Editor PHP Class Overview

The Kendo UI Editor for PHP is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Editor widget.

Getting Started

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI Editor for PHP.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for PHP—include the autoloader, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Step 2 Create an Editor.

Example
    <?php
    $editor = new \Kendo\UI\Editor('editor');
    $editor->value('#ff0000');
    ?>

Step 3 Output the Editor by echoing the result of the render method.

Example
    <?php
    echo $editor->render();
    ?>

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all Editor events.

Specify Function Names

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe for events by specifying a JavaScript function name.

Example
    <?php
    $editor = new \Kendo\UI\Editor('editor');

    // The 'editor_change' JavaScript function will handle the 'change' event of the editor
    $editor->change('editor_change');

    echo $editor->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    function editor_change() {
        // Handle the change event
    }
    </script>

Provide Inline Code

The example below demonstrates how to subscribe to events by providing inline JavaScript code.

Example
    <?php
    $editor = new \Kendo\UI\Editor('editor');

    // Provide inline JavaScript code that will handle the 'change' event of the editor
    $editor->change('function() { /* Handle the change event */ }');

    echo $editor->render();
    ?>

Reference

Server-Side Value

The Editor posts its value HTML-encoded by default. You can either disable this functionality through the encoded configuration option, or use html_entity_decode.

Client-Side Instances

You are able to reference an existing Editor instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, use the Editor API to control its behavior.

Example
    <?php
    $editor = new \Kendo\UI\Editor('editor');
    echo $editor->render();
    ?>
    <script>
    $(function() {
        // The constructor parameter is used as the 'id' HTML attribute of the editor
        var editor = $("#editor").data("kendoEditor")
    });
    </script>
