  1. Thank you, great post. I’ve tried this on a form and am curious how you can set this to be disabled via javascript. Using the standard setDisabled, the field shows a lock, but is editable and changes are saved. Any hints/insights would be appreciated! Thanks!


  2. I like the new RichText editor. Unfortunately the RichText formatting is gone when generating a Word document using a Word template. In the Word document the text of the RichText field appears but without any formatting. Images are gone completely.

  3. I am facing a weird issue with this control. I have couple of this same control in different tabs of a single custom entity form. The problem I have is, when I tried to disable all the fields in the form, the control still is enabled. It is not behaving same all the time. Sometime it works and when I toggle between the tabs it get enabled back. Do you face such issue with this control?


  4. I am using rich text editor control in one of my custom activities. It works great but when I view the data/column in a TImeline control or in a View, it shows HTML tags. How can I remove those HTML tags from View like OOTB Note Description field?
