I want to create and deploy a layouts page in a SharePoint 2013 environment. It is basically a form where you can store values.

Is it possible to use the Rich Text Control which is utilizing the ribbon for formatting?

Edit1 I want this control **
I want the control "Multi" as seen on the picture.
