Configuration for RichTextEditor can be set in the client side in conjunction with server side settings. The client-side settings are collected in a javascript file (richtexteditor\scripts\config.js). Unlike server side settings change configuration specifically for that instance of the Editor, the client-side settings will apply all instances of your editor objects.

A client side configuration file example:

// this file stores the default settings for RichTextEditor
// some settings are overrided by server settings
window.RTE_Configuration =
{
      version          :    "2012-08-20-A",
      skin             :    "office2007blue",//sets the skin for how the toolbar is draw

}

Modifying the configuration using server side method:

The modifying in the client side configuration file will apply all instances of your editor objects. However when you upgrade your RTE with newer versions, this file may be overwritten. To avoid losting the changes, we suggest you use the following server side method (Editor1.SetConfig) overwrite the setting.

Editor1.SetConfig("skin","office2010blue");
Editor1.SetConfig("showrulers",true);
Editor1.SetConfig("showbottombar",false);

Modifying the configuration using client side method:

It is also very easy to overwrite the configuration using client side method.

<script type='text/javascript'>
function RichTextEditor_OnLoader(loader)
{
	var config=loader._config;
	config.showrulers=true; //Shows horizontal and vertical rulers.
	config.showbottombar=false;//Shows the editor bottom bar.
	config.skin="office2010blue";//Sets the skin.
}
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
function RichTextEditor_OnLoad(editor)
{
    editor.SetWidth(1000); //Sets the width.
    editor.SetHeight(500); //Sets the height.
}
</script>
