Hey All,

I am using the RadEditor control (the most recent version) and have implemented a custom toolbar button with a custom dialog.  The controls TextChanged event was working just fine until I implemented the custom toolbar button and dialog.  However, since the implementation of those items the TextChanged event quit firing.  My situation may be unique because I am using a commercial version of Sitefinity.  The editor control is being used in a custom edit mode for a custom control.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the TextChanged event is not firing?

Thank You.
-Drew

Just to narrow things down a bit, something in the following code block is causing the issue.  If I don't add the DialogDefinition to the editor then the TextChanged event fires correctly.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

DialogDefinition insertRateDialogDefinition = new DialogDefinition("~/CustomDialogs/InsertRate.ascx", new DialogParameters());

insertRateDialogDefinition.Modal = true;
insertRateDialogDefinition.VisibleTitlebar = true;
insertRateDialogDefinition.VisibleStatusbar = true;
insertRateDialogDefinition.Width = Unit.Pixel(700);
insertRateDialogDefinition.Height = Unit.Pixel(500);
insertRateDialogDefinition.ReloadOnShow = true;
this.container.RadEditor.AddDialogDefinition("InsertRate", insertRateDialogDefinition);

Hi Drew,

I tried to reproduce the reported problem with the latest Q3 2008 futures build of RadEditor, but unfortunately to no avail. You can see my test in the attached video and examine my project.

If the problem does not exist on your side when you comment or remove the DialogDefinition code, then my suggestion is to create your custom dialogs using aspx pages and to open the via the editor's showExternalDialog method. This solution works without any codebehind and DialogDefinition code. You can find information on how to create custom aspx dialogs in the following article: Add Custom Dialogs (scroll below) as well as in this live example: Make Images from Text.
