    I have a problem.  The problem isn't what I can't do, it's what I can do, with RadEditor.

    I have a RadEditor running in the FormTemplate Popup of a RadGrid.  The application itself is an ASP.Net C# 4.0 web app running a relatively recent version of Telerik (2012.2.607).  The Editor itself is bound to a varchar(max) field in a SQL database through LinqToSQL.

    The problem (if it a problem) is this.  Way back when, when I was first starting this project, I could have sworn that the ability to paste images from the clipboard into a RadEditor in Firefox (and only FireFox) was a fluke and a curiosity, since it was impossible to do it in IE or Chrome.  Furthermore I could have sworn I tested the ability of my program to save same images and I thought it had failed.

    I've just retested my app and it appears not only can I save graphic images pasted into the RadEditor while running in FireFox, I can view them in IE and Chrome.  I've tested this running my app both on my local machine and on a server.

    So I suppose my question is, is this still just a fluke or can I expect in the near future the ability to paste and save in IE and Chrome?  Is this intentional on the part of Telerik or more a matter of browser technology?

    Hello,

    The requested functionality is discussed in the following forum thread: Paste image from clipboard in RadEditor.

    It also is logged for research in our Ideas and Feedback public portal and you can vote for it: Provide ability to paste/insert images from clipboard/local drive directly into RadEditor.

    Kind regards,

    Interesting.

    Come to think of it, is there any way to prevent pasting of images into the RadEditor when running in FireFox?  

    (The idea being uniformity of use across all browsers, not to mention whether or not we need image pasting capability in the first place.)

    Hello,

    Yes, you can attach to the OnClientPasteHtml event and strip the img tags when the Paste command is executed.

    All the best,
