[Announcement] HTML Edit Web Update 1.3

Hello everyone!
Some updates for HTML Edit today! This update brings the new features to HTML Edit for Web! The nice thing about the Web version is that it does’t rely on HTML Viewer and that whole outdated Chromium Embedded Framework headache :wink:

I’ve also made the demo notice much less aggressive if you accidentally deploy with the demo control!

Insert Links
Now accompanying the ability to insert images is a built in function to insert links. After discovering how hard it was to ensure the link ended up in the same place both in text and HTML, I decided it was prudent to have an insert link function. Now the link will end up exactly where you want it. It’s as easy as InsertLink("http://url", "Link Title")

Visual Cue for Enabled: False
There is now a visual cue (the control becomes faded) for when HTML Edit is disabled by setting the Enabled property to false. No Windows issues here!

Literal Characters
Thanks to the new users from the latest bundle it was discovered that the JavaScript literals were not being handled appropriately! Version 1.9 corrects this issue; now \ , \\r, and \\t are no longer lost when setting and getting HTML content.

Full Changes

  • InsertLink()

  • , \r, \t are no longer converted into JavaScript characters
  • Visual cue for when the control is disabled
  • Less aggressive demo notice, stays within the control bounds now

Try It Out!
Give the demo a try! It’s fully functional in debug mode. To build or deploy, purchase a license for $79

About HTML Edit
HTML Edit is a drop in control that helps desktop developers get and set HTML for WYSIWYG Rich Text editing. This Xojo wrapper / translator harnesses the power of Quill. You can slam complex markup at the control and it will render quickly, and display just as the markup would in a browser. To make things easy it mimics much of the functionality of a TextArea, so you already know how to use it. HTML Edit lets you use native Xojo code to control the Quill editor, so you’re working with strings, booleans, and colors - instead of sorting out JavaScript errors.
