cftextarea not working in IE 9

Mar 3, 2011 1:21 AM

cftextarea richtext does not appear to be functioning in the lastest RC of IE 9.

 

This code:

<cftextarea name="message" bindonload="no" height="450" width="650" toolbaronfocus="no" richtext="yes" toolbar="default" fontsizes="1em" skin="silver"> </cftextarea>

 

Works fine in FF and Chrome as well as IE8 - but not in IE 9. Is this an issue with FCKEditor or just IE (as usual?)

    Is there a way to convert CF8 or CF9 to use the new CKeditor 3.x (that works in IE9, or any other RTE)  instead of the FCKeditor that it ships with? essentially IE9 has broken all sites that use <cftextarea richtext="true"...

     

    Of course since it doesn't appear that Adobe has used the FCKeditor that ships with CF8 and 9 for this blog's rich text editor, it won't be a problem on this forum.

     

    But all of us who do use their product will.

    I am having the same issue, and it will likely poke its head a few more times as more of my clients install MSIE9, god bless 'em.

     

    Any movement on a new version of FCK being included in any upcoming patch, etc.?

     

    And wasn't there some way that you could point to a different spot for FCK? This would be particularly of interest for folks who have sites on remote hosts.

     

    Thanks,

    Just wanted to bump this post to see if there had been any solutions found.  What have you tried that did not work (so I don't have to painfully do the same steps that won't work)?

     

    Has Adobe responded to or addressed this topic?

    Hey -

     

    I haven't heard anything more about this problem.  We've told our users to stop

    using IE and start using Firefox.  Luckily, we do a lot of internal applications

    so we can do this.  Let me know if you figure anything out!

     

    Mike

    my best advice is don't try to use IE9. because found a lot of bugs in IE9 including jQuery issue.

    I have found that if I put the cftexarea RICHTEXT="yes" form on a page by itself, specifically without the <head> tag in it, it will work.  Inconvenient, but cftextarea is more user-friendly for my users than tinymce.
