I'm looking for something like this, but for Angular


I want to enable a TextEditor, with the option to accept drag & drop variables in the text. This will be to create a layout, I want to see the variables like a chips (angular control) inside the text

Something like the attached image

Thank you

Hi Drio, 
Greetings from Syncfusion support. 
We have validated your requirement and have prepared sample as you have expected. In this sample we have provided drag and drop support for selected text / Element which can drop into textarea of RTE as chips. Also, We have bound drop event to the editor.  
Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.

Hi Drio,  
Thanks for your update. 
In the previously shared sample, the dragable support for the listview item is not enabled. So, it works after you have selected the required text and then drag and drop it. 
Now in the modified sample, we have enabled the draggable support for listview item by passing draggable: true in htmlAttibutes through dataSource. Now It works as expected. Please find the code changes in below,  
Code example: 
public data: Object[] = [ 
      "text": "Hennessey Venom", 
      "id": "list-01", 
      "htmlAttributes": { draggable: true } 
For your convenience we have prepared a sample based on above code snippet, 

Please let us know if we have misunderstood anything as incorrect.
