Hi all,

Having trouble trying to a get WYSIWYG field working on my job postings board... When I use a Textareafield its loads okay but I have to manually type HTML fields. .. I'm looking to get a basic HTML editor in there with just the common text formatting. Followed instructions to this point:

class JobBoard extends DataObject {
   static $db = array(
      'JobTitle' => 'Varchar',
      'JobDescription' => 'HTMLText', // Declared HTMLText when building the custom database table

$fields = new FieldSet(

   new ReadonlyField('ID','id #',$id),
   new TextField('JobTitle', 'Job Title', 'New Job'),
   new HtmlEditorField("JobDescription", "Job Description"), // Declared HTMLEditor field (but shows nothing in CMS)

$form->loadDataFrom(array(
   'ID' => $currentJob->ID,
   'JobTitle' => $currentJob->JobTitle,
   'JobDescription' => $currentJob->JobDescription, // Load data into it - which works fine on Textareafield

Fresh pair of eyes would be very much appreciated;

I'm using silverstripe 2.2.2.

Cheers

Steve

I just did the following and it worked.

class HomePage extends Page {

   public static $has_one = array(
      'HomePageText1' => 'HTMLText',
// ...
   );

   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

      $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.HomePageTextAreas", new HtmlEditorField('HomePageText1', 'HomePageText1'));

      return $fields;
   }
}

I think it might have something to do with the fact that you are assigning

$fields = new FieldSet(...);

Rather then adding to the array.
