Custom Iframe Plugin not working unless a system plugin is triggered first

Reported by: yveszx Owned by: Garry Yao
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 4.0
Component: UI : Dialogs Version: 4.0
Keywords: Cc:


I was able to replicate this with 3 different custom plugins with on chrome and IE9. If i don't click on image plugin or table plugin, when i try to trigger my custom plugin it will freeze after the overlay is loaded. nothing in the console

my plugins are very simple simple iframe plugin, ...

(function () {
        requires: ['iframedialog'],
        init: function (editor) {
            var me = this;

            CKEDITOR.dialog.add('InsertGlossaryDialog', function (targetEditor) {
                return {
                    title: 'InsertGlossary Dialog',
                    minWidth: 595,
                    minHeight: 500,
                           id: 'iframeGloss',
                           label: 'InsertGlossary',
                           expand: true,
                                type: 'html',
                                id: 'Glossary',
                                label: 'Glossary',
                                style: 'width : 100%;',
                                html: '<iframe src="' + me.path + 'dialogs/GlossaryIFRAME.aspx" frameborder="0" name="MyGlossary_' + + '" id="MyGlossary" allowtransparency="1" style="width:100%;height:490px;margin:0;padding:0;"></iframe>'
                    onOk: function () {
                        final_html = '<a class="glossary"  href="glossary.aspx?search=' + encodeURIComponent(content) + '" target="_blank">' + content + '&nbsp;<img border="0" src="/images/controls/info.png" width="20" /></a>';


            editor.addCommand('InsertGlossary', new CKEDITOR.dialogCommand('InsertGlossaryDialog'));

                label: 'InsertGlossary',
                command: 'InsertGlossary',
                icon: this.path + 'images/icon.gif'

to clarify the problem, none of the custom plugin work unless a system dialog is opened first.

Any none-user created "CkEditor" plugin will work (ie:replace, special char) any plugin triggered before my user created plugin will fix the problem.

if a System plugin is not triggered first, the overlay will show but the dialog window will not open.

To reproduce:

  1. Copy paste attached plugin into samples folder
  2. On E.g. replacebycode page add extraPlugins : 'insertglossary' and toolbar : ['InsertGlossary']
  3. Load the page and click newly added toolbar button


  1. No dialog will show up, just the "dialog_background_cover". There will be no JavaScript errors thrown.
  2. If you open any non ifrme dialog plugin (even new custom one) and then open this plugin everything will be working fine. Seems that iframe dialog plugin is not able to load/init dialog code.
  3. Please note that this is true only for iframe dialog plugins and it does not matter whether you add iframe with CKEDITOR.dialog.addIframe(... or like in this example html: '<iframe src="' + me.path +

If confirmed to be a regression, we should try to have it fixed for the 4.0.

Opened t/9376 on both dev and tests, it fixes the missing dialog skin file to be loaded, when dialog definition is locally available.
