# Registering a Custom Button

The following JavaScript code can be used to register a custom button as a command.

oc.richEditorRegisterButton('insertCustomThing', {
    title: 'Insert Something',
    icon: '<i class="icon-star"></i>',
    undo: true,
    focus: true,
    refreshOnCallback: true,
    callback: function () {
        this.html.insert('<strong>My Custom Thing!</strong>');

Then add the button to the default collection.

oc.richEditorButtons.splice(0, 0, 'insertCustomThing');

When registering the JavaScript, it should come after the assets registered by the Rich Editor. You may extend the RichEditor class constructor to achieve this.

\Backend\FormWidgets\RichEditor::extend(function($controller) {
