Toolbar in ASP.NET MVC RichTextEditor control

30 Jul 2021 / 10 minutes to read

The Rich Text Editor’s toolbar contains a collection of tools such as bold, italic and text alignment buttons that are used to format the content. However, in most integrations, it’s desirable to change the toolbar configuration to suit needs. Fortunately, that’s quite easy to do too.

To create Rich Text Editor with Markdown editing feature, it can be added by defining the Toolbar as a collection of built-in items.

The Rich Text Editor allows you to configure different types of toolbar using Type field in ToolbarSettings property. The types of toolbar are:

  1. Expand
  2. MultiRow

Expand Toolbar

The default mode of Type is Expand, it will hide the overflowing items in the next row. By clicking the expand arrow, view the overflowing toolbar items.

Custom Tool

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

This sample shows how to add your own commands to toolbar of the Rich Text Editor. The “Ω” command is added to insert special characters in the editor.

The below code snippet, for custom tool with tooltip text which will be included in Items field of ToolbarSettings property.

var tools = new {
    tooltipText = "Insert Symbol",
        template = "<button class='e-tbar-btn e-btn' tabindex='-1' id='custom_tbar'  style='width:100%'><div class='e-tbar-btn-text rtecustomtool' style='font-weight: 500;'> &#937;</div></button>"
};
ViewBag.items = new object[] { "Bold", "Italic", "Underline", "|", "Formats", "Alignments", "OrderedList",
    "UnorderedList", "|", "CreateLink", "Image", "|", "SourceCode", tools
    , "|", "Undo", "Redo"
};

Click the “Ω” command to show the special characters list, and then choose the character to be inserted in the editor.
