Thursday, November 29, 2007

If you need a Rich Text Editor on your ASP.NET website there's some good news for you. Kannan Sundararajan has written a Rich Text Editor control which you can directly use on your website.

The control comes with loads of features which include font styling, emoticons, code blocks and clipboard support. It also enables you to view the html code generated by the editor. You can read more about its features here.

The source-code of the control is shared and is available on CodePlex. Also, view the live demo of the RTE control.

Its a superb control to use with forums, blogs or content management applications. Just add the control to your page and give your users this cool interface.
