Upgrade Rich Text Editor to a New Version

  • 2 minutes to read

The RichEdit product is available as NuGet and npm packages. You should upgrade the package references after you install a newer version of DevExpress. To do this, follow the instructions below:

Update NuGet Packages

Use the Project Converter to update your project and NuGet packages.

Hotfix Update

Download and install the hotfix. You can find recent resources and packages locally after the hotfix is installed. Note that you do not need to update a NuGet package to use a hot fix.

Update npm Packages

  1. Update the version of dependent packages in the package.json file.
"dependencies": {
    "devextreme": "21.1.4",
    "devexpress-richedit": "21.1.4"
  1. Right-click the package.json file and select Restore Packages.

Hotfix Update

  • Use the 21.1-next tag to access the latest RichEdit package, for instance, npm i devexpress-richedit@21.1-next
  • Use the 21.1-stable tag to access the latest stable RichEdit package, for instance, npm i devexpress-richedit@21.1-stable

Execute the following command for a list of available tags: npm view devexpress-richedit

If You Have No Access to npm/NuGet

Recent resources and packages are located on your local machine after a DevExpress build is installed.

Client-Side Resources

Use the resource files from the following directory instead of scripts and styles from the node_modules directory:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\DevExpress Demos 21.1\Components\ASP.NET\CS\AspNetCoreDemos.RichEdit\wwwroot\dx-aspnetcore-richedit

NuGet Packages

Switch to the following source (available as a NuGet feed in Visual Studio) to upgrade NuGet packages:

C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 21.1\Components\System\Components\packages
