opposite of wymeditor()?

Postby ccurvey on Fri Apr 24, 2009 12:36 pm

Perhaps this is in the docs and I'm just being thick, but I'd appreciate a pointer. Let's say I have the following HTML

<div class="editme">
This is something old.

I know that I can use $('editme').wymeditor() to convert all my textareas to editors. That's great. I edit the text, I save the text via and Ajax call. All is well.

Now how do I convert the editors back into plain divs?

Just hide the editor using CSS, and then grab the editor content and insert it into your DIV.
Code: Select all
var conten = $.wymeditors(0).html();
$(<editor selector>).hide();
$(<your div>).html(content);
