Filtering

Properties

  • readonly inherited

    editor : Editor

    The editor instance.

    Note that most editors implement the ui property. However, editors with an external UI (i.e. Bootstrap-based) or a headless editor may not have this property or throw an error when accessing it.

    Because of above, to make plugins more universal, it is recommended to split features into:

    • The "editing" part that uses the Editor class without ui property.
    • The "UI" part that uses the Editor class and accesses ui property.
  • inherited observable

    isEnabled : boolean

    Flag indicating whether a plugin is enabled or disabled. A disabled plugin will not transform text.

    Plugin can be simply disabled like that:

    // Disable the plugin so that no toolbars are visible.
    editor.plugins.get( 'TextTransformation' ).isEnabled = false;
    

    You can also use forceDisabled method.

    bind( bindProperty ) → SingleBindChain<K, TableMouse[ K ]>

    Binds observable properties to other objects implementing the Observable interface.

    Read more in the dedicated guide covering the topic of property bindings with some additional examples.

    Consider two objects: a button and an associated command (both Observable).

    A simple property binding could be as follows:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).to( command, 'isEnabled' );
    

    or even shorter:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).to( command );
    

    which works in the following way:

    • button.isEnabled instantly equals command.isEnabled,
    • whenever command.isEnabled changes, button.isEnabled will immediately reflect its value.

    Note: To release the binding, use unbind.

    You can also "rename" the property in the binding by specifying the new name in the to() chain:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).to( command, 'isWorking' );
    

    It is possible to bind more than one property at a time to shorten the code:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled', 'value' ).to( command );
    

    which corresponds to:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).to( command );
    button.bind( 'value' ).to( command );
    

    The binding can include more than one observable, combining multiple data sources in a custom callback:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).to( command, 'isEnabled', ui, 'isVisible',
    	( isCommandEnabled, isUIVisible ) => isCommandEnabled && isUIVisible );
    

    Using a custom callback allows processing the value before passing it to the target property:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).to( command, 'value', value => value === 'heading1' );
    

    It is also possible to bind to the same property in an array of observables. To bind a button to multiple commands (also Observables) so that each and every one of them must be enabled for the button to become enabled, use the following code:

    button.bind( 'isEnabled' ).toMany( [ commandA, commandB, commandC ], 'isEnabled',
    	( isAEnabled, isBEnabled, isCEnabled ) => isAEnabled && isBEnabled && isCEnabled );
    

    Type parameters

    K

    Parameters

    bindProperty : K

    Observable property that will be bound to other observable(s).

    Returns

    SingleBindChain<K, TableMouse[ K ]>

    The bind chain with the to() and toMany() methods.

  • inherited

    clearForceDisabled( id ) → void

    Clears forced disable previously set through forceDisabled. See forceDisabled.

    Parameters

    id : string

    Unique identifier, equal to the one passed in forceDisabled call.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    decorate( methodName ) → void

    Turns the given methods of this object into event-based ones. This means that the new method will fire an event (named after the method) and the original action will be plugged as a listener to that event.

    Read more in the dedicated guide covering the topic of decorating methods with some additional examples.

    Decorating the method does not change its behavior (it only adds an event), but it allows to modify it later on by listening to the method's event.

    For example, to cancel the method execution the event can be stopped:

    class Foo extends ObservableMixin() {
    	constructor() {
    		super();
    		this.decorate( 'method' );
    	}
    
    	method() {
    		console.log( 'called!' );
    	}
    }
    
    const foo = new Foo();
    foo.on( 'method', ( evt ) => {
    	evt.stop();
    }, { priority: 'high' } );
    
    foo.method(); // Nothing is logged.
    

    Note: The high priority listener has been used to execute this particular callback before the one which calls the original method (which uses the "normal" priority).

    It is also possible to change the returned value:

    foo.on( 'method', ( evt ) => {
    	evt.return = 'Foo!';
    } );
    
    foo.method(); // -> 'Foo'
    

    Finally, it is possible to access and modify the arguments the method is called with:

    method( a, b ) {
    	console.log( `${ a }, ${ b }`  );
    }
    
    // ...
    
    foo.on( 'method', ( evt, args ) => {
    	args[ 0 ] = 3;
    
    	console.log( args[ 1 ] ); // -> 2
    }, { priority: 'high' } );
    
    foo.method( 1, 2 ); // -> '3, 2'
    

    Parameters

    methodName : 'off' | 'on' | 'once' | 'listenTo' | 'stopListening' | 'fire' | 'delegate' | 'stopDelegating' | 'set' | 'bind' | 'unbind' | 'decorate' | 'destroy' | 'init' | 'isEnabled' | 'editor' | 'forceDisabled' | 'clearForceDisabled'

    Name of the method to decorate.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    delegate( events ) → EmitterMixinDelegateChain

    Delegates selected events to another Emitter. For instance:

    emitterA.delegate( 'eventX' ).to( emitterB );
    emitterA.delegate( 'eventX', 'eventY' ).to( emitterC );
    

    then eventX is delegated (fired by) emitterB and emitterC along with data:

    emitterA.fire( 'eventX', data );
    

    and eventY is delegated (fired by) emitterC along with data:

    emitterA.fire( 'eventY', data );
    

    Parameters

    events : Array<string>

    Event names that will be delegated to another emitter.

    Returns

    EmitterMixinDelegateChain
  • inherited

    destroy() → void

    Destroys the plugin.

    Note: This method is optional. A plugin instance does not need to have it defined.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    fire( eventOrInfo, args ) → GetEventInfo<TEvent>[ 'return' ]

    Fires an event, executing all callbacks registered for it.

    The first parameter passed to callbacks is an EventInfo object, followed by the optional args provided in the fire() method call.

    Type parameters

    TEvent : extends BaseEvent

    The type describing the event. See BaseEvent.

    Parameters

    eventOrInfo : GetNameOrEventInfo<TEvent>

    The name of the event or EventInfo object if event is delegated.

    args : TEvent[ 'args' ]

    Additional arguments to be passed to the callbacks.

    Returns

    GetEventInfo<TEvent>[ 'return' ]

    By default the method returns undefined. However, the return value can be changed by listeners through modification of the evt.return's property (the event info is the first param of every callback).

  • inherited

    forceDisabled( id ) → void

    Disables the plugin.

    Plugin may be disabled by multiple features or algorithms (at once). When disabling a plugin, unique id should be passed (e.g. feature name). The same identifier should be used when enabling back the plugin. The plugin becomes enabled only after all features enabled it back.

    Disabling and enabling a plugin:

    plugin.isEnabled; // -> true
    plugin.forceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.isEnabled; // -> false
    plugin.clearForceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.isEnabled; // -> true
    

    Plugin disabled by multiple features:

    plugin.forceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.forceDisabled( 'OtherFeature' );
    plugin.clearForceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.isEnabled; // -> false
    plugin.clearForceDisabled( 'OtherFeature' );
    plugin.isEnabled; // -> true
    

    Multiple disabling with the same identifier is redundant:

    plugin.forceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.forceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.clearForceDisabled( 'MyFeature' );
    plugin.isEnabled; // -> true
    

    Note: some plugins or algorithms may have more complex logic when it comes to enabling or disabling certain plugins, so the plugin might be still disabled after clearForceDisabled was used.

    Parameters

    id : string

    Unique identifier for disabling. Use the same id when enabling back the plugin.

    Returns

    void
  • init() → void

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    listenTo( emitter, event, callback, [ options ] ) → void

    Registers a callback function to be executed when an event is fired in a specific (emitter) object.

    Events can be grouped in namespaces using :. When namespaced event is fired, it additionally fires all callbacks for that namespace.

    // myEmitter.on( ... ) is a shorthand for myEmitter.listenTo( myEmitter, ... ).
    myEmitter.on( 'myGroup', genericCallback );
    myEmitter.on( 'myGroup:myEvent', specificCallback );
    
    // genericCallback is fired.
    myEmitter.fire( 'myGroup' );
    // both genericCallback and specificCallback are fired.
    myEmitter.fire( 'myGroup:myEvent' );
    // genericCallback is fired even though there are no callbacks for "foo".
    myEmitter.fire( 'myGroup:foo' );
    

    An event callback can stop the event and set the return value of the fire method.

    Type parameters

    TEvent : extends BaseEvent

    The type describing the event. See BaseEvent.

    Parameters

    emitter : Emitter

    The object that fires the event.

    event : TEvent[ 'name' ]

    The name of the event.

    callback : GetCallback<TEvent>

    [ options ] : GetCallbackOptions<TEvent>

    Additional options.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    off( event, callback ) → void

    Stops executing the callback on the given event. Shorthand for this.stopListening( this, event, callback ).

    Parameters

    event : string

    The name of the event.

    callback : Function

    The function to stop being called.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    on( event, callback, [ options ] ) → void

    Registers a callback function to be executed when an event is fired.

    Shorthand for this.listenTo( this, event, callback, options ) (it makes the emitter listen on itself).

    Type parameters

    TEvent : extends BaseEvent

    The type descibing the event. See BaseEvent.

    Parameters

    event : TEvent[ 'name' ]

    The name of the event.

    Additional options.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    once( event, callback, [ options ] ) → void

    Registers a callback function to be executed on the next time the event is fired only. This is similar to calling on followed by off in the callback.

    Type parameters

    TEvent : extends BaseEvent

    The type descibing the event. See BaseEvent.

    Parameters

    event : TEvent[ 'name' ]

    The name of the event.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    set( name, value ) → void

    Creates and sets the value of an observable property of this object. Such a property becomes a part of the state and is observable.

    This method throws the observable-set-cannot-override error if the observable instance already has a property with the given property name. This prevents from mistakenly overriding existing properties and methods, but means that foo.set( 'bar', 1 ) may be slightly slower than foo.bar = 1.

    In TypeScript, those properties should be declared in class using declare keyword. In example:

    public declare myProp: number;
    
    constructor() {
    	this.set( 'myProp', 2 );
    }
    

    Type parameters

    K

    Parameters

    name : K

    The property's name.

    value : TableMouse[ K ]

    The property's value.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    set( values ) → void

    Creates and sets the value of an observable properties of this object. Such a property becomes a part of the state and is observable.

    It accepts a single object literal containing key/value pairs with properties to be set.

    This method throws the observable-set-cannot-override error if the observable instance already has a property with the given property name. This prevents from mistakenly overriding existing properties and methods, but means that foo.set( 'bar', 1 ) may be slightly slower than foo.bar = 1.

    In TypeScript, those properties should be declared in class using declare keyword. In example:

    public declare myProp1: number;
    public declare myProp2: string;
    
    constructor() {
    	this.set( {
    		'myProp1: 2,
    		'myProp2: 'foo'
    	} );
    }
    

    Parameters

    values : object

    An object with name=>value pairs.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    stopDelegating( [ event ], [ emitter ] ) → void

    Stops delegating events. It can be used at different levels:

    • To stop delegating all events.
    • To stop delegating a specific event to all emitters.
    • To stop delegating a specific event to a specific emitter.

    Parameters

    [ event ] : string

    The name of the event to stop delegating. If omitted, stops it all delegations.

    [ emitter ] : Emitter

    (requires event) The object to stop delegating a particular event to. If omitted, stops delegation of event to all emitters.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    stopListening( [ emitter ], [ event ], [ callback ] ) → void

    Stops listening for events. It can be used at different levels:

    • To stop listening to a specific callback.
    • To stop listening to a specific event.
    • To stop listening to all events fired by a specific object.
    • To stop listening to all events fired by all objects.

    Parameters

    [ emitter ] : Emitter

    The object to stop listening to. If omitted, stops it for all objects.

    [ event ] : string

    (Requires the emitter) The name of the event to stop listening to. If omitted, stops it for all events from emitter.

    [ callback ] : Function

    (Requires the event) The function to be removed from the call list for the given event.

    Returns

    void
  • inherited

    unbind( unbindProperties ) → void

    Removes the binding created with bind.

    // Removes the binding for the 'a' property.
    A.unbind( 'a' );
    
    // Removes bindings for all properties.
    A.unbind();
    

    Parameters

    unbindProperties : Array<'off' | 'on' | 'once' | 'listenTo' | 'stopListening' | 'fire' | 'delegate' | 'stopDelegating' | 'set' | 'bind' | 'unbind' | 'decorate' | 'destroy' | 'init' | 'isEnabled' | 'editor' | 'forceDisabled' | 'clearForceDisabled'>

    Observable properties to be unbound. All the bindings will be released if no properties are provided.

    Returns

    void
  • private

    _enableMouseDragSelection() → void

    Enables making cells selection by dragging.

    The selection is made only on mousemove. Mouse tracking is started on mousedown. However, the cells selection is enabled only after the mouse cursor left the anchor cell. Thanks to that normal text selection within one cell works just fine. However, you can still select just one cell by leaving the anchor cell and moving back to it.

    Returns

    void
  • private

    _enableShiftClickSelection() → void

    Enables making cells selection by Shift+click. Creates a selection from the cell which previously held the selection to the cell which was clicked. It can be the same cell, in which case it selects a single cell.

    Returns

    void
  • private

    _getModelTableCellFromDomEvent( domEventData ) → null | Element

    Returns the model table cell element based on the target element of the passed DOM event.

    Parameters

    domEventData : DomEventData<Event>

    Returns

    null | Element

    Returns the table cell or undefined.
