As a string

The HTML element tag can be given as a string for the template property. Here, the input is rendered as an HTML template.

As a template

You can render other components inside In-place Editor using Vue template . Follow the below guildlines for using other the components as template in In-place Editor.

Declare a template in the template section of the “.vue” file. An empty object “data” needs to be initialized in the data option of the default export object in script section.

The template function needs to be assigned to the template property of the EJ2 Vue In-place Editor Component.

Template mode, the value property not handled by the In-place Editor component. So, before sending a value to the server, you need to modify at actionBegin event, otherwise, an empty string will pass. In the following template sample, before submitting a data to the server, event argument and value property content updated in the actionBegin event handler.
