    I am using DNN version 9.10.02. I am using the texteditor control

    <dnn:texteditor id="txtContent" name="txtContent" runat="server" height="400" width="100%">

    and I want to set the value for this control. I tried to insert a value using JQuery's val() and text() functions, but both of them didn't work. I am able to get the text inside the texteditor using these two functions, but not able to set values using them.

      Try the following:


      <dnn:textEditor id="txtContent" runat="server" height="400" width="100%" ChooseMode="false"></dnn:textEditor>


      txtContent.Text = "Hello world!"

      You might want to have a look at the HtmlText module's markup and code as an example.

      Happy DNNing!
