This example shows integration of RadTreeView and RadEditor. You can drag and drop images from RadTreeview into RadEditor. This can be easily achieved by handling the following events client-side:

  • OnClientNodeDragStart - Create and display an overlay to prevent the editor content area from capturing mouse events
  • OnClientNodeDragging - Change the cursor's visual appearance according to its position its toolbar will appear docked at the top of the page
  • OnClientNodeDropping - Paste the image into the RadEditor and remove the overlay
