Hi,
 I'm looking to add some text/html to a rad editor on page load.

The Rad Editor is being used on a NewForm.aspx page as a replacement for the default rich text editor. As the control is being added dynamically, i can't obtain a reference using the control name:

var editor = $find("<%=RadEditor1.ClientID%>"); 


So my approach is to traverse over the DOM and find the ID of the RAD editor control. I can do this successfully using the below javascript:

 

<script type="text/javascript">  
 
_spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("fillDefaultValues");  
function fillDefaultValues() {  
 
 var oJobBrief = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("textarea""TextField""Job Brief");  
   
 var temp1 = oJobBrief.parentNode.previousSibling;   
 var oRadEditor = $find(temp1.id);  
 oRadEditor._contentArea.innerHTML = "test";  
 
 
}  
 
    function getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle(tagName, identifier, title) {  
 
      var len = identifier.length;  
      var tags = document.getElementsByTagName(tagName);  
 
      for (var i=0; i < tags.length; i++) {  
        var tempString = tags[i].id;  
        if (tags[i].title == title && (identifier == "" || tempString.indexOf(identifier) == tempString.length - len)) {  
          return tags[i];  
        }  
      }  
      return null;  
    }  
</script>  
 
 


Using the $find function on Firefox returns a reference to the Rad editor instance. However I get nothing back when doing this from IE.

Can you help? Is there an easier way to set text in the rad editor for a specific page?

Hi Tom.S,

In our online Knowledge Base you can find an article called How to execute custom code called on RadEditor's events.
http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/aspnet-ajax/sharepoint/how-to-execute-custom-code-called-on-radeditor-s-events.aspx

I think that you might find this helpful.
