    I am running into an issue where I need to set document.domain in order to allow communication between rad windows.  an unintended consequence seems to be that radeditors no longer function.  Is there a work around, or fix for this issue?  

    Version : 2010.2.929.40

    Could you please try setting the RadEditor's ContentAreaMode property to Div and see if the problem still exists. If so, could you please provide more detailed information on the specific scenario? A sample page reproducing the problem will be of great help solving this case.

    Kind regards,

    I'm having the same problem. If you try this page you'll notice the editor doesn't work anymore.
    Just by removing the line "document.domain = document.domain;" it starts working again.

    Any ideas?


    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Test1.aspx.cs" Inherits="Test1" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head runat="server">
        <title>Untitled Page</title>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            document.domain = document.domain;
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" ContentAreaMode="Div">

    Unfortunately, we are still unable to find a complete solution for the issue when the document.domain of the page is modified. Regardless the ContentAreaMode property most of the RadEditor's dialogs are displayed inside <iframe>'s and that is causing the problem. We are working on this issue but I am not able to provide a firm estimate for when a fix will be available (if possible).

    This problem is also discussed in the following forum thread:
