ASP.NET HTML Editor Resizing (coming in v2010 vol 2)

10 August 2010

In DXperience v2010 vol 2, our ASP.NET team will introduce a resizing feature into our HTML Editor.

How it will work...

When the AllowResize property is enabled, end-users can dynamically change the ASP.NET HTML Editor's size by using a size grip displayed at the bottom right corner. Resize limits can be defined via the MinHeight, MaxHeight, MinWidth and MaxWidth properties. The editor's actual size is preserved within the client state and is restored after an application round trip (postback or callback).

ASP.NET HTML Editor Resize Grip

Note that when the HTML Editor's size is less than the width of a toolbar, the contents of the toolbar are split across two (or more) rows.

Full-screen mode for the design view is fully supported by the DevExpress HTML Editor. To activate/deactivate this feature, your end-users will press a toolbar button (Fullscreen) or F11 when the editor has focus. When in full-screen mode, the ASPxHtmlEditor occupies the browser's entire client region.

GREAT news.  This is really one of the two major features that I'm missing and will indeed improve the control.   I hope you also get time to implement a proper image-browser dialog for images on the server?  Btw. any date on the vol 2 release?

Fantastic, This is a real issue when dealing with various screen resolutions. I also agree with Henrik, image browsing really needs to ba addressed.

Keep up the good work

This is great. Will you also provide it for other controls like ASPxMemo? How will this work in Chrome because it already has similar feature and allow to resize TEXTAREA elements?

I can see a lot of applications for that. Great feature.

I also believe an image browser (as Henrik has mentioned) would be very helpful.

This will not be useful.  More time should be spent on adding new features to more important controls (i.e. XtraCharts or ASPxGridView).

I agree with the above request for Image Browser on the server.

This is nice too as well. Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback :)

Image browser dialog is also one of the features we're planning to implement in the 10.2 release. It isn't ready yet, but we'll let you know as soon as it is ready.

As for the date of 10.2 release, as it is stated in "The Developer Express 2010 Roadmap" (www.devexpress.com/.../roadmap-2010.xml), 10.2 is planned to be released at the beginning of quarter 4.

No, we aren't planning to provide the same functionality for other controls in the 10.2 release - it isn't so actual as for the ASPxHtmlEditor. However, please feel free to create a request for this functionality in our support center.

As for the Chrome browser - ASPxHtmlEditor doesn't contain any TEXTAREA elements, so this feature will work in Chrome as well as in other browsers.
