A directory of browser-based WYSIWYG editors


Home: htmlArea 2: htmlArea 2 & 3 archive (read only): htmlArea v2.0:
Adding a block of HTML Code

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.

Adding a block of HTML Code Can't Post

I love the HTMLAREA product and use it everyday. I have a standard snippet of code that I use quite frequently and would like to setup a button to insert this code in the HTMLAREA. The snippet of code should be placed at the point of cursor without overlaying the existing contents of htmlarea . I created a button which uses the editor_insertHTML function. to insert the code, but because of the special characters in the block of code below, I am unable to get it to work. I am open to any ideas you might have.
<input type=button value='Click Here'
onclick='"" +

Thanks, Steve

CoolOK... I figured it out. Here is what I came up with:

var myText = '<input type=button value=' + '"' + 'Click Here' + '"' + 'onclick=' + "'" + '' + '(' + '"' + '' + '"' + ' + escape' + '(' + '"' + 'Place Link Here' + '"' + '))' + ';' + "'" + '>';
editor_insertHTML(objname, myText);
