    How do I set a comma as the tag separator?  It seems my tags are being separated by space, but our tags can contain separator words.  For example "Santa Monica,Public Library" is displayed as 4 tags instead of just 2.

    Is there something I'm missing here?  Seems like this should be the default behavior.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Stephen,

    If I understand you correctly, you want to use only the comma as a separator for the tag cloud items. I am afraid that disabling the space as separator for the specified text is not supported by the RadTagCloud.

    If you want to insert words with spaces in the tag cloud, you can manipulate its items collection either on the server-side or on the client-side instead of retrieving the words from a provided text.

    The following sample shows how to add your items from the code-behind:
    RadTagCloud1.Items.Add(new Telerik.Web.UI.RadTagCloudItem("Santa Monica"));
    RadTagCloud1.Items.Add(new Telerik.Web.UI.RadTagCloudItem("Public Library"));

    This online demo shows how to add items in the tag cloud via the client-side API of the control.
