Hi there,

I need to simulate a A4 report page, in which the text could be editable with the Kendo UI Editor (inline-mode). I've already seen the inline editor demo, it looks great, but the only issue is that I need for example 3 columns within the report page, just like the multi-column text editing in office word. in addition, I will have a word count for all these three columns together. Is this doable at all with the editor?

Regards

Zhonghai

Hello Zhonghai,

To create three columns of text you will need to create three editors:

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/editor/inline-editing

There is not built-in way to get the number of the words in the the value of the editor. e.g.

http://dojo.telerik.com/@pesho/EXiJo

Feel free to extend and improve the approach of calculating the words via regex or in other way.

Hello Petur,

that's exactly the point. Using three editors is totally different than three columns in one editor. In three separate editors to edit a big text block, i need to manage cursor, and it's almost impossible. I mean, imaging you are editing text in Microsoft Office Word, you have more than one column to edit! that's the case I am expecting.

Hello Zhonghai,

I am afraid it is not possible to format the content of the Kendo editor in three columns, neither I can suggest a work-around to achieve it. Sadly such scenario is not supported.
