Update value in Vue Rich text editor component

16 Mar 20234 minutes to read

To achieve this, we need to bind the keydown event to the Rich Text Editor content and capture the ctrl + s key press using its keyCode.
In the keydown event handler, the updateValue method is called to update the value property and then we can save the content in the required database using the same.

<div class="control-section">
    <div class="sample-container">
        <div class="default-section">
        <ejs-richtexteditor ref="rteObj" :toolbarSettings="toolbarSettings" :created="onCreate"><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>
            <li><p>Provides IFRAME and DIV modes</p></li>
            <li><p>Capable of handling markdown editing.</p></li>
            <li><p>Contains a modular library to load the necessary functionality on demand.</p></li>
            <li><p>Provides a fully customizable toolbar.</p></li>
