Show the code first

Sometimes, you need to show the HTML source code of Redactor first, instead of the visual layer. To do this, use the showSource option.

<textarea id="#content"></textarea>

// Call Redactor
$R('#content', { showSource: true });

ShowSource mode will not be enabled if:

  • Redactor launched for inline tag or with inline option;
  • Redactor launched in Click-to-edit mode;
  • The html/source button is turned off in the toolbar.

Please, see the example.
