Save images as base64 strings

Thread ID:





145045 Jun 4,2019 07:27 AM UTC Jun 7,2019 06:17 AM UTC ASP.NET Core - EJ 2 3

Asked On June 4, 2019 07:27 AM UTC


I am using EJ 2 v17.1.0.49 (nuget package).

Is there an easy way to convert all images to base64 strings (without any blob urls)?
(That the image's source property is the base64 string, which is visible in the RTE.value property)

Kind regards

Hi Phil, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products. 

You can easily convert the blob URL image into Base64 image in Rich Text Editor content using actionComplete event.  As per behavior, we have created a blob URL for the image and set the `src` property of <img> tag in the Rich Text Editor content.   In actionComplete event, we have converted the base64 image and set into image src attribute.  Please find the below code for your reference. 


<ejs-richtexteditor id="default" actionComplete="actionComplete"></ejs-richtexteditor> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    function actionComplete(args) {  // Triggered when every action is completed 
        if (args.requestType == "Image") {  // Check image actionComplete 
            imgelement = args.elements[0]; 
            toBase64(imgelement.src, function (dataUrl) { 
                imgelement.setAttribute('src', dataUrl) // Set converted base64 image into RTE 
    function toBase64(url, callback) { 
        var httpRequest = new XMLHttpRequest(); 
        httpRequest.onload = function () { 
            var fileReader = new FileReader(); 
            fileReader.onloadend = function () { // Triggered each time the rendering operation complete 
            fileReader.readAsDataURL(httpRequest.response); // Read the content of the specified file or Blob 
        httpRequest.open('GET', url); 
        httpRequest.responseType = 'blob'; 

In above sample, we have converted the blob URL image into Base64 image and got the Rich Text Editor value when click the external button.
