Add this in your config to get spell checker

Auto spell checker.

CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function( config ) {

Re: How set template.

Hey kopecldz

I assume you are not using the editor with a model or it would be populated automatically.

Most likely this will do it for you:

$this->widget('ext.editMe.widgets.ExtEditMe', array(
    'value'=>'put your template code here',

Re: CKEditor 4.0.2 update & CKEditor 4.1

Hey Gevorg and Chris Backhouse

Thank you very much for this temporary workaround. Since editMe 2.1 was updated with CKEditor 4.1.1 this is not needed anymore.

CKEditor 4.1

Need to change the run function in ExtEditMe.php as follows:-

public function run() {
        // Register JavaScript files
        Yii::app() -> clientScript -> registerCoreScript('jquery');
        Yii::app() -> clientScript -> registerScriptFile(self::$_ckeAssetUrl . '/' . md5(self::$_ckeAssetUrl) . '.js');
        Yii::app() -> clientScript -> registerScriptFile(self::$_ckeAssetUrl . '/ckeditor.js');
        // REMOVED for 4.1 Yii::app() -> clientScript -> registerScriptFile(self::$_ckeAssetUrl . '/adapters/jquery.js');
        // Generate textarea
        $nameId = $this -> resolveNameID();
        $this -> htmlOptions['id'] = $nameId[1];
            // ADD for 4.1 Class='ckeditor'
        $this -> htmlOptions['class'] = 'ckeditor';
        if ($this -> hasModel()) {
            echo CHtml::activeTextArea($this -> model, $this -> attribute, $this -> htmlOptions);
        } else {
            echo CHtml::textArea($this -> name, $this -> value, $this -> htmlOptions);
        // Load CKEditor
        $jquerySelector = CJavaScript::encode('#' . $this -> htmlOptions['id']);
        $ckeConfig = CJavaScript::encode($this -> _ckeGenerateConfig());
        Yii::app() -> clientScript -> registerScript('editMe_' . $this -> htmlOptions['id'], 'jQuery(' . $jquerySelector . ').ckeditor(' . $ckeConfig . ');', 2);

CKEditor 4.0.2 update

Works perfect with CKEditor 4.0.2. Just rename old folder in "vendors" folder from "CKEditor" to "_CKEditor" and paste new CKEditor in there with name "CKEditor". After copy "adapters" folder from "_CKEditor" and paste it in new "CKEditor" folder. Clean assets and refresh:)

Default cellpadding, cellspacing, border for a table

Hi, thanks for your previous advices.

I've another question to ask. Where and how can I set up configuration like these?

Thank you very much

EDIT: I've solved placing the code

CKEDITOR.on('dialogDefinition', function( ev ) {
  var dialogName = ev.data.name;
  var dialogDefinition = ev.data.definition;
  if(dialogName === 'table') {
    var infoTab = dialogDefinition.getContents('info');
    var cellSpacing = infoTab.get('txtCellSpace');
    cellSpacing['default'] = "5";
    var cellPadding = infoTab.get('txtCellPad');
    cellPadding['default'] = "5";
    var border = infoTab.get('txtBorder');
    border['default'] = "0";

directly inside the page

Re: How to get textarea value?

Hey Giacomo

Unfortunately CKEditor doesn't offer a classic onChange event.

To accomplish something like that, you will need to implement something yourself.

There is a plugin which implements an onChange event for CKEditor: http://alfonsoml.blogspot.ch/2011/03/onchange-event-for-ckeditor.html Please understand that i can't offer support for this plugin since i myself never used it.

you might be able to find a possible solution here as well: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5143516/detecting-onchange-events-from-a-ckeditor-using-jquery

Since some of the solutions require you to access to CKEditor instance, here's an example of how to do that:

$editMe = $this->widget('ext.editMe.widgets.ExtEditMe', array(
<script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
        var ckeInstance = jQuery("#<?php echo $editMe->htmlOptions['id']; ?>").ckeditorGet();

hope this helps

Re: New skin

Hey Giacomo

ozone is part of CKEditor 4 which is still beta. editMe 2.0 uses CKEditor 3.6.4, therefore you can only use the skins which are inside the extension. As soon as the final version of CKEditor 4 is released it will be included in editMe.
