  • Different Toolbar Modes

    Enable the best for your scenario toolbar view of the editor: Default (displaying the most used tools), PageTop, Floating, ShowOnFocus, Ribbonbar, RibbonbarPageTop, RibbonbarShowOnFocus, RibbonBarFloating.

  • Support for IFrame or Div Content Area

    Depending on your scenario, choose iFrame or div for the editor content area. The iFrame mode is a separate document and does not inherit styles from the page it belongs to. The Div content area is part of the current page, which is better for https and cross-site scripting, as well as for compliance with more screen readers.
  • High Level of Customization

    Define your own content filters for content validation, specify which tools to be displayed in the toolbars or create your own command elements, be it buttons or dropdowns. Implement custom dialogs or load external ones. Even create your own file browser content providers to utilize different sources for the dialogs: database, cloud service, custom role-based CSM system, Web Service and applications which use URL rewriters.
  • Rich Client-Side and Server-Side APIs

    Manipulate the editor content and behavior thanks to the rich APIs and handle user actions in an adequate manner. Change properties dynamically on the server and/or on the client, or execute custom code as a result of different events.
  • Accessibility, Standards Compliance and Localization

    Telerik ASP.NET Editor is XHTML-compliant and so is its output. WAI-ARIA and keyboard support, as well as right-to-left mode can be enabled with a single property. A separate component, AccessibleEditor, is isolated to provide higher accessibility level for people with disabilities and was selected by the Royal National Institute of Blind People for their new accessible website. Localize RadEditor to display messages in labels, buttons, dialogs and tooltips in any language using global or local resources.
