how can I works with sql and htmlarea

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.

how can I works with sql and htmlarea Can't Post

Hello, I need your help, I´m making a form, and in this I request for a text, this text is a htmlarea, and I don´t find how I can send this information to a sql database, I don´t understand what editor.js return or what variable I have to save in the database for I can get the same information in another page. The name of the textcamp doesn´t have the information i had submit.

One way to do it is to create a separate ASP page (e.g. ExecuteQuery.asp) where you obtain the elements that was passed over as a form element and then run the queries there.

E.g. if your form method is "get", you will notice that the htmlArea information is just passed onto the destination page just like a regular form object.
