CKEDITOR.currentInstance.openDialog('your-custom-dialogue'); Does not work in Opera

Opera 10, using CKEDITOR.currentInstance.openDialog('your-custom-dialogue'); in plugin.js as : an editor.addCommand doesn't work in Opera but does in Firefox. May crap out other browsers too?

I had to do an : alert( ); just to get the current instance name instead. In opera that fails on the first click of the plugin's toobar icon but works on the second, same as above.

The code was :

CKEDITOR.plugins.add( 'custom',

	requires: ['iframedialog'],
	lang : [ 'en' ],

	init : function( editor )

		var pluginName = 'custom';

		/* Register the dialog. */
		CKEDITOR.dialog.addIframe('your-custom-dialogue', 'your custom dialogue',this.path + 'dialogs/dialog.php',500,300,function(){ /* oniframeload */ })
		/* Register the command. */
		var command =  editor.addCommand('custom', {exec:customWindow});

		command.modes = { wysiwyg:1, source:1 };
		command.canUndo = false;

		/* Set the language and the command */
		editor.ui.addButton( 'custom',
				label : editor.lang.langCustom.label,
				command : pluginName



function customWindow() {
    /* run when custom button is clicked */


message: Cannot convert undefined or null to Object.

Using :

function customWindow() {
    /* run when custom button is clicked */


instead works as expected.

I'm not quite sure how to test this. Is this a known problem? Are there other plugins with custom dialogs that we could test?

As described here - - currentInstance works only if editor has focus.

For calling dialogs you should be using CKEDITOR.instances.instanceName.
