Passing data to HTML Editor inserted in bootstrap modal

Passing data to HTML Editor inserted in bootstrap modal

Hi, I am trying to pass data to a html editor inserted in a bootstrap 3 modal for an update form, all the values are passed like this to the modal:

<a data-toggle="modal" data-id="<?php echo($fotos->getColumnVal("floresID")); ?>" data-nombre="<?php echo($fotos->getColumnVal("fotosNOM")); ?>" data-posicion="<?php echo($fotos->getColumnVal("fotosORD")); ?>" data-descripcion="<?php echo($fotos->getColumnVal("fotosDES")); ?>" class="open-egresoInventario" href="#egresoInventario"><img src="../media/icons/edit_1.png" alt=""/></a>

This is the script to put the code in the modal:

$(document).on("click", ".open-egresoInventario", function () {
var prodID = $(this).data('id');
$(".modal-body #prodID").val( prodID );
var nombre = $(this).data('nombre');
$(".modal-body #nombre").val( nombre );
var posicion = $(this).data('posicion');
$(".modal-body #posicion").val( posicion );

And the modal goes like this:

<!-- Begin Modal -->
<div id="egresoInventario" class="modal fade bs-example-modal-lg" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="mySmallModalLabel">
<div class="modal-dialog modal-lg" role="document">
<!-- Modal content-->
<form enctype="multipart/form-data" class="Cool_Default" id="Egreso_inventario" name="Egreso_inventario" method="post" action="<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">
<div class="modal-content">
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal">&times;</button>
<div class="modal-body">
<input id="nombre" name="nombre" type="text" value="" class="formTextfield_Large" style="margin-bottom: 10px" title="Campo obligatorio" placeholder="Nombre de producto" required="true">
<input id="posicion" name="posicion" type="text" value="" class="formTextfield_Large" style="margin-bottom: 10px" title="Campo obligatorio" placeholder="PosiciĆ³n" required="true">
<input type="hidden" name="egresoprodID" id="prodID" value=""/>
<input type="hidden" name="egresoEST" id="egresoEst" value="2"/>
// The initial value to be displayed in the editor.
$CKEditor_initialValue = "";
$CKEditor = new CKEditor();
$CKEditor->basePath = "../webassist/ckeditor/";
$CKEditor_config = array();
$CKEditor_config["wa_preset_name"] = "Dewalt";
$CKEditor_config["wa_preset_file"] = "Dewalt.xml";
$CKEditor_config["width"] = "100%";
$CKEditor_config["height"] = "200px";
$CKEditor_config["docType"] = "<" ."!" ."DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN\" \"\">";
$CKEditor_config["contentsLanguage"] = "es";
$CKEditor_config["dialog_startupFocusTab"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["fullPage"] = true;
$CKEditor_config["tabSpaces"] = 4;
$CKEditor_config["toolbar"] = array(
array( 'Bold','Italic','-','NumberedList','BulletedList'),
array( 'JustifyLeft','JustifyCenter','JustifyRight','JustifyBlock'),
array( 'Format'),
array( 'BidiLtr','BidiRtl'),
array( 'Table','HorizontalRule','Smiley','SpecialChar'),
array( 'Cut','Copy','Paste','PasteText','PasteFromWord','-','SpellChecker','Scayt'),
array( 'Link','Unlink'),
array( 'Undo','Redo','-','Find','Replace','-','SelectAll','RemoveFormat'));
$CKEditor_config["contentsLangDirection"] = "ltr";
$CKEditor_config["entities"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["pasteFromWordRemoveFontStyles"] = false;
$CKEditor_config["pasteFromWordRemoveStyles"] = false;
$CKEditor->editor("descripcion", $CKEditor_initialValue, $CKEditor_config);

<div class="modal-footer">
<input class="formButton" name="Egreso_submit" type="submit" id="Egreso_submit" value="Registrar Egreso">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Cancelar</button>
<!-- End Modal -->

I can pass all the info to the fields in the modal but I cannot pass it to the HTML Editor. Any clues on how to do that? the info I want to pass to the HTML Editor is from data-descripcion
