    I guess it's possible tu add the TinyMCE Editor in my addon.
    Is there someone who can explain me how to do it?
    Simply I want to add an editor to a textarea in my addon :)

    Thanks in advance

    It may not be this easy...

    But this is the template code used to add the textarea with TinyMCE (with the fall back to a standard text editor and all of the other good stuff):

    <dl class="ctrlUnit fullWidth">
    <dd>{xen:raw $editorTemplate}</dd>

    I miss something, how can I get the text from the editor?
    class EWRporta_ViewPublic_Edit extends XenForo_ViewPublic_Base
        public function 
    $this->_params['editorTemplate'] = XenForo_ViewPublic_Helper_Editor::getEditorTemplate(
    I guess 'message' would be the name of the input but it doesn't work.

    Edit: I found the solution, just add _html :D message => message_html

    New day, new problem :D
    I need to do a second editor, because I need to edit the entry of the first one.
    Atm i'm using:
                $text $this->_request->getPost('message_html');
    $text addslashes($text);
                $news['hnews_text'] = stripslashes($news['hnews_text']);
    the first one take the input value in $text and prepare the var to be stored in db.
    The second one take the db's value and return it for displaying.
    The problem is when i use this var for 'defaultMessage' in the editor will be showed:

    <p style="margin-right: 2px; margin-bottom: 5px; margin-left: 2px; padding: 2px; color: #333333; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: normal;"><a class="highslide" style="color: #ff76...
    and not WYSIWYG like the input editor.
    Sorry for my bad english I guess you can understand my problem, if you can't just tell me and i'll try to explain it in a different way.

    Thanks in advance
