Hi - quick question,

I want to pre-populate the editor with  inputs of different types (<input> tag such as textboxes, checkboxes, etc.) then have the user fill out these inputs and then when the user saves, i will go and grab the form input values and post them to the server.

this seems fairly straightforward, and the Editor renders all of the inputs on the form perfectly, but when i use jquery to peer into the $("#editor").data("kendoEditor").value(); object, none of the inputs values have been populated with the data entered. now, if i type into the editor window in another location (not in the input), then i can see those changes in the value option just fine. does the Editor accommodate this? or am i just missing something?

Thanks,

Hello Chad,

The values of the input / textarea HTML inputs are dynamic, and are never appended in the HTML. This scenario is not supported by the Kendo UI editor. Why not skip the editor and have a simple <form> instead? From the scenario you describe, I do not see any value added by the editor.
