    I want to implement the short word replaced with full form feature in RadEditor for ASP.NET, in which if type in ldn it get replaces by London as soon as I press tab/space key. For that I wanted to use the custom dictionary feature where I can store the Shot-word and Full-word combination.
    if someone can help me.

    Hi Ajay,

    I am pasting here the answer we have provided in your ticket with the same question:

    There is no feature or utility in RadEditor that can help you out with such a requirement. 

    Such a functionality/feature can be achieved only  as a custom solution, by using the DOM events of the HTML document. Here it is shown how you can attach DOM events to the content area—http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/editor/client-side-programming/events/onclientload.

    Using the DOM events you can capture the which key is pressed and programmatically interfere with the content. 

    On a site note - I deleted your other forum threads with the same question as they only create duplicates and make information harder to track.
