Read-only Rich Text Editor

I've now got my Rich text Editor working correctly (thanks for your help!) but some screens shouldn't show a true editor but a read-only view of the information.
In "olden" VB.Net GUI days it would be simple - just stick a .ReadOnly = True in the startup of the page ... but this new fangled HTML stuff is a bit different :)

I've Googled and searched and can see how to do it in LS Silverlight I think but can't twig how to sort this out in LS HTML Could someone point me in the right direction please?

NB. I can see how to get rid of the toolbar etc. - all I need to do is to stop anyone typing anything in to the control itself

Thanks in advance!
Steve.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products,

We have analyzed your query (“all I need to do is to stop anyone typing anything in to the control itself”).We can achieve your requirement using our existing property of RTE allowEditing (Enables/Disables the editing of the content in rte.) .Please refer the below code snippet.

myapp.Browse.RTE_render = function (element, contentItem) {

var input = $("<textarea />");

input.attr('id','RTE');

input.attr("data-role","none");

input.appendTo($(element));

input.ejRTE({

value: contentItem.value,

change: function (args) {

contentItem.value = args.text;

}, allowEditing: false

});

};

To know more about available RTE properties, methods, events and its argument please refer the following link:

Thanks again for your help - this sorted my problem out. I hadn't managed to find the API info until you linked it (I'd used http://help.syncfusion.com/lightswitch instead as my main source of detail) - very useful :)
