Hi Erdem,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Query : RicheTextEditor (RTE) in External Form Template Editing

We suggest you to use ExternalFormTemplate edit mode in the EditSettings with ExternalFormTemplateID and set the textarea inside the script template for RTE control. We can render the RTE control in the ActionComplete client side event when the request type as “beginedit”. Please refer the below code snippet for further details.



        .EditSettings(edit => { edit









@*Script Template*@

<script id="ExternalTemplate" type="text/template">

    <b>Order Details</b>

    <table cellspacing="10">



    <textarea id="RTE" rows="5" cols="30" style="width: 400px; height: 150px">



<script type="text/javascript">   

    function onActionComplete(args) {

        if (args.requestType == "beginedit")

            $("#RTE").ejRTE(); // Rendering RTE control



For you convenience we have created a simple sample and the same can be downloaded from the below link.
