For one of the requirements I need to send email from a visualforce page. Email body is expected to be entered in rich text area input(similar to salesforce object rich text area fields). Due to some limitation I can not bind some richtextarea field on user interface to show an editor.

Is it possible to achieve salesforce richtextarea element look without field binding. If not, What would be other options to display same considering I can not go for some paid/licensed editor for same.

you can use below tag to display richtext area in visualforce page.

<apex:inputtextarea label="RichText"  richtext="true" value="{!body}" 
     id="Body" cols="100" rows="15"/>

Try to like this :

<apex:inputField value="{!Account.RichText__c}"/>

  • Why the downvote? Using an apex:inputField with a Rich Text field seems like a valid workaround for me. – Jose Jan 4 '18 at 18:34
