View Full Version : Form field Limiter almost working with Tinymce

1) Script Title: Form field Limiter v2.0

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex16/limitinput.htm

3) Describe problem: Generally the 'Form field Limiter v2.0' script is working GREAT however, I can't seem to get it to fully work on the texarea inputs that use TinyMCE (WYSIWYG). TinyMCE uses an iframe. If I put text into the input and refresh the screen I can get the Form field Limiter to show how many characters are left. I just can't get it to work real time.

You may also like to know, from the reading I have done on the TinyMCE site, a lot of people are keen to have a Form field Limiter they can integrate with TinyMCE. An opportunity for you.

Do you have a sample URL to a TinyMCE textarea?

thanks DD Admin for your reply.

I just set up a quick sample page with TinyMCE and Form field Limiter v2.0 on a site that is in development. http://www.freedownloadhub.com/products/add

TinyMCE creates an iframe (fileDescription_ifr) over the pages textarea. The text typed into the TinyMCE element is placed into a paragraph with no id.

If you type into the TinyMCE area and then refresh the page, the Form field Limiter counter will show the reduced number of available character spaces remaining however, it will not work in real time.

Thanks again.
