    When users use the "createLink" tool of the editor, I need to trap the output and Make it Bold and Underline.

    How can I change the output? 

    Is there an event I can hook on? an API I can use?

    If there is a way to add functionality to any tool of the editor, I would like to be able to do it.


    Thank you in advance

    Hello Ofer,

    The desired behavior can be achieved by extending the LinkFormatter's apply() method as follows:
    var _apply = kendo.ui.editor.LinkFormatter.fn.apply;
    kendo.ui.editor.LinkFormatter.fn.apply = function(range, attributes) {  
     var attributesExtended = $.extend({
      style: { "fontWeight": "bold", "textDecoration": "underline" }
     }, attributes);
      , range, attributesExtended);

    I have prepared a Dojo example, where you can observe that after inserting a link, the output <a> tag is styled with font-weight: bold and text-decoration: underline. 

    The Kendo UI Editor also allows you to create custom tools. Refer to the below resources for examples and additional information:
