    Hi d-cpt,

    You can use RadEditor instead. RadTextBox does not support HTML.

    Hi Vlad,

    Thank you for your reply. I really like the RadEditor.
    How I set it to wrap a long link or long word? The pasted text has a long url link that is not wrapped and expand out of the editor box.
    I set the RadEditor Width but it growth out of preset size. How to keep its width fixed?

     

    <table width="100%" style="vertical-align:top; table-layout: fixed">

     

     

    <tr>

     

     

    <td style="width: 2%">&nbsp;</td>

     

     

    <td style="width: 48%; vertical-align:top">

     

     

    <asp:PlaceHolder ID="placeholderNewVisit" runat="server" />

     

     

    </td>

     

     

    <td style="width: 48%; vertical-align:top">

     

     

    <b>Advising Notes:</b>

     

     

    <br />

     

     

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="rtbNote" runat="server" AutoResizeHeight="True" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderColor="Gainsboro"

     

     

    BorderWidth="1px" Width="98%" ToolsWidth="98%">

     

     

    </telerik:RadEditor>

     

     

    </td>

     

     

    <td style="width: 2%">&nbsp;</td>

     

     

    </tr>

     



    Thanks,

    Hi,

    You can wrap a long string on the next line when applying word-wrap: break-word; to the body of the RadEditor's content area. You can do that by setting the CssFiles property of RadEditor to point to external css file, which contains a global body class with word-wrap: break-word; in it.

    You can see the following help article for more information: Content area appearance problems.

    If you experience any problems, open a support ticket and send a sample working project along with reproductions steps.

    Hi,

    I tried with your advice but RadEditor still doesn't  wrap a long word.
    The word-wrap is a feature of CSS 3.0 but my VS2008 currently set to CSS 2.1.
    So how I get my VS2008 recognize CSS 3.0?
    Beside of this one, how I can set my RadEditor's width stays fixed.

    Thanks again,

    Hi,

    For your convenience I have attached a sample project in which the editor is configured using the word-wrap css property to wrap a very long string to a new line. I also attached a video demonstrating my test.

    You should set the RadEditor's Width property in pixels to make its width fixed.

    P.S. Our support is concentrated on our products only and I cannot provide a solution for your question concerning Visual Studio 2008 and CSS 3.0 support. You can search in Google for a solution for this problem.

    All the best,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I got the radeditor wraps a long word by add some codes at runtime without using CSS:

    rtbNote.Attributes[

    "Style"] = "word-wrap: break-word";

    The width setting in pixel does not work for me. I think it caused by the toolbar that does not wrap (try to resize it).

    It is common that your product is bought to be used with Visual Studio and CSS. That what your tool is built for, right?
    So providing some extra helps is what I would do rather than say "Our support is concentrated on our products only" which everybody already know. I didn't ask you how to fix my car here. :)
