    I set width=100%, because I want that my editor resizes every time I do the resize of my browser window, like responsive layout. (I would set a minimum width of 600px)
    But it does not work: the editor does not resize and the scrollbars appear.how can I do? thanks

    to be more clear: I want to act like when it opens in full screen mode!




    ID="RadEditor1" Skin="Silk"

    Hello Jean,

    By design RadEditor does not support size in percentages and this is why its size is not reset when browser window is resized.

    The only possible approach I could suggest you is to implement your all Client-Side logic on the Editor's load and the window resize events. In this function you could take the current size of the browser window and set it as a width of the RadEditor control by using its setSize() method. You can do it in a similar way:
    <telerik:RadEditor Width="100px" Height="750px" ID="RadEditor1" Skin="Silk" runat="server" OnClientLoad="resizeEditor"
        _ToolsFile="/Admin/DocumentsManagementV3/xml/ToolsFile.xml" _SkinID="DefaultSetOfTools">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        Sys.Application.add_load(function () {
            window.onresize = resizeEditor;
        function resizeEditor() {
            var editor = $find("<%=RadEditor1.ClientID %>");
            //set the width and height of the RadEditor
            var windowWidth = $telerik.$(window).width();
            var editorHeight = $telerik.$("#" + editor.get_id()).height();
            editor.setSize(windowWidth - 20, editorHeight);

    Note, that if the initially set width of the Editor is configured in percentages the code above will not work. I hope this helps.
