Xinha content not saved(submitted) when javascript event used to submit form

Reported by: Brice Burgess Owned by: gogo
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Xinha Core Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


If the form with the Xinha editor is submitted via a javascript event handler (ie. a <select> tag with onChange="document.form.submit()" ), any content entered into the Xinha editor is lost -- doesn't show up in the HTTP POST/GET vars.

Here's a example in PHP -- obviously the locations of htmlarea.js and config.js needs to be changed to match your example. Type some text in the body, and submit it with the form button. You'll notice what you typed shows up in POST. Now type some things in & submit the form via the select element. body in POST will be empty.

This was tested under Firefox and IE6

<script type="text/javascript">

_editor_url = "/eclipse/bMail/inc/xinha/";
_editor_lang = "en";

<script type="text/javascript" src="/eclipse/bMail/inc/xinha/htmlarea.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/eclipse/bMail/inc/xinha/config.js"></script>

<form name="form" id="form" action="<?php echo htmlspecialchars($_SERVERPHP_SELF?); ?>" method="POST">

<textarea name="body" id="body"></textarea>


<select name="select" onChange="document.form.submit()">

<option value="1">Change</option>
<option value="2">Me To</option>
<option value="3">Submit Form</option>


<input type="submit" name="button" value="submit type button">
