We would like to announce the release of CKEditor for ASP.NET 3.5.3, the latest version of the official CKEditor integration for the .NET environment. This is a maintenance release that updates CKEditor to version 3.5.3 and fixes a couple of issues that occurred in the previous version of the CKEditor .NET control.

CKEditor Updated to Version 3.5.3

The latest CKEditor release in itself brings numerous improvements and a few new features, such as an important workaround for a nasty WebKit bug that prevented styling of empty elements in Safari and Chrome. Note that CKEditor 3.5.3 is now fully compatible with the final release versions of both Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9.

CKEditor for ASP.NET Control Changes

In the new version of the ASP.NET control the compatibility with Microsoft Ajax library was improved, including better support for MultiView controls. It is now also possible to set the CKEditor control configuration options inside the master page. A few improvements in the entities support fix the problem with missing HTML encoding for the WYSIWYG mode. The configuration options that were not correctly escaped (like the toolbar settings) can now be properly set. Last but not least, this release fixes a couple of issues with toggling the visible status of the editor.

    setData method doesn't work.

  2. Could you possibly use our Development site to file a ticket and give more details about what exactly does not work, with some sample code etc.? This should make it easier to track the problem. Thanks!

    You can either discuss it on the community forum (search whether previous reports on this issue already exist first) or if you feel that you found a bug, file a ticket on the Development site. Thanks!

    By the way, there is also the new version of the CKEditor ASP.NET control available. You may want to upgrade first to see whether the problem persists.

    I recently deployed the project on Client's machine, wh only had .Net framework installed, and not the complete Visual Studio, when he ran the site the CKEDITOR did not load and instead only simple textbox got displayed. After doing lot of R&D i noticed that it worked fine on my machine as i had VS installed but on machines where only framework is installed its not loading correctly.

    Can someone pleaseeeeee tell me what i can do to get it working....

  8. Blog comments are definitely *not* the best place to seek support. Use the community forum for that, please.
