    This is my code for rad Editor ,

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1Content" runat="server" AutoResizeHeight="True"
    Width="500px" ToolbarMode="Floating">
    <ImageManager EnableAsyncUpload="True" ViewPaths="~/images" UploadPaths="~/images" MaxUploadFileSize="900000000"/>
    <MediaManager EnableAsyncUpload="true" ViewPaths="~/media" UploadPaths="~/media"  MaxUploadFileSize="900000000"/>
    <TrackChangesSettings CanAcceptTrackChanges="False"></TrackChangesSettings>

    When I insert video or song file using "MediaManager" , html view of rad Editor shows likes

    <object height="150" width="150" type="application/x-oleobject"
    <param name="URL" value="/media/MySongFile.mp3"><embed src="/media/MySongFile.mp3"
    pluginspage="" width="150" height="150">

    It shows my uploaded file(mp3) with MediaPlayer which can be play . I don't want to show likes this . I just want to show Download Link to download my uploaded file . How can I do that ?

    Hello Lwin,

    Thank you for your question.

    The Editor does not support this functionality out-of-the-box and a custom implementation will be required to achieve the desired behavior.

    The following article in our online demo shows how a similar to the requested functionality can be accomplished by attaching to the OnClientPasteHtml event of the Editor: Editor - OnClientPasteHtml.

    In your scenario, by checking if the MediaManager command has fired the event, you will be able to get the HTML that would be pasted into the editor and edit it. You can, for example, capture the src attribute of the embed element (which would point to the uploaded file) and prepare an anchor tag with the same value for its href attribute. Finally, by firing args.set_value(div.innerHTML), you can paste into the editor the custom-made link.

    I hope that you will find the provided information helpful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
