Hi Formspider team,

I was wondering how the htmlEditor component works. I want to create some text with markup to be able to render a nice text content with the htmlRenderer. I created a cell with the htmlEditor in it, but i only get a non editable text box without any controls.

Can you explain how this should work, or am i misunderstanding the function of the htmlEditor?

Thanks, Michiel

You should set its value to an html such as:
<span style="font-weight:bold;"> Hello </span>
I know its name is confusing but it will be changed in future releases.
What you should know for now is:
HTMLEditor gets an html end renders it (api_component.setValue),
HTMLRenderer gets a URL and renders it (api_component.setURL).

Hi Oskan,

OK, that is clear. I though the htmlEditor was something like CKEditor. So there is currently no text editor component in Formspider? I feel a change request coming soon.. ;)

Thanks, Michiel
