Telerik Web UI Editor CommandList CommandName is null


Error: Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList["CommandName"] is null


If RadEditor is initially hidden and then displyed using AJAX the client Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList object will be not recognized and the following error will be thrown "Telerik Web UI Editor CommandList is null".

The browser reports an error at the Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList["Save"] line:

<telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">  
<script type="text/javascript">  
    Telerik.Web.UI.Editor.CommandList["Save"] = function(commandName, editor, args)  
        $find("<%= RadAjaxManager.GetCurrent(Page).ClientID %>").ajaxRequest("save");  


The problem occurs when the RadEditor container to the page is loaded using AJAX. This is a well known limitation of the MS AJAX that will not parse
