Frontaccounting make all Textarea as Rich Text Editor

First Method:

First one. you can use jQueryte editor. Here you can download the files. And Extract the zip and copy the js and css file to js directory. Than you can open the `` and change your file path.

	echo "<link href='$path_to_root/js/jquery-te-1.4.0.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> \n";
        echo "<script src='$path_to_root/js/jquery.js'></script>\n
		<script src='$path_to_root/js/jquery-te-1.4.0.min.js'></script>\n ";

Than you can add a few line of function to make all your textarea into  rich text editor.

Goto  `include/page/`. Here you can add the following line into it.

echo "<script type='text/javascript'>
	function jquery_editor() {

That’s it the text editor should be like this.

Alternative Editor :

Frontaccounting make all Textarea as Rich Text Editor. Some of us need to use the comments and memo areas better with Text formatting options. Here i am just giving a simple tutorial to make your comment area or memo area with rich text editor.

First we need one rich text editor. So we have few Open source Javascripts for this Rich text editor. Here i am suggesting simple one. which is NicEdit and you can get it from here.

than we have to include the js of nicedit to our FA. So just goto the following directory.

root_of_fa/includes/page/  and  here you can find few html tags there, which will start the page. Just include this tag just above the send_scripts()  function.

echo "<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>\n
<script type='text/javascript'>bkLib.onDomLoaded(nicEditors.allTextAreas);</script> \n";

this will replace all your comments and memo area into the rich text editor.  But there you need to do one more step to get it always. Because, the AJAX functionality will recreate the components, but it wont render there.  so you need to hook it again.  so just do one more step again.  I am not sure the line number, so here i brought the code here.  Open the js folder on your root.  than open the utils.js file,  the find the following line and add the  green marked  line there.

 if (errors.length>0)
	  // Restore focus if we've just lost focus because of DOM element refresh
		  	if(!newwin) { 
	        false  // do not disable caching

than, at the end of the file add this function  which is also on the same file.

function kvcodes_custom_callback_js() {

thats’  it.  If you have any doubt or comments drop below, i will try help you. There are some problem in Alternative method. So please go with first one

    Very good tutorial.
    I could implement in my FrontAccounting, but it does not save the editions on the bench. you know what can it be? The other fields operates normal.

    Yet he is not recording in the database, you know what can it be?

    All works great. Here is a time saver for others. The path settings for the icons are ‘../../../nicEditorIcons.gif’ if you have them in the js file. Also if you would like to config the available panel buttons just pass the desired button list in the echo lines.

    echo “\n
    bkLib.onDomLoaded(function() {
    nicEditors.allTextAreas({buttonList : [‘save’,’bold’,’italic’,’underline’,’left’,’center’,’right’,’justify’,’ol’,’ul’,’fontSize’,’fontFamily’,’fontFormat’,’indent’,’outdent’,’image’,’upload’,’link’,’unlink’,’forecolor’,’bgcolor’,’subscript’,’superscript’]});
    }); \n”;
