Topic: Setting WYSIWYG Editor Content

smachesney free asked 1 year ago


Hi

I'd like to set the value of the editor on initialization. Right now, in the API, I see there is a method for getCode(), however I don't see one for example setCode().

How would I do this? I tried playing around with append html or setting innerHTML() but neither works. When I was using the old MDB4 jQuery version all I had to do was .val().

Thanks

I was able to get it working by setting the content into the element with class "wysiwyg-content"

$('.wysiwyg .wysiwyg-content').html('test');

You just need to add the html you want to add to the WYSIWYG

<div class="wysiwyg" data-mdb-wysiwyg="wysiwyg">
    <p>example code</p>
    <ul>
        <li>example list</li>
        <li>example list</li>
    </ul>
</div>

Thanks Grzegorz, is there anyway to do it via jQuery or javascript?

Unfortunately not. There is no special method or way we recommend that you do this with JS/JQ. We recommend doing it as in the example above.
