    I'm working with a client who uses the telerik editor in their community forum.  As a tech company they have a priority language for one of their devices (it closely follows C#).  While the Code Block Editor is great, they have been asking me about adding in some minor changes to the formatting rules to better represent their specific language syntax and color coding.

    Is this possible?

    Hello Steven,

    You can get access to the content inserted via the FormatCodeBlock dialog using the OnClientPasteHtml event of RadEditor, e.g.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientPasteHtml(sender, args) {
            var commandName = args.get_commandName();
            var value = args.get_value();
            if (commandName == "FormatCodeBlock") {
                //modify and set new content
                args.set_value("new content");
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server"

    Once you obtain the content in this event you can modify it.

    You can see how to access the contents of the dialog in this demo: Customize Built-in Dialogs.

    Best regards,
    the Telerik team
