Custom Toolbar Items

In addition to the Default Toolbar Items that allow end-users to perform specific predefined actions, the ASPxHtmlEditor's toolbars can be extended with toolbar items providing custom functionality and content. To accomplish this, you can use the following custom toolbar items shipped with the ASPxHtmlEditor.



Corresponding class




A button that allows you to perform custom actions when clicked.

Combo Box


A dropdown list with a choice of selectable items - much like a standard combo box.

Online demo: Combo Box

Dropdown Menu


A button that displays a dropdown menu when clicked.

Online demo: Drop-down Menu

Dropdown Item Picker


A button with a dropdown, containing a list of items available for selection. To select an item, users can hover the mouse pointer over a button or click it, to open its dropdown list and then select an item in the list.

Expanded Example

This example demonstrates how to create a custom toolbar with different types of Custom Toolbar Items in the ASPxHtmlEditor.

A toolbar item's CommandName property specifies the name of the command that is executed by this item. The custom command logic is implemented in the ASPxClientHtmlEditor.CustomCommand event handler.
