#353 closed Bug (invalid) Editor in ModalPopupExtender throws error in Firefox

Reported by: BenHill Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: FCKeditor 2.4.2
Keywords: Pending Cc:


I am using the ModalPopupExtender from the new AJAX Toolbox Controls.

  1. Create a custom control that adds FCKEditor
  2. Add that control to an asp panel
  3. Assign that panel to the PopupControlID property of the ModalPopupExtender
  4. Assign a button to load the MPE
  5. Fire up the app - click on the the button to load the Editor

This creates the following error in javascript - the editor isn't editable unless you switch to source mode and back:

uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDOMNSHTMLDocument.execCommand]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: http://localhost/MyApp/script/fckeditor/editor/js/fckeditorcode_gecko.js :: anonymous :: line 31" data: no]

i have determined that the error is coming from this command: FCK.EditorDocument.execCommand(A,false,B);

This happens due to a known Firefox bug. Check out the Test Case 4:

roger. Is there a workaround?

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by BenHill

I have tried a couple things.

Adding this js around the error-producing line:

try {


} catch(err) {

FCK.MakeEditable(); FCK.EditorDocument.execCommand(A,false,B);


...that fixes the problem, but only after the first operation (eg make some text bold) is called and doesn't fire.

I have also tried adding a client event to the button firing the ModalPopupExtender, but I can't seem to get a reference to the FCK object (I have reviewed your api documentation, still no luck).

So I'm a little stuck.

Had an error like this under firefox/iceweasel 2.003: A not editable editor. When I try to switch to "bold" the I got the exception. The application I used, loads the fckeditor.html in an iframe.

My workaround to fix the uneditable: I disabled the resizing in Window_OnResize() fuction:

--- editor/fckeditor.html
+++ editor/fckeditor.html
@@ -183,6 +183,7 @@
        function Window_OnResize()
                if ( FCKBrowserInfo.IsOpera )
                        return ;

This workaround doesn't work on a directly loaded fckeditor.html.

Maybe it's a timing problem on the gecko-engine? I got 2 additional errors on the console while load:

Error: this._Window.document.body has no properties 
Source File: http://localhost/phpgwapi/js/fckeditor/editor/_source/classes/fckpanel.js Line: 57


Error: this.LinkedField has no properties
Source File: http://localhost/phpgwapi/js/fckeditor/editor/_source/internals/fck.js Line: 36

Sorry, my version of FCKeditor is 2.4.1 Build 14797

Replying to rl:

My workaround to fix the uneditable: I disabled the resizing in Window_OnResize() fuction:


Hm ... Now I'm not sure, if these change made the effect. Also when pressing the "New" Button, the editor become functionable.

... so the workaround above is obsolete for me!

As commented before, a solution for it can be found at Test Case 4: source:FCKeditor/trunk/_testcases/004.html

Look for the MakeEditable function.

Does it closes this problem?
