Description

How can I handle focus and blur events in the Kendo UI for jQuery Editor?

Solution

The Editor does not expose focus and blur events as built-in functionalities.

However, regardless of the initialization mode you apply to the widget, you can handle them by using JavaScript.

The following example demonstrates how to handle the blur and the focus events of the Editor.

    <style>
      #editor{
        position: absolute;
        width: 90%;
        top: 60px;
      }
    </style>
    <body>
      <textarea id="editor"></textarea>
      <script>
        var editor = $('#editor').kendoEditor().data('kendoEditor');
        $(editor.body).focus(function(){
          console.log('Focus');
        }).blur(function(){
          console.log('Blur')
        });
      </script>
