Set default font family to the Editor in Div mode

Environment

Product Editor for Blazor

Description

I would like to set a default font typeface to the Editor.

Solutions

The default font typeface of the content area of the Editor is based on the default font of the browser it is run under. When you are using the Editor in Div edit mode you can use CSS rules to define the default font-family for the content area of the component. The control exposes a Class parameter that takes a custom CSS class which can be used to cascade the required styles.

@* The style rule is important, it matches the Class of the component *@

<style>
    .myTelerikEditor div.k-editor-content div.k-content {
        font-family: "Arial Black", Gadget, sans-serif;
    }
</style>

<TelerikEditor @bind-Value="@TheEditorValue"
               Width="650px"
               Height="400px"
               EditMode="@EditorEditMode.Div"
               Class="myTelerikEditor">
</TelerikEditor>

@code{
    string TheEditorValue { get; set; }

    protected override Task OnInitializedAsync()
    {
        TheEditorValue = @"

@code{
    string TheEditorValue { get; set; }
    public List<IEditorTool> MyTools { get; set; }

    protected override Task OnInitializedAsync()
    {
        //initialize the toolbar collection with all built-in tools
        MyTools = new List<IEditorTool>(EditorToolSets.Default);

        //add the typeface to the default list of fonts
        List<EditorDropDownListItem> fontFamilyChoices = new List<EditorDropDownListItem>(EditorDropDownListToolItems.FontFamilyItems);
        fontFamilyChoices.Add(new EditorDropDownListItem()
        {
            Text = "Arial Black",
            Value = "Arial Black"
        });

        MyTools.Add(new FontFamily() { Data = fontFamilyChoices });
