Re: {Suggestion} WYSIWYG Html Editor

Hello,

I will take note tin, however, I don't know any WYSIWYG editor component who produces good HTML code for us. That's is the reason we don't use a WYSIWYG editor but have an HTML preview panel. This panel is not exactly the same, however, at least we can see what we are writing... at least in the preview panel. smile

Re: {Suggestion} WYSIWYG Html Editor

Hello,

I can remember me searching for it. Anyway, something the code preview (in real time) allow us is to use the Bootstrap CSS framework, just like in the final application. I don't know of any WYSIWYG editor with this ability, for example.

Hello,

If I am not wrong the editor you link uses Bootstrap CSS, but, this is not exactly what we needed: we need that the produced code are ready for the Bootstrap CSS. On the other hand, you link to a cute piece of software, but they are an HTML component, no exactly the kind of control I looking to be used in the Delphi environment, in which App Builder is made. This secondly question maybe can be sustainable, even when may are not the best option in terms of performance.

Re: {Suggestion} WYSIWYG Html Editor

Hello,

I use EmbeddedWB in my programs, also in App Builder. It's quite useful. In fact I use that as the editor preview webbrowser. And here is again the point: the preview browser not only show the code editor "in real time", but also applies the Bootstrap CSS framework, which is something that no WYSIWYG editor can do, at least in my experience.

Other problems can appear too with the WYSIWYG editor. For example, the Report control expect and support more or less complex HTML code and AngularJS specific HTML code which probably are not supported by a WYSIWYG editor. Last, but not least, the components who edunt linked are too expensive to me right now: may I need to sold some AB licenses before...

In conclusion: a WYSIWYG editor can be useful, but leaks some features we can't forget like the Report AngularJS specific HTML code. On the other hand, we have a "real time" preview webbrowser just aside the editor: just when we write something the preview browser is updated and show the changes, I insist, using the Bootstrap CSS framework, another WYSIWYG editor leak...

Hi David,
What about DevExpress VCL? Will it make a difference?

Re: {Suggestion} WYSIWYG Html Editor

Hello,

First of all, honestly I really don't think a WYSIWYG editor can be good here. About DevExpress (I never use DevExpress, even when appear a good package of components), they are very expensive to my economy edunt. Just take a look by yourself.
