I would like to add an InsertFormElement button programmatically.

I have used the following code from http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/addingstandardbuttons.html

Imports Telerik.Web.UI
...
Dim tool As New EditorTool("InsertFormElement")
tool.Type = EditorToolType.Button
RadEditor1.Tools(0).Tools.Add(tool)

tool does not appear to have a Type.  I tried omitting the line:

tool.Type = EditorToolType.Button

and the code still appears to work.  Why is this?

Secondly, RadEditor1.Tools(x).Tools.Add(tool) places the button at the end of tool group x.

Is it possible to position the button in a specific place within the group?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Roger

Hi Roger,

Have you set the "Imports Telerik.Web.UI" line in the codebehind file?

For your convenience I have attached a sample working project in which the editor has enabled InsertFormElement from the codebehind and it is positioned at a specific place in the toolbar.

Many thanks, Rumen, just the ticket.

On a related point, I also would like to programmatically remove a standard button.  Two things:

1)  How do I test if the button is present (I know where it in the toolbar)?
2) If it is present, how do I remove it?

Many thanks.

Hi Roger,

You can use the FindTool method to search for your button.
You can use the solution provided in this help article to remove the button: Removing Toolbar Buttons.
