    Hi. I'm trying to find a FREE (and good) RichText Textbox control for
    ASP.NET. It's for a nonprofit site so I literally can't spend any money to
    obtain one. I have tried the found and tried the following but they both had
    serious limitations and won't work. Anyone know of any others???? Thanks.

    - Codeplex RTF Control ( Required a good
    knowledge of javascript to perform basic functions.

    - Freetextbox ( Too buggy.

    You generally get what you pay for - except when you're a non profit --
    sometimes companies will cut you a great deal.

    I don't know if this company will give you a break, but CuteEditor is a very
    powerful and highly configurable editor:

    Right now I am looking into oboutSuite. It is free and has editor and spell
    checker. Haven't done alot with it but samples look good.

  9. I think you misread the obout site, I believe only a few of their products
    are free such as the show and flyout components. The editor is not according
    to That said, their suite is very
    reasonably priced.

    Hope this helps,

    Try XStandard ( It's a browser plug-in so
    has to be downloaded before use, but this is painless. It's easy to
    implement, generates valid XHTML and uses web services to upload
    files / images and do spell checking. Content editing aspect is free,
    but using the web services requires a licence (for XStandard Pro).

    I read these about them working fine, but is anyone actually using any
    of them in an update panel. I'm seeing that they all break once that
    level of complexity is added.
