    Hi, my client requires a control which looks like a very simple textarea but which has the facility for words to be bold/coloured from the code-behind.
    I had a go at trying to remove everything except the basic text box from your editor control but I couldn't find a way to do that.

    Looks like I'm writing in one now, of course, but it's difficult to see what's going on from view source.

    I'll be very grateful if you can suggest how to do this and even more grateful if I can use one of the Telerik controls to do it.
    And I'd better say up front; sorry if I've missed something obvious.

    Hi John,

    Here is a demo that shows how to do this:

    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.

    Hi Marin. The demo is OK apart from the toolbar, which I don't want in a standard textarea of course.

    The trick appears to be setting ToolbarMode="Default" and removing all tools from BasicTools.xml, at least that's what's working for me so far.

    Many thanks for your help.
