htmlarea 3.0 - what do you want to see?


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.

Personally, I don't really think that most people are concerned with being able to use the tool in Netscape and other browsers. I think that so much more can be done with this is a much shorter period of time if you just stick with IE, not to mention the powerfulness of IE's capablities. Here are 2 things that I think can really enhance this tool:
1.) The ability to create nested lists Visually, and to be able to create different types of lists (roman numeral, alphabetical, etc). I know this can be done using the htmlview mode but the people who will be using this tool generally won't know HTML, and nested lists are used frequently. Editing them in the code itself can be too confusing for people who don't deal with HTML regularly.

2.) The ability to maintain the cursor position when switching from WYSIWYG view to code view and vice versa.

Also, I'm willing to help out (for free) in the continued development of this tool if you are interested.
I frequently create content management interfaces, and this tool really helps the end user.

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to make suggestions. You guys are great!

Support for browsers other than IE 5.5 on Windows would be our number one request. Since I don't know a lot about the DOM as it relates to Gecko based browsers -vs- MS products, I don't know what is possible.

But if there is a way to develop htmlArea 3 to work in Mozilla/Netscape, IE, or Safari on the Mac then it would make a huge difference to us and a lot of our business clients that have been switching to Macs (and loving it!!). Cool

htmlArea is awesome. Dom rewrite sounds wonderful, but I bet browser compatibility will still prove a nightmare for the developers.

I'd like to see the Cut, Copy, Paste, Quote, Reply and Code buttons in this editor added to the next release, or are they already available?

My number one request would be a Spell Checker. A file manager integration would be interesting...

Thanks for the excellent work so far.

I used htmlArea for email purposes and webpage updates. For my users to use the email better, I'd really like to see the ability to hit the tab button from a 'subject' field and come immediately to the edit area.

I know in Yahoo!Mail's editor, you can tab directly in to your message field. Hitting the tab starts with the menu buttons on my webpage. Is there someway we could set a tabindex or something for this?

Thanks!

I've got an idea for the Word cleaning and other types of cleaning that some people have requested. You could have a "clean HTML" button, that upon clicking opens a popup that contains various checkboxes of options to clean (such as " remove DIV tags", remove <DIR> tags, remove <P> tags, remove <FONT> tags, "tags to lowercase", "attributes single quoted",". Then upon clicking a button on the popup such as "Clean Now", it will call a function on the calling page and pass in parameters based on what they have selected (or just call separate functions based on what they have selected). Here's a function with a few reg. expressions I wrote to clean up pasting from Word.

function cleanHtml(htmlIn){
var htmlOut=htmlIn.replace(/<DIR>/gi,'');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<\/DIR>/gi,'');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<DIV([^>]*)>/gi,'');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<\/DIV>/gi,'');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<(P)([^>]*)>/gi,'<br>');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<\/(P)>/gi,'');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<(FONT)([^>]*)>/gi,'');
htmlOut=htmlOut.replace(/<\/(FONT)>/gi,'');
return htmlOut;
}
-- the g modifier is for global (replace all) and the i is for case-insensitive (match and replace upper and lowercase tags - or mixed case).

I've done this because I don't want any of these tags in the CMS system I have built because the overall page formatting is already there. The only formatting I want to allow is <br> and &nbsp; , but a large function with select cases, or elseif statements could be used to make a function that works based on user selections.
