Hi,

Are there any plans to convert the .NET HTMLEditor component to VCL?
A true native HTML editor that preserves all formatting would be ideal. I'm currently stuck with using ProfDHTMLEdit but it hasn't been supported for years and I'm struggling to hack the source (which I have) to work with newer versions of IE and Windows.

Regards
Adam

Closest we have to this is TAdvRichEditor
http://www.tmssoftware.com/site/advricheditor.asp that can also read & write HTML files (limited HTML feature set though)
This is a fully native implementation that does not depend on installed IE engines.

Yes, I am aware of that component but I need to fully preserve HTML including CSS, inline styling, <head> <body> tags etc. How hard is it to port the .NET component to VCL?

Regards
Adam

Handling full CSS is currently not within the scope of TAdvRichEditor.
Porting an ASP.NET based editor to VCL is a non-trivial exercise. We are also not eager to implement a solution based on an ActiveX IE as that makes it completely dependent on the specific version installed on the operating system and the direction Microsoft is going with this.
