Sup peeps,
I'm loading a smarty object into a <text area> location like this...

Code:

<td>
<textarea  rows="8" cols="85">
{$smartyobjects->mObjects[cObjects].smarty_description}
</textarea>
</td>



I'm pretty much loading and viewing the .smarty_description (coming from my database), into a text area. When I press submit, the text then gets resubmitted back to the database. If I want to edit it again, I just hit the edit button and the text area becomes editable again, makes sense?

Everything works great because I can edit my text and put in any html code I want and submit it back to the database by hitting the submit button. But now I want to take things a little further (for a client who doesn't know HTML) and put in the FCKeditor to edit the textarea content.

would anyone have advice for me? thanks a bunch!

I read this page...
http://wiki.fckeditor.net/Developer%27s_Guide/Integration/PHP/Smarty

but I am currently using a class, constructor and init on my smarty pluggin pages. Plus, each of my .tpl pages will load their respected pluggin pages by having the following code attached to each .tpl page...

{load_mydata assign="myobject"}
<html>...

{$myobject->...}

</html>

any help will do. thanks!

i came across the smarty plugin on one of the forum pages here at smarty's site and placed it in the libs/pluggin section. I'm making great progress. I know see the fckeditor pop up when I press my edit button. But I can't set my value of the fckeditor equal to the smarty object I created...

Code:

{fckeditor BasePath="include/fckeditor/" InstanceName="test" Width="400px" Height="300px" value="$my_objects->mObjects[cObjects].emobject_description"}


I get an error when I use it and it says...

Code:

Object of class MyObjects could not be converted to string.


Any pointers will do - thanks!

Don't quote quote vars unless you intend to imbed them in a literal string. Quotes are intended for literals. If you do embed vars in literal strings, then the manual tells you how: http://smarty.php.net/manual/en/language.syntax.quotes.php

boots I just want to say thank you so much for helping me out. I got the fckeditor working very well on my system. the last thing I needed to do was assign my old textarea name as the new instance name and wala - got it going!

Thank you so much boots!
