Hey all,

I would like to know what kind of interest is out there for creating a provider for the new rich text editor that ComponentArt is going to release.  Has anyone seen this and have any feedback? Would the ability to easily plug this into our DotNetNuke sites be valuable? Personally, I'm thinking about starting in on this project and would also like to know if anyone else out there has already started.

here are the links for more information/demos:

I have not seen this before, but I did like what I saw in the links that you provided.  Really seems like a nice use of ajax for an editor.  I did some googling and didn't find any much about using the componentart editor with DNN.  I did see a few things on using componentart products with DNN. I'm interested in starting, at least with the editor.

On second look, it's missing image/document upload capability -- is that one of the things to look at adding into it?  Also table manipulation is a little missing.  On the plus side, numbering and bulleting appears to be a little more sophisticated than current FCKeditor...and I wouldn't have to explain what FCK to's not what they think.

While it's appearence is nice it seems to be missing many of the higher end abilities that the Cute editor from Cutesoft or the RAD editor from Telerik both have.

Quite cool looking and clearly slick, but I still find image management to be the biggest failing with all of these editors. Images are such a significant part of content publishing, yet year after year it is an aspect that is completely ignored by the developers. They all process text perfectly well, and really, I'm completely unconvinced that cross browser consistency of the code-behind and this or that standards compliance is of any relevance to content creators. I certainly have yet to meet anyone who would care.

If they added image processing to their strategic plan then I'll definitely cheer for it - much like I cheered for FCK back in the days too.

I may however have missed further benefits of the product?

For a 1st version editor, it is quite good (especially considering where Telerik was in their 1st version).

As far as some missing functions when compared to the RADEditor, I believe CA will provide these and more as they mature their editor prioduct over time.
