    Assume end user is trying to copy content from MS word and pasting into rad editor.

    When he Right clicks and choose From MS word or use Ctrl+V , how to prevent him from copying

    1.Any inserted files or any other objects from MS Word.
    2.Tables in MS Word
    3.Forecolor/backcolor information
    4.Any hyperlinks

    But he should be able to copy
    1.Text with Fonts specific to what can be chosen from the RAD editor dropdown.
    2.Text with Font size specific to what can be chosen from the RAD editor dropdown.
    3.Normal formatting like Bold/Italic/Underline,alignment,bulleting etc.

    Please help with this as this is very urgent.

    Thank you.

    Hi Sachidananda,

    RadEditor does not offer the requested stripping functionality out-of-the box and for the time being we do not plan to provide such.

    What you can do is to attach to the OnClientPasteHtml event of RadEditor, obtain the pasted content, strip the unwanted tags and formatting and insert the modified content in the content area:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientPasteHtml(sender, args) {
    var commandName = args.get_commandName();
      var value = args.get_value();
      if (commandName == "Paste")
         //add below regular expressions that will strip the undesired tags, attributes, etc
         value = value.replace(/\<p[^\>]*>/gi, "<br/>").replace(/\<\/p>/gi, "");
         args.set_value(value); //set the modified pasted content in the editor
    <telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" OnClientPasteHtml="OnClientPasteHtml">

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
