As I type a link in RadEditor, for example www.telerik.com, it automatically becomes a working hyperlink when using Internet Explorer. Is this behaviour also possible in Google Chrome?

Hi,

The requested feature is offered by the Internet Explorer's rich text editing engine which RadEditor uses. When Internet Explorer finds a string that contains the @ or www symbol(s), then the browser assumes that this is an e-mail / link and converts it to an e-mail / link when the user hits space or right clicks on the string.

The link/email autocomplete feature is a browser implementation and it is supported only by Internet Explorer. RadEditor does not support out-of-the box the requested link creation on enter key press and we do not have a working example for it because it is not easy to be implemented and to be cross browser due to the multiple browser bugs and limitations.

If you would like you can enhance the solution provided in the following forum thread to cover your link creation scenario: On-The-Fly find/replace of editor text.

All the best,
