Is there anyway I can override the InsertUnorderedList command's value to add a class of "mainlist" to the <ul> tag?

Our designer has set the css up so that the only unordered lists that get bullets are <ul>'s with that class.

Is there anyway I can change the value of the HTML that is about to get inserted before it gets inserted? I don't want to change any of the logic of the insert, just the HTML.

Thanks.

Hello Zack Wagner,

Here is an example which you can use or customize to achieve your scenario:

<script type="text/javascript">  
function OnClientCommandExecuted(editor, args)  
{  
   //The executed command name is  
   var commandName = args.get_commandName();     
           
   if (commandName == "InsertOrderedList" || commandName == "InsertUnorderedList")  
   {  
        var selElem = editor.getSelectedElement();  
        //set a class to the LI tag(s) 
        selElem.className = "bullet1";  
        //set a class to the OL / UL tags 
        //selElem.parentNode.className = "bullet2";  
   }  
}  
</script>  
    
<telerik:radeditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1"  
    OnClientCommandExecuted="OnClientCommandExecuted">  
</telerik:radeditor>

Thanks!

This ended up getting me there. I had a small problem with what the selected element was (if a UL or OL, don't assign the parentNode) and reverting between the UL that requires a class and the OL that doesn't.

Here's my final working code. It could probably refactored, but this works.
function OnClientCommandExecuted(editor, args) {
    var commandName = args.get_commandName();
    var selElem = editor.getSelectedElement();
    var tagName = "";
    var className = "";
  
    switch (commandName) {
        case "InsertUnorderedList":
            tagName = "UL";
            className = "mainlist";
            break;
        case "InsertOrderedList":
            tagName = "OL";
            className = "";
            break;
    }
  
    if (tagName != "") {
        if (selElem.tagName != tagName) {
            while (selElem.parentNode != null) {
                selElem = selElem.parentNode;
                if (selElem.tagName == tagName)
                    break;
            }
        }
        selElem.className = className;
    }
}

Hi,

 

Where did you apply that JS to become visible to Rad Editor ?

Hello Trevor,

If you are using RadEditor in a standard ASPX/ASCX file, you can place the JavaScript function just above the RadEditor's declaration as shown in the documentation: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/editor/client-side-programming/events/onclientcommandexecuted

If you use RadEditor in Sitefinity, you can see an example how to attach an event and a JS function to it in this Sitefinity forum thread: http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/general-discussions-/how-do-i-radeditor#Mw1uNLZI3EyEMi43C6f7jA.
