        </div>";
    return View();
}

Initialize from <iframe> element

Initialize the RichTextEditor on div element as shown below and set the enable field of iframeSettings property as true to render the RichTextEditor content in an iframe and its isolated from the rest of the page.

razor
iframe.cs
@Html.EJS().RichTextEditor("iframe").Value((string)ViewBag.value).IframeSettings(iframeSettings => iframeSettings.Enable(true)).Render()
public IActionResult Iframe()
{
    ViewBag.value = @"<p>The rich text editor component is WYSIWYG ('what you see is what you get') editor that provides the best user experience to create and update the content. 
                        Users can format their content using standard toolbar commands.</p>

razor
toolbar.cs
@Html.EJS().RichTextEditor("image").ToolbarSettings(e=>e.Items((object)ViewBag.tools)).Value((string)ViewBag.value).Render()
public IActionResult Toolbar()
{
    ViewBag.tools = new[] { 
        "Bold", "Italic", "Underline", "StrikeThrough",
        "FontName", "FontSize", "FontColor", "BackgroundColor",
        "LowerCase", "UpperCase", "|",

@Html.EJS().RichTextEditor("image").ToolbarSettings(e=>e.Items((object)ViewBag.tools)).Value((string)ViewBag.value).QuickToolbarSettings(e => { e.Image((object)ViewBag.image); }).Render()
public IActionResult Image()

    return View();
}

Retrieve the formatted content

To retrieve the editor contents, use value property of RichTextEditor.

    var rteValue = this.rteObj.value;

Or, you can use the public method, getContent to retrieve the RTE content.

  var rteValue = this.rteObj.getContent();

To fetch the RichTextEditor’s text content, use textContent property of RTE EditPanel.

  var rteValue = this.rteObj.contentModule.getEditPanel().textContent;

The final output will be displayed as follows

razor
link.cs
@Html.EJS().RichTextEditor("image").ToolbarSettings(e=>e.Items((object)ViewBag.tools)).Value((string)ViewBag.value).QuickToolbarSettings(e => { e.Image((object)ViewBag.image).Link((object)ViewBag.link); }).Render()
public IActionResult Image()

        "Replace", "Align", "Caption", "Remove", "InsertLink", "OpenImageLink", "-",
        "EditImageLink", "RemoveImageLink", "Display", "AltText", "Dimension"
    };
    ViewBag.tools = new[] {

        "LowerCase", "UpperCase", "|",
        "Formats", "Alignments", "OrderedList", "UnorderedList",
        "Outdent", "Indent", "|",
        "CreateLink", "Image", "|", "ClearFormat", "Print",
