About the HTML Editor

ASPxHtmlEditor is a powerful HTML Text Editor for ASP.NET. Regardless of the solution you need to build – be it a blog editor, an email client or a simple application for exchanging formatted documents within your company - you can drop the control onto a form and have instant access to a text editor with an intuitive user interface that resembles Microsoft® Word (with similar toolbars and keyboard shortcuts).

The following code demonstrates how to add an HTML editor to your project and populate it manually with the rich formatted text using the Html property.
