    How to add HtmlEditorField Link to this post

    I have created a new module for CMS, I am adding HtmlEditorField like this:

    $fields = new FieldSet(
             // TODO The ID field needs to be hidden but while testing make it readonly
             new ReadonlyField('ID','id #',$id),
             new TextField('article_name', "Article Name", ""),
             $dateField = new DateField('article_date', "Article Date", ""),
             new CheckboxField('article_publish',"Publish",""),
             new CheckboxField('article_archive',"Archive",""),
             new HtmlEditorField('article_content', "Content",15,20)

    and created dataobject like this:

    class Articles extends DataObject {
       static $db = array(
          'article_name' => 'Varchar',
          'article_date' => 'Date',
          'article_publish' => 'Boolean',
          'article_archive' => 'Boolean',
          'article_content' => 'HTMLText'


    But when I submit my form, I get the validation error "article_content Content Required" even though I have fed all the fields with data , if I remove the validation, the form is submitted but the data(from HtmlEditorField) is not saved to the database ??

    Please note that the same form works fine when I replace HtmlEditorField with TextareaField.

    How can I get the HtmlEditorField working?
