The API is (a subset of) the W3C DOM, Range, and Event APIs. The API lets you read and edit the XHTML in the control; interact with the end user's selection; and install event handlers which interact with the toolbar, keyboard and mouse events.

As well as User Interfaces for the end user, ModelText's HTML edit control exposes various APIs which let the application interact with it.

Standard browsers' main APIs are JavaScript, running inside the browser; whereas the ModelText control exposes native .NET APIs to the .NET application which embeds it:

See the APIs for the HTML Edit Control documentation, for an in-depth introduction and reference.

There are also Sample programs, included with the Download, which show examples of how to use the APIs.
