TinyMCE custom style formats

Describes how to add more advanced style formats for text and other elements to the TinyMCE editor.

See the TinyMCE documentation for information about configuring style formats: https://www.tiny.cloud/docs-4x/configure/content-formatting/#style_formats

public static class ServiceCollectionExtentions {
  public static IServiceCollection AddTinyMceConfiguration(this IServiceCollection services) {
    services.Configure<TinyMceConfiguration>(config => {
      config.For<StandardPage>(t => t.MainBody)
        .Toolbar("styleselect")
        .StyleFormats(
          new {
            title = "Bold text", inline = "strong"
          },
          new {
            title = "Red text", inline = "span", styles = new {
              color = "#ff0000"
            }
          },
          new {
            title = "Red header", block = "h1", styles = new {
              color = "#ff0000"
            }
          },
          new {
            title = "button link", classes = "btn btn-default", block = "a", inline = "span"
          }
        );
    });
    return services;
  }
}

Localizing formats

Add the translations to your XML translations file as children of the element <tinymce><editorstyles>. The title of the format is the key in the XML.

📘

Note

The title must be lowercase and it must be a valid XML key. For example, you cannot use spaces.

So, write the style formats from the previous example in lowercase and with no spaces. In this case, you replace the spaces with dashes.

config.For<StandardPage>(t => t.MainBody)
  .Toolbar("styleselect formatselect")
  .StyleFormats(
    new {
      title = "bold-text", inline = "strong"
    },
    new {
      title = "red-text", inline = "span", styles = new {
        color = "#ff0000"
      }
    },
    new {
      title = "red-header", block = "h1", styles = new {
        color = "#ff0000"
      }
    }
  )
  .BlockFormats("paragraph1=p;header1=h1;header2=h2;header3=h3");
