How to prevent HtmlEditor from displaying html tags within editor?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I'm using the ajaxcontroltoolkit htmleditor to create blog posts for my website.  The editor works fine when entering a new article.  When I click the Bold button, the text appears bold.  When I hit enter, the editor creates a new line, etc.  However, I also use the htmleditor when I want to edit a preexisting article.  The problem I'm receiving, is when I bring a preexisting article into the editor, it displays a mess of html tags rather than the clean, formatted text.

For example, if I type the following into the editor:


Hello World

How are you?


...when I go to edit it, it shall appear as:


<span style="font-weight: bold">Hello World</span><br /> <br />How are you?


Is there any way to force the editor to display this text properly when editting rather than showing the html tags?

Embed Youtube inside Ajax Html Editor- problem



When inserting a simple embed of youtube inside the ajax editor, on firefox and chrome problems occur. On the other hand on internet explorer 8 everything works fine. I found this solution http://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/t/4228/bug-in-ajax-html-editor.aspx . 

My question is where do I find the DesignPanel.pre.js ?

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!

ASP.NET HTML Editor - Upload images

The article ASP.NET HTML Editor - Upload images was added by adarshtated on Tuesday, June 29, 2010.

In this article we are seen how to create a custom HTML Editor control to add image button in it.Create A Class-----------CustomEditor.cs------------------Add Name Spaceusing AjaxControlToolkit.HTMLEditor;namespace MyControls{ public class CustomEditor



I'm looking into using the HTMLEditor from the toolkit. I know its open source which isn't the problem. The problem is that I don't want to have my program to be open source but would like to use the editor. The source code I'd like to be paid for where the compiled version (the dlls and aspx pages) will be free to download. Is it possible to do that?

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?

Ajax HTML Editor and Timers

Howdy, I have a extended htmleditor in a mainpage and I have a seperate timer in a control that is on the master page to notify the user of messages. Everytime the timer fires, after text has been entered into the htmleditor, focus is automatically pulled to the htmleditor.    If I disable the timer control there is no issue. I have tried wrapping both the timer, with an updatepanel as well as the htmleditor and the other textboxes on the page with updatepanel, here is the updatepanel below. I have even tried the autofocus to false on the htmleditor.  I am using ajax 3.5 and IE8. Anyone got any suggestions? <asp:UpdatePanel ID="uppnlContent" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional" RenderMode="Inline"> <ContentTemplate>

Query Sharepoint list, rich text columns returning HTML tags

Hi! So I have an issue that maybe someone of you have encountered as well. I am querying a Sharepoint list and creating a report from the data collected from this list. This all works fine except that one of the columns in this list is of the type "Multiple lines of text" and also supports "rich text" with different fonts, sizes and so on. This has the effect that the text returned from this column is wrapped in HTML tags that specifies how the text should be formatted. Naturally I do not want this HTML code to appear in my report so for now I have used custom code to do a string.replace and replaced for example <div></div> and <br> with "". However, this column also has url references to documents and these links shows up like this "/servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx">http://servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx There is some sort of double reference to the document that I guess like the HTML tags are embedded in the answer from the rich text column and this is not so easy to do a string replace on because the url varies with the different document and document names. My question really is if anyone of you have done a similar report that I am doing, and have encountered this fenomen with this sharepoint column and how you did to solve this? I have tried to creat


 Hi, i  use the editor to ask user to modify content of a page.   Then i want to save the changes into a SQL DB.  My probleme is that the only thing i can get from the editor.content is the initial data.   The changes that user made seen to be not available.  I'm sure i'm missing something but what??? thank you

How do I turn off HTML validation in the Content Editor Web Part?

I'm fairly used to SharePoint 2007, where I could inject pretty much whatever I wanted into the CEWP, and among other things affect the page style or create div-based layouts. However, in SharePoint 2010, inserting code into the CEWP seems to go through a HTML validation process, which inserts and converts the original HTML code and ends up in incorrect results. How can I turn off this HTML validation stuff, or alternatively, is there any other way for me to inject HTML into a web part as I wish?

HTML Editor: Change Edit Panel Background Color

I've created a custom editor from the default AJAX HTMLEditor control to limit the toolbar buttons, etc. But I can't see how to set the background color of the text area in design mode. I'd like to set the background color to something other than white, because with my app most users will want to use white as their text color. White text on a white background is no bueno. The editor has ForeColor and BackColor properties, but these values don't control the text area. I tried creating custom css styles based on Editor.css, but all I end up with is an HTMLEditor without a border. Am I approaching this wrong? Any suggestions?
