etinymce Simple way to use TinyMCE 4.0.12 with Yii.

This extension lets you use TinyMCE on your Yii Project.

This extension simple publishes TinyMCE files to your sites /assets directory and registers them so they can be used.

I think this is a good approach because you don't need to learn anything specific to the extension and all the code required to display and configure the Textarea are in the view.


Yii 1.1 or above


Extract the release file under protected/extensions


In the view file that you want to use TinyMce add the following right before the <?php $this->endWidget(); ?> tag.

<?php $this->widget('application.extensions.tinymce.SladekTinyMce'); ?>


<?php $this->endWidget(); ?>

In the code above <?php $this->widget('application.extensions.tinymce.SladekTinyMce'); ?> is what publishes the assets (if they are not already published). is what actually used to configure the textarea and can be configured exactly as described in TinyMCE's Documentation

Here is a full example of a form that has two fields. *note that selector:'textarea' will apply to all text areas or you can specify individual textareas with selector: "textarea#YOUR_TEXTAREAS_ID"

/* @var $this ContractsController */
/* @var $model Contracts */
/* @var $form CActiveForm */

<div class="form">

<?php $form=$this->beginWidget('CActiveForm', array(
	// Please note: When you enable ajax validation, make sure the corresponding
	// controller action is handling ajax validation correctly.
	// There is a call to performAjaxValidation() commented in generated controller code.
	// See class documentation of CActiveForm for details on this.
)); ?>

	<p class="note">Fields with <span class="required">*</span> are required.</p>

	<?php echo $form->errorSummary($model); ?>

	<div class="row">
		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'contractName'); ?>
		<?php echo $form->textArea($model,'contractName',array('rows'=>6, 'cols'=>50)); ?>
		<?php echo $form->error($model,'contractName'); ?>

	<div class="tinymce">
		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,'contractData'); ?>
		<?php echo $form->textArea($model,'contractData',array('rows'=>6, 'cols'=>50)); ?>           
		<?php echo $form->error($model,'contractData'); ?>

	<div class="row buttons">
		<?php echo CHtml::submitButton($model->isNewRecord ? 'Create' : 'Save'); ?>

<?php $this->widget('application.extensions.tinymce.SladekTinyMce'); ?>

    selector: "textarea#Contracts_contractName",
    menubar: false,
    width: 900,
    height: 300,
   toolbar1: "undo redo | bold | italic underline | alignleft aligncenter alignright alignjustify ",

        {title: 'Table styles'},
