Hi,

We use version 2008.3.1314.20 for our application.
I would like to enable the possibility to use CTRL+V to paste clipboard content to an textarea submitted to the editor.
Unfortunatly this results into the following error in a telerik javascript resource (row 10345):

 

var _9c4=new Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.GenericCommand("Paste",this._contentWindow);
var _9c5=this.getSelection().getRange();
var _9c6=Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.Utils.getUniqueID();
if(_9c5.pasteHTML){
_9c5.pasteHTML(" <font id='"+_9c6+"'> </font>"); <-- this is where the error takes place
}else{
this.pasteHtml("<font id='"+_9c6+"'> </font>");
}

The same behaviour is shown when using the demo live examples shipped with this version of the rad controls.
Testing it on the demo's on the telerik site i discovered the using CTRL+V is disabled for the text editor.

Can you please help me out with this problem. Using the attribute unselectable=on is not an option because i want our customers to be able to select the textarea.

Hi Gerco,

At the moment RadEditor does not support the requested paste functionality in textboxes and textareas. We have logged this feature request into our PITS system, and it is in process of research and investigation. I will bring it to the attention of our developers to increase this feature's priority.

In addition, the version that you are using is rather old and it is highly recommended to use the latest version of RadControls (currently RadControls for ASP.NET Q2 2010 ver.2010.2.713).

Kind regards,
Dobromir
