    Hello all,

    I am using a RadEditor in where I need to enable Edit Mode or Preview Mode based on permissions (Only specific users can edit the content).

    So, it is working OK but because of space, I need to use the "Floating" toolbar option.

    The issue appears when I set Preview Mode + Floating Toolbar...and it is that the toolbar allows me to edit the content...If I use "Default" Toolbar appears as "grey out" and I cannot use it...achieving what I need...but if I go back to "Floating" mode, the restriction goes off.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas about what could be happening.

    This is what I am calling in the "OnLoad" method...

    private void SetEditorMode()
               this.HelpContentRadEditor.ToolbarMode = EditorToolbarMode.Floating;
               this.HelpContentRadEditor.EditModes = EditModes.Preview;

    I also tried with JavaScript with no luck...

    function OnClientLoad(editor, args) {
        setTimeout(function () {
        }, 150);

    Thanks all for your help!!!

    If the user does not have sufficient permissions you can hide the floating button or directly its toolbar using the following script:

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad"></telerik:RadEditor>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientLoad(editor) {
            setTimeout(function () {
                var button = $telerik.$(".ToggleFloatingToolbar")[0];
       = "none";
            }, 1000);

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    It worked perfectly. I just removed the timing thing when implemented.

    Thanks for your help!
