I'm trying to use the default rich text editor in the sharepoint 2010 ribbon to edit a text area I have placed inside a custom visual web part (created in visual studio 2012). I have tried using :
<SharePoint:InputFormTextBox TextMode="MultiLine" RichText="true" RichTextMode="FullHtml" runat="server" Rows="6" MaxLength="1530" ID="myRichText1" />
But this creates the old style 2007 ribbon above each text area. Is there any way that this text area can be modified by the ribbon so that we can use bold/underline/image/etc?
Thanks for any help in advance
