Modifying the RadEditor Image Manager Dialog in Sharepoint 2007

May 26, 2010

This one took a long time to figure out.  Almost all of the support available online refers to the generic ASP.NET AJAX version of RadEditor which comes with handy dialog editing files. The Sharepoint 2007 one, however, does not. Luckily, these files can be downloaded as part of a free trial and plug right in to RadEditor without a hitch (so far at least) and allow you to edit dialogs just like you would in the generic flavor. Here’s what to do:

  1. Download the free trial of RadEditor here: (this version should work with modern installations of RadEditor; if not, look around for other trial versions on that site.)
    I recommend the DLL, Scripts, and Skins Only file, as it’s small and contains little more than what you need for this.
    Update: Looks like that requires a login. won’t let me host a .zip file but it’s a free registration so trust me that it works — giving up a little information is the price you have to pay, I guess.
  2. After you unzip the download, copy the entire EditorDialogs folder to your wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\5.x.x.x__1f131a624888eeed\Resources\ folder.
  3. Open up ImageManager.ascx and mess around in there to your liking. To disable the Image Editor function, for example, search for the tag that contains Text="Image Editor" and add the parameter Visible="false" inside that tag. Do the same to make any button disappear from the Image Manager dialog.

That’s all there is to it! This forum posting helped me out a lot with this one after spending two days on Google trying to figure this one out.
