Hi Guys,

Can someone please help me how can I change the contents of Formats dropdown?

At the moment, default values are: Paragraph, Code, Quotation, Heading 1 etc.

I want to remove the Code, Quotation and add a new custom Format called "My Paragraph".

I have gone through the documentation and apparently, it is not listed.

Help will be appreciated.

Hi Fahad , 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We suggest you modify the existing “format” option using “Format” property as shown below. 
    function onBegin(e) { 
        alert(e.element.textContent + " is Selected"); 
public ActionResult Index() 
            object format1 = new 
                text = "Paragraph", 
                value = "P" 
            object format2 = new 
                text = "My Paragraph", 
                value = "BlockQuote" 
            object format3 = new 
                text = "Heading 1", 
                value = "H1" 
            object format4 = new 
                text = "Heading 2", 
                value = "H2" 
            ViewBag.types = new 
                width = "40px", 
                types = new[] { format1, format2, format3, format4 } 
            return View(); 
If the newly added item has any predefined format , you can mention that format in value. Else if you want to perform custom action , then you can get the selected item through actionBegin event of RTE and perform required action there. Now the items will be displayed in toolbar as shown below 
We have attached a sample for your reference which can be downloaded from the below link 
Please let us know if you require any further assistance on this.
