I added Kendo.Mvc.dll (2018.3.1017.545) to my mvc project in vs2019.

I write this code in my index.cshtml file.
@(Html.Kendo().Editor() .Name("Test") .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width: 100%; height:840px" }) .Tools(tools => tools .Clear() .Bold().Italic().Underline() .JustifyLeft().JustifyCenter().JustifyRight() .InsertUnorderedList().InsertOrderedList() .Outdent().Indent() .CreateLink().Unlink() .InsertImage() .TableEditing() .FontName() .FontSize() .BackColor() .FontColor() ) .ImageBrowser(imageBrowser => imageBrowser .Image("~/shared/UserFiles/Images/{0}") .Read("Read", "ImageBrowser") .Create("Create", "ImageBrowser") .Destroy("Destroy", "ImageBrowser") .Upload("Upload", "ImageBrowser") ) .Value(@<text> </text>) )

and I added this using at top of my file:

@using Kendo.Mvc.UI

and I added these Scripts to _layout:

<script src="~/Scripts/kendo/kendo.all.min.js"></script>

<script src="~/Scripts/kendo/kendo.aspnetmvc.min.js">

</script><script src="~/Scripts/kendo/kendo.editor.min.js"></script>

even once I added all .js and .css file of kendo, but not worked.

but in chrome I see an empty TextArea.

what else should I do to fix it?

Hi Siyavash,

Based on the provided code snippet, I can make the following suggestions:

  1. Make sure jQuery is registered before the Kendo UI scripts.
  2. Remove kendo.editor.min.js, because it is already included in kendo.all.min.js
  3. Always keep an eye on the browser's JavaScript console for errors, which can point you in the right direction.

Please check the following useful and relevant resources
