    I want to get the current edit mode(Html,Design) of a rad Editor control as an alert ,on button click control.And i want to set rad-editor control same mode even after the post back on button click.

    i.e if the mode of a rad-editor control is (HTML),i want the rad-editor to be in same mode (HTML)even after  post-back (buttonclick)

    Hi sandeep,

    Please try the below sample code snippet to get the EditMode of a RadEditor from JavaScript. In order to achieve your second scenario try to set the currently selected EditMode in a hidden field and on postback call a client side method to set the mode as follows.

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="reditorDemo" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadButton ID="rbtnEditorMode" runat="server" Text="Get Editor Mode" OnClientClicked="getEditorMode">
    <asp:HiddenField ID="hiddenEdiorMode" runat="server" />

    function getEditorMode(sender, args) {
        var radEditor = $find("<%=reditorDemo.ClientID%>");
        modeType = radEditor.get_mode(); //editmode type
        document.getElementById("hiddenEdiorMode").value = modeType; // assigning edit mode value to hidden field
        switch (modeType) {
            case 1: alert("Design"); break;
            case 2: alert("Html"); break;
            case 4: alert("Preview"); break;
    function changeMode(mode) {
        //setting edit mode value after postback
        var editor = $find("<%=reditorDemo.ClientID %>");

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (IsPostBack)
            //on postback will call client side method and passing the currently selected edit mode
            string script = "function f(){changeMode('" + hiddenEdiorMode.Value + "'); Sys.Application.remove_load(f);}Sys.Application.add_load(f);";
            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Page, Page.GetType(), "key", script, true);
