    I am working on a Web Application using .NET 3.5 with Telerik Rad Ajax Controls. We want to implement a Key Word dictionary for Medical terms. These Key Words will be a suggestion for use when the User starts typing in the Rad Editor, after 3 characters.
         I have already read the documentation for the Rad Editor on how to attach keypress event handler and build the string. Also, I read the documentation on how to paste HTML into the Editor where the cursor is located.

       What my question is: Are there any suggestions for displaying a list of items in the document area of the Rad Editor? Or display a list of Key Words from one of the Tool Bars?

        Also. Does Telerik static client object include a generic way to call a web service? I need to send the 3 character back the server to get a list of Key Words that begin with the 3 character string.

       Don't worry, I'm going to suggest we allow the user to turn this functionality off if they want :). I would go nuts.

        I have posted on here before so I am thankful of the help I have received and any help you can give now. So thanks in advance.

    Hi Isaac,

    You can see how to replace text on the fly in this forum thread: On-The-Fly find/replace of editor text.
    The Telerik static client object does not include a generic way to call a web service, but you can use the XmlHttpPanel control to get the suggestions list from the server on the client. More information about this control is available in the documentation at: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/radxmlhttppanel-overview.html

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Hi. Thank you very much for your reply. The links posted were very helpful.

      I did find out how to call a web service from a asp.net web application client side.

    Thanks  again.
