    we're using MOSSRadEditor in a Sharepoint application. It works fine, but when a user clicks on the "link manager" tool, he can access to a "document manager" icon, which we would like to mask.

    Is there a way to prevent user access to this tool ? Using the configfile.xml, or maybe in the code ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Daniel,

    Please, see this live example: Customize Built-in Dialogs. It will show you how to register the external editor's dialogs. After that open the EditorDialogs\LinkManager.ascx file, locate and hide the following element by setting style="display:none;", e.g.

    <td style="display:none;padding-left: 4px;">
        <tools:StandardButton runat="server" id="DocumentManager" Name="DocumentManager">

    Save the file.

    For your MOSS Scenario, you should set the ExternalDialogsPath property in you respective ConfigFile.xml or ListConfigFile.xml, which are located in the /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/ folder.

    For example add the following code (5.x.x is the version of RadEditor for MOSS. Change the x.x with your version):
    <property name="ExternalDialogsPath">/_wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources</property>

    Copy the LinkManager.ascx in the mentioned above folder and modify it.
