#89 closed defect (wontfix)

Idea + Patch: call events of textarea

Reported by: Niko <ns@…> Owned by: niko
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Xinha Core Version:
Severity: normal Keywords:


in my cms we have a table with several Xinhas. If the content of onw xinha was changed the row sould be marked (using JavaScript?).

my idea is now that i could set a onKeypress for the textarea and xinha calls this function.

   var editor = this;
   var keyEvent = (HTMLArea.is_ie && ev.type == "keydown") || (!HTMLArea.is_ie && ev.type == "keypress");

+  //call events of textarea
+  if(typeof editor._textArea['on'+ev.type] == "function") {
+    editor._textArea['on'+ev.type]();
+  }
   if(HTMLArea.is_gecko && keyEvent && ev.ctrlKey &&  this._unLink && this._unlinkOnUndo)
     if(String.fromCharCode(ev.charCode).toLowerCase() == 'z')

i don't know if this is the right place for this call and i don't know if this will work in all browsers (tested it in IE6 and FF) - don't know why the (HTMLArea.is_ie && ev.type == "keydown") || (!HTMLArea.is_ie && ev.type == "keypress"); is needed...

Hmm. It would be better as (a trivial) plugin maybe, so that it can be done without having those comparisons every keypress if it's not required.

If you make a plugin, feel free to add it to the subversion.

niko, perhaps this should be rolled into the CharacterCount? plugin that is in development, it's kind of the same sort of area?

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

actually i wrote allready a plugin but didn't post it here as its very specific for our cms and is actually only one line of code *g*

CheckOnKeyPress.prototype.onKeyPress = function(ev) {
   //call some external functions...

i will close this bug for now...
