Dialog in React Document editor component

1 Dec 202322 minutes to read

Document Editor provides dialog support to major operations such as insert or edit hyperlink, formatting text, paragraph, style, list and table properties.

Font Dialog

Font dialog allows you to modify all text properties for selected contents at once such as bold, italic, underline, font size, font color, strikethrough, subscript and superscript.

Document Editor features are segregated into individual feature-wise modules. To use font Dialog, inject ‘FontDialog’ module using the ‘DocumentEditor.Inject(Selection, SfdtExport, Editor, FontDialog)’.
To enable font dialog for a document editor instance, set ‘enableFontDialog’ to true.

Refer to the following example.

import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import * as React from 'react';
import { DocumentEditorComponent, SfdtExport, Selection, Editor, FontDialog } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-documenteditor';
DocumentEditorComponent.Inject(SfdtExport, Selection, Editor, FontDialog);
let documenteditor;
function App() {
    return (<div>
      <button onClick={showFontDialog}>Dialog</button>
      <DocumentEditorComponent id="container" height={'330px'} ref={(scope) => { documenteditor = scope; }} isReadOnly={false} enableSelection={true} enableEditor={true} enableSfdtExport={true} enableFontDialog={true}/>
    </div>);
    function showFontDialog() {
        //Open font dialog.
        documenteditor.showDialog('Font');
    }
}
export default App;
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('sample'));
import * as ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import * as React from 'react';
import { DocumentEditorComponent, SfdtExport, Selection, Editor, FontDialog } from '@syncfusion/ej2-react-documenteditor';

DocumentEditorComponent.Inject(SfdtExport, Selection, Editor, FontDialog);
let documenteditor: DocumentEditorComponent;
function App() {
  return (
    <div>
      <button onClick={showFontDialog}>Dialog</button>
      <DocumentEditorComponent id="container" height={'330px'} ref={(scope) => { documenteditor = scope; }} isReadOnly={false} enableSelection={true} enableEditor={true} enableSfdtExport={true} enableFontDialog={true} />
    </div>
  );
  function showFontDialog() {
    //Open font dialog.
    documenteditor.showDialog('Font');
  }
}
export default App
ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('sample'));
