I sometimes like to format the code in the Html tab to make it more readable (i.e. adding spacing, etc.).  I save the html to a database using the radeditor1.Content property.  When I retrieve the html from the database and assign it back to the .Content property my formatting is lost.  Is there any way to prevent the Html tab from reformatting the code?

Thanks.

Hi Dan,

RadEditor's content area is an editable <iframe> and RadEditor is based on the standard browser's RichTextEditing engine. When adding a content to the content area it is modified by the browser which we cannot prevent. Because of this, the required functionality cannot be achieved.

By default, RadEditor has enabled built-in content filter IndentHTMLContent which is modifying the content to make it more readable. It is possible to disable this filter and implement a custom content filter to apply a custom formatting to match the specific scenario, however, this will not allow storing formatting done in the HTML View.

More detailed information regarding built-in content filters and an example of how to create a custom content filter is available in the following help article and live demo:
