This demo shows how close the interface and user experience in RadEditor are to those of MS Word.

The convenient ribbon bar (entirely customizable via the tools file definition) lets you use key features like:

  • text formatting (font, font size, bold, italic, text alignment, lists)
  • track changes and comments
  • file import and export
  • spell checking
  • inserting elements (images, tables, symbols, form elements)
  • DefaultVB.aspx
  • DefaultVB.aspx.vb
  • scripts.js
  • styles.css
  • word-like-tools.xml
