After the last post, I finally managed to get to the point where the simple XUL HTML remote editor works.

Usage is pretty simple:
  • Install the files on your server
  • Add the css header
    <?xml-stylesheet href="HtmlEdit.css" type="text/css"?>

  • use the htmledit tag, it uses attributes

     <htmledit value="hello world" />  

    • editorheight="400" (self explanitary)
    • editorwidht="700" (self explanitary)
    • imagepopup="name" where name is the id of a popup
    • linkpopup="name" where name is the id of a popup
    • value="the text to go in the editor"
  • For the image popup:
    • use imageurl="xxx" on the menuitem for the real image url to insert in the editor
  • For the link popup:
    • use url="xxx" on the menuitem for the url to insert into the editor
    • the url "pick:" just uses a javascript prompt to ask you for the url.

Wow - last time I tried that, wasted my time barking up the wrong tree (

Thanks for releasing that (and like the SVN browser)

this is an excellent little find. I needed a simple editor for an xul email interface and this works perfectly. thanks.

There is a full-featured CMS with XUL front-end.

wont run under xulrunner
Tried this XUL under the latest xulrunner. No editor is shown...
Wihin Firefox all is working fine. Does xulrunner need some special adaptions?

Xulrunner feedback
From what I know of Xulrunner it is designed to run local xul - the editor has quite a bit of code to work around the permissions resulting in remote XUL can not use the <editor> tag. - So This approach may not be ideal for xulrunner.

I just tried it with the xulrunner, version - and it works just fine.
Great Application!
