The tools order can be customized as our application requirement. If you are not specifying any tools order, the editor will create the toolbar with default items.

Custom tool

The Rich Text Editor allows you to configure your own commands to its toolbar using the toolbarSettings property. The command can be plain text, icon, or HTML template. The order and the group can also be defined where the command should be included. Bind action to the command by getting its instance.

This sample shows how to add your own commands to the toolbar of the Rich Text Editor. The “Ω” command is added to insert special characters in the editor. By clicking the “Ω” command, it will show the special characters list, and then choose the character to be inserted in the editor.

The following code snippet illustrates custom tool with tooltip text which will be included in items field of the toolbarSettings property.

To get start quickly with Custom tool configuration in Angular Rich Text Editor component, refer to the video below.

In the following sample the Dialog component will be created in Rich Text Editor’s created event. And it’s target is given to Rich Text Editor’s content

Quick inline toolbar

Quick commands are opened as context-menu on clicking the corresponding element. The commands must be passed as string collection to image, text, and link attributes of the quickToolbarSettings property.

Target Element Default Quick Toolbar items
image ‘Replace’, ‘Align’, ‘Caption’, ‘Remove’, ‘InsertLink’, ‘Display’, ‘AltText’,‘Dimension’.
link ‘Open’, ‘Edit’, ‘UnLink’.
text (Deprecated) ‘Cut’, ‘Copy’, ‘Paste’.
table ‘tableHeader’, ‘tableRows’, ‘tableColumns’, ‘backgroundColor’, ’-’, ‘tableRemove’, ‘alignments’, ‘tableCellVerticalAlign’, ‘styles’.

Custom tool can be added to the corresponding quick toolbar, using quickToolbarSettings property.

The following sample demonstrates the option to insert the image to the Rich Text Editor content as well as option to rotate the image through the quick toolbar. The image rotation functionalities have been achieved through the toolbarClick event.
