We are happy to announce the release of yet another official CKEditor integration, this time for ASP.NET. The CKEditor for ASP.NET Control makes integrating the most popular online WYSIWYG editor in the world with ASP.NET applications easier than ever before.

ASP.NET Support

Since its initial release in 2002 the ASP.NET web application framework has gained a lot of support among the developers. ASP.NET integration was already available for the predecessor of CKEditor, the acclaimed FCKeditor, and we are now proud to present the complete rewrite of this feature that is compatible with .NET Framework 2.0+.

CKEditor for ASP.NET - sample pageCKEditor for ASP.NET means:

  • Full support for Microsoft Ajax environment.
  • Straightforward configuration and customization.
  • Ready-made samples that work out of the box.
  • Clear and simple documentation.

Using CKEditor for ASP.NET

Adding a CKEditor instance to your ASP.NET application has never been easier. After you download the control, almost all you need to do is add it to your page using the code like the one below:

<CKEditor:CKEditorControl ID="CKEditor1" runat="server">

Complete step-by-step integration instructions are available in the documentation.

    Hola, está muy bacano el CKEditor, pero quería saber como se integra este con el CKFinder, para que puedan subir imagenes al servidor, al sitio y seleccionar imagenes. Muchas Gracias

    • Our guides on how to integrate CKFinder with CKEditor are located here. You will have to pick your CKFinder version and click on "CKEditor Integration". Sorry, no guides in Spanish. CKFinder needs a license. It's not Open Source.

    I've found a bug:

    The BasePath property of CKEditorControl doesn't support "auto-scheme" urls.

    When we're using both Http and Https, to avoid security alerts from browser we can use a no-scheme url. I.E: - using HTTP - using HTTPS

    // - using HTTP or HTTPS according to browsers curent scheme ("auto-scheme")

    The last option, //www.domain[...] will add the url again when render the page. With our current version is rendering  //

    Actually, there is no special ASP.NET control needed to use CKEditor with ASP.NET. One only needs to add the CKEditor.js to the head section and give a multiline textbox the class CKEditor:

    <head runat="server">
        <title>ckeditor test page</title>
        <script src="ckeditor/ckeditor.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


    <asp:TextBox  class="ckeditor" ID="CkeditorTextBox" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Columns="80" Rows="10">


    The edited text can be easily read in the C# code like this:
