similar program, save it to your hard disk and manually upload the saved image via the Upload functionality of the RadEditor's Image Manager dialog. After that you will be able to insert the image into the content area of RadEditor.


 
All the best,
