How to get the value of dotnetnuke rich text editor in code behind or dnn:TextEditor unable to get the value in codebehind or how to get value of dnn:TextEditor in dnn web application project

Well readers,
I got another solution today, and the major credit goes to one of my colleague Mr. Furqan Idress he really give me a solid clue to get rid of this issue

I faced the problem that i wasn't able to get the dnn:TextEditor value in my code behind variable, i have spend arround 3 hours and i just found the garbage and nothing

here is the solution may be you got my blog post and save your time in first attempt

if you need to add the DNN Rich text editor or DNN text editor in your web application  then use this code


<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="TextEditor" Src="~/controls/TextEditor.ascx"%>

the above code display the test editor in your module 

now you need to change the designer.cs file there are 3 files in your  web application project one is pageName.ascx, second one is  pageName.ascx.cs and last one is pageName.ascx.designer.cs 

You need to open the third file with the extension .designer.cs  identify you controller under the designer.cs file i have given the id of my text editor to text3, so i identify first where is the text3 and then change the reference

Existing Reference 
protected global::System.Web.UI.UserControl text3;
Note : here text3 is my dnn text editor control 

Updated Reference or you need to replay the existing reference with 
  protected global::DotNetNuke.UI.UserControls.TextEditor text3;
Note : here text3 is my dnn text editor control 

Now its time to collect the value in the code behind 
come in your .cs file and use this property 
variableName = text3.RichText.Text

Congratulation! you got your value in your variable 

Summary 
there are total three steps 
Step 1 (Use in your design page) 
<%@ Register TagPrefix="dnn" TagName="TextEditor" Src="~/controls/TextEditor.ascx"%>
Use the control where you need to display the text editor
<dnn:TextEditor ID="text3" runat="server" Height="200" Width="500" />

Step 2 (Update your designer file) 
Replace this » protected global::System.Web.UI.UserControl text3; 
with this » protected global::DotNetNuke.UI.UserControls.TextEditor text3;

Step 3 (Get text editor value in code behind) 
variableName = text3.RichText.Text

Hope it will work for you like me and save your time

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed

Dear Readers
if you get the error

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed


Here is the solution 
Get a command prompt in administrator mode and go to C:\Windows\Microsoft .NET\FrameWork64\v4.xxx
and run aspnet_regiis -r. This will re-register the right libraries. It has happened twice already to me.
For other frameworks (32 bit or other versions of .net make sure you go to the correct folder (i.e. Framework/v2.xxx, etc.)

xxxx is the the number which is present with the folder name so i suggest you guys to check the folder name in your directory

If "run aspnet_regiis -r" is not working and if you get the error run is not recognized command then just type " aspnet_regiis -r" it will run fine

Reason of problem
Your asp.net frame work has been change may be you have install the lower version on the higher version or may be because of any reason you have register another version in your IIS, in my cas…
