Saving Content of RichTextEditor in Edit Controller [HttpPost]

I am using @Html.Syncfusion().RichTextEditor("RTE").Text(Model.Definition).ShowHtmlSource(false).AllowEdit(true) in my View/Edit.cshtml and the data is displayed fine.
Then, I would like to save my changes.  I am having difficulty retrieve the "RTE" content in the Edit Controller [HttpPost] using the following:
public ActionResult Edit(int id, FormCollection formCollection, string[] selectedPulldownData)
In the debugger, I can see the formCollection["RTE"] value but is unable to retrieve the Rich Text Content.
Sorry if this is a simple question.  I am new at MVC/RAZOR/Syncfusion and in the process of trying to learn them all at the same time. Help!

Hi Marie,


Thanks for contacting Syncfusion forums.


We suggest you to use RichTextControl ‘s id in action arguments for retrieving the content of RTE. Please refer the below code snippet to achieve this,







        public ActionResult Edit(int id, string RTE, string[] selectedPulldownData)


            //RTE returns the content in RichTextEditor




Kindly try the above suggested solution and let us know if it helps.
