The ASPxHtmlEditor control provides three view modes.

  • Design view allows end-users to modify the editor content using various design tools (such as toolbars and context menu), and instantly see the results.
  • Html view allows end-users to modify the editor content using HTML markup.
  • Preview allows end-users to view the editor content as a regular webpage.

The active view can be specified using the ASPxHtmlEditor.ActiveView property.

ASPxHtmlEditor allows you to programmatically access the HTML content both on the client and server sides. To learn more, see the Get and Set HTML section.
