Toolbar Items for Working With Images

This article describes the built-in toolbar items for insert and edit images.

Insert Images

Use the following toolbar items for adding/inserting an image in the editor.

  • RichTextEditorAddImageToolbarItem—Allows you to add an image; the RichTextEditor PickImage event is fired, so you can handle the logic for selecting an image. The toolbar is enabled if no image is selected.
  • RichTextEditorAddOrEditImageToolbarItem—Adds or edits images depending whether image is selected. If image is selected, the editor opens a dialog to edit the image. If image is not selected the PickImage event fires.
  • RichTextEditorImageNavigationToolbarItem—Adds images or navigates to additional toolbar items depending whether image is selected. If image is selected, the editor navigates to image operation toolbar items. If image is not selected the PickImage event fires.

Additional Toolbar Items for Image Operations

The RichTextEditorImageNavigationToolbarItem has the following items:

  • RichTextEditorEditImageToolbarItem—Allows you to resize the image. In addition the toolbar allows you to pick an image (the RichTextEditor.PickImage event is fired) if you haven't selected one. Check Edit Image Toolbar Item for more details.
  • RichTextEditorCutToolbarItem—Allows you to cut the selected HTML/image to the clipboard.
  • RichTextEditorCopyToolbarItem—Allows you to copy the selected HTML/image to the clipboard.
  • RichTextEditorPasteHtmlToolbarItem—Allows you to paste HTML/image from the clipboard.
  • RichTextEditorRemoveImageToolbarItem—Allows you to remove the currently selected image from the document.

<Grid RowDefinitions="{OnIdiom Desktop='Auto, *', Phone='*, Auto'}">
    <telerik:RadRichTextEditor x:Name="richTextEditor"
                               Grid.Row="{OnIdiom Desktop=1, Phone=0}"
                               Source="{Binding RTSource}" />
    <telerik:RadRichTextEditorToolbar x:Name="richTextToolbar"
                                      Grid.Row="{OnIdiom Desktop=0, Phone=1}"
                                      RichTextEditor="{x:Reference richTextEditor}"
        <telerik:RichTextEditorImagePickerToolbarItem ItemsSource="{Binding EmojiSource}"/>
        <telerik:RichTextEditorUndoToolbarItem />
        <telerik:RichTextEditorRedoToolbarItem />
        <telerik:RichTextEditorBoldToolbarItem />
        <telerik:RichTextEditorItalicToolbarItem />
        <telerik:RichTextEditorUnderlineToolbarItem />

In addition to this, you need to add the following namespace:

2. Add the telerik namespaces:


3. The VieWModel for the ImagePicker Items Source and RichTextEditor Source:

public class ViewModel
    public ViewModel()
        this.RTSource = RichTextSource.FromStream(() =>
            Assembly assembly = typeof(ViewModel).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;
            string fileName = assembly.GetManifestResourceNames()
                .FirstOrDefault(n => n.Contains("pick-image-demo.html"));

            return assembly.GetManifestResourceStream(fileName);
    public List<RichTextImageSource> EmojiSource { get; private set; }

    public RichTextSource RTSource {get; private set; }

    private void InitializeImages()
        var currentAssembly = typeof(ViewModel).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;
        var resourceNames = currentAssembly.GetManifestResourceNames();
        var imageSources = new List<RichTextImageSource>();

        foreach (var resourceName in resourceNames)
            if (resourceName.Contains("emoji"))
                var imageSource = RichTextImageSource.FromStream(() =>
                    currentAssembly.GetManifestResourceStream(resourceName), RichTextImageType.Png);


        this.EmojiSource = imageSources;
