HI Telerik

 I have htmlEcoded data coming from an external source. 

If I set the radeditor's content to this htmlEncoded data, it doesn't display properly. If I htmldecode this data and then set it to radeditor's content... it displays properly..

Can you pls explain why it is so. Also is it ok to htmldecode data and display in editor.

Please reply..

Thanks,

Nick.

Hello Nick,

RadEditor is a text editor based on HTML, thus, you need proper HTML in order for the text to be rendered properly. When it is encoded, it is transformed to plain text, and it is no more markup that can be rendered by the browser. RadEditor has no capabilities to programmatically  capture and decode encoded HTML, moreover such behavior would be inappropriate.

In order to properly add content to the editor, you should make sure it is proper HTML, therefore, when programmatically adding encoded HTML, you should first decode it.
