Can you recommend a simple Rich text editor to fit into a GridView control?

Hi,

I have a GridView Which I need to enhance. Basically there is a "Description" field which is currently a "TextBox" in "Edit" mode. I need to replace this with a simple Rich text type editor control to enable simple formatting.... incidentally this will be HTML that will be written under the bonnet. I guess something like the control I am writting this in !!! Although an ASP.NET server control would be ideal.

Thanks,

Sam

Thanks for this, but this is more about tooltips and the RTE is a clientside control. I am looking for a serverside control.

Thanks

Hi,

I really need serverbased controls.... and have just found FreeTextBox which seems designed for the job.

OK folks.... I have thrown out FreeTextBox, because I was worried about disabling the page level XSS validation and have gone with CKEditor for ASP.NEt which seems very good. No need to disable page level validation.

I am using TinyMCE in another part of the app, but only as clientside code.... I may be replacing with CKE at this rate.

Thanks,

Sam
