                                                initOnClick={true}
                                              />
    
                                              {/* Editor 2 */}
                                              <FroalaEditor
                                                model="<p>Editor 2</p>"
                                                onModelChange={(newModel) => {
                                                  console.log('Editor 2 Updated:', newModel);
                                                }}
                                                initOnClick={true}
                                              />
                                            
                                          );
                                        };
            
    
                                        

    With this setup, you're not just smoothly adding multiple Froala editors, but also making them start up faster when the user interacts. This doesn't just make your app work better but also makes it feel smoother and more responsive when you're dealing with lots of editors.

  5. Adding Multiple Content Blocks

    Embarking on the journey to create a robust page builder, the ability to proficiently manage multiple content blocks becomes a foundation of your application's versatility.

    In this section, we'll walk you through the seamless integration and handling of multiple content blocks within your React application.

                                     
                                  // Adding multiple content blocks
                                    const ContentBlocksManager = () => {
                                      // State to manage content blocks
                                      const [contentBlocks, setContentBlocks] = useState([
                                        { id: 1, content: '<p>Content Block 1</p>' },
                                        { id: 2, content: '<p>Content Block 2</p>' },
                                      ]);
    
                                      // Function to add a new content block
                                                                        const addContentBlock = () => {
                                        const newBlock = { id: contentBlocks.length + 1, content: '<p>New Content Block</p>' };
                                        setContentBlocks([...contentBlocks, newBlock]);
                                      };
    
                                      return (
                                         <div>
                                          {/* Render FroalaEditor for each content block */}
                                          {contentBlocks.map((block) => (
                                            < FroalaEditor
                                              key={block.id}
                                              model={block.content}
                                              onModelChange={(newModel) => {
                                                // Update content in the state
                                                const updatedBlocks = contentBlocks.map((b) =>
                                                  b.id === block.id ? { ...b, content: newModel } : b
                                                );
                                                setContentBlocks(updatedBlocks);
                                              }}
                                            />
                                          ))}
                                          
                                          {/* Button to add a new content block */}
                                          < button onClick={addContentBlock}>Add Content Block</button>
                                         </div>
                                      );
                                    };
            
    
                                        

    With this implementation, you're dynamically rendering FroalaEditor components for each content block, allowing users to edit and manage multiple blocks effortlessly. The "Add Content Block" button facilitates the addition of new blocks, creating a flexible and user-friendly environment for constructing diverse content within your React-based page builder.

  6. Getting Text Content of the Editor

    In certain scenarios, the need to retrieve and manipulate the text content of the Froala editor becomes essential. This section offers insights into effectively obtaining the text content from the editor.

                                     
    
                                        // Getting text content from the Froala editor
                                        const TextContentReader = () => {
                                          // State to manage text content
                                          const [textContent, setTextContent] = useState('');
    
                                          return (
                                            <div>
                                              {/* FroalaEditor capturing editable content */}
                                              <FroalaEditor
                                                model="<p>Editable Content</p>"
                                                onModelChange={(newModel) => {
                                                  // Update text content in the state
                                                  setTextContent(newModel);
                                                }}
                                              />
                                              
                                              {/* Displaying text content */}
                                              <p>Text Content: {textContent}</p>
                                            </div>
                                          );
                                        };
    
                                        

    In this setup, the FroalaEditor component captures editable content, and any changes automatically update the text content in the state. The "Text Content" paragraph you see dynamically shows the current text content. This makes it easy for you to get and display text content from the Froala editor in your React application. This approach lets you get the content and integrate it into your application's state for further use or display.

  7. Making Controlled Components with Froala

    Controlling Froala components is like being the boss of how they behave. It helps make things more organized and easy to handle in your app. In simple terms, when we say "controlled," it means you get to decide and keep track of how these components work instead of letting Froala do everything on its own.

    In this section, we're going to show you how to take control of three important Froala components: Image, Button, and Link.

    Imagine it like having a remote control for each of these components, where you decide what they show and how they act. This makes your app more reliable and makes sure everything works smoothly.

    Later, we'll give you examples of using this control for the Image, Button, and Link components. It's like teaching them how to dance to your tune, making your app easier to manage, and ensuring everything looks and works just the way you want it to.

    • Adding Froala Image Component to Add Image

      When you're working with images in your application, it's important to be able to add them in a way you can control. Here, we'll show you how to use the Froala Image Component in a controlled way. This gives you the power to easily manage and keep track of the image's web address.

                                       
      
                                          // Controlled Froala Image Component
                                          const ControlledImageComponent = () => {
                                            // State to manage image URL
                                            const [imageUrl, setImageUrl] = useState('');
      
                                            return (
                                               <div>
                                                {/* FroalaEditor for controlled image */}
                                                <FroalaEditor
                                                  model={`<img src="${imageUrl}" alt="Controlled Image" />`}
                                                  onModelChange={(newModel) => {
                                                    // Extract image URL from the model
                                                    const regex = /<img.*?src="(.*?)".*?>/g;
                                                    const match = regex.exec(newModel);
                                                    const newImageUrl = match ? match[1] : '';
                                                    setImageUrl(newImageUrl);
                                                  }}
                                                />
      
                                                {/* Input to enter image URL */}
                                                <input
                                                  type="text"
                                                  placeholder="Enter Image URL"
                                                  value={imageUrl}
                                                  onChange={(e) => setImageUrl(e.target.value)}
                                                />
                                                 </div>
                                                );
                                              };  
      
                                          

      This code makes a special Froala Image Component that you can control. It helps you both view and set the web address of the image. The FroalaEditor remembers the image details, and there's a box where you can type or change the image's web address. This makes adding and handling images in your React application easy and straightforward.

    • Adding Froala Button Component

      Improving your application with interactive buttons is something many people want. In this part, we'll show you how to add the Froala Button Component in a controlled way, making it simple for you to manage and customize button text.

                                       
                                          // Controlled Froala Button Component
                                          const ControlledButtonComponent = () => {
                                            // State to manage button text
                                            const [buttonText, setButtonText] = useState('');
      
                                            return (
                                              <div>
                                                {/* FroalaEditor for controlled button */}
                                                <FroalaEditor
                                                  model={`<button>${buttonText}</button>`}
                                                  onModelChange={(newModel) => {
                                                    // Extract button text from the model
                                                    const regex = /(.*?)<\/button>/g;
                                                    const match = regex.exec(newModel);
                                                    const newButtonText = match ? match[1] : '';
                                                    setButtonText(newButtonText);
                                                  }}
                                                />
      
                                                {/* Input to enter button text */}
                                                <input
                                                  type="text"
                                                  placeholder="Enter Button Text"
                                                  value={buttonText}
                                                  onChange={(e) => setButtonText(e.target.value)}
                                                />
                                                     </div>
                                                    );
                                                  };
      
                                          

      In this code, we've added a Froala Button that you can easily control and customize. The editor keeps track of the button, and the input field lets you type or change the button text. It's a simple and easy way to include and manage buttons in your React application.

    • Adding Froala Link (Anchor) Component

      Adding links, or anchors, is essential for creating a user-friendly and connected interface. In this part, we'll show you how to include the Froala Link Component in a controlled way. This allows you to manage and customize link URLs within your React application easily.

                                       
                                          // Controlled Froala Link Component
                                          const ControlledLinkComponent = () => {
                                            // State to manage link URL

                                                        key={block.id}
                                                        model={block.content}
                                                        onModelChange={(newModel) => {
                                                          // Update content in the state
                                                             const updatedBlocks = contentBlocks.map((b) =>
                                                            b.id === block.id ? { ...b, content: newModel } : b
                                                          );
                                                          setContentBlocks(updatedBlocks);
                                                        }}
                                                      />
                                                    ))}
                                                  </div>
                                                );
                                              };        
      
                                          

      In this code, we've added a controlled Froala Content Blocks component. It helps you easily handle and customize different content blocks. The contentBlocks state keeps a list of blocks shown using a FroalaEditor component. This method ensures an organized and effective way to deal with many content blocks.

    • Adding the Preview Button

      Providing users with a preview option can significantly enhance their content creation experience. In this part, we'll show you how to add a Preview Button to the Controlled Froala Editor. This lets users see a preview of their content before they finish it in your React app.

                                       
      
                                              // Controlled Froala Editor with Preview Button
                                              const EditorWithPreviewButton = () => {
                                                // State to manage editor content
                                                const [content, setContent] = useState('');
      
                                                return (
                                                   <div>
                                                    {/* FroalaEditor for controlled content */}
                                                    < FroalaEditor
                                                      model={content}
                                                      onModelChange={(newModel) => setContent(newModel)}
                                                    />
      
                                                    {/* Button to trigger content preview */}
                                                    <button onClick={() => alert("Preview: " + content)}>Preview</button>
                                                  </div>
                                                );
                                              };      
      
                                          

      In this code, we've added a button labeled "Preview" next to the FroalaEditor component. Clicking this button triggers an alert displaying the editor's current content. You can change how the preview works to fit what your app needs. This way, users can easily and quickly see what their content will look like.
