We are using Telerik for ASP.Net Ajax Q1 2008.

I have the following code:

<telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditorIncompleteComment" runat="server" Width="550px" Height="200px" EditModes="Design" Skin="Outlook" ToolbarMode="ShowOnFocus" EnableResize="False">
      <telerik:EditorTool Name="Bold" />
      <telerik:EditorTool Name="Italic" />
      <telerik:EditorTool Name="Underline" />
      <telerik:EditorTool Name="AjaxSpellCheck" />

When the page is loaded and I click in the RadEditor editing space the toolbar does pop up but it comes up with a minimal width and looks like a thick line. All the tools are hidden.  I can drag the right boundary of this thick line and make the tools visible but that's not user-friendly.

Strangely, the first time I used the Rad Editor, a few days ago, it and its toolbar worked perfectly but I found that recommended script for making the Editor look like a textbox was throwing off other code on this page so I unchecked it all out and rebuilt the Rad Editor, resulting in the toolbar issue described above.  Does the script control the appearance of the toolbar?

My version of the Rad Editor control does not appear to have a property for controlling toolbar size.

Anyone have any thoughts on this or a recommendation?   Thanking you in advance...

Hi Melody,

Q1 2008 does not support IE8, which was released later. If you experience this problem in IE8, you can put the following meta tag

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />

in the head of your page and it will be rendered in IE7 mode in IE8, which should fix the problem.

However, the recommended approach is to upgrade to the latest version 2010.2 929, which is more stable, provides full cross browser support and many new features and bug fixes.

Best regards,
