User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7 i have coded a wysiwyg editor and it works fine but when i change the innerHTML to anything (designMode is still on) the user cannot change the text until he/she type a char. in MSIE the user don't have to type anything it just works. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: if you have a iframe with a id edit (designMode='on') and have button like this <input type="button" onclick="document.getElementById('edit').contentDocument.body.innerHTML='<b>test</b>'" value="x" /> you will see this issue Actual Results: the user must type a char to be able to edit the text Expected Results: the user should be able to edit the text without typing a char
Can you provide with a testcase?
(In reply to comment #1) > Can you provide with a testcase? yes http://dragoran.hockrad02.de/editor/editor2.html klick test and try to edit the content... then enter any char and try it again
I dont know exaclty whats wrong here, i press the test button, and it adds "test", then i select the text and press bold, italic etc and it all works fine.

Confirming, to reproduce: 1. Press test button to insert "test" string 2. try to delete the inserted text with backspace.

Created attachment 187018 [details] test case Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050619 Firefox/1.0+ I'm activating designMode on window.onload here, since Fx 1.0.x has trouble with designMode in iframe onload. 500ms delay before setting innerHTML ensures plenty of time for the iframe contents to completely load.
Created attachment 187019 [details] workaround (also partially fixes Fx 1.0.x problems with iframe onload) The workaround consists of toggling off/on designMode after setting innerHTML: editor.body.innerHTML = 'abc'; editor.designMode = 'off'; editor.designMode = 'on'; Interestingly, this (along with the 0-delay setTimeout and nulling onload workarounds) toggling allows Fx 1.0.x to activate designMode on iframe onload. That means I don't need the 500ms delay before setting innerHTML.
After some more experimentation, the designMode toggling actually isn't necessary. designMode just needs to be set to 'on' again: editor.body.innerHTML = 'abc'; editor.designMode = 'on'; Also, the mentioned Fx 1.0.x iframe onload fix is the 0-time setTimeout.
I take that back. editor.body.innerHTML = 'abc'; editor.designMode = 'off'; editor.designMode = 'on'; is necessary for the latest build. editor.body.innerHTML = 'abc'; editor.designMode = 'on'; works for 1.0.5.
toggling off/on designMode after setting innerHTML still needed in Firefox 1.5 and Firefox 2.0
