Inserting new tables with a header row as default


Insert new tables with a header row as default via the Insert Table dropdown or TableWizard dialog of RadEditor


To implement this accessibility feature attach to the OnClientPasteHtml event, which will allow to catch and modify the inserted content via the InsertTable and TableWizard tools of RadEditor. Here is an example:

<telerik:radeditor runat="server" OnClientPasteHtml="OnClientPasteHtml" ID="RadEditor1">  
    <ImageManager ViewPaths="~/Images" UploadPaths="~/Images" />  

<script type="text/javascript">  
function OnClientPasteHtml(sender, args) {   
  var commandName = args.get_commandName();   
  var value = args.get_value();   

  if (commandName == "InsertTable" || commandName == "TableWizard")  
    var tempDiv = document.createElement("DIV");   
    value = value.trim();   
    Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.Utils.setElementInnerHtml(tempDiv, value);   
    var table = tempDiv.firstChild;   
    // Set css class on alternate rows   
    for (var i = 0; i < table.rows.length; i++) {   
      if ((i % 2) == 0) {   
      else {   
    // Insert THEAD into table   
    var colCount = table.rows[0].cells.length;   
    var newTHead = table.createTHead();   
    var newRow = newTHead.insertRow(-1);   
    for (var j = 0; j < colCount; j++) {   
      var newTh = document.createElement("TH");
