Perhaps a Small Bug

Perhaps a Small Bug

I have noticed now on repeated occasions that when applying the initial value for the HTML Editor on an update page, for instance, that the initial value does not "stick" and get placed in the code. It does, though, stick if you reopen the editor using the edit button after it placed on the page and then hit the lightning bolt again and add the recordset or other variable to set the initial value.

I made sure the behavior was the same on several attempts before posting this... but now that I have experienced the same issue on several different sites, I have come to the conclusion that it is probably a bug of sorts. I am using Mac OSX 10.6.1 and Dreamweaver CS4.

Cheers,

Brian

Do you encounter the same issue if you tab out the initial value input field.

Sometime Dreamweaver needs to change focus in order to save value.

Let me know if that helped or not.

Hi Dani,

Yeah, I made sure to use both tab and return before reporting the problem. Because I remember that issue upon the launch of the DFP2, so I did try to change the focus and still had the same problem.

I was not able to reproduce the issue you are experiencing. Could you please outline the steps you are talking, and if it is a bug i will report it.


Thanks.

Hi Dani,

Sorry for the delay in getting you this information.

Here's what I am doing when I get the bug:

First, I run the DataAssist wizard to create my DataAssist results, search, update, and insert pages.

For my content area, in DataAssist, I am first defining it as a text area.

Then on the update page, I apply the HTML Editor to the text area. Inside the HTML Editor dialog box for "Initial Value," I click the lightning bolt and then select the corresponding value from the recordset to bind to the HTML Editor instance and then hit OK to save the editor.

A check of the code shows the initial value is not maintained or added to the code. But if I enter the dialog again and add the initial value (the same way as described before) a second time, it then adds the correct code.

Best regards,

Brian
