Hi,

I am a new user to RadControls so pardon my ignorance.

What we essentially want is that:
  1. A user is shown the contents in the editor
  2. He should not be allowed to change it.
  3. He should be allowed to print the contents of the editor.

If I switch to preview mode, the buttons gets disabled. I there a way I can achieve the above?

Regards,
Vaibhav

Hi Dobromir,

Thanks for the help. The solution works fine.
Though I am a little confused with a small thing. Why do we need to call the setTimeout method in the javascript code?

        function OnClientModeChange(editor, args) { 
            var mode = editor.get_mode(); 
            switch (mode) { 
                case 1: 
                    //alert( "We are in Design mode"); 
                    //do something 
                    break
                case 2: 
                    //alert("We are in HTML mode"); 
                    break
                case 4: 
                    setTimeout(function() { 
                        var tool = editor.getToolByName("Print"); 
                        tool.setState(0); 
                    }, 0); 
                    //alert( "We are in Preview mode"); 
                    //do something 
                    break
            } 
        }

Hi Vaibhav,

The setTimeout in this handler is used to ensure that the custom code will be executed after the default RadEditor's scripts that disable the tools.
