Hi,
I have a problem with adding a toolbar in code in combination with the LoadToolsFile method of the RadEditor. When I use only one of them everything works fine. But when I use them both I only see the toolbar added from code. It doesn't change when I call the SetToolbar method after the creation of the dynamic toolbar.

I have the following code:

SetToolbar();

//add a new Toolbar dynamically

EditorToolGroup dynamicToolbar = new EditorToolGroup();

radTextEditor.Tools.Add(dynamicToolbar);

//add a custom dropdown and set its items and dimension attributes

EditorDropDown ddn = new EditorDropDown("DynamicDropdown");

ddn.Text =

"Dynamic dropdown";

//Set the popup width and height

ddn.Attributes[

"width"] = "110px";

ddn.Attributes[

"popupwidth"] = "240px";

ddn.Attributes[

"popupheight"] = "100px";

//Add items

ddn.Items.Add(

"Project Name", "{Project.Name}");

ddn.Items.Add(

"Person Firstname", "{Person.FirstName}");

ddn.Items.Add(

"Person Zipcode", "{Person.ZipCode}");

//Add tool to toolbar

dynamicToolbar.Tools.Add(ddn);

The method SetToolbar does the following:

private

void SetToolbar()

{

DAData dab = new DAData(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["configuration"].ConnectionString);

dab.CommandName =

"usp_RadEditorTools_Load";

dab.AddSqlParameter(

"projectId", long.Parse(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["CNGRSProject"]));

dab.AddSqlParameter(

"resourceId", this.ResourceId);

string ret = (string)dab.GetReturnValue();

XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();

xmlDoc.LoadXml(ret);

radTextEditor.LoadToolsFile(xmlDoc);

radTextEditor.EnsureToolsFileLoaded();

}

I guess I'm forgetting something... but I just cannot see what that is.
Can anybody help me on this one?

Bye,

Aldert

Hi Aldert,

This is how the editor currently work and we do not plan to change this behavior for the time being.

You cannot combine both ways of creating new tools. You should choose either to load the tools only via the XML file or to create them with the server side api and collections of RadEditor.

Hi Rumen,

That's a clear, yet little diappointing, answer!

However it shouldn't be too hard to do this with the server API.

Thanks again.

Bye,

Aldert
