    Hi,

    I am using the lastest telerik ajax controls (Q1 2011) and am testing with ie9 (9.01) and Firefox 5.0.
    When I display a RadEditor in a popup dialog (JQuery UI dialog) the radeditor displays but it is entirely read only i.e. none of the control values can be changed.

    I have created a simple test project (using MVC3) which I can send on.

    The strange thing is that the editor will display fine when ie9 is in compatability mode or I include the following line in the header:

        <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

    However, neither of these solutions are ideal and it does not get arounf the firefox issue.

    Is this a known issue? Do u want me to send you my sample project?

    Kind regards,

    Conor

    Hello Conor,

    My suggestion for your scenario is to execute the editor.onParentNodeChanged() client-side method of RadEditor when displaying the editor in the jQuery dialog.
    var editor = $find("<%=RadEditor1.ClientID%>");
    editor.onParentNodeChanged();

    If this does not help, please provide a simple working project which demonstrates the problem.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the quick reply but unfortunately this solution does not work.
    I have tried setting this property both when the dialog opens and in the onclientload event of the readeditor (n.b. the OnClientLoad event does not fire when using ie9 or firefox).

    I have tried attach a simple MVC3 solution to demonstrate but it will not let me attach the project.

    Kind regards,

    Conor

    Hello Conor,

    If you open a support ticket from your account and you will be able to attach zip files.

    Please, have in mind that RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX is not MVC control and it does not offer support for MVC. We recommend using our Editor for MVC extension in MVC projects instead of RadEditor.

    All the best,
