Capture ctrl+s to update the value

17 Feb 20223 minutes to read

To achieve this, we need to bind the keydown event to the Rich Text Editor content and capture the ctrl + s key press using its keyCode.
In the keydown event handler, the updateValue method is called to update the value property and then we can save the content in the required database using the same.

                e.preventDefault(); // to prevent default ctrl+s action
                rteObj.updateValue(); // to update the value after editing
                var value = rteObj.value; // you can get the Rich Text Editor content to save in the desired database
