We are evaluating various html editor control and telerik is one of them. So far we have found telerik html editor to be very impressive viz-a-viz other vendors out there. There is one important feature we are looking for, seems to be missing from telerik is populating custom drop down from client side. This could be a make or break a deal kind of situation for us. To give you more details, here is the scenario. 

We have a page that has multiple tabs on it, one of the tabs accepts contact list, the list is a tabular screen, so users can enter multiple contacts, in this case all the operations are done on client side, the information is still not persisted on database. There is a second tab in which we show HTML Editor and we need a custom drop down. This custom drop down will show first and last name from the contact list that is populated by users on first tab page screen. As you can make out , the site is highly dynamic and doesn't do a round trip to server. 

We looked at this sample - http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/customdropdowns/defaultcs.aspx 

But they are all populated from server side, in our case, we need to populate drop downs from client side. Would appreciate if anyone from telerik could shed a light on this issue, because our telerik evaluation has hit a roadblack. 

Cheers

Hi Yogesh,

Indeed, the built-in custom dropdowns of RadEditor can be populated only on the server.

What you can do to implement your scenario is to add a new custom dropdown on the toolbar and programmatically replaced it using JavaScript with a standard select HTML dropdown. You can use as a base the solution provided in the following forum thread: Can I add a combobox to radeditor's tools collection?

All the best,
