#6742 closed Bug (expired)

IE: insertHtml still has problems with contenteditable

Reported by: Dinu Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 3.4
Keywords: Cc:


Probably related to #6005
Don't know how to produce a code to reproduce

Visual explanation:

[<span contenteditable="false">foo</span>]
insertHtml('<span contenteditable="false">bar</span>');

The content is added after the selected element instead of replacing it. insertElement works dandy though. I think the selection needs to be deleted altogether.

It's important that such a sample range comes from a real IE selection but not just pure assumption, could you find a real TC for this?

I got to this by the following procedure:

  • set editor contents to <span contenteditable="false">foo</span>
  • ...(get span element)...
  • editor.selection.selectElement(spanElement)
  • editor.insertHtml('<span contenteditable="false">bar</span>')

This results in <span contenteditable="false">foo</span><span contenteditable="false">bar</span> in the editor. I didn't find a way to make IE produce a [<span>...</span>] by user interaction, seems to me it's always <span>[...</span>] but I have limited experience with this.

I use this programatically as widget-editing (widget means special format <span>...</span>); so on toolbar button click, identify <span> and selectElement for replacing with edited contents, which in my understanding should replace the whole-and-nothing-but-concerned-element with the updated element. Lest there's another way to do it?

var editor = CKEDITOR.instances.editor1;
editor.setData('a<span contenteditable=false id=xxx>TEXT</span>a');
// wait...
ar el = editor.document.getById('xxx');

// and:
// or:

On IE8 - insertion is blocked - nothing happens. On Chrome - insertion overwrites span element.

It's hard to say what's the expected result, but it should be consistent - selection that contains only non editable element (or is anchored inside one) should be handled block insertion or insertion should overwrite that element.

This might be happening due to selection not being released. If you add timeout like below you will get consistent results in both Chrome and IE.

editor.on('instanceReady', function(evt){
	editor.setData('a<span contenteditable=false id=xxx>TEXT</span>a');
	var el = editor.document.getById('xxx');
	// or:

Taking the above into account this issue may be a duplicate of #10079
