Topic: Wysiwyg documentation

Dave Moniz priority asked 2 years ago

Is there a method similar to getCode() that instead of getting the value of the wysiwyg, it sets it. For example setCode().

This would be useful for a form reset. I need to know how to programmatically empty the wysiwyg.

Also there's some issues with the documentation for the wysiwyg:

There are many methods/attributes available in the MdbWysiwygComponent that are completely missing from the documentation.

Code below is taken from the docs - "currentValue" below is undefined

import { Component, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { MdbWysiwygComponent } from 'mdb-angular-wysiwyg';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
export class AppComponent {
  @ViewChild('wysiwyg') wysiwyg: MdbWysiwygComponent;

  getValue() {

@Dave Moniz The WYSIWYG component works like a custom Angular form control, you can use formControl/ngModel methods in order to set/get the editor value (just like in regular input element).

Thank you for pointing out errors in the documentation, we will fix that and add more examples for form controls.
