Inserting Form Elements

Hi All,

When inserting form elements in Design View (DW CS6, Creative Cloud), I consistently get a message of the type:

while executing objecttag text field.htm a javascript error occurred


I can enter an element using coding view, but, often, I find it quicker to use design view. It's not a major problem, but it is bloody annoying!

I've deleted the cache file etc but it makes no difference. I have both Data Bridge and Design Extender installed.

Any ideas?

I am not able to reproduce the problem, but it would seam to be a Dreamweaver issue rather than caused by Design Extender or Data Bridge to me.

If you create a new site with a blank page, and try to add the form element, does it give the same error?

It does Jason - not sure why/how..

Ok, so a blank page in a new site does not have the same problem, what about a blank page in the old site?

if a blank page in the old site does not have the problem, then the problem is being caused by some code on your page.

Hi Jason,

I DO get the same error in a new site with a blank page!

Hi. I can confirm I to get this javascript message. I am also using the Cloud version of dreamweaver CS6. The problem ONLY arises when i update dreamweaver to the latest revision (when the cloud version changes to HTML5 form elements). The forms elements do work..however HTML Editor (CKEditor) doesnt...then when I copy over the forms folder (suggested as a fix to allow HTML Editor work) thats when the problem of the javascript error appears. So it has something to do with the forms folder thats being copied over.

I think I have the answer - renaming the configuration folder and allowing Dreamweaver to create a new one, seems to solve the problem Chris.

On the Mac, it can be found at: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Dreamweaver CS6/en-US

Not sure what caused it in the first place, but that seems to sort it - for now!

@Andrew I just done a test and it is the FORMS folder that causes the problem (for me) In order to get CKEditor to work with the latest revision of Dreamweaver CS6 Creative Cloud you need to copy the FORMS folder (from a previous install of Dreamweaver - the folder as a ZIP download can be found on this forum)...So then copying the FORMS folder makes CKEditor work...however it breaks the Forms menu in Dreamweaver...so its one of the other lol Yes using the forms from the dreamweaver menu (Insert > Forms) works in Code view only but not Design view...so its something to do with the FORMS folder that was copied to the OBJECTS folder in the Dreamweaver Configuration folder...any suggestions anyone?

Hi Chris,

Never used CKEditor, but recreating the config folder works.

Ray has told me a few times that they get a bit pi**ed off with Adobe doing Creative Cloud updates! Feel free to email me directly andrewd@addigital.co.uk if you wish!
