Work in Angular Summer Note

“summernote” is my angular module name .so I have added the “ng-app”

  1. <div class="container body-content" ng-app="summernote">  
  2.         @RenderBody()  
  3. </div>  

Html Code

  1. <div class="panel panel-default" ng-controller="FormInputController" >  
  3.         <form method="get" action="/" novalidate="" class="form-horizontal">  
  4.             <fieldset>  
  5.                 <div class="form-group">  
  7.                     <div class="col-sm-12">  
  8.                         <summernote ng-model="htmlContent" height="280"></summernote>  
  10.                         <summernote airmode="" ng-model="htmlContent" class="well reader-block"></summernote>  
  11.                     </div>  
  12.                 </div>  
  13.             </fieldset>  
  14.         </form>  
  15. </div>

If you put markups in the directive, the markups used as initial text.

  1. <summernote><span style="font-weight: bold;">This is initial text.</span></summernote>  


Summer note’s options can be specified as attribute


<summernote height="300"></summernote>


<summernote focus></summernote>

Angular Controller

Initiate the variable


  1.     .module(' summernote ')  
  2.     .controller('FormInputController', FormInputController);  
  3. function FormInputController($scope) {  
  5.     $scope.htmlContent = '<h2>Hi</h2><p> Your are in angular summer note session</p>';  
  7. }
