HTML Editor for text fields


In Adempiere webUI, in a text field (eg Sales Order Description), you can edit the content of the field with rich text (bold, list, ...) with a right click/Editor.
This is not available in idempiere. When switching the to HTML tab, you can do nothing.

Wondering if it would be possible to determine dynamically how the content should be displayed (plain text or nice html).

If you write somehting using HTML tab, you will have a field which will looks like :

<li>line 1</li>
<li>line 2</li>

Whereas it would be better to have:

  • line 1

  • line 2

Working heavily today with the CKEditor, seems to be buggy still not saving the text changes from the rich editor.

Most of the time the things edited on the rich editor are lost if you just save them, if you click on Text tab back and forth - sometimes the changes on the rich tab are reflected, sometimes doesn't.

Noticed that if the changes are not refreshed, I can take a word and make it bold, and then go to the textarea and it refresh properly, then I need to do the same operation to remove the bold.

Looking on internet I think there are more users reporting similar problems

I also enabled full toolbar changing the org.adempiere.ui.zk/js/ckeditor/config.js / the actual toolbar doesn't contain some important buttons like bulleted lists. Maybe we can leave the default toolbar?

The new release of ckeditor ( 4.0.1 ) component is working fine again and I've reverted back to it. Now it should work as it is in 3.6.1

One little detail : if you push bold/italic/underline (or any others) buttons, you can't see if they are activated.
Means that you don't know if what you'll write will be bold or not ; buttons are not embedeed (whereas this was available on 361)
