We use SharePoint:InputFormTextBox in our SP 2010 application. Now the requirement is to make it work in Google Chrome and Firefox also. But from what I read the SharePoint:InputFormTextBox control is only supported on IE.

Are there any alternative for SharePoint:InputFormTextBox which work on Google Chrome and Firefox?

To view the SharePoint:InputFormTextBox control in Firefox and Chrome browser may cause issues that make the control not render properly. This control works well only with IE browser. To overcome this, there is a JavaScript code snippet available as explained in this article:

SharePoint Rich Text Input Control

Put the code given in above article link in the html part of your page where you are using this InputFormTextBox control.


I have used this external (cross platform) content editor: http://nicedit.com/index.php and it worked perfectly for me.

And it looks like this:
