    I followed the sample emoticon demo at

    The problem is, after selecting an emoticon via the dropdown, it is very hard to select another emoticon from the same dropdown because you have to click on the tiny dropdown arrow and it is very easy to click on the icon and get another of the same emoticon you previously selected.

    Is there any way to make the EditorSplitButton always dropdown its items, even if you click on the icon?

    Hello Don,

    You can disable the built-in update header functionality of a custom tool or another split-button using the javascript code below. Therefore every time when you click on the button it will expand its dropdown:

     <script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientLoad(editor) {
       //Disable header update functionality 
    var tool = editor.getToolByName("<Put Your Tool Name Here>"); tool.set_updateHeader(false);
     <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad" runat="server" ...

    Best regards,
