Integrate an ImageEditor in the Editor Component


Product Progress® Kendo UI® Editor for jQuery


Can I integrate an ImageEditor in the Kendo UI for jQuery Editor component to edit images?


To achieve the desired scenario:

  1. First, place the ImageEditor in a popup, for example, a Kendo UI for jQuery Window which is initially closed.

  2. Next, define a Kendo UI for jQuery ContextMenu that opens when right-clicking an image.

  3. Finally, open the Window containing the ImageEditor and load the image in it.

     <div id="example">
      <div id="dialog">

        <div id="imageeditor"></div>
        <div class="window-footer">
          <button type="button" class="k-button">Close</button>
          <button type="button" class="k-primary k-button">Save changes</button>

      <ul id="menu">
          Edit Image
      <div class="demo-section k-content wide">
        <textarea id="editor" rows="10" cols="30" style="width:90%; height:470px" aria-label="editor">
          &lt;br /&gt;
          &lt;p style="text-align:center;"&gt;
          &lt;span style="font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;font-size:large;"&gt;&lt;strong&gt;One of the Most Beautiful Islands on Earth - Tenerife&lt;/strong&gt;
          &lt;span style="font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;font-size:medium;"&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Overview&lt;/strong&gt;
          &lt;p style="font-size: small;"&gt;
          &lt;strong&gt;Tenerife &lt;/strong&gt;is the largest and most populated island of the eight &lt;a href="" target="_blank"&gt;Canary Islands&lt;/a&gt;. It is also the most populated island of &lt;strong&gt;Spain&lt;/strong&gt;, with a land area of 2,034.38 square kilometers (785 sq mi) and 904,713 inhabitants, 43% of the total population of the &lt;strong&gt;Canary Islands&lt;/strong&gt;.&amp;nbsp;The archipelago's beaches, climate and important natural attractions, make it a major tourist destination with over 12 million visitors per year.

It is a 13.5-hectare zoo on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz on Tenerife, Spain where it houses an extensive and diverse reserve of animal and plant species.
