# RichTextEditor

This module allows to customize the built-in toolbar of the Rich Text Editor and use commands from the HTML Editing APIs (opens new window). It's highly recommended to keep this toolbar as small as possible, especially from styling commands (eg. 'fontSize') and leave this task to the Style Manager

You can customize the initial state of the module from the editor initialization, by passing the following Configuration Object (opens new window)

const editor = grapesjs.init({
 richTextEditor: {
   // options
 }
})

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

// Listen to events
editor.on('rte:enable', () => { ... });

// Use the API
const rte = editor.RichTextEditor;
rte.add(...);

# Available Events

  • rte:enable - RTE enabled. The view, on which RTE is enabled, is passed as an argument
  • rte:disable - RTE disabled. The view, on which RTE is disabled, is passed as an argument

# Methods

# add

Add a new action to the built-in RTE toolbar

# Parameters

# Examples

rte.add('bold', {
  icon: '<b>B</b>',
  attributes: {title: 'Bold'},
  result: rte => rte.exec('bold')
});
rte.add('link', {
  icon: document.getElementById('t'),
  attributes: {title: 'Link',}
  // Example on it's easy to wrap a selected content
  result: rte => rte.insertHTML(`<a href="#">${rte.selection()}</a>`)
});
// An example with fontSize
rte.add('fontSize', {
  icon: `<select class="gjs-field">
        <option>1</option>
        <option>4</option>
        <option>7</option>
      </select>`,
    // Bind the 'result' on 'change' listener
  event: 'change',
  result: (rte, action) => rte.exec('fontSize', action.btn.firstChild.value),
  // Callback on any input change (mousedown, keydown, etc..)
  update: (rte, action) => {
    const value = rte.doc.queryCommandValue(action.name);
    if (value != 'false') { // value is a string
      action.btn.firstChild.value = value;
    }
   }
  })
// An example with state
const isValidAnchor = (rte) => {
  // a utility function to help determine if the selected is a valid anchor node
  const anchor = rte.selection().anchorNode;
  const parentNode  = anchor && anchor.parentNode;
  const nextSibling = anchor && anchor.nextSibling;
  return (parentNode && parentNode.nodeName == 'A') || (nextSibling && nextSibling.nodeName == 'A')
}
rte.add('toggleAnchor', {
  icon: `<span style="transform:rotate(45deg)">&supdsub;</span>`,
  state: (rte, doc) => {
   if (rte && rte.selection()) {
     // `btnState` is a integer, -1 for disabled, 0 for inactive, 1 for active
     return isValidAnchor(rte) ? btnState.ACTIVE : btnState.INACTIVE;
   } else {
     return btnState.INACTIVE;
   }
  },
  result: (rte, action) => {
    if (isValidAnchor(rte)) {
      rte.exec('unlink');
    } else {
      rte.insertHTML(`<a class="link" href="">${rte.selection()}</a>`);
    }
  }
})
