The system that I am working on already has a image library subsystem that we would like to reuse.  I would like to:

  1. Create an aspx page with a RADEditor control and create a custom tool button for the control.
  2. When the user presses the custom button, an existing "Image selector" form is presented (modally).  (We do not want to use the RAD Image Manager).
  3. When the user selects an image and dismisses this form, an HTML <img> tag is constructed and placed on the clipboard and the modal form is dismissed.
  4. At this point, I would like to have the <img> HTML tag inserted into the body of the document being editted in the RADEditor control from the clipboard, automatically.

Is this possible and if so, how would I do it?

Hi Frazer,

You can implement your own custom dialog that will insert images in the content area of RadEditor.

Please note that it is also not possible to copy content from the clipboard and upload the image to the server with JavaScript due to browser security restrictions. That is why the images should be uploaded on the server and accessible through the HTTP protocol.
