i have to add some buttons to the editor tinyMCE! How can I do that - I tried this:

--> Sam / 27 April 2008 at 10:28am / Core Development Team / Re: Customize Tiny MCE:

1) Apply this changeset to your own copy. This will appear in the next version, so you're not distrupting upgradeability.

2) Create MyToolbar.php. Overload any methods that you need to:

class MyToolbar extends HtmlEditorField_Toolbar { }

3) Add the following to _config.php:

Object::useCustomClass("HtmlEditorField_Toolbar", "MyToolbar");  

and it works so far, but not with all button-typs.

So i have problems with implement Forecolor, Backcolor, Selectclass drop down menu, Selectfont drop down menu, ... and so on.

Is it possible to get an example or a patch to fix this problem?
It is possibel to implement the full tiny-toolbar?
In this project the use of Silverstripe stands and falls with this question!

I hope there is a solution!

greetings from germany - wolfgang

Have a look at the content of HtmlEditorField_Toolbar in HtmlEditorField.php, to see how the existing style dropdown is implemented.

I don't know of any existing patch for this, sorry. We prefer to leave font/colour selection out of the CMS and put that information in the template.
