Note: the color items that are listed in these two color drop-downs are all with default values. If you want to add custom color item to the drop-down, please refer to the sample code listed in next section.
<kettic:PerHtmlEditor runat="server" ID=" PerHtmlEditor1" SkinID="DefaultSetOfTools"
EnableViewState="false" Height="400px">
