moving from FckEditor to AjaxControlToolKit HTMLEditor one big question

moving from FckEditor to AjaxControlToolKit HTMLEditor one big question

moving from FckEditor to AjaxControlToolKit HTMLEditor one big question

I have this setup right now using the FckEditorV2 (all inherited code and I know classic asp, learning ASP.Net)

in my .aspx file


<fck:FCKeditor runat="server" ID="txtComments" Width="98%" ToolbarSet="Basic" Visible="false"/> 

replaced with


<ajaxEdit:Editor runat="server" ID="txtComments" AutoFocus="false" /> 

not a problem and the assembly is included at the top of the page, the problem is here in my aspx.cs file


/// <summary>
    /// Determines if any of the elements of dv are still in draft mode, if so then assigns it 
    /// to the past in text box and assigns that records id to the accompaning hident filed
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="dv">Dataview containint multilpw rows with 2 fields beint "UserText" and "IssueTextID"</param>
    /// <param name="txtField">Text box control that is to have text displayed in it if determined a draft mode item</param>
    /// <param name="hidField">will contain the data identifying row found from "IssueTextID"</param>
    private void setTextBoxes(DataView dv, FCKeditor txtField, HiddenField hidField)
        if (dv != null)
            foreach (DataRowView drv in dv)
                if ((drv["Active"].ToString() == "0") &&
                     (drv["LastUpdatedBy"].ToString() == servInfo.userInfo.ID))
                    txtField.Value = drv["UserText"].ToString();
                    hidField.Value = drv["IssueTextID"].ToString();

which is called via


dv = issue.getDataGrid(IssueText.ActionTypesV2.WORKLOG);
                if (!issue.isActive())
                    setTextBoxes(dv, txtComments, hidCommentsText);

How do I get the call FCKeditor txtField in setTextBoxes to use the text box control associated with the ajaxcontroltoolkit HTML Editor rather than the fckEditor? I tried HTMLEditor and anything starting with ajax instead of FCKEditor and none of them seemed to work. Do you need to see more of the code, what am I missing here?
