Configure writable area in HTML editor

Thread began 9/28/2011 6:48 am by gunnar.andersson426689 | Last modified 10/04/2011 5:36 am by gunnar.andersson426689 | 1842 views | 9 replies |

Configure writable area in HTML editor

Hello!

Is it possible to configure the writable area in the HTML-editor ( ex 150*175px )
to fit the area where the text will be displayed in the
WEB-page?

Is it possible to prevent resizing of the HTML-editor?
I would like it to fit in a DIV with overflow hidden.

Thank you in advance
Gunnar Andersson

in the HTMLEditor behavior window, you have the option to set the editor width and height.


to disable re-size, find the following line of code:
[php
$CKEditor_config = array();
[/php]


and change it to:

php:
$CKEditor_config = array();

$CKEditor_config["resize_enabled"] = false;

Tanks but the question was maybe not noough specific.
Although I configure the Editor where You say it is poosible to write
a document in the writable area of the HTML-are that is
both higher and broader ( the window will scroll ).
Is it possible to understand what I mean?
I do not whant the writer to produce a "bigger" document than will be
visible in the DIV on the real WEB-page.

By setting the width and height options in the HTML Editor interface, you can set the HTML Editor document to the same size as the space available by your div.

by changing:

php:
$CKEditor_config = array();




php:
$CKEditor_config = array();
$CKEditor_config["resize_enabled"] = false;



you make it so the HTMLEditor document size cannot be changed.

Huge apologies for butting in, but I'm wondering if the OP is asking if there is some way of limiting the amount of content that may be entered in the Editor interface, so as not to exceed the amount of space allowed for in the output page design, i.e.- in a normal textarea you can (with spry) specify a MAX CHARS validation.

But I may (and probably am) wrong.

CKEditor does not have a setting to limit the number of characters that are entered.

See this page for details on how you can add this your self though:
