Problem initializing WYMeditor in dynamic DIV

Postby mikenshmirtz on Wed Feb 16, 2011 6:22 pm

When I load the sample locally (http://localhost/js/wymeditor/examples/01-basic.html), everything looks perfect.

When I load the sample into an existing div, the page loads but just shows a plain textarea:
Code: Select all
$(document).ready(function() {
  $("#cms_edit").load('/js/wymeditor/examples/01-basic.html');  // load the same exact file that works into a div
})


I've even replaced the jquery call to load from googleapis.com, where I already load it, to ensure there is no conflict from multiple jquery instances:
Code: Select all
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js"></script>


The div that I'm loading the content into is nested in the page as such:
html > body > div#adminmenu_top.ui-tabs > div#ui-tabs-1.ui-tabs-panel > div#cms_edit

Any help is greatly appreciated. I really like the functionality of this editor and would like to deploy this to my team.

It seems jquery.wymeditor.min.js needs to be loaded in the head section, so loading it via AJAX is a no go. I just threw the call in the main page head for now and it seems to work (though all the icons are stacked vertically, I imagine that will be a relatively easy fix for me.)

So everything seemed pretty perfect until I realized the textarea content is no longer being submitted with the form. The textarea submits the content that was in it when the page loaded... no changes. What gives? :?:

It seems I need to ask the question before I figure out the answer for myself. It seems I have to manually make a call to update the instance when I want to submit the form. (If there was some documentation online somewhere, I could probably figure out how to fix this the right way as opposed to this hack.)

Anyway, in case it helps anyone else, I just added this to my button binding:
Code: Select all
$.each(WYMeditor.INSTANCES, function() { this.update(); });
