Relocate a Control

Toolbar controls are aligned to the left (right if rtlEnabled is true) and preserve the order they have in the items array. Use the location option to override the order.

This option accepts the "before", "center", and "after" values that specify a toolbar control's location relative to that of other controls. In the code below, it is used to order controls as follows: alignLeft, alignRight, color, background, undo, and redo. Note that alignLeft and alignRight assume the default value, "before".

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#htmlEditorContainer").dxHtmlEditor({
        toolbar: {
            items: [
                { formatName: "undo", location: "after" }, 
                { formatName: "redo", location: "after" },
                "alignLeft", "alignRight",
                { formatName: "color", location: "center" }, 
                { formatName: "background", location: "center" }
            ]
        }
    });
});

<dx-html-editor>
    <dxo-toolbar>
        <dxi-item formatName="undo" location="after"></dxi-item>
        <dxi-item formatName="redo" location="after"></dxi-item>
        <dxi-item formatName="alignLeft"></dxi-item>
        <dxi-item formatName="alignRight"></dxi-item>
        <dxi-item formatName="color" location="center"></dxi-item>
        <dxi-item formatName="background" location="center"></dxi-item>
    </dxo-toolbar>
</dx-html-editor>
import { DxHtmlEditorModule } from "devextreme-angular";
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxHtmlEditorModule
    ],
    // ...
})

If the toolbar cannot fit all the controls, some of them are collected in the overflow menu. Use the locateInMenu option to change this behavior:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    $("#htmlEditorContainer").dxHtmlEditor({
        toolbar: {
            items: [
                // ...
                { formatName: "undo", locateInMenu: "always" }, 
                { formatName: "color", locateInMenu: "never" }
            ]
        }
    });
});

        <dxi-item formatName="undo" locateInMenu="always"></dxi-item>
        <dxi-item formatName="color" locateInMenu="never"></dxi-item>
    </dxo-toolbar>
</dx-html-editor>

    // ...
