# DomComponents

With this module is possible to manage components inside the canvas. You can customize the initial state of the module from the editor initialization, by passing the following Configuration Object

const editor = grapesjs.init({
 domComponents: {
   // options

Once the editor is instantiated you can use its API. Before using these methods you should get the module from the instance

const domComponents = editor.DomComponents;

# load

Load components from the passed object, if the object is empty will try to fetch them autonomously from the selected storage The fetched data will be added to the collection

# Parameters

  • data Object Object of data to load (optional, default '')

Returns Object Loaded data

# store

Store components on the selected storage

# Parameters

Returns Object Data to store

# getWrapper

Returns root component inside the canvas. Something like <body> inside HTML page The wrapper doesn't differ from the original Component Model

# Examples

// Change background of the wrapper and set some attribute
var wrapper = domComponents.getWrapper();
wrapper.set('style', {'background-color': 'red'});
wrapper.set('attributes', {'title': 'Hello!'});

Returns Component Root Component

# getComponents

Returns wrapper's children collection. Once you have the collection you can add other Components(Models) inside. Each component can have several nested components inside and you can nest them as more as you wish.

# Examples

// Let's add some component
var wrapperChildren = domComponents.getComponents();
var comp1 = wrapperChildren.add({
  style: { 'background-color': 'red'}
var comp2 = wrapperChildren.add({
  tagName: 'span',
  attributes: { title: 'Hello!'}
// Now let's add an other one inside first component
// First we have to get the collection inside. Each
// component has 'components' property
var comp1Children = comp1.get('components');
// Procede as before. You could also add multiple objects
  { style: { 'background-color': 'blue'}},
  { style: { height: '100px', width: '100px'}}
// Remove comp2

Returns Components Collection of components

# addComponent

Add new components to the wrapper's children. It's the same as 'domComponents.getComponents().add(...)'

# Parameters

    • component.type string Type of the component. Available: ''(default), 'text', 'image' (optional, default '')
