WYSIWYG hide / disable buttons


Topic: WYSIWYG hide / disable buttons

JeroenVunderink pro premium asked 2 years ago

Is it possible to hide or disable buttons in the WYSIWYG editor. So for instance I want the button for "Insert Link" and "Insert Image" disabled or preferable hidden. same for the "Show HTML" button. Can I do this?

Expected behavior I can set in the TS file the options of buttons i want to see.

Actual behavior Can't find if or how to do this.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

  // Hide the unwanted WYSIWYG options //
  ngAfterViewInit() {
    (document.getElementsByClassName('fa-paperclip')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group') as HTMLElement).style.display = 'none';
    (document.getElementsByClassName('fa-code')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group') as HTMLElement).style.display = 'none';
  }

Hi.

Unfortunately, this solution is not available at the moment. To achieve this, you can hide these elements that use this code:

document.getElementsByClassName('fa-paperclip')[0].closest('.Mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none'

document.getElementsByClassName('fa-code')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none'

Could you please elaborate a little more on this?

So do I need a @ViewChild? And how? And a little example on how to code the "document.getElementsByClassName('fa-code')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none'".

Would be very helpfull.

Thanks

Sure. Just put this code inside ngAfterViewInit() lifecycle hook:

  ngAfterViewInit() {
    document.getElementsByClassName('fa-paperclip')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none'
    document.getElementsByClassName('fa-code')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none'
  }

Thanks. It works in runtime but produces this error at compile time:

ERROR in src/app/pages/litters/edit/editlitter.component.ts:158:94 - error TS2339: Property 'style' does not exist on type 'Element'. 158 document.getElementsByClassName('fa-paperclip')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none' ~~~~~ src/app/pages/litters/edit/editlitter.component.ts:159:89 - error TS2339: Property 'style' does not exist on type 'Element'. 159 document.getElementsByClassName('fa-code')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group').style.display = 'none'

Any suggestions???

This works and compiles:

// Hide the unwanted WYSIWYG options //

ngAfterViewInit() {
    (document.getElementsByClassName('fa-paperclip')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group') as HTMLElement).style.display = 'none';
    (document.getElementsByClassName('fa-code')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-group') as HTMLElement).style.display = 'none';
}

Can you please also provide the getElementsByClassName('xxxx') for the Paragraaf button and the Color buttons.

Would like to disable these as well.

Yes. Try this:

(document.getElementsByClassName('fa-font')[0].closest('.mdb-wysiwyg-toolbar-dropdown-toggle') as HTMLElement).style.display = 'none';
(document.getElementsByClassName('text-style-dropdown')[0] as HTMLElement).style.display = 'none';
