public HtmlEditorView ActiveView { get; set; }
Public Property ActiveView As HtmlEditorView

Property Value

Type Default Description


One of the HtmlEditorView enumeration values.


The ASPxHtmlEditor allows end users to select the active view with a mouse click. The control also provides the capability to select the active view type in code. You can use the ActiveView property for this purpose.

Note that the ASPxHtmlEditor always has the active view, and only a single view can be active in the control at the same time.


You can change the ActiveView property value on a postback, or on a callback sent for a view markup (e.g., when changing a view). Other callbacks cannot be used for changing an active tab.
