    Telerik has by far the best HTML editor on the market for ASP and as was noted by Telerik, its one of the best selling products that Telerik has. This begs the question - why is there not something similar provided by Telerik for WinForms? We are having to look at other companies to provide that functionality and the ones that are rich enough are not compatible in look and feel with Telerik. Tools like TXTextControl are very rich, but it would be good to see this kind of support in the Telerik suite to complete the offering - its a bit of a gaping hole.

    Also, while the basic HTML-Like support is useful in things like the grid, it would be even more useful with just a few more formatting features such as Background-Color (so you could highlight a section of the text with a yellow background for example) or strikethrough (so you could show edits where a section of text was deleted). We are trying to mirror our web product which the Telerik Grid allows us to do and again are having to resort to third party alternatives.

    Alternatively Rich Text would be an option in either case - the key is to be able to display the data with a few more options.

    Are there any plans for either?

    Hello Dion,

    Thank you for the nice words about our RadEditor for ASP.NET. Indeed, we also believe that this is the best HTML editor for .NET on the market - it took us good 5 years to reach this level of excellence.

    It seems that you found the forum post where a Telerik WinForms editor is discussed at length: WinForms Applikation with RadEditor. We just replied to your comments there and I am not sure there is anything else that we can add at this time.

    Currently, the HTML-like formatting does not support backcolor and strikethrough, however, we are constantly working on improving the functionality and your feedback is much appreciated. We will put your suggestion in our TODO list for our future releases. Note that we have received many more requests for paragraph indentation, lists and hyperlinks and we will probably focus our immediate efforts on these. Thanks for your time and do not hesitate to write back if you have further questions.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
