    Hello. Thank you in advance for your help and advice.

    Client is using Telerik RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX with Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 web browser. A problem exists with the "Find And Replace" dialog box in this browser. You can reproduce problem on the current (17 August 2012) RadEditor demo page. Please try these steps.

    1. Open RadEditor demo page using Internet Explorer 8
    2. Click in RadEditor text area to set focus. Press Ctrl+F or click "binocular" icon to open "Find And Replace" dialog
    3. Enter text in the "Find" input field. Text should actually exist in document. For example, enter "HTML" or "Microsoft"
    4. Press Tab key to focus on "Find" button. Press Enter key to search

    After you press Enter key. RadEditor will correctly locate and highlight the word in the document. But also the highlighted word is deleted and replaced with a linebreak character. It seems that the Enter keypress event is not terminated correctly. Similar problem exists when using Spacebar key to activate Find button. The search word is highlighted but then it is deleted and replaced with an empty space character.

    This problem was not existing in a previous version of RadEditor. (It seems to be new problem in about last year.) Also it works OK in other browser like Mozilla Firefox. Please is there a way to make Enter key work in "Find And Replace" dialog box in Internet Explorer 8?

    Thank you.
