[UWP][C#]HTML Editor in Windows 10 UWP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want a HTML Editor in to read HTML, allow formatting options and give output as HTML. I found some APIs in iOS and Android but not for Windows. Is it possible in Windows or not?

    Android

    Android HTML Editor

    iOS

    iOS HTML Editor

    in Windows, we have RichEditBox but the issue is that it supports only RTF format, not HTML.

    >>” in Windows, we have RichEditBox but the issue is that it supports only RTF format, not HTML.”

    Yes. If you want to edit HTML file, you could use RichEditBox, but you would need to code yourself. And if you want to show HTML, you could use WebView.

    I know open source project, it would be that you want. You could use your favorite search tool to search with the key word “windows 10 UWP HTML editor github”. You could refer to its code for details.

  • You can use pretty much any editor written in C#, just take in the source code and recompile it for UWP.

  • If you have an html5 app you can use any javascript html editor.  Component one control set has a html editor you can use with xaml apps

  • @Xavier, This is what I got when I searched using the text that you suggested

    But in this, the user needs to manually add html tags.

  • That's a bit harsh. A WYSIWYG HTML editor is hardly a trivial project.

  • Kinjan Bhavsar did not ask for "ready to use answers", the question asked about the API that can be used to develop a solution. Then mcosmin said that anything can work and of course that is too much of a generalization so Kinjan Bhavsar said that they are incompatible with Windows 10 UWP. If you don't know what API to use then just say nothing.

    I have written a very simple HTML editor. I know that HTML is quirky. I also know that the UWP way of programming is often quite different from older APIs. Kinjan Bhavsar was asking where to look to know what can be used.

    People use Windows because it has better support than other choices such as Linux. The support here however is no better than a similar question about Linux and Kinjan Bhavsar might have been driven back to Linux.
