    I've seen many samples of using RadEditor as the web editor for a property in a usercontrol. However, this does not seem like a user friendly approach. The rad editor should just display in place of the textbox. Is there any way to make that happen?

    Hi Adam,

    Thank you for using our services.

    I have responded to you in a thread that you have asked the same question. Here is what I wrote there:

    The RadEditor approach is achievable. However for this you would have to develop custom control designers for setting some properties. Then you will be able to set a markup for those control designers and add a RadEditor to the control designer. More information on how to develop custom control designers can be found here:

    Hi Ivan,

    Thank you for your response. I'm a little disappointed that the radeditor feature isn't baked into the framework --it seems like a pretty common thing in most cms's. The cost of having to develop your own control designer is just too high for this project. However, I'm glad you cleared things up for me!

    We may have to look at drupal which has more out of the box functionality :(

    Hi Adam,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

    The designer approach is universal way to have whatever control you like for your properties. It is a nothing more than a user control.

    We will be glad if you could share your experience in that area.
