Hello,

I am using the RAD Editor to post articles. We would like the HTML formatting to be retained. But when we save it to the database the HTML tags are converted to blocks

e.g. <BR /> is converted to [BR/] which causes the formatting to be completely lost.

Can anyone please assist?

Thanks
Bala

Hi Bala,

Please check the demo link below.You need to pass the Content property value of the RadEditor instead of the Text property

Thanks for your response - how can I accomplish the same from the client side (using javascript)?

Thanks

Hi Bala,

I am not quite sure that I understand your scenario. By default, RadEditor has two properties:
  • Text - returns the content of the RadEditor without the HTML tags
  • Content - returns the full content of the RadEditor with the HTML
Could you please provide more detailed information on the subject? How do you implement that HTML tag conversion?

If you want to avoid using CodeBehind you can check the following help article:
Codeless Save In Database ASP.Net 2.0

You can also get the editor's content on the client using the get_html(true) method.

Hello Virendra,

Formatting can be stripped automatically on page submit using the OnClientSubmit event and FormatStripper command of RadEditor. Here is how to strip all formatting except the new lines, e.g.

<script type="text/javascript">
function OnClientSubmit(editor)
{
     editor.fire("FormatStripper", {value : "ALL_NO_BRAKES"});
}
</script>
<telerik:RadEditor runat="server" OnClientSubmit="OnClientSubmit"/>

After that you should obtain the editor's content on the server through the Content property (not the Text one).
