Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Using the richtext widget

Collapse
Posted by Lars Pind on
Janine,

I've now taken a look and found the problem.

When you export the value, you export the { body format } list as the value of element "message_body".

But if you look at the source behind the edit form with the richtext widget, you see that there are two widgets:

message_body is the textarea into which the text gets entered.

message_body.format is the select box which lets you pick the format.

If you export the values the same way, it works:

set exported_vars [export_vars -form { message_id forum_id parent_id subject html_p confirm_p { message_body $content} { message_body.format $format } }]

Here's a complete patch against the version I have running here:

If you would provide a fix for this for 5.0, that would be awesome!
