Inline Editor Value Is Not Posted to the Server


Product Progress® Kendo UI® Editor for jQuery
Operating System Windows 10 64bit


The inline jQuery Editor value is not posted to the server.


Because the inline Editor is initialized from a non-form element, it is not posted to the server by design.


To submit the value of the Editor along with the form, use the approach demonstrated in the following example.

  <div id="comment" contentEditable></div>

  <button class="k-button">Submit</button>

  $("form").on("submit", function() {
    var form = $(this);

    // For each Editor in the form...
    form.find("[data-role=editor]").each(function() {
      var editor = $(this).data("kendoEditor");

      // ... append a hidden input that holds the Editor value.
      $("<input type='hidden' />")
        .attr("name", editor.element.attr("id"))
