    I'm trying to use some existing code to change the style when the Content is changed - on the client with JQuery,
    I see from the HTML that the Rad Editor control is rendered as a textarea.

    This is my jQuery:
    $(document).ready(function () {
        $('textarea').on('keyup', function () {
            alert("Boo 2");


    My problem is the Alert(Boo 2) is not popping up, What am I doing wrong.

    Hi Andy,

    When it comes to client-side scripts we always recommend using the client-side API of the desired control.

    As for the desired functionality - you can use the attachEventHandler() method in order to implement it.

    For more information you could follow these articles:

    I hope this will help you to implement the desired logic.

    Let me know if you need any further assistance.
