Problems with installation


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.

Change your width specification on the textarea to 100%

ie... <TEXTAREA STYLE="width: 100%; height: 250px" NAME="ta"></TEXTAREA>

Unfortunately, the generated htmlarea doesn't seem to conform to the specified width of the textarea.

Thank you, Rick, but nothing changes.

<tr><td>TEXT1</td><td><textarea id="text1" name="text1" STYLE="width: 100%; height: 250px"></textarea></td></tr><script type="text/javascript" defer="1">HTMLArea.replace('text1');</script>

And I cant put the cursor in my textarea.
Be happy.

Is your javascript code inside the table? I had a problem the other day where I was getting unexpected results when my javascript code to generate the htmlarea was inside a table containing the textarea. It didn't actually affect me in Mozilla but did wierd stuff in IE. I had to move the generation code to the very end of the document, outside all tables.

Other than that... I'm at a loss. :)

Yes, it is inside the table. I have read about this problem at http://www.interactivetools.com/forum/gforum.cgi?post=14919;search_string=this._ta_size;t=search_engine#14919 . I make the same :

if (textarea.offsetWidth == 0){
this._ta_size = {
w: 550,
h: 250
};
}else{
this._ta_size = {
w: textarea.offsetWidth,
h: textarea.offsetHeight
};
}

Nothing changes. I don`t want to refuse of using my tables.
Be happy.

I just posted a reply over there. It may not solve your problem :) since your textarea is not disappearing... but it certainly might solve theirs.

I didn't have to abandon my tables, I just had to move the javascript generation code to the very end of the document, outside of the tables.

I just tried nesting the textarea inside a table in order to restrict the width of the toolbars and such, and it worked great. So my textarea is actually nested within two tables.

Sure, I copied out the pure HTML (it's a php application) and put it into a freely accessible area of my web site.
