View Full Version : FCKEditor with Coolite

Mar 17, 2010, 6:32 AM
Hi all,

I posted a simple example for those interested in using FCKEditor as alternative to Editor control.
I used FCKEditor 2.6.6. You need the 'fckeditor' folder under the root of your project.
Tested with V1.0 only.

Note: ValidateRequest is set to false in order not to get Security Exception.

Your example running good for single FCK Editor per page but
in case if we have to put more than one FCK Editor and
it render on page dynamically then how it is possible?
