    Hi there,

    Having previously used the RadControls ASP.NET AJAX Editor, we had a requirement to store two copies of the entered information - one with HTML formatting and one without for reporting purposes.

    I seem to recall this was quite trivial to implement at the time, as the Editor control provided a property which just had the plain text which we could store separately.

    However, I can't seem to find an obvious way to achieve this with the Kendo Editor - unless I am missing something?

    Hello Paul,

    While there is no built-in way for stripping html tags from the text you can do it using the JavaScrupt. replace() method. Here is an example:

    var text = $('#editor').getKendoEditor().value()
    var strippedText = text.replace(/(<([^>]+)>)/ig,"");

    I hope this helps.
