My company has assigned me the task of updating one of our older programs by adding a Rich Text Editor into one of the comment fields. In order to achieve this with our Q3 2009 Telerik controls, I created a button that opens a RadMarkupEditor dialog.

My only concern is -- how can I change the title of the dialog?

Hello Eric,

Using version Q3 2009 you cannot access the ribbonbar title directly. However, you can create and show the form manually Here is a sample:
ShapedForm form = new ShapedForm();
RadMarkupEditor editor = new RadMarkupEditor();
 
editor.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
RadRibbonBar ribbonBar = (RadRibbonBar)editor.Controls[1];
ribbonBar.Text = "hello world!";
 
form.Controls.Add(editor);
form.Shape = new RoundRectShape(5);           
form.BorderWidth = 2;
form.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen;
form.BorderColor = Color.FromArgb(153, 182, 224);
form.Padding = new Padding(3);
form.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(600, 300);           
form.ShowDialog();

Please consider that we added many improvements and new controls since 2009. In Q2 2011 we introduced a new RadRichTextBox control which is fully implemented in .Net. That is why I recommend that you try our latest release. We will appreciate your feedback.

In addition, please ask the license holder that has purchased the Telerik controls to add you as a License Developer to his account. This will allow us to continue supporting your further enquiries.

Thank you for your understanding.
 
Best wishes,

I believe we have one of your latest controls, but this is an old application and there's a lot to modify by "moving up" our controls, especially having to change our GAC around on our virtual machines and the like.

One more question, and I hope you'll be lenant on your rule (as my boss is on vacation and won't be back until Wednesday to add me) -- how would I be able to make the form autoclose when the "Apply" button is clicked?

Thanks,
Eric

Hi Eric,

You can use the following code to attach to the Click event for the Apply button and close the form:
RibbonTab tab = (RibbonTab)ribbonBar.CommandTabs[0];
RadRibbonBarGroup applyGroup = (RadRibbonBarGroup)tab.Items[4];
RadButtonElement applyButton = (RadButtonElement)applyGroup.Items[0];
applyButton.Click += new EventHandler(applyButton_Click);
 
void applyButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    RadElement button = (RadElement)sender;
    RadRibbonBar ribbonBar = (RadRibbonBar)button.ElementTree.Control;
    Form form = ribbonBar.FindForm();
    form.Close();
}

I hope this helps. Write back after your boss adds you as a license developer and we will update our records accordingly.

Instead of creating a new thread, I thought I'd ask one final question here.

Since the way that the background color displays in a RadDataGrid is wonky, is there a way to [i]just[/i] disable the 'highlight' button? I've gotten as far as to isolate the RadItem that contains the two "buttons" (Highlight and Font Color) but can't seem to break it down any further.

Hello Eric,

I am not sure that I fully understand what you want to achieve. Please, could you elaborate a bit more and describe in detail the desired result.
