Wow! This works great!

The only thing I can think of to improve it would be if the cursor was focused in the same place when you switch modes, or if you had highlighted something, it would be highlighted in code view, and vice versa. Even so, what an improvement!

It only seems to work one way in FireFox?, from HTML mode to WYSIWYG mode. In IE it works both ways.

comment:3 Changed 14 years ago by ray

  • Component changed from Documentation to Xinha Core
  • Owner changed from akaEdge to gogo

Though it's not perfect, committed this in rev [703]

mharrisonline, your ideas are good but I honestly don't know how it would best be done :(

rev [706]: fixed an error that occured in IE if an image ("Control") was selected when switching from WYSIWYG to text

comment:8 Changed 14 years ago by ray

rev [707]: now using different control characters in IE and GEcko, because the one I used in the first place (String.fromCharCode(173)) was expanded to ­ in IE when using the (former) GetHtml? plugin. The one that is now used in IE on the other hand doesn't work in Gecko...

rev [712]: In case the cursor is inside a link automatically created from a url by IE the cc also appears in the url and we have to strip it out additionally

comment:10 Changed 14 years ago by ray

rev [754]: There seems to be something going on beyond my understanding in fullpage mode in gecko. Catched the error

In FF ( Mac) this works only one way, from WYSIWYG to html. I'm pretty sure the problem is that focus is not being set correctly, for the following reasons:

  • If I put an alert() anywhere in the "else" branch of findCC() in Gecko.js, it works. I think this does not suggest a timing problem, but rather clicking OK in the alert sets the focus.
  • Without the alert(), after switching back to WYSIWYG, if I press 'tab' one or sometimes more times (depends on the page content) it starts working. I think this is the tab stepping through the form elements until it gets to the xinha iframe.

However, I have not managed to figure out how to fix it. It should be just a 'focus()' method applied to something, and I'm probably missing something simple, but nothing I have tried so far works. Any ideas?
