ASP.NET Rich Text Editor - Tables, Mail Merge and More (Coming soon in v15.2)

To make sure that you’re developing with the best feature rich controls in the market, we have added some popular (and most requested) features in the v15.2 release of the RichText Editor.


In this release we are happy to provide table support in the RichText Editor. For this, we have added some Office style features to create and modify tables inside your document.

Also styling tables and individual cells is done the Office way. We have added 2 “Contextual Ribbon Tabs” which will be shown when putting the cursor inside a table. These ribbons give you quick access to merging/splitting cells, deleting/adding rows and columns, and specifying other cell/table properties.

Mail Merge

In the current v15.1 release of the RichText Editor, we provided mail merging capabilities. In the v15.2 release we have taken it a step further by allowing you to visually select and insert auto-updated fields from a bound datasource. You also have the possibility to switch between the live merged data and the field-codes by clicking the button in the ribbon:

Headers and Footers

Yes! We have support for headers and footers inside your documents! This includes insertion of different headers and footers on even and odd pages. A contextual tab in the Ribbon Control will be shown, enabling you to insert specific items like page numbers and counts in the header and footer.



To navigate quickly back and forward through your document, you can now put bookmarks inside the document. These bookmarks can also be bound to hyperlinks.
