    Reworked Editor Component - clarification

    Matej Novotny Newbie

      Hello

       

      As I am working on editor tests I came across several problem I need to clarify:

       

      1) Skinning

      - This concerns more components than just editor, I heard that this will be somehow reworked in RF 5 but I have no more specific information, could you provide me with some please?

      - Any test we create for newly developed components should NOT contain tests for skins atm, is that correct?

       

      2) Inline editor

      - Is inline editor also a JSF component?

      - If so, how do I create it in code? And furthermore is there any functionality difference between inline and basic editor? (e.g. some functions missing etc)?

       

       

      Cheers

      Matej

          Hey Matej,

           

          good questions.

           

          1) Skinning

           

          For Alpha4 we have decided to do not re-introduce Editor skinning feature

          as I think it's not as handy as I originally though during 4.3 development.

          In fact getting the skin work was more trouble than actual benefits.

           

          Little bit more context: There is no solid LESS-based CKEditor skin that

          could we compile RichWidgets against.

           

          With that said, I don't think it's worth the trouble. The Editor should

          have just one skin and if someone wants to change it, he can use generic

          CKEditor skinning feature.

           

          2) Inline editor

           

          ..works in RichWidgets, but it is not exposed as JSF component setting.

           

          There are several additional steps that needs to be done in order to get

          this:

          • render a <div contenteditable=true> alongside the <textarea>

          • hide <textarea>

          • synchronize a content of editor to <textarea>

           

          Again, I don't think it's a must have.

           

          My opinion: let's see whether someone from our community would consider it

          handy.

           

           

          Cheers,
