I have a radeditor on an ajax modal window and the html and design buttons float on the screen and don't stay with the editor.  Is there any way to fix this? 

For example, if I scroll the modal window the buttons don't stay with the radeditor.

I am having a similar problem. The design, html, and preview buttons/images do not scroll with the rest of the page. However, I do not use it in a modal popup. Is this a known issue?

Hi guys,

Could you please, set the following class

    <style type="text/css">
    .rade_editorModes
    {
        position: static !important;
    }
    </style>

which should fix the problem? If you still experience any problems, open a support ticket and send a sample working project that demonstrates the floating buttons issue. I will examine it and try to provide a solution.

Kind regards,

I was wondering if there was something in the documentation that tells us more about what these styles are and so on. I have ran into a number of other issues with the rad control that seem to be taken care of with a style change, which is cool. However at the same time it would be nice to know of where I can find more information on other things like this.

I am assuming what I am typing into is a rad editor, and was wondering what the toolbar settings were for this, because this is exactly what I was looking for in terms of what options to have available.

Hello John,

The behavior you have stumbled upon is not a bug with RadEditor, but rather a long time bug with Internet Explorer, named "the guillotine bug".

In brief - relatively positioned elements in parents with some positioning (relative, absolute or static) cause that element not to scroll along with the other content, but to remain static on top of the browser.

The same is the case with RadEditor modes. We are aware of this issue and think of ways of solving and using a different approach.

Actually, we use relative positioning for that particular element in order to negatively offset it with one pixel top, so the modes' buttons top border concurs with the bottom border of the editable area for aesthetic purposes. Please, take a look at the picture I sent you in order to get a better idea of this technique.

Sincerely yours,

Thanks for the response on explaining what was causing the issue, I had heard of the bug that you mentioned below and the fix you sent over worked. What I was asking though was is there somewhere in the documentation that explain what other little tidbits that can be used in cases like this.

Reason for asking this is because some of the recent posts that I have made have ended up with solutions using stylesheets.

Hi John,

There is a troubleshooting section in the RadEditor's help, but it does not list these glitches. I will add them in the documentation so if anyone else experiences this problem to find a solution. Of course, the forums are public and everyone can search here for solutions.

Best regards,
