I'm not sure exactly why but whenever a new table is created in the editor, every cell comes with a "nbsp" inside it by default. Is there a way to easily stop this?

Regards,
Scott

Hi Scott,

When a table is inserted in RadEditor and the content is saved, IE will not display the empty rows/columns that do not contain any data (even  ).

For this reason and to workaround this browser problem, we programmatically put an empty space (  entity) inside each table cell.

Here is an example demonstrating to strip the blanks from the inserted table elements via the TableWizard and Insert Table dropdown:

<script type="text/javascript"> 
    function OnClientPasteHtml(sender, args) 
    { 
        var commandName = args.get_commandName(); 
        var value = args.get_value(); 
        //alert(commandName); 
        if(commandName == "InsertTable" || commandName == "TableWizard") 
        { 
            alert("Original content" + value); 
            var newContent = value.replace(/&nbsp;/gi, ""); 
            alert("Modified content: " + newContent); 
        } 
        args.set_value(newContent);                                     
    } 
    </script> 
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" 
        OnClientPasteHtml="OnClientPasteHtml" 
        ID="RadEditor1" runat="server">  
    </telerik:RadEditor>   


You can find more information about the OnClientPasteHtml event here.

Hi,

Thanks for the timely reply - I tried out this hack and it seems to work pretty good. Do you know of any potental unforseen negative consequences of doing this however?

Hi Scott,

The only negative consequence of &nbsp; stripping will be that IE will not rendering borders on empty table cells. See this page for more information: IE not rendering borders on empty table cells.
