Hide RadEditor Tooltip when ContentAreaMode is Div


  • How do we prevent the tooltip from appearing in the RadEditor?
  • Hide RadEditor Tooltip when ContentAreaMode is Div
  • Hide the tooltip which displays RadEditor client ID?


The content area tooltip is enabled by default for the screen readers. The same title attribute is also applied to the iframe content area (ContentAreaMode="iframe"), but the browser does not display it because it's not a div but an iframe.

Content area tooltip of RadEditor


The solution is to get reference to the DIV content area element and remove its title attribute:

<telerik:RadEditor ID="RadEditor1" runat="server" ContentAreaMode="Div"
<script type="text/javascript">
    function editorLoad(editor) {
        var contentAreaEl = editor.get_contentAreaElement();
