What information is submitted on "wympupdate"?

Postby leon945 on Tue Sep 11, 2007 2:54 pm

I'm working on an app with a webspeed app server, and using progress (4gl) as the business logic.

Apparently, it's a bit difficult to obtain a request and just print it out in 4gl (unlike php, asp, jsp), so i don't have a way of knowing what information WYMeditor is sending..
can anyone help me with this?

thank you in advance

WYMeditor itself doesn't send anything (apart from dynamically loading some JS files using ajax calls).

While editing, the textarea (typically, but you can use other HTML elements) isn't updated in real-time, so you need to call wym.update(), which updates the textarea's value.
For your convenience, there's a system which will do the trick for you: simply put the class 'wymupdate' on your submit button, and the textarea will be updated when you click on it.
If you prefer, you can use the postInit option like:
Code: Select all
  postInit: function(wym) {
            //postInit is executed after WYMeditor initialization
            //'wym' is the current WYMeditor instance
            $('#myelement').click( function() {
               //update the textarea
               //do something, e.g. send the content
               //via an ajax call
               $.post( 'mywebpage', { html: wym.xhtml() } );
