Topic: Form Plugin
I've created a form plugin.
I've created a form plugin.
I was thinking of creating one myself... too late !
I'll give it a try soon. Thanks.
Few points I have noticed:
1. Visualaid class for the FORM-element would be great. It would help to pinpoint the location of the form.
2. Popups need a little styling, and I feel the "help" thingies, if used should go into a tab (like the new popups in tiny)
3. Element preview is unnessesary in my opinion.
4. The hover effect in toolbar buttons doesnt work on Firefox and on IE it looks a bit bugged.
Anyway great work! I hope you'll continue the development of this plugin. Very handy.
Btw, textarea not yet supported?
Just in the nick of time, thanks!
Is there a way to automatically adding the valid elements for forms to the plugin, rather than having to add it manually everytime one sets up tinymce?
This seems very interesting. But since it's my first external plugin I install I don't really now how to do it. The icons doesn't show up on the toolbar. I have added the plugin in the init-function.
Thomas / Sweden
plugins : "form,........."
theme_advanced_buttons3_add_before : "formcontrols,........"
be sure to add the form components to your valid_elements block
Brilliant. Thank's a a lot. But I have still some problems: When I switch to the HTML-view the form- and input tags doesn't show despite that I have added form[action,method],input[type,rows,col] into the "valid_elements" parameter in tiny_mce_src.js.
I have not yet had time to create the visual editors for this module. That means that elements that are not visible from the html (like <form>) are not actually visible in the editor area. things that are visible such as <select> do display
Ok, but doesn't this mean that you can't save the form-related html when you for instance try to store in a database?
No, It just means that in the editor window, you can see where the form begins and ends. For example with a table. If the table has not been set to show borders, you really can't "see" the table elements (without the visual-aids). Same with the form. you can't really "see" the form, only the input elements. If you click the "html source" button in tiny, you should see the form elements. If you do not, then there are still some things missing from your valid_elements.
Tiny MCE needs a forms plugin,well done. Llets hope the team keep developing it and add it as main plugin.
Question, seeing Im still a newbie at this im not sure what I need to add to the "Valid Elements" Im thinking it may be something like this, hope someone can tell me what is better.
-form[name|method|action|id] -input[type|value|id|disabled|class] -select[name|style]
more to this: im just trying to get form elements working in html mode, ie pasting form code. It seems to be working fine if I add the following extended_valid_elements. Only problem Im having now is the "selected" element for options still gets stripped, why?
from the readme.txt:
Mozilla and firefox seem to have difficulty specifying focus on an eleme
nt, so changing an element's properties is tricky.
I have been unable to make the "selected" parameter for options stick. I
t seems to be removed by some clean-up."
where's the link for this form plugin?
Seems the source forge page displays badly. all the way at the bottom of the page in the Attached files section. you will probably have to scroll way to the right to see the download link.

This seems to be a wonderfull plug-in but it is not working with me.
I have done the following steps in "Full featured example"
1. Added "form" directory in plugin folder
2. In tinyMCE.init , i added form in the begining i.e. like this plugins : "form,.....
3. also added formcontrols like theme_advanced_buttons3_add_before : "formcontrols,
4. Apended the following line in extended_valid_elements
I think that shoudl be enough to make it run.
But it gave me error "tinyMCE.defParam is null or not an object"
Please help me how to go about it.
I am using TinyMCE 2.0.3
why can't I download the file at sourceforge?
don't see a download link.
is there a new/better way of adding form functionality I haven't found?
I'm thirding gforce301's comment. I get this same error, and on top of this I can't edit til clicking on a property item when I try it in firefox. By the way, I don't get the script error in firefox.
I'm running tinyMCE with Drupal and in addition to the issues here, when I use this plugin I cant populate the textarea with data(when I try to edit a post, nothign appears in the body)
I do not have the time to investigate getting this up to date with the current version of tiny. Sorry. I did hear from another coder who was going to do some work on it, but don't know the status of his work.
Interesting it seems to work in Opera and IE6 but would seem firebug in FireFox 2.0 has issues I am going to do some more testing
Hi is it possible I could get the a copy of the plugin code to take a look at and maybe update, I am writing my own form plugin but when I insert a input ie "<input name="foo" type="text" />" into the content it makes tinymce go a tad nutty.

Any update on the plugin you were working on? The other one is no longer available and I can't seem to find any info on alternatives, existing source ... nothing. I'm totally stuck without FORM support.
