                                  • Is it possible to manually (via client-side code) insert a Mention element into the dxHtmlEditor?

                                    My scenario is:
                                    I'm using the Mentions functionality to show a list of previously uploaded files, attached to a record. The mentions template includes an img tag with the src pointing to the selected attachment... this works quite well.
                                    I'd like the user to be able to select a new document when editing the content of the Html editor and have the file uploaded, and then the mention created automatically for that attachment, as if they selected it manually from the mentions popup list.

                                Hi,

                                Yes, you can use the insertEmbed method to insert a mention in the editor programmatically. For example: https://codepen.io/Doka/pen/pozgYjB. I hope this information helps.

                                Thanks,
                                Alessandro
