Yii 1.1: krichtexteditor

Rich text editor widget using TinyMCE


KRichTextEditor generates a rich text editor interface using TinyMCE. It is a simple wrapper to TinyMCE jQuery plugin.

An example usage would be this in your view, typically _form:

$this->widget('KRichTextEditor', array(
    'model' => $model,
    'value' => $model->isNewRecord ? '' : $model->content,
    'attribute' => 'content',
    'options' => array(
        'theme_advanced_resizing' => 'true',
        'theme_advanced_statusbar_location' => 'bottom',

Default options

Assigning $options would overwrite the $defaultOptions that will be passed to JavaScript.

class KRichTextEditor extends CInputWidget {
    public $defaultOptions = array(
        'theme' => 'advanced',
        'theme_advanced_toolbar_location' => 'top',
        'theme_advanced_toolbar_align' => 'left',
        'theme_advanced_buttons1' => "bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,|,fontselect,fontsizeselect",
        'theme_advanced_buttons2' => "bullist,numlist,|,outdent,indent,blockquote,|,undo,redo,|,link,unlink,image,cleanup,code,|,forecolor,backcolor",
        'theme_advanced_buttons3' => '',

Page output

This is an example of what the browser can render:

If you don't load jQuery in your page, KRichTextEditor will load jQuery additionally.

HTML output

<textarea id="Article_content" name="Article[content]"></textarea>

JavaScript output

<script type="text/javascript" src="/assets/99104da9/jquery.tinymce.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function($) {
