    Create Office Ribbon Control

    In a real-time scenario, MS Office Bold and Italic options work as a Toggle Button and Underline option works as a Split Button. Here, you can learn how to use Button control feature by using the Office Ribbon options.

    Add Button controls by using the following code example. 

  • html
  • <td>
            <ej:togglebutton ID="Bold" runat="server" DefaultText="Bold" ActiveText="Bold" ShowRoundedCorner="true"
                             Size="Small" ClientSideOnClick="boldSetUnset">
            </ej:togglebutton>
        </td>
        <td>
            <ej:togglebutton ID="Italic" runat="server" DefaultText="Italic" ShowRoundedCorner="true"
                             Size="Small" ClientSideOnClick="italicSetUnset">
            </ej:togglebutton>
        </td>
        <td>
            <ej:splitbutton ID="Underline" runat="server" Text="Underline" Size="Small" ShowRoundedCorner="true"
                            ClientSideOnClick="underlineSetUnset" ClientSideOnItemSelected="select">
                <Items>
                    <ej:SplitItem Text="Dotted Line">
                    </ej:SplitItem>
                    <ej:SplitItem Text="solid">
                    </ej:SplitItem>
                    <ej:SplitItem Text="dashed">
                    </ej:SplitItem>
                </Items>
            </ej:splitbutton>
    </td>

    Add Function Definition from click event to Button function. 

  • js
  • <script type="text/javascript">
        function boldSetUnset(e) {
            if (e.isChecked) {
                $(".sample span").wrap("<b></b>");<%--add the bold tag to span--%>
            }
            else {
                $(".sample span").unwrap("<b></b>");<%--remove the bold tag to span--%>
            }
        }
        function italicSetUnset(e) {
            if ($(".sample span").parents().is("i")) {
                $(".sample span").unwrap("<i></i>");<%--remove the italic tag to span--%>
            }
            else {
                $(".sample span").wrap("<i></i>");<%--add the italic tag to span--%>
            }
        }
        function underlineSetUnset(e) {
            if ($(".sample span").parents().is("u")) {
                $(".sample span").unwrap("<u></u>");<%--remove the underline tag to span--%>
            } else {
                $(".sample span").wrap("<u></u>");<%--add the underline tag to span--%>
            }
        }
        function select(e) {
            if ($(".sample span:last-child").parents().is("span")) {
                $(".sample #under span").unwrap("<span id='under'></span>");
            }
            switch (e.events.text) {
                case "Dotted Line": $(".sample span").wrap("<span id='under' style='border-bottom: 1px dotted #000000;'></span>");
                    break;
                case "solid": $(".sample span").wrap("<span id='under' style='border-bottom: 1px solid #000000;'></span>");
                    break;
                case "dashed": $(".sample span").wrap("<span id='under' style='border-bottom: 1px dashed #000000;'></span>");
                    break;
            }
        }
    </script>
