Redactor in a Custom Block

Permalink 3 users found helpful
Does anyone have an example of how to include the redactor 'bar' within a custom block that they might be willing to share with me? That seems to be my next 5.7 hurdle.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Chrouglas,

I just figured it out this morning. Here is a quick run down.

in controller.php

public function add()
{
    $this->requireAsset('redactor');
    $this->requireAsset('core/file-manager');
}

public function edit()
{
    $this->requireAsset('redactor');
    $this->requireAsset('core/file-manager');
}

in your form
$fp = FilePermissions::getGlobal();
$tp = new TaskPermission();

<script>
    var CCM_EDITOR_SECURITY_TOKEN = "<?php   echo Loader::helper('validation/token')->generate('editor')?>";
    $('#redactor-content').redactor({
            minHeight: '130',
            'concrete5': {
                filemanager: <?php   echo $fp->canAccessFileManager()?>,
                sitemap: <?php   echo $tp->canAccessSitemap()?>,
                lightbox: true
            },
            'plugins': [
                'fontfamily','fontsize','fontcolor','concrete5'
            ]
        });
</script>

<div class="form-group">
   <?php  echo $form->label('content', t('Content:'));?>
    <textarea style="display: none" id="redactor-content" name="content"><?php echo $content?></textarea>
</div>

in view.php
<div>
   <?php echo $content; ?>
</div>

in db.xml
<field name="content" type="X2"></field>

This is great, and I have got it working on the main site, but I am trying to configure a dashboard form that will require Redactor. I have following the same instructions but cannot get it to work on my Dashboard Single Page form.

Any suggestions?

That is a good question.

I don't have any example packages that use Redactor in a dashboard single page.

I have found the solution to this...

I placed the jquery for the redactor inside the following and it works ok.

(function($) {
    $(document).ready(function () {
...
...
    });
})(jQuery);


On to the next issue...
