How can I set the focus onto the texteditor of the editor. The old Editor from Q2 2007 had an autofocus option which worked perfectly but cannot be adapted to the latest version of the Radeditor.
Radeditor1.Focus() in the preRender didnt work.

in Javascript

var

focussedEditor = $find("<%=Radeditor1.ClientID %>");

focussedEditor.setFocus();

Kind of worked but it sets the entire editor into focus and not exclusively the textfield.

What I would like to achieve is that when the editor is loaded the cursor would be in the textfield and the user can start typing instantly.

Hello Sohrab,

Here is the requested example:

<telerik:radeditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1" OnClientLoad="SetFocusOnRadEditor">

</telerik:radeditor>
<script type="text/javascript">
   function SetFocusOnRadEditor(editor, args)
   {
       setTimeout(function()
       {
        editor.setFocus(); //set the focus on the the editor
       }, 200);
   }
</script>

By firing the setFocus method a little after the full editor's load you will be able to set the focus in the content area.

You can also try editor.get_document().body.focus(); .

Kind regards,

***EDIT***

Hello Rumen,

it is working now. The reason why my attempts weren't working before is that I forgot that I've set the EditMode to "Preview". In this case designing the content is not possible hence I cant see the cursor in the editor.

Apologies for wasting your time :)
