Question/Suggestion - Editor with no toolbar, readonly

Hello team;

Let's say, depending on the user's authorization level, we just want to show the content of the Editor as "Read-Only" with no toolbar. So it will basically looks like an HTML rendered content to them to read.

Is it possible to do so with Editor or can we add a feature to hide the toolbar and make it read only?

If not, what's the best way and lightest way to show the content as read-only on different devices based medias query?

Hello Ben,

The editor offers the Enabled parameter for making it read only too

<TelerikEditor Enabled="false"></TelerikEditor>

Otherwise, a read only state would be a <div> with the content, so it does not make sense to make a special feature in the editor for something that's an if-block in the markup.

@if (hasPermissions)
    <TelerikEditor Enabled="false" @bind-Value="@TheContent"></TelerikEditor>
    //if you want to show as HTML encoded

    // if you are OK with just renderingthe HTML unencoded
    <div>@( new MarkupString(TheContent) )</div>

    bool hasPermissions { get; set; }
    string TheContent { get; set; } = "<p>lorem ipsum</p>";
