The DevExpress ASP.NET MVC HTML Editor extension allows end-users to format the pasted HTML content using buttons that appear in the top right corner of the design area once the content is pasted. By default, this functionality is disabled. Set the SettingsHtmlEditing.EnablePasteOptions property to true to enable it. The available formatting options are listed below.
- SourceFormatting - The formatting of the pasted content is retained.
- MergeFormatting - The formatting of the pasted content is mostly discarded. However, emphasis formatting, such as bold and italic text, is retained when it is applied to only a portion of the selection.
- PlainText - The formatting of the pasted content and non-text elements, such as pictures or tables, is discarded.
Additionally, you can format the pasted HTML content in code using the client-side BeforePaste event. In this demo, you can use the Formatting Settings check boxes to apply the corresponding formatting options to the pasted content in the BeforePaste event handler.
