Overriding XHtmlString Output


Hi all,

We have a requirement that when an editor inserts a link to a document from within the TinyMCE editor, when the content is rendered we need to override how the link to the document is shown - specifically, we need to insert the file size next to the link, so it would look something like:

lorem ipsum Open Document (34kb) lorum ipseum etc etc.

I could create a UIHint, get a handle on the value (i.e. the content the editor has input) and then search the HTML for a link. Outside of EPiServer I'd probably use the HTML agility pack, but I know EPiServer has built in string parsing capabilities - deos anyone have any thoughts?

thanks in advance guys

Hey Alf,

That's my approach - a custom renderer and then decorate the property with the UIHint attribute.

What I was actually looking for is any help around parsing the string itself - I know there is built-in string parsing in EPiServer so wondered if there is any way of parsing the XHhtml and detecting a link? Any thoughts?

Thanks again
