How to get value from the Frames?

I have pasted this editor in one of my addedit page. i need to take value from this editor and store it in the DB?

How to get value.

if i use document.frames[frameid].getvalue() it shows error?

any way to get value?

Could not load type 'FredCK.FCKeditorV2.FileBrowser.Config'.


This error occurs if the DLL file "FredCK.FCKeditorV2.dll" is not in the /bin/ folder of an ASP.Net project. 

The documentation is not exactly vague about this, but perhaps it's a bit too rambly for newbies (like myself -- it took me days to resolve this one issue.)

Could you perhaps tighten up the phrasing of the documentation in this section.  If I could make a suggestion for the documentation --->


Unpack the downloaded file. There you will find the original source code of the control and a compiled version of it. The file is called FredCK.FCKeditorV2.dll.  

You can find it in two catalogs:

bin/Release/1.1/ - the version designed for ASP.NET 1.1
bin/Release/2.0/ - the version designed for ASP.NET 2.0

  • You most probably will not need to make changes in the source, so just consider the compiled DLL file, and just create a reference to it in your project.
  • It's necessary to create a reference in your project to the file called FredCK.FCKeditorV2.dll'You have two options to do that:

1. Manually copy the FredCK.FCKeditorV2.dll file to the "bin" directory of your web site.   Then build your website.
2.  Right-click "References" in your Visual Studio.NET project in the "Solution Explorer". Use "Browse" to select the FredCK.FCKeditorV2.dll file from the directory you have saved it in.

404 and Resource issues under VisualStudio

In order to properly find the editor the following code must be executed

 FCKEditor1.BasePath = "~/fckeditor";

Assuming the use of a FCKEDITOR with the iD FCKEditor1 and the components are installed in the fckeditor directory off the root of the project.
