Content Element Filtering

The ASPxHtmlEditor provides you with the ability to automatically filter content elements. You can specify filter rules for the following elements: tags, attributes, and style attributes.

For every element type, the ASPxHtmlEditor control provides a property listing filtered elements and a property specifying the filter mode.

The filter mode properties can be set to one of the following values.

  • WhiteList - the specified elements are allowed and will be maintained; other elements will be removed.
  • BlackList - the specified elements are prohibited and will be removed; other elements will be maintained.

Expanded Example

This code sample demonstrates how to specify the following content element filtering settings.

  • All cellspacing and cellpadding attributes should be removed from the editor content.
  • All tags with the exception of specified ones (a, p, span, img, ul, li, table, tr, td) should be removed from the editor content.
