View Full Version : Form not submitting RTE field

03-29-2006, 08:45 AM
Right then,
Rich Text Editor (for Text fields)

First off i'm using Frontpage (kill me now) as my editor along with notepad (ok just hurt me).

The following error occurs when I preview in FP
Line 190
Char 3
Access is denied

Thats not so important as I think its probably just FP having a hissy fit.

The real problem is that when the form is submitted the email produced does not contain the RTE field and its contents?!
Am I just coding it incorrectly or am I foolish in thinking I didn't need some server side script?

Here is my code

<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--" onSubmit="return submitForm();">
<!--webbot bot="SaveResults" startspan
U-File="../_private/form_results.txt" S-Format="TEXT/CSV"
S-Label-Fields="TRUE" B-Reverse-Chronology="FALSE"
B-Email-Label-Fields="TRUE" S-Builtin-Fields
U-Confirmation-Url="Publish_confirmation.html" --><strong>[FrontPage Save Results Component]</strong><!--webbot
bot="SaveResults" endspan -->
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function submitForm() {
//make sure hidden and iframe values are in sync before submitting form
updateRTE('rte1'); //use this when syncing only 1 rich text editor ("rtel" is name of editor)
//updateRTEs(); //uncomment and call this line instead if there are multiple rich text editors inside the form
alert("Submitted value: "+document.myform.rte1.value) //alert submitted value
return true; //Set to false to disable form submission, for easy debugging.

//Usage: initRTE(imagesPath, includesPath, cssFile)
initRTE("images/", "", "");

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
//Usage: writeRichText(fieldname, html, width, height, buttons, readOnly)
writeRichText('rte1', 'here's the "<em>preloaded</em> <b>content</b>"', 400, 200, true, false);

<p><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1"><input type="reset" value="Reset" name="B2"></p>
