#9871 confirmed Bug

Please provide collapse toolbar button for inline mode

Reported by: Jakub Ś Owned by:

Component: General Version: 4.0 Beta

Currently editor inline has no collapse toolbar button because there was no real use case for it.

There is one use case that depends on other feature being implemented. Feature #7280 "switch toolbar at runtime" talks about changing toolbar definitions when command is executed - collapseToolbar or other like maximize toolbar button is pressed.

What CKEditor should do is provide ability to change toolbar at runtime and provide some hooks (events) when button is pressed. That way, users could create behaviour they want with any or almost any plugin.

Agreed that implementing this button so that some users could use it for their custom needs is an edge case but think what is the better place to do so than this little and nice looking button (better then button outside of editor) :)
Besides there might be other use cases that users will come up with.

We use CKEditor inline in our application. The floating toolbar in nice and we have it enabled. A user can place objects on a page in our application such as images and text blocks. When editing a text block below an image the toolbar floats over the image and makes it hard to line up or evaluate. We are going to allow our users to turn off/close the toolbar, it would have been nice if the ability to collapse the toolbar would have been included because I feel that might have worked well for us.

Anybody have a work around or suggestion how to implement collapse/expand toolbars for inline editors?
