Web Based WYSIWYG Editor Control

Tabbed Multi-document Interface
New industry unique tabbed multi-document interface feature. Now you can edit virtually unlimited number of HTML snippets in a single WYSIWYG instance. This can save a lot of screen space, unnecessary scrolling and loading time compared to other solutions where you have to load as many WYSIWYG instances as HTML snippets you want to edit.

This way you can save loading time and achieve a better level of integration of the editing area into complex designs (no toolbar overhead).

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free, MIT License

Wysiwym Markdown editor (WMD) is a simple, lightweight HTML editor for blog comments, forum posts, and basic content management. You can add WMD to any textarea with one line of code. Add live preview with one line more. WMD works in nearly all modern browsers, and is now completely free to use. The next release will be open source under an MIT-style license. This is not a normal WYSIWYG editor.

Wysiwym stands for What You See Is What You Mean. WMD produces clean semantic HTML, leaving presentation details like fonts and colors up to style sheets. But you’re not left in the dark about cosmetics; as you type, WMD’s live preview shows you exactly what your text will look like after the current styles have been applied.

is a simple markup language that’s as easy to read and write as plain-text email. WMD uses Markdown as an input format, converting it into HTML behind the scenes. You can also mix raw HTML with Markdown, so the full expressiveness of HTML is always there if you need it.

Developing an Accessible Slider with jQuery

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License

Creating accessible Web2.0 applications can be a tricky process. Many of the advanced widgets and controls we develop today don’t exist in the current HTML specification — there is no “slider” element. So Filament Group has developed an accessible slider based on the core principle of progressive enhancement with jQuery.

Filament Group designed and developed an accessible slider with a very nice interface which allows users to choose one or a range of values on a continuum. Values on a slider can represent anything from hours on a clock to the volume on a music player to a complex, proprietary data set. In its simplest form, the slider is displayed as an axis of values with a handle to drag and select a value, or two handles for selecting a range.


The code is open source and licensed under GPL. You can view source to grab the code from this working example.

Integrate Password Strength Checker into Registration Forms

Posted · Category: Forms, GPL License

Password Strength Checker is an application that is designed to assess the strength of password strings. The instantaneous visual feedback provides the user a means to improve the strength of their passwords, with a hard focus on breaking the typical bad habits of faulty password formulation. Since no official weighting system exists, Password Strength Checker has created its own formulas to assess the overall strength of a given password.


Password Strength Check is written in Javascript and released under GPL License. You are allowed to download this application and integrate it into your web application. I am sure it will help users choosing a more secure password when filling in registration forms. However, this application is neither perfect nor foolproof, and should only be utilized as a loose guide in determining methods for improving the password creation process.

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.

Facebook List TextboxList with AutoCompletion

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free

Would you like to include an input that resembles the famous Apple Mail to: textfield? It would be something similar to Facebook List Input. Basically, it’s a group of pieces or bits, that can be either a box or an input. The user is able to move around between the bits by using his keyboard or his mouse. You can remove the bits by click the “x” symbol.


It has a auto complete feature as well. It works by caching all the results from a JSON Request and feeding them to the autocompleter object. When a item is added as a box, it’ removed from the feed array, and when the box is disposed it’s added back, so that it becomes available in the list when the user types. You’ll also be able to let it add boxes from the HTML directly. If you are interested in this amazing textboxlist, you can view the full article.

Requirements: Mootools 1.2+
