I notice that the RadEditor, instead of actually doing a cut, copy or paste operation will just tell the user to press CTRL-X, etc. Is there a way to activate the functionality of these buttons? Is there a reason why this was not implemented?

Hi Chris,

The big drawback here is that Firefox does not allow programmatic access to the clipboard with JavaScript. You can see the following Mozilla's article on the topic: Setting Prefs for the Mozilla Rich Text Editing Demo. It is almost impossible to not paste the content in some container rather than in another in Firefox.

Nevertheless, I have good news that the guys from Mozilla have provided an onpaste event in the new Firefox 3 and there are good changes to control the pasted content in FF as well, which will allow us to provide a way to paste content in Firefox 3 via the toolbar buttons. We need further research and time, but the chances are good that it will be possible to implement this functionality.



Kind regards,
