My goal is to create a rich text editor for a textarea in my custom webpart in SharePoint 2013. The data is saved outside the SharePoint, so I can't really use a sharepoint list for that.
I really like the way rich text editors work in SharePoint 2013 when you edit list items with enhanced rich text fields:
When I use a built-in RTE control in my markup SharePoint:InputFormTextBox:
<SharePoint:InputFormTextBox ID="rftDefaultValue" RichText="true" RichTextMode="FullHtml" runat="server" TextMode="MultiLine" Rows="5"> </SharePoint:InputFormTextBox>
It gives just an inline RTE in IE or nothing in Chrome:
The question is:
Could it be possible to use the cross browser ribbon based Rich Text Editor in custom webpart textareas?
