The natives are restless for... BETA 3 ?


The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

The natives are restless for... BETA 3 ? Can't Post

Hello,

I've been using htmlArea v2.0 (beta2) since it's release on
Sept. 11, 2002, and it's great!!

I'm wondering if any progress has been made on bug fixes for the
following 2 bugs: ( BETA3 ? )

=======================================================================
1) Image Handling Bug (on Resize)
=======================================================================

See the following Forum posts:

- http://www.interactivetools.com/iforum/Open_Source_C3/htmlArea_v1.x_F14/MSIE6_Bug_and_a_little_tip_P3319/
- http://www.interactivetools.com/iforum/C2/F14/P2950 (see post 3248)


=======================================================================
2) JavaScript errors in Mozilla/Netscape 7
=======================================================================

In Mozilla 1.0.1, if you load a page containing htmlArea
(for example, http://www.interactivetools.com/staff/dave/htmlarea/),
you get the standard <TEXTAREA> rather than htmlArea, but there are
(unseen) Javascript errors on the page.

To view the htmlArea JavaScript errors in Mozilla:,

1) In the Location Bar, type the following, and hit Enter:

http://www.interactivetools.com/staff/dave/htmlarea/

2) Then, in the Location Bar, type the following, and hit Enter:

javascript: (with the colon)

I've been testing the new WYSIWYG composer for Mozilla/Netscape,
Composite ( http://composite.mozdev.org/ ), and it works great in
pages containing htmlArea.

Composite is:

- Simple to use.
- Provides a simple to understand interface.
- Edit/saves right from the <TEXTAREA> box using the wysiwig Mozilla Composer module.
- Tested on Mozilla 1.0.1, Mozilla 1.1, Mozilla-trunk and Netscape 7.

To install Composite in Mozilla/Netscape 7, visit:

http://composite.mozdev.org/installation.html

Mozilla users who open a page containing htmlArea can edit the
standard <TEXTAREA> using Composite, but I was wondering if the
JavaScript errors had been squelched?

Cheers,

Steve

Steve, Thanks for the summary of the issues you think are most critical. I'm working on an update today and hope to resolve most of those.

On the mozilla front, the rumor is Mozilla 1.3 may have some new features that will allow us to make htmlArea actually work in mozilla. Needless to say, we're very excited about this and following the mozilla development progress very closely.
