Styles and Templates

This section describes the styles and templates for the SfRichTextBoxAdv control. The Template defines the structure of the SfRichTextBoxAdv control and the Style defines its visual appearance. You can modify the default Control template to define a unique appearance for the control.
The following XAML shows the default style and template for the SfRichTextBoxAdv control.

<Style TargetType="RichTextBoxAdv:SfRichTextBoxAdv" xmlns:RichTextBoxAdv="using:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.RichTextBoxAdv">
    <Setter Property="Template">
        <Setter.Value>
            <ControlTemplate TargetType="RichTextBoxAdv:SfRichTextBoxAdv">
                <Border Background="{TemplateBinding Background}" BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" BorderThickness="{TemplateBinding BorderThickness}">
                    <Grid>
                        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
                        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                        <Grid x:Name="OptionsPane" Visibility="Collapsed"/>
                        <Grid Grid.Column="1">
                            <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                                <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
                                <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
                            </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                            <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                                <RowDefinition Height="*"/>
                                <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                            </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                            <ContentControl x:Name="content" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" />
                            <ScrollBar x:Name="HorizontalScrollBar" Grid.Column="0" Height="16" Visibility="Collapsed" IsTabStop="False" Minimum="0" Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1"/>
                            <ScrollBar x:Name="VerticalScrollBar" Grid.Column="1" IsTabStop="False" Visibility="Collapsed" Minimum="0" Orientation="Vertical" Grid.Row="0" Width="16"/>
                        </Grid>
                    </Grid>
                </Border>
            </ControlTemplate>
        </Setter.Value>
    </Setter>
</Style>

NOTE

In the control template, you are allowed to reorder the template parts and to add your own elements. However, when changing the control template you should be careful to include all required parts. Usually required parts are marked with Name attribute. Omission of required parts may impact some of the functionality.

Styling the SfRichTextBoxAdv

You can define custom style for the SfRichTextBoxAdv control either by creating empty style and set it up on your own or by copying the default style and modifying it.
The following example demonstrates how to customize the style for SfRichTextBoxAdv control.

<Style x:Key="RichTextBoxAdvCustomStyle" TargetType="RichTextBoxAdv:SfRichTextBoxAdv" xmlns:RichTextBoxAdv="using:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.RichTextBoxAdv">
    <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="1"/>
    <Setter Property="Template">
        <Setter.Value>
            <ControlTemplate TargetType="RichTextBoxAdv:SfRichTextBoxAdv">
                <Border Background="{TemplateBinding Background}" BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}" BorderThickness="{TemplateBinding BorderThickness}">
                    <Grid>
                        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                            <RowDefinition Height="*"/>
                        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
                            <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
                        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                        <Border Background="Gray" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="2">
                            <TextBlock Text="Rich Text Editor" FontSize="28" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Foreground="White"/>
                        </Border>
                        <Grid x:Name="OptionsPane" Visibility="Collapsed" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0"/>
                        <Grid Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1">
                            <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                                <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
                                <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
                            </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                            <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                                <RowDefinition Height="*"/>
                                <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                            </Grid.RowDefinitions>
                            <ContentControl x:Name="content" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" />
                            <ScrollBar x:Name="HorizontalScrollBar" Grid.Column="0" Height="16" Visibility="Collapsed" IsTabStop="False" Minimum="0" Orientation="Horizontal" Grid.Row="1"/>
                            <ScrollBar x:Name="VerticalScrollBar" Grid.Column="0" IsTabStop="False" Visibility="Collapsed" Minimum="0" Orientation="Vertical" Grid.Row="0" Width="16"/>
                        </Grid>
                    </Grid>
                </Border>
            </ControlTemplate>
        </Setter.Value>
    </Setter>
</Style>

The following code example demonstrates how to apply the custom style for RichTextBoxAdv control.

<RichTextBoxAdv:SfRichTextBoxAdv x:Name="richTextBoxAdv" ManipulationMode="All" Style="{StaticResource RichTextBoxAdvCustomStyle}" xmlns:RichTextBoxAdv="using:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.RichTextBoxAdv"/>

The following screenshot shows the SfRichTextBoxAdv control with customized style.
