Seeking a decent drag and drop html editor for app
 
My company is developing a software app in ASP.net and as a part of it we want to give clients the ability to create landing pages using a drag and drop type of editor. We are looking for something similar to sites like leadpages.net. Basically you have a blank canvas and a toolbar, in that toolbar you have several things like text label, text box, buttons, image, etc. This will be for the purpose of allowing clients to drag and drop elements onto the page and create their own pages.

We are seeking something that works kind of like CkEditor. We have used it before, it works like any other control. When html needs to be saved you simply read the data from the control in your code behind and save the data to your database. So in a drag and drop editor we are looking for just about the same, but with drag and drop ability.

We understand that we will most likely not get something like this for free, so we are definitely open to commercial products. If anyone reading this has any experience working with something like this, please point me in the right direction. Thank you.

asp.net drag and drop, web parts, jquery
 
Just in case no one else posts any replies in this thread..

I had to be the one to point this out (since you say "We have used it before"),
but CkEditor is open source and has a github page.

Personally I have this page bookmarked for the "Source (Big Ní Slow)" link at the bottom.


If you read through this StackOverFlow page (which discusses using ASP.Net with WebParts in non-IE browsers), I agree with the quote on that page:
Quote:

I strongly recommend not to use asp.net ajax for this task..
Mainly because ASP.Net is a little behind what's going on in the javascript coding "space".

I've used JQuery with just about every drag-n-drop web "app" I've had to implement, because it's very robust cross-browser compatibility.

However that last link on that StackOverFlow page is probably your best starting point if you have to go with ASP.Net.
