    Hello everyone,

    I want to embed my own icons for enumeration in the RadEditor. I can't find a way to get make this happen.

    I successfully embedded my own paragraphs, css classes (and so on..) with the help of the EditorToolsFile.xml.

    My goal is this: you simply mark your text and choose a css-class (e.g. icon1) and this css-class/enumeration takes care of the rest.

    Currently I tried it this way, but the images doesn't get shown (even if I enter "url("../icons)" or "url("projectname/icons")...

    style_telerik.css (file):

    .icon { 
            background: transparent url(“~/icons/enum/nav_up_right_green.png”) no-repeat 0px 50%; 
            padding-left: 20px; 


      <class name="icons" value=".icon" /> 
        <item name="~/App_Themes/xxxxxxx/css/style_telerik.css" /> 

    Another way was to create a dropdown field in the toolbar of the RadEditor. The images get shown, but the drag & drop logic behind is missing and I'm not sure where I have to put it :)

        <tool name="Icons" Name="icons" type="dropdown" PopupWidth="200px" PopupHeight="150px"
         <item name="&lt;img src='/projectname/icons/enum/nav_up_right_green.png'/> " value="~/icons/enum/nav_up_right_green.png" /> 
         <item name="&lt;img src='/projectname/icons/enum/nav_up_right_red.png'/> " value="~/icons/enum/nav_up_right_red.png" /> 

    I hope you can follow me :) Every answer is gladly appreciated.

    Hello Carsten Koster,

    Can you try the following way:

    1. Crate a simple css class under your Theme folder ( App_Themes/MyTheme)

        background-color: Lime; 

    2. In this folder - MyTheme create new folder - Images ( so you will have the following structure MyTheme/Images.

    In Images folder put your image.

    3. Then load the css file and our img class.

     public void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            textEditor.CssClasses.Add("Img Class"".img");  

    Sincerely yours,
