Hi All,

Just a quicky. I have a custom HTMLEditorField that I am loading into a form on a page. It is working pretty well and I have removed all but simple "bold","bullets" (etc) buttons.

I was wondering though, can I add custom CSS to this field? Maybe using HTMLEditorConfig? The default font is a little hard to read.

Currently the field is not loading editor.css, so I cant use that approach

Ideas?

Many thanks,

Mo

Something like this?:

$cfgContent = HtmlEditorConfig::get('someIdentifier');

$cfgContent->setOption('content_css', 'somefolder/css/editor.css');

Does this work?

$cfgContent->setOption('content_css', 'admintheme/css/editor.css?' .time());

Any idea why this does not work? I get an error:

[User Error] Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'setoption' does not exist on 'HtmlEditorField'

	$Content = new HTMLEditorField("Content", "Post", 20,75);
	$Content->setOption('content_css', 'themes/candy/css/editor.css');
	$fields = new FieldSet(
		new TextField("Title", "Title"),
		$Content,
		new CheckboxField("Agree", 'Agree?')
	);

Hi, setOption($k, $v) is a method of the HtmlEditorConfig class.
But you try to call it on an HtmlEditorField object (which totally doesn't know anything about it and is confused now ;-))
