Control.TextArea Cross Browser Textarea Manipulation

Posted · Category: Forms, MIT License

Flexible WYSIWYG editing in the browser is still an inconsistent affair at best in terms of user experience, integration effort, and generated markup. In the meantime a crop of text formatting languages such as Markdown, Textile, BBCode and wiki markup have emerged as ways for users to enter rich content in a controlled enviornment.

Control.TextArea provides a toolbar for textareas where users are entering text in one of these markup languages. In addition to a toolbar it provides access to a cross browser text selection and manipulation API so that creating new functionality, or integration with your custom application features is vastly easier. The design of Control.TextArea is very clean and clear. It requires Prototype.js to work.

    kuldeep: NicEdit, TinyMce and FCKEditor have already been mentioned here.. and Control.Textarea serves quite a different purpose anyway :)
