Please add OnValueChanged to RadEditor
I know that there are articles that describe how to detect that the user has interacted with the RadEditor, but checking whether the content has changed is quite another task.
I understand that the underlying storage method makes it almost impossible to compare, but that's why we need the control to do this internally.
Even if we fall short of comparing the content, at least build-in the workarounds into the control to invoke a single "Changing" event.

Hi Haydn,

Thank you for your really useful feature request.

The problem is that RadEditor is not a TextBox and the HTML gets changed a lot by RadEditor's and browsers filters during validation especially if the source is mangled, not well-formed, and with missing closing tags. All of this prevents us to provide this functionality.
