Represents the Kendo UI Editor component for Angular.

Selector

kendo-editor

Inputs

NameTypeDefaultDescription

applyToWord

boolean | ApplyToWordOptions

false

If set to true or ApplyToWordOptions object, commands that apply emphasis or inline styles will be applied to the whole word the cursor is in.

disabled

boolean

Sets the disabled state of the component. To learn how to disable the component in reactive forms, refer to the article on Forms Support.

iframe

boolean

true

If set to false, the Editor will run in style non-encapsulated mode. This means that the styles of the page will be persisted in the Editor and its content will be affected by them.

iframeCss

EditorCssSettings

Allows applying custom CSS styles to the Editor in iframe mode.

pasteCleanupSettings

PasteCleanupSettings

Configures how pasted content is modified before it is added to the Editor (see example).

placeholder

string

The hint, which is displayed when the component is empty.

plugins

PluginsFn

Defines a function which determines the plugins that will be used when initializing the Editor. It exposes the default plugins collection as an argument, and returns the plugins collection that will be used when creating the Editor component. (see example)

preserveWhitespace

boolean | "full"

false

By default, whitespace is collapsed as per HTML's rules. Set to true to preserve whitespace, but normalize newlines to spaces. Set to 'full' to preserve whitespace entirely. In this case the default ProseMirror behavior is to parse white space into nodes.

readonly

boolean

Sets the read-only state of the component.

resizable

boolean | EditorResizableOptions

false

Determines whether the Editor can be resized (see example).

schema

Schema<any>

Allows providing a custom schema. (see example)

value

string

Sets the value of the Editor (see example).

Fields

NameTypeDefaultDescription

selectionText

string

Returns the text which the current Editor selection contains (see example).

view

EditorView

Returns the ProseMirror EditorView object that manages the DOM structure that represents an editable document.

Events

NameTypeDescription

blur

EventEmitter<undefined>

Fires when the content area of the Editor is blurred (see example).

focus

EventEmitter<undefined>

Fires when the content area of the Editor is focused (see example).

paste

EventEmitter<EditorPasteEvent>

Fires when the user performs paste in the content area of the Editor (see example). The event is preventable. If you cancel it, the Editor content will not change.

valueChange

EventEmitter<string>

Fires each time the value of the Editor is changed upon user interaction— for example, when the value is updated through typing in the content area or using some of the Editor tools (see example). When the value of the Editor is programmatically changed through its API (ngModel) or form binding (formControl), the valueChange event is not triggered because it might cause a mix-up with the built-in valueChange mechanisms of the ngModel or formControl bindings.
