    Hi there,

    I was using the old rad editor,(which uses RadEditor.Net2.dll)

    I now got the latest version of rad and I have installed it on my machine.

    Is there a way to upgrade the old to this new version (which uses Telerik.Web.UI.dll)

    Like most of the websites still has old version of rad? i want to upgrade it to this new one , but not sure how.

    Is there any documentation somewhere so i can upgrade my rad editor?

    Please Help,

    Please, see the following help article which provides guidance how to upgrade the old to the new editor: Migration from RadEditor Classic to RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX.

    I am attempting to upgrade the editor controls in my application from the version 5 editor (classic) to the latst AJAX version.

    The version 5 editor had the concept of opening and closing whereby the user clicked on a 'compose' button and the editor opened, and then they had the option or Updating or Cancelling. I cannot seem to get this working in the new version of the editor and I noticed that the ShowSubmitAndCancelButtons property does not exist in the latest version.

    My user base has specifically asked from this open/close behaviour to be retained if I upgrade. Can you tell me if it is possible to configure this in the latest version? If so, are there any demos of this?

    Hello Martin,

    The RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX was intended to be as simple to configure as possible - and we decided to follow the familiar pattern of TextBox as this is in fact how the editor is used in almost all cases. The development paradigm is that the editor is a part of a larger page that has some other means of making a postback or a callback - and the editor should not interfere in it. Thus, the Submit and Cancel buttons were removed.

    You can see how to add Cancel and Submit buttons in this help article: Adding the Save and Cancel Buttons to a Toolbar.

    If you want to disable it you can use the Enabled property as shown in this article: Disabling RadEditor.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
