#6633 closed Bug (invalid)

No events after setData

After you set the editor data via editor.setData(html) no more (key) events are fired on the body.

Example Code:

editor.document.getBody().on("keyup", function() {

alert("keyup event");

}); editor.setData("...");

After that, the keyup event will never be fired again. Maybe the editor creates a complete new body when calling setData (which implicitly removes the listeners)?

Yes, a new document is created when setData is used and you must re-attach any listeners that you applied to the document or its contents.

But when do i re-attach the events? Is there an event fired after the setData is complete?

To help future searchers: I found the answer at

In particular, you attach on listeners the contentDom event, but you must also detach the listeners on contentDomUnload so that the new listeners work each time.
