    We're using the RadEditor in the administration area of our custom CMS, and we'ld like to be able to specify multiple files for the ContentAreaCssFile property:
    1. the main website skin CSS file of the target website, so the (text) styling in the editor looks familiar to the person editing the content
    2. a temporary CSS file just for the editor itself, eg. to specify a temporary visible (dashed) border for a DIV element which is inserted using a custom dialog

    How do we accomplish this?

    Best regards, Marja

    Hi Marja,

    Please have a look into the sample code snippet for multiple ContentArea Class for one RadEditor.

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server">

    <style type="text/css">
            color: White !important;
            background-color: Red !important;
            color: Black !important;
            background-color: Yellow !important;

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function ChangeClass() {
            var editor = $find("<%=RadEditor1.ClientID %>");
            if ( //your code for condtion)
                editor.get_contentArea().className = "ContentArea1";
                editor.get_contentArea().className = "ContentArea2";

    Hello Marja,

    You can use also the ContentAreaCssFile property in a custom Server-side logic, which implements the logic to set the desired CSS file of the content area.

    You can examine this live example for more information on this matter.
