Hello All,

I am aware the lazy initialization (when not in default mode) is by design. Can I force initialization/display when the page is loaded when ToolbarMode="Floating"?

I would like the toolbar to be displayed on page load rather than having to click the toggle button.

Hi Jeremy,

You can open the Floating toolbar when the editor loads using the following code and reposition it:
<script type="text/javascript">
    // Rad Editor Extensions Initialization
    function OnNewEditorClientLoad(editor, args) {
    function ToggleFloatingToolbar(editor) {
        var button = getElementsByClassName("ToggleFloatingToolbar")[0];
        setTimeout(function() {
            var oWnd = editor.get_toolAdapter().get_window();
            oWnd.moveTo(0, 100);
        }, 10);
    function getElementsByClassName(classname, node) {
        if (!node) node = document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0];
        var a = [];
        var re = new RegExp('\\b' + classname + '\\b');
        var els = node.getElementsByTagName("*");
        for (var i = 0, j = els.length; i < j; i++)
            if (re.test(els[i].className)) a.push(els[i]);
        return a;
    //simulate InternetExplorer's click() method
    if (!document.all) { = function() {
            var evt = this.ownerDocument.createEvent('MouseEvents');
            evt.initMouseEvent('click', true, true, this.ownerDocument.defaultView, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, false, false, false, false, 0, null);
<telerik:RadEditor runat="server" id="RadEditor1" toolbarmode="Floating" onclientload="OnNewEditorClientLoad"></telerik:RadEditor>
