RTWedit is a WYSIWYG (X)HTML pop-up editor written as a JavaScript library and is designed to be plugged into Web forms. It has a familiar word processor-style visual interface that allows users to mark up text in textarea boxes without having to know about tags. It has the following features:

  • Configurable buttons - you can choose what markup you need per text area
  • Configurable pulldown selection list for headings and normal paras.
  • You can compare WYSIWYG and source code views side by side.
  • Configurable popup window dimensions
  • Resizable inline frame: this resizes automatically to match the resizing of the popup window
  • Preview only for non-supported browsers
  • Extensible

System Requirements and License

RTWedit deploys rich text editing via DesignMode as supported by Mozilla 1.3+ and Netscape 7.1+ via Midas API and Internet Explorer 5+ (MS Windows only). It is an enhancement of IEWedit, which it supersedes as that was developed for IE only. If you need to support earlier versions of Mozilla and Netscape, then you can make use of NetWedit, which is another tool with a similar interface, but much less functionality.

RTWedit is essentially just a single JavaScript file - rtwedit.js. It is provided as open source software under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). This means that you are free to use and modify it, provided that what you derive remains subject to the same license.
