Loading up a file inside the editor

Postby Casperin on Sun Jan 27, 2008 1:16 am

How do I load up a file and place it in the editor? I see the
Code: Select all
html: '<p>Hello, World!<\/p>',
but I don't know how to replace that with the content of another file.

Great editor though. I absolutely love it (once I learn how to do this anyway).. :-)

Are you using some server side technology to write the page or just html/js?

you could use the ajax functions of jquery to get the contents of the file and put it in a variable.

wymHTML = $get('someFile', startWYM());

function startWYM(){
html: wymHTML

But if you have some server-side, it may be prudent to get the file from there, as you reduce the number of server requests.

I have a similar problem.

I started out using WYMEditor to write to a file called wym.txt, using fwrite in php.

Now, I'm trying to find out how to load that file back into wymeditor for editing.

I tried the above code, but it didn't seem to work, maybe I'm doing something wrong?

An example file might be helpful :wink:
