I have created a new admin module and I am using SimpleHTMLEditorField in the form like this:

function getEditForm($id) {

$validator = new RequiredFields('article_name', 'article_date','article_content');

// Create form fields
$fields = new FieldSet(
// TODO The ID field needs to be hidden but while testing make it readonly
new ReadonlyField('ID','id #',$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 SimpleHTMLEditorField('article_content', "Content")


The SimpleHTMLEditorField shows when the form loads normally, but it does not show when the form loaded using ajax on the right area of admin panel.

How can I get the SimpleHTMLEditorField working in Ajax form ? Please Help ?

I think you would need to load jquery.livequery.js and change the JS function that loads SimpleHTMLEditor field to use a livequery handler..

Thanks UncleCheese.

How should I change the JS function to, that loads SimpleHTMLEditorField ?

Also, I want to show HTML editor similar to the one being used in the CMS admin, how can I include all those options in SimpleHTMLEditorField ?

You're not going to be able to do that. That instance of TinyMCE has been heavily customised and pretty well baked into CMSMain.
