    I have a simple widget with two edit areas. Is it possible to edit the data using the Show Editing Tools like you can a Content Block? That is click on the edit button and have a Rad Text Editor popup, not from the backend but from the live site with the Tools Gear.

    Sorry for being wordy, but I don't really know what that Tools Gear from the front end is called?

    Hello Randy,

    You could use a RadEditor in your User Control, where you simply need to declare the RadEditor on the template (.ascx file) as the following and register the control in Sitefinity:

    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" Id="MyEditor"/>

    Then you could implement your logic in your custom control. For instance if the Edit button is clicked the RadEditor will appear.

    You can find some additional information about the RadEditor here:
