Problem with Editor

Hi,

Using these

    <script type="text/javascript" src="<%= ResolveUrl("~/content/javascript/ckeditor/ckeditor.js") %>"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="<%= ResolveUrl("~/content/javascript/ckeditor/adapters/jquery.js") %>"></script>
    <textarea id="ta1" name="MyEA" runat="server" ></textarea>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        CKEDITOR.replace('<%=ta1.ClientID.Replace("_","$") %>', { toolbar: 'Mybar' });
    </script>
    ...
cmd.Parameters.Add("@ite_desc", SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = ta1.InnerHtml;
...

Open in new window

I get this error

Server Error in '/App7' Application.

A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (ta1="<p>I want to rent th...").

Description: ASP.NET has detected data in the request that is potentially dangerous because it might include HTML markup or script. The data might represent an attempt to compromise the security of your application, such as a cross-site scripting attack. If this type of input is appropriate in your application, you can include code in a web page to explicitly allow it. For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=212874.

@ite_desc I think this might be the problem, but if you want to disable security validation on the page or globally (dangerous) follow the steps @ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh882339.aspx

try putting the following in your web.config file

<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />

just make sure you check your data before saving anything to your database!
