                insertOrderedList: 'Lista numerowana',

Custom color palette

By default, Angular Bootstrap WYSIWYG Editor use color palette from MDBootstrap's text colors. If you need to use your custom colors, you can simply customize them to fit your project.

        <mdb-wysiwyg [options]="options"></mdb-wysiwyg>


        import {Component} from '@angular/core';

          selector: 'wysiwyg-colors',
          templateUrl: './wysiwyg-colors.component.html',
          styleUrls: ['./wysiwyg-colors.component.scss']
        export class WysiwygColorsComponent {
          options = {
            colors: {
              red: '#d50000',
              green: '#64dd17',
              yellow: '#fff176',
              blue: '#03a9f4',
              purple: '#6a1b9a',
              white: '#fff',
              black: '#000'


Custom color palette

There's two ways to get the latest WYSIWYG value. You can use (valueChange) event, or you can subscribe to the valueChange$ observable.

        <mdb-wysiwyg #wysiwyg (valueChange)="onValueChange($event)"></mdb-wysiwyg>


        import {Component, AfterViewInit, ViewChild} from '@angular/core';
        import {MdbWysiwygComponent} from 'mdb-wysiwyg';

          selector: 'wysiwyg-events',
          templateUrl: './wysiwyg-events.component.html',
          styleUrls: ['./wysiwyg-events.component.scss']
        export class WysiwygEventsComponent {
          @ViewChild(MdbWysiwygComponent) wysiwyg: MdbWysiwygComponent;

          ngAfterViewInit() {
            this.wysiwyg.valueChange$.subscribe((data: any) => {

          onValueChange(value: string) {
