Topic: WYSIWYG Editor saving problem suggestion

Topcathk free asked 4 years ago

Currently the editor fail to record the last typed character and style change(bolding words, changing text color etc.) if no key is pressed afterwards.

Here is the way to reproduce the result:

<textarea id="example"> </textarea>
<button type="button" id="btn" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm">Save</button>
    $('#btn').on('click', () => {alert($('#example').val());});

Post from the past ( ), mentioned that the problem is due the wrong event ''keypress" is used (which is still not fixed)

$("#wysiwyg-".concat(this.uuid)).on('keypress', this.updateNativeTextarea.bind(this));

However even if I follow the solution, the problem is still not solved (changing the event from 'keypress' to 'keydown'). And I found a temporary solution, to change the event from 'keypress' to 'input'. The editor is working as intended.

$("#wysiwyg-".concat(this.uuid)).on('input', this.updateNativeTextarea.bind(this));

MDB Team please fix the issues ASAP as this has been left for quite a long time.

I just downloaded WYSIWYG version 4.8.11 and this problem still exists. Has it been fixed? Or, am I just missing something?

Thank you!
