Using CKEditor for ASP.NET Samples

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2). For the latest documentation about current CKSource projects, including software like CKEditor 4/CKEditor 5, CKFinder 3, Cloud Services, Letters, Accessibility Checker, please visit the new documentation website.

If you look for an information about very old versions of CKEditor, FCKeditor and CKFinder check also the CKEditor forum, which was closed in 2015. If not, please head to StackOverflow for support.

The CKEditor for ASP.NET installation package comes with a few sample pages that can be used to try out the ASP.NET control. In order to view the working samples in your browser, proceed as follows (all instructions refer to Windows 7 and IIS, search the Internet for information on setting up other environments):

  1. Unpack the _Samples folder of the CKEditor for ASP.NET Control installation package to C:\inetpub\wwwroot. If you do not have this folder in your system, you need to install Internet Information Services first.
  2. Go to Control Panel –> System and Security –> Administrative Tools –> Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. Find the _Samples folder under the Default Web Site tree.
  3. Right-click the _Samples folder and select Convert to application.
  4. From the Browse Application menu on the right-hand side choose Browse *:80 (http).
  5. The application will open in your default Internet browser. You can now browse the samples to see the CKEditor for ASP.NET Control at work.

The samples included in the installation package show some typical use cases of CKEditor when inserted into ASP.NET pages as well as various configuration options. We recommend to refer to their source files in order to see the implementation details. They can also be useful in case of any issues you might have while integrating the CKEditor for ASP.NET Control with your own website.
