RTE Clean Up Pasted Text?

Feb 25, 2011

Lots on the web about this, but finding it difficult to piece everything together.I have a simple (jquery) RTE I've built using usual tools (IFRAME with execcommand functions).I want to be able to strip all html tags from anything copied and pasted into the iframe (specifically to remove the residual junk from MS word).I have this to capture the paste event (which works)

$('iframe#rte').contents().find("body").bind('paste', function() { alert('pasting!'); })

MY question is this: How do I target the pasted copy (only) and strip out the tags?I was previously doing this with PHP on submitting the page, but can't do that as I obviously want to keep the valid html tags added by the RTE itself - I changed the PHP to just remove <span> tags - but this is no good as some browsers write execcommand(bold) as <span class="bold">text</span>.

Inserting A Linebreak To A Textarea?

Sep 15, 2009

I am sending some information from one page to another using Form and Link. This generates a string of text in the receiving url, which I am extracting and displaying in a textarea. How do I insert a linebreak in the javascript code? With this line of code:

document.getElementById("Requirements").value = "Top line: "+ topline + "Your breakfast contains: "+ menuitems;

everything that is being returned is running together. I need it to run on separate lines. I can't control it with box width because the entries will vary on each occasion. I assume there is an escape character like in php or a break tag like in HTML, but I don't know what it is!

Newline Different Character Length Php And Js

Nov 4, 2009

I have a textarea field that is validated by Js, this textarea can and will contain the newline character so I validate in JS if(textareaname.value.length < 200)this hten goes through to my php where i also check before I place in to the Database using MYSQL,if( strlen($_POST['textareaname']) < 200 )but my php is giving me a different string length from my javascript.It looks as if Javascript is counting a newline as 1 character and php is treating it as 2.I have checked my slashes, I have used various REgex to check these data amounts. I have also Googled around and there doesnt seem much I can make php and javascript treat a newline as the same amount of characters?

Retrieve The Value In TextArea With The Newline Preserved.

Jul 23, 2005

I am trying to retrieved the value of the textarea with the newline
preserved without having to submit the form to the server. Does anyone
knows how to? I tried soft and hard wrap but both does not seems to
affect the input in anyway.

Example :
<form name=frm>
<textarea name=ta wrap="soft"></textarea>
<script language=javascript>
alert(document.frm.ta.value) // <-- the alerted value should look
exactly as what is entered in the textbox.

Dec 10, 2009

my javascript does not working after I retrieve a record that contains square symbol in the database. The square symbol should be a newline in a textarea. This is how the record "looks" in the table: [URL]

Auto Fill Text Box When Text Entered Into Another Text Box?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a form with 9 text fields and a text area. What I want to do is replace the text in the text area depending on how many fields contain text. For example my text boxes are named 1 to 9, if the user enters text in the first five boxes I want the text area to auto fill with 'you have selected boxes 1 to 5' if the user selects all nine it will say 'you have selected 1 to 9', therefore, the user must complete the text boxes in order. I have it working with an onchange event but i have a button on the form to also auto fill the text boxes and it does not work if this is clicked
