WYSIWYG or Rich Text Editor in an app?


#1

How can I add a WYSIWYG or Rich Text editor to my app?


#2

There is a control for this in the jqWidgets toolbox:

$399 just to use this control in a commercial app is too expensive.

Do you know of any free solutions?

I did a quick Google search and came up with these:

Thank you James for finding those. I guess I just need to figure out how to integrate them into my app.

John, from my experience, these guys are very good.

I suggest you search the online Wiki and take a look at this:

Hi Guys,

I have been using the datatable editor plugin which has a CKEditor plugin.

I have been struggling getting it working

So I decided to try directly in NSBasic.

I downloaded the creditor.js file
Dragged into the IDE
Added a bootstrap texture (editor1)
Added code CKEDITOR.replace( ‘editor1’ );

I am getting the same error :slight_smile:

ckeditor.js
TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating ‘c[a].dir=c.rtl[a]?“rtl”:“ltr”’).
line 248 column 50

Any of you wizards have any insights.

Cheers

It worked using this

<script src="//cdn.ckeditor.com/4.7.3/standard/ckeditor.js"></script>
<script src="https://cloud.tinymce.com/stable/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=xxxx"></script>

Also the same for the TinyMCE failing by dragging but working by adding the script.
Instead of dragging into the IDE

So theres something amiss somewhere. From searching around I think its to do with paths…
