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.

  • I see, yeah just steal the code from a page that uses that then. (I do this to get around EVERY problem that I can't do OOTB easily :P) – Hugh Wood May 10 '13 at 16:01

Correct answer: Steal it from a working one on a page OOTB using ILSpy. (Answer to everything)

Wrong answer but left in: This is the 2007 control This is how the control should look Max:

    AllowHyperlink="true" />

    Apparently this results in the retro control with the toolbar above the control - no ribbon yet. – Max Melcher May 10 '13 at 15:11
  • Sorry max, misunderstood, you want to basically grab and steal the content editor web part (Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ContentEditorWebPart for this. Pretty easy to do infact someone has already done it for you. zootfroot.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/… – Hugh Wood May 10 '13 at 15:24
