I am trying to set the tools using EditorFor to create a text editor that shows with no tools 
as the default view but cannot get the syntax correct.

@
Html.Kendo().EditorFor(m
 => m.ChildViewModel.Text).HtmlAttributes(new { Width = "100%", tools = "[]" })

I would also like to show a limited number of tools using the same method for another editor
on the same page.



Please show me the correct syntax for configuring tools using the 'Html.Kendo().EditorFor'
method.

Thanks

I know this post is too old. Just to help others, here is a solution 

            @(Html.Kendo().EditorFor(model => model.CustomerFeedback.Description)
                   .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:100px; width: 450px" })
                   .Tools(tools => tools
                             .Clear()))

Strange, I didn't know that you had to put the extra parentheses in there (i.e. after the "@" and at the end) because it generally is not needed unless of course you want to add a tool to the toolbar apparently, lol. Anyway, this worked for me, so thank you!

Dear All,

I need to add a new custom button on top of the editorfor() control for inserting an email signature. Please help me in this.

I tried as below with custom button, which is not helping me.

    @(Html.Kendo().EditorFor(model => model.RequestDescription)
                .Name("new_editorForRequestDescription")
                .HtmlAttributes(new {style = "height:440px", aria_label = "editor", tabindex = 195 })
                .Tools(tools=>tools
                .CustomButton(cb=>cb.Name("CustomEmailSignature").ToolTip("Insert Email Signature")))
                .Resizable(resizable => resizable.Content(true).Toolbar(true))

                )

Thanks,

Sajitha

Hello,

Adding Custom button configuration for Editor component is demonstrated on the following demo: https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/editor/custom-tools 

Generally speaking, all For helpers (e.g EditorFor, ComboBoxFor and etc) automatically assign a name to the widget, so manually doing that is not necessary. Removing the Name method from the widget's configuration should solve the issue. Here is an example configuration of EditorFor helper:

View:

@(Html.Kendo().EditorFor(model => model.ContactName)
 .Resizable(resizable => resizable
 .Content(true)
 .Toolbar(true))
 .Tools(t => t
 .Clear()
 .Bold()
  .CustomButton(cb => cb.Name("custom").ToolTip("Insert a horizontal rule").Exec(@<text>
                        function(e) {
                        var editor = $(this).data("kendoEditor");
                        editor.exec("inserthtml", { value: "<hr />" });
                        }
            </text>))
 )
 )

Controller:

 public ActionResult Index()
        {
            ViewBag.Message = "Welcome to ASP.NET MVC!";
            var model = new OrderViewModel
            {
                ContactName = "My Name"
            };
            return View(model);
        }

Model:

 public class OrderViewModel
    {
        public int OrderID
        {
            get;
            set;
        }

        public string ContactName
        {
            get;
            set;
        }

You could observe the result on my end in the following screenshot:

I hope this helps.
