Format code block in Vue Rich text editor component

16 Mar 20233 minutes to read

You can configure code block formatting as a separate toolbar button by adding the InsertCode keyword within the toolbarSettings items property.

The InsertCode button has a toggle state to apply code block formatting to the editor and remove code block formatting from the editor.

The following sample demonstrates how to config the InsertCode button in toolbar and set the background color to “pre” tag for highlighting the code block.

<div class="control-section">
    <div class="sample-container">
        <div class="default-section">
        <ejs-richtexteditor ref="rteObj" :toolbarSettings="toolbarSettings"><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>
        <p><b>Key features:</b></p>
