Show toolbar only when focused


1. We are wondering if it is possible to add feature to show toolbar only when RichTextEditor control has focus. It is simillar solution to inline mode but not the same.
Then RTE will look like standard input until user clicks inside it.

Example below:

2. Second thing: is it possible to put toolbar at the bottom of RichTextEditor control?

Best regards

Hi Konrad, 
Greetings from Syncfusion support.  
We have validated you reported queries. We can achieve it in application end by rendering the RichTextEditor component without toolbar on initially, enable the toolbar on component focus event and disable the toolbar on component blur event. We need to config the toolbarSettings.enable the property to enable or disable the toolbar. 
To show the toolbar at bottom, we need to add the below styles. 
.e-rte-toolbar.e-control.e-toolbar { 
  position: absolute; 
  bottom: 0px; 
  border-top: inherit; 
  border-bottom: inset; 
For your reference, we have created a sample, please get it from the below link  
Please find code example is given below, 
    <ejs-richtexteditor ref="rteObj":toolbarSettings="toolbarSettings" :focus="onFocus" :blur="onBlur"> 
import Vue from "vue"; 
import { RichTextEditorPluginToolbarLinkImageCountHtmlEditorQuickToolbarTable } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-richtexteditor"; 
export default Vue.extend({ 
  data: function() { 
    return { 
      toolbarSettings: { 
        enable: false, 
        enableFloating: false, 
        type: "MultiRow" 
  methods: { 
    onBlur: function(e) { 
      this.$refs.rteObj.ej2Instances.toolbarSettings.enable = false; 
    onFocus: function(e) { 
      this.$refs.rteObj.ej2Instances.toolbarSettings.enable = true; 
  provide: { 
    richtexteditor: [ ToolbarLinkImageCountHtmlEditorQuickToolbarTable ]
