  • This api really needs to be extended. I'm writing some plugins and I miss an overview about all FCK... objects (FCK, FCKLang, FCKConfig, FCKTools, ...) with all available functions.--Gka 13:08, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
    > I completely agree, the editor offers huge functionality to tap into, but most developers are oblivious to this as this is nowhere documented.--Saul11 9:53, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
    > I just posted a list of editorInstance (API) properties and functions (for FCKeditor 2.6.1), see I t would be great to see documentations on it!
  • My 'HOWTO - Work with the selection in the editor' would be a nice addition instead of only mentioning the Selection Object.


  • SetHTML has been depreciated so use SetData (They do the same thing). Also, SetData has a second parameter, resetIsDirty, which when set to true will reset the dirty flag on the control. This is important as if you call the ResetIsDirty method after calling SetData it won't work as expected.
