Dear Sir,

I wondered why 'ShowDetails' button on toolbar is not available. Do you know a workaround? TIA.

I don't see any "Show details" button. Can you clarify?

'ShowDetails' was in oldest version of FCKeditor, now it seems not supported. Why? It was very useful!

The old version dosn't seems to work for me, so you'll have to explain better what do you want

I attached the configuration file of the toolbar of FCK v. 1.6, where you can see the 'ShowDetails' function that it shows all page's formats.

Do you have some news for me?

Could you please let me know if there is the possibility to have 'showDetails" function?

The Show Details function depends on the Microsoft DHTML Editing Component (DEC), an ActiveX control. But as I understand FCKeditor is no longer using DEC for the editing area, since it is IE-only.

If the Show Details function were to appear in FCKeditor now or in the future, it will have to be reimplemented from scratch in JavaScript. In the 1.6 source code it was just setting a flag in the ActiveX control, but now it is no longer possible.

Yes, as Martin explained, that was a feature of the DHTMLEdit ActiveX component we were using on versions 1.x. MS has discontinued supporting it, removing also its documentation from MSDN, but I found a saved copy of it somewhere in the web.

I don't see chances to support such feature on future versions of FCKeditor. We'll much probably have specific handling systems for some of its related features, like comments and scripts icons (like we have today for anchors), but we'll not have the same behavior we had with FCKeditor 1.x.
