Topic: Wysiwyg - dropdowns open and immediately close

meesha81 priority asked 1 month ago

This bug can be (and IMHO is) connected to my previous reported bug with dropdowns:

I can tell you, that I have find out during this bugreport that behavior is the same with my common dropdown bugreport. Only difference is animation on|off. With animation, you can see double event - open and close. Without animation you can se "nothing".

What is wrong: If you init WYSIWIG and then reload content dynamically and do once more init, dropdowns (text color, styles etc.) are not usable, because after open they are immediatelly closed. It looks like chaining events. Disponse do not destroy dropdowns events or dropdowns have problem with invalid removing from dom (some events remains..?).

  1. Open snippet
  2. Click INIT => wysiwyg = CORRECT
  3. Reload content => wysiwyg lost = CORRECT
  4. Click INIT => wysiwyg looks fine, BUT DROPDOWN menu is not usable, becase is closed immediatelly.

So this bug is probably consequence of bug in dropdown menus described in my previous bugreport.

You suspect the WYSIWYG dropdown issue is related to a previously reported bug ( Both involve dropdowns not working after content reload and re-initialization. You believe it might be an event chaining issue where the open event triggers the close event immediately. The provided snippet ([] ( seems to confirm this behavior.
