The toolbar provides predefined items and supports custom items. To add a predefined item to the toolbar, include it in the items array:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function(){
    $("#htmlEditorContainer").dxHtmlEditor({
        toolbar: {
            items: [ "bold", "italic", "alignCenter", "undo", "redo" ]
        }
    })
})
Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-html-editor>
    <dxo-toolbar [items]="[ 'bold', 'italic', 'alignCenter', 'undo', 'redo' ]"></dxo-toolbar>
</dx-html-editor>
import { DxHtmlEditorModule } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxHtmlEditorModule
    ],
    // ...
})
ASP.NET MVC Controls
Razor C#
@(Html.DevExtreme().HtmlEditor()
    .Toolbar(t => t
        .Items(i => {
            i.Add().FormatName("bold");
            i.Add().FormatName("italic");
            i.Add().FormatName("alignCenter");
            i.Add().FormatName("undo");
            i.Add().FormatName("redo");
        })
    )
)

Most of the predefined items are buttons. To customize a button, assign its name to the formatName option and specify the button options in the options object:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function(){
    $("#htmlEditorContainer").dxHtmlEditor({
        toolbar: {
            items: [ // ...
            { 
                formatName: "clear", 
                options: { icon: "clear", type: "danger" }
            }]
        }
    })
})
Angular
TypeScript
HTML
import { DxHtmlEditorModule } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    items: any = [ // ...
    { 
        formatName: "clear", 
        options: { icon: "clear", type: "danger" }
    }];
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxHtmlEditorModule
    ],
    // ...
})
<dx-html-editor>
    <dxo-toolbar [items]="items"></dxo-toolbar>
</dx-html-editor>
ASP.NET MVC Controls
Razor C#
@(Html.DevExtreme().HtmlEditor()
    .Toolbar(t => t
        .Items(i => { 
            i.Add().FormatName("clear")
                .Widget(w => w.Button()
                    .Icon("clear")
                    .Type(ButtonType.Danger)
                );
        })
    )
)

To use another widget instead of a button, specify the widget option and configure the widget in the options object. In this case, you should also implement all the logic.

The toolbar provides a short syntax for implementing a custom drop-down menu with multiple choices. Refer to the formatName description for more information.
