        • This is just fantastic! It works right out the box, and will be a great tool from now on. Thanks allot for making this plugin. laugh
            I think, thererfor I am! But what I am, and why...?
          • i am using the css as document trick, would this plugin give my css syntax highlighting?
            • You are incredible! This is exactly what I need since the first day I use MODx. Just the highlighting and the ability to use TAB alone worth everything!

              I recommend that this plugin to be included in MODx package as core plugin!

              BTW, is it possible to resize the editarea size?

                EditArea core code support the CSS syntax... So, I’ll try to add this functionality in a future release wink

                  EditArea core code support both Resizing and Full Screen mode... But, for the moment, I’ve some problems with these functionalities in MODx huh

                    From the Snippet call in the download:

                     * @known bugs/issues
                     *             - Resizing of the editor doesn't seem to function as expected (only tested in Win/FF 1.5/2+)
                     *             - New Full Screen feature does not function as expected per Frame constraints
                     *             - 
                    


                    To clarify, these are known issues of utilizing EditArea within MODx Manager, not specific to EditArea alone.

                    • I was looking exactly for this feature for a long time! Thanks a lot for that man it’s really great and nicely working. Good tool for the admins! except for the known bugs and a weird visual bug when copy/pasting, i don’t have anything to say excepted : "wow! it’s finally there!".

                      I also got two ideas for a future release :

                      1- I often use the file manager to edit some CSS documents and PHP files. It would be great to have EditArea in the file manager highlighting the files depending on the file type. I don’t know if the event system let you do this, but it would be really usefull to have HTML, PHP and CSS highlighting (and maybe XML too... I don’t use it but maybe some people do!)

                      2- I guess this one would require to modify the EditArea code directly, but adding highlighting to MODx tags in HTML mode would be a great even if not necessary

                      Again thanks a lot for that man!

                      bye,
