#6577 closed Bug (fixed)

selection error when editor element is hidden

Low Priority

Firebug Error: "q is null" stack trace: "createBookmarks()ckeditor.js (line 119) q(A=Object { _=Object, elementMode=1, more...})ckeditor.js (line 89) isArray()ckeditor.js (line 9) [Break On This Error] A.setStart(B.$,z.startOffset);A.setEnd...u=s&&s[1];if(t)q.attributes.width=t;" (ah the joys of compiled code)

This error occurs after all my code has finished running. I'm guessing from farther down in the onLoad queue?

It has something to do with the offending ckeditor being attached to a completely empty and hidden(as in a parent tag has the 'display:none' property set) textarea. If I put some initial text inside the textarea tag, OR make the textarea visible the error doesn't occur.

My application is complex, and I haven't been able to reproduce the error yet in a simplified form yet. When/if I can, I'll post it.

This error only occurs in FireFox and SeaMonkey. It does not occur in Safari, Opera, IE, or Chrome. All tested on Windows XP with fairly recent versions.

uncompressed error: Firebug Error: selection is null Stack Trace: (?)()plugin.js (line 1331) activateEditing(editor=Object { _=Object, elementMode=1, more...})plugin.js (line 258) (?)()tools.js (line 455) [Break On This Error] selection.removeAllRanges();

basically "var selection = this.document.getSelection().getNative();" fails and is not handled.

  • Milestone set to CKEditor 3.5.1

#6752 was marked as duplicate.

Note that all we need here is a simple if statement in the selection plugin suggested in #6752 to get rid of a javascript error in Firefox when loading CKEditor:

if (selection) {
   selection.addRange( nativeRange );
