Toggle between standard textarea 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.

Toggle between standard textarea and htmlarea... Can't Post

I have a webmail application that I would like to integrate htmlarea into. It currently uses the M$ execCommand functionality in some home grown scripts, and works reasonably well.

I like the cross browser compatibility of v3.0 and am beginning the implementation.

One feature that I would like to retain is the ability for the user to toggle back and forth between the normal textarea and the HTML Editor. Most users just need to send off a note and don't want to have any html tags muddying up the water.

So, my question is, once I execute the HTMLArea(textarea, config) routine, is there anyway to go back to a standard textarea? or is there another way of doing what I want to do?

Paul

I'm not sure to understand your question. Isn't the "toggle to HTML mode button" supposed to do that?

OK, I found the button in question.

I need to set the button to text on entry, but more importantly, when I get to my cgi I need to know if I have html, or plain text, so that I can set my mime headers correctly.

Have any easy way of telling whether the output contains html?

Paul
