Configuration in Blazor In-place Editor component

14 Apr 2021 / 6 minutes to read

Rendering modes

This section explains the supported rendering modes of the In-place Editor. The possible Rendering modes are:

* Popup
* Inline

By default, Inline mode will be rendered when opening an editor.

  • For Popup mode, the editable container displays as like tooltip or popover above the element.
  • For Inline mode, the editable container displays instead of the element. To render Inline mode while opening the editor, specify Mode as Inline.

In the following code block, the In-place Editor renders with Inline mode. You can dynamically switch into another mode by changing the drop-down item value.

    this.InplaceMode = (args.Value.ToString() == "Popup" ? RenderMode.Popup : RenderMode.Inline);

}
}

Pop-up customization

In-place Editor popup mode can be customized by using the InPlaceEditorPopupSettings tag.

Popup mode is rendered by using the Blazor Tooltip component, so you can use the tooltip properties and events to customize the behavior of popup via the InPlaceEditorPopupSettings by configuring tooltip properties.

For more details, refer to the tooltip documentation section.

Event actions for editing

The event action of the editor will be enabled in the edit mode based on the EditableOn property. By default, Click is enabled. The following options are also supported:

  • Click: The editor will be opened on single-click actions.
  • DoubleClick: The editor will be opened on double-click actions and it is not applicable for the edit icon.
  • EditIconClick: Disables the editing of event action of input and allows the users to edit only through edit icon.

In-place Editor gets focus by pressing the tab key from the previous focusable DOM element. The editor can be opened by pressing the enter key.

In the following code block, when switching the drop-down item, the selected value is assigned to the EditableOn property. The editor will be opened when you double click on the input.

Action on focus out

Action will be performed when the user clicks outside the container. That means, focusing out of the editable content can be handled by the ActionOnBlur property. By default, Submit is enabled. It also has the following options.

  • Cancel: Cancels the editing and resets the old content.
  • Submit: Submits the edited content to the server.
  • Ignore: No action will be performed with this type.

In the following code block, when switching drop-down item, the selected value assigned to the ActionOnBlur property.

Display modes

By default, the In-place Editor input element is highlighted with a dotted underline. To remove dotted underline from input element, add {"data-underline", "false" } attribute at In-place Editor root element.

In the following code block, indicates the intractable and normal display modes with different examples.
