Saving on browser back or refresh


How can I save the content of the editor when somebody clicks the browser back or refresh. Currently, when I click outside of the component it saves the new value, however that is not true for the mentioned cases.

Hi Krasimir, 
Greetings from Syncfusion support. 
We have validated your requirement and its default functionality of browser. We can achieve this requirement from application end by calling In-place Editor - save() public method in JavaScript window.onbeforeunload event callback as follows. 
Note: onbeforeunload trigger when leaving from current page (refresh too). 
Add index.js file with below code blocks and save it in wwwroot folder of your application. Then add this JS file reference into _host.cshtml 
window.onbeforeunload = function () { 
    var editorObj = document.getElementById('TextEditor').ej2_instances[0]; 
    if (editorObj.enableEditMode) { // To ensure whether editor in ediable mode 
        editorObj.save(); // Save the editor current value 
We have prepared sample for your reference, get it from below link
