hi everybody,

i added a custom cms-action to a managed model in modelAdmin. (Add new button next to the standard Save,Back and Delete Button). Now i need to process the form in the extended ModelAdmin_RecordController (this is where the form action is). Everythig works like it should but HTMLText Fields from the DataObject...
If i look into the $_REQUEST var every field appears with its correct values, but HTMLText Fields only contains the correct value if i saved the DataObject(ManagedModel) before i fire the CustomCMS Action.

I can change field values from any other field and it works fine..($_REQUEST values are correct also without saving the object first)

Is there a special behaiviour with the tinymce htmltext field and form submits ? somebody got the same problem before ?

Hi Matzeo681,

that is right. There is a special behaviour of TinyMCE in the HTMLEditorField. TinyMCE generates an iframe and all input will be there.
If you click the CMS_Save Action, a Javascript function will be execute. This function, called TinyMCE.triggerSave(), copy all the content of the iframe in the hidden textarea.
