I am trying to update the contents of the control using Javascript.   I can update the value of a simple text box but not the RadEditor.  

In order to update a simple aspx textbox I use the code

var editor = document.getElementById('<%= txtTest.ClientID %>');

editor.value = "some text";

How do i do the same for a RadEditor rich text box?   

Thanks.

(I am using the lastest version of the control)

Hi Patrick,

Our controls have their own client-side objects that are obtained through the $find() method from the MS AJAX framework and you need to use their API in order to modify them:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-getting-reference-to-radeditor.html
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-getting-familiar-with-client-side-api.html

So, here is an example of setting some HTML in RadEditor:
var editor = $find("<%=RadEditor1.ClientID%>"); //get a reference to RadEditor client object
editor.set_html("<strong>I am text that is  bold</strong>"); //set some content

More about the set_html() method is available here: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/editor-set-html.html
