Represents the Kendo UI Editor component for Angular.




sandbox boolean

If set to true, the Editor will run in its sandbox mode. This means
that the styles of the external page will not be persisted in the Editor
and its content will not be affected by them.

value string

Sets the value of the Editor (see example).


valueChange EventEmitter

Fires each time the value of the Editor is changed upon user interaction—
for example, when the component is blurred or the value is updated through the viewSource dialog.
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.



Manually blur the Editor.


Executes a command on the currently selected text
(more information and example).

// Toggles the bold styling.

// Creates a bullet list.

// Creates a link.
editor.exec('createLink', { href: 'www.progress.com', title: 'Progress', target: 'window' });

// Inserts a file.
editor.exec('insertFile', { href: 'www.progress.com/resources/myfile.doc', title: 'My file', target: 'window' });

// Inserts a image.
editor.exec('insertImage', { src: 'www.progress.com/resources/logo.jpg', title: 'Progress', target: 'window' });

// Inserts a text at a given position. If no position is specified, the text will be inserted after the cursor.
editor.exec('insertText', { text: 'Hello World!', from: 0, to: 0 });

// Changes the format of a text block.
editor.exec('format', { tag: 'h2' });

// Changes the font size of the selected text.
editor.exec('fontSize', 24);

// Changes the content of the Editor.
editor.exec('setHTML', '<p>HTML content</p>');
