Hello everyone,

I am using a RadEditor for a small messaging system. However when the user clicks my maintain screen it brings back the data. However the data is not in the same format as they saved it in. Such as spacing, paragraphs, bold, italics, etc. Kind of like these forums, I want to be able to hit edit post or Manage button and comes back with the exact format that the user entered before. Can anyone provide me some assistance. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tommy

I've figured out how to display the text in the same format. However on my maintain screen if they update the text. It's not updating in the database anymore. Is this because the .content? How do I need to resolve this. Its not using post back.

Hi Tommy,

Please, see the following live demos which demonstrates how to save the RadEditor's content in a Database and in External HTML file:
Save In Database,
Save in External File
and
Datagrid Edit Template.

On the other hand, your problem is more likely related to overriding the editor content yourself, in your Page_Load method. Please note that if you read the content of the editor in an event handler (such as a button event handler) this event handler executes later in the page lifecycle compared to Page_Load. This is why, in case you set the initial content in Page_Load it is mandatory to add a check, e.g.

if (!Page.IsPostBack)
{
    radEditor1.Html = "Some content";
}

In case you are having any difficulty, our suggestion is to implement your scenario using a simple <asp:TextBox> instead of RadEditor. Once you get the textbox to work as needed, all you need to do is change the textbox to RadEditor - and all should be fine.

In case you are able to implement your scenario with a simple <asp:TextBox>, yet you are facing trouble with the RadEditor, please send us your working project in a support ticket and we will make the change for you.
