Feature Release

ASPxHTMLEditor allows you to add a text editor with an intuitive user interface that resembles Microsoft Word (with similar toolbars and the same keyboard shortcuts) to your ASP.NET applications. In addition to being a WYSIWYG editor, the ASPxHTMLEditor control supports HTML input. With ASPxHTMLEditor (DevExpress HMTL Editor), you don't have to choose which input method to use, because ASPxHTMLEditor provides automatic two-way synchronization between the visual editor and HTML code. End-users can switch to the code view and edit documents by manually controlling every tag and attribute. This allows them to use even those tags that aren't currently supported by the visual editor. To ensure superior performance, ASPxHTMLEditor initially generates the least amount of code required for its functionality on the client. When end-users need additional elements, such as popup windows for image or hyperlink management, these elements are loaded via AJAX callbacks with ASPxHTMLEditor (DevExpress HMTL Editor).

Updates in v2011 vol 1

  • Document Selector - Extended the Insert Link and Change Link dialogs with the ability to invoke the Select Document dialog - allowing end-users to manage documents stored on the server via a point-and-click UI, rather than entering image Web address information manually. Because the File Manager control is integrated into the Select Document dialog, all file/folder management and upload capabilities (with full customization) are available to you out-of-the-box.
  • Export/Import Support - With DXperience v2011 vol 1, the ASPxHtmlEditor's contents can be imported and exported to/from multiple document formats including:  Rich Text (.rtf), Office Open XML (.docx), MIME HTML (.mht), Open Document (.odt), Plain Text (.txt) and Portable Document (.pdf). Available for export only. You can allow end-users to export editor contents via a specially designed toolbar item (with all required functionality) or you can execute an export/import operation programmatically.
  • Right-To-Left Layout Support - This release includes right-to-left data presentation options for the DevExpress ASP.NET HTML control. When used, all HTML Editor contents and their associated UI elements (including Views, toolbars, toolbar items and built-in dialog forms) can be easily displayed using a right-to-left layout.
