    I am building a review function where user can read the document and provide feedback without changing the text. But when user provides feedback, user selects the text, highlights it and writes comments in another text box. To achive this functionality I want the editor to appear with its tool bar (or may be without a tool bar) and contents in ReadOnly mode, where user can not change the text but may be able to change the formatting such as changing background color or forecolor. Is there any server side or design time setting I can use to have the page rendered the way I want it to work?

    Hi Santosh Pradhan,

    You can use the following code to achieve your scenario:

    <script type="text/javascript"
    function OnClientLoad(editor) 
         editor.enableEditing(false);  //disable the toolbar and content area
         var tool = editor.getToolByName("ForeColor"); //enable the fore color tool
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad"
        <Content>sample content</Content>
