WYSIWYG HTML editor component?
Can anyone recommend any components that allow WYSIWYG HTML editing, similar to how CityDesk works? I'm using Windows Forms, however; an ActiveX component would work as well. Thanks.
Microsoft's DHTML editing component might be handy. I've never tried hosting it in .NET.
Yeah, just use the one built into IE, which is what Joel does with CityDesk, I believe.
I recommend this one:
Nemesis had the right idea. I pulled out Spy++ to see the class name of the WYSIWYG designer in CityDesk and saw that its just 'InternetExplorer_Server.' This is just IE in edit mode and the feature set is described nicely here:
Is there one that does NOT rely on IE.
There aren't a lot of those out there, but here are those I found so far:
Aidan, I also use Firefox, however; the fact that MSHTML sits on every Windows box out there is a key factor. Also, its only for standard HTML editing, so the user generated HTML shouldn't be locked in to IE alone.
I am partial to http://xstandard.com because it does not use the MSHTML control. This editor generates real XHTML.
Aidan: http://www.kevinroth.com/rte/demo.htm is one of many HTML editors built around the Mozilla editor API. It works on reasonably recent Mozilla (including Firefox), the latest Netscape, and IE5+ on Windows. Ironically, IE's implementation of the Mozilla editor API is somewhat better than Mozilla's.
What's the efforts needed for developing a WYSIWYG HTML Editor using a GC support language like Java or C#?
There is a nice list of WYSIWYG HTML Editors available at:
I've found one at http://nbit.net.au. It seems quite easy to use and implement.
