Hi,

I have made custom configuration and toolsfiles and they are working just fine when I use those in publishing pages like this:
<radE:RadHtmlField ID="RadHtmlField" ToolsFile="/_layouts/rad/ToolsFile.xml" ConfigFile="/_layouts/rad/ConfigFile.xml" FieldName="PublishingPageContent" runat="server"></radE:RadHtmlField>

Is there a way to set these customfiles so that they will work also in RAD editor web part?

Best regards,
Jere

Hi Jpalanne,

In order to set properties of the RadEditor in web part you need to modify the respective ConfigFile.xml and ToolsFile.xml, which are locate in /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.3.1.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources folder. (5.3.1.0__1f131a624888eeed) depends on the version of the control.

For more information you can visit our online help http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/set-properties-via-config-file.html

Hi,

I have made a webpart with a single rad-editor. Now I want to define a toolsfile. Is it possible to define a toolsfile from a sharepoint-list? When I make a referenz to "http://.../config/radEditorTools.xml" I get an error like "...is not a valid virtual path".

Is there an other way to get the toolsfile from the sharepoint-list?

Best regards,
Andre

Hello Andre,

In order to set a custom ToolsFile you need to modify the respective ConfigFile.xml or ListConfigFile.xml (for forms such as list, wiki, blog ...), which are located in Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.x.x.x__1f131a624888eeed\Resources folder.

For example you can add the following line:
<property name="ToolsFile">/_layouts/ToolsFile.xml</property> 

I hope this helps.

Is there any guidance on how to deploy these changes to the WPResources folder using the WSP system of SharePoint?

Hello Robin,

Unfortunately we do not have such documentation. Try forwarding your question in a wsp SharePoint related forum.

So there is no guidance for modifying the ConfigFile.xml for multiple servers using the solution framework of SharePoint? I cannot imagine that I'm the only one who is trying to achieve this...
