 Fixing JavaScript Error for FCKEditor When Hiding Form

When a record that uses the FCKeditor is hidden, a JavaScript error
occurs. To fix the problem, you can hide or load the FCKeditor
dynamically too.

To do so, create a text file called fckinclude.js and save it in a
folder that is accessible from the site. I put it in a folder under the
root, called misc:

window.onload = function() {
var TextBoxName_FCK = new FCKeditor('TextBoxName');
TextBoxName_FCK.BasePath = "/fckeditor/";

If you are using a custom configuration file for the editor, the above
can become something like:

window.onload = function() {
var TextBoxName_FCK = new FCKeditor('TextBoxName');
TextBoxName_FCK.BasePath = "/fckeditor/";
TextBoxName_FCK.CustomConfigurationsPath = '/misc/fckmyconfig.js';
TextBoxName_FCK.ToolbarSet = "Medium";
TextBoxName_FCK.Height = "150";
TextBoxName_FCK.Width = "880";

Then create a label where CCS would usually put the call to the editor
being sure to remove CCS's own calls to it. Be sure to set the label's
type as HTML rather than the default of Text. In this example, the label
is called $FCKLoadEditor. Add a Before Show event to the label:

if ($Condition) {
include(RelativePath . "/misc/fckinclude.js");
$fckcontents = ob_get_contents();
$FCKLoadEditor->SetValue("<script type=\"text/javascript\">\n".
$fckcontents . "\n</script>");
$FCKLoadEditor->Vibility = 1;
} else {
$FCKLoadEditor->Vibility = 0;

$Condition: whatever your condition is to show or hide the record and be
sure to change the path to your own location.

I understand that a CCS fix is in the works but in the meantime, this
should help, especially for users of the 3.X versions of CCS.

Try this method and let me know what you think. I have passed this on to Helen at Yes and it might be implemented in a future release.

My fix is a little less code and I think a little simpler.

Also, This method will be easier for The Support Team to implement as a fix in CCS since it is only one line of code essentially and can be tied to the specific control during HTML generation.

Below is the code. Since each control that attaches an editor to it is generated all you have to do is conditionally attach each control as needed. This works since if a record is set to not visible, the HTML actually does not have the control defined.

In the case below cr_memberletters1 is the record that was set to not visible.

.//Attach FCKeditor @95-F50E89AC
var JRtest;
JRtest=typeof document.cr_memberletters1;// find out if the record is set to visible or not
if(JRtest!="undefined")//If the record is set to visible go make the attach
var cr_memberletters1ml_letter_FCK = new FCKeditor(this.getAttribute("id"));
cr_memberletters1ml_letter_FCK.BasePath = "FCKeditor/";
cr_memberletters1ml_letter_FCK.ToolbarSet = "Basic";
cr_memberletters1ml_letter_FCK.Height = "600";
cr_memberletters1ml_letter_FCK.Width = "600";
//End Attach FCKeditor

Does that help?

If you have any questions, let me know.
