The HTML View allows end-users to modify editor content using HTML markup. HTML View Area availability is controlled by the ASPxHtmlEditorSettings.AllowHtmlView property.

The Context Menu, search panel, find and replace dialoges are all available in the HTML view.

You can customize the HTML view functionality using settings provided by the ASPxHtmlEditorSettings.SettingsHtmlView property.

Expanded Simple mode

An HTML Editor can display HTML code as a plain text. In this case, the properties provided by the ASPxHtmlEditorSettings.SettingsHtmlView property are not in effect; the search panel, find and replace dialoges, and Context Menu are unavailable. To enable this mode, set the HtmlEditorHtmlViewSettings.Mode property value to Simple.
