I am lookign at upgrading from the RadEditor v4.05 to the new AJAX Controls and am having issues with the new rad editor control.  The toolbars do not display correctly in my project, however in the live examples project they work fine so I am sure it's something I have not included in my project.

All of the buttons are jumbled, overlayed and spread out in a random fashion and it looks like it would be a CSS position issue.

All I have done in my project is added the new rad editor control and selected a skin and assigend some content.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi David,

Have you read the following help article on the subject: Migration from RadEditor Classic to RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX.
Does the Ajax editor use the ToolsFile.xml file of the old one? If yes, please remove the ToolsFile property and test again.

Could you please open a support ticket and send a screenshot of the problem and a sample project that demonstrates the issue? I will examine it and once I reproduce the problem I will provide a solution.

Best regards,

Thanks for the prompt reply.  I have found that it appears to be a problem with the style sheets I am using in my Master Page.  My editor control is on a content page within a master page that has various CSS styles applied to it.

The editor v4.0.5 works fine but the new editor doesn't.  If I remove the styles then both versions appear correctly.

I recall seeing some CSS tricks on one of the forums but can't find it again.

Hi David,

RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX has a new optimized toolbar architecture based on css image sprites, which optimizes the loading speed of the editor. It seems that you have some global css styles for UL or LI  tags on the page with the editor that are breaking the toolbar appearance.

Generally, it is not recommended to use global styles with third party controls because obviously the third party controls consist HTML and your global styles can easily spoil their design, but if you open a support ticket and send a sample working project along with your css stylesheet, I will examine it and try to provide a solution for the problem.


Kind regards,
