Document and Operation Restrictions

The ASPxRichEdit control allows you to restrict certain document operations (such as open/save or copy/paste) and document format capabilities (such as character or paragraph formatting) to protect your documents.

Restrict Operations

Use the members accessible via the ASPxRichEdit.Settings.Behavior property to disable or hide specific Rich Text Editor operations.

<dx:ASPxRichEdit ID="richEdit" runat="server" Width="100%">
    <Settings>
        <Behavior CreateNew="Hidden" SaveAs="Disabled" />
    </Settings>
</dx:ASPxRichEdit>

Restrict Document Format Capabilities

Use the members accessible via the ASPxRichEdit.Settings.DocumentCapabilities property to disable or hide specific Rich Text Editor document format capabilities (such as character/paragraph format, hyperlinks, and section).

<dx:ASPxRichEdit ID="richEdit" runat="server" Width="100%">
    <Settings>
        <DocumentCapabilities Bookmarks="Disabled" Hyperlinks="Disabled" ParagraphStyle="Hidden" />
    </Settings>
</dx:ASPxRichEdit>

Disable Context Menu

Handle the PopupMenuShowing event and set the cancel property to true to prevent the context menu.

<dx:ASPxRichEdit ID="richEdit" runat="server" Width="100%" ActiveTabIndex="0">
    <ClientSideEvents PopupMenuShowing="function(s, e) {e.cancel = true;}" />
</dx:ASPxRichEdit>
