Integration step by step

Step 1

Suppose that the editor is installed in the /fckeditor/ path of your web site. The first thing to do is to include the "ASP Integration Module" file in the top of your page, just like this:

<!-- #INCLUDE file="/fckeditor/fckeditor.asp" -->

Step 2

Now FCKeditor is available and ready to use. Just insert the following code in your page to create an instance of the editor (usually inside a <form> tag):

<%
Dim oFCKeditor
Set oFCKeditor = New FCKeditor
oFCKeditor.BasePath = "/fckeditor/"
oFCKeditor.Value = "<p>This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href=""http://www.fckeditor.net/"">FCKeditor</a>."
oFCKeditor.Create "FCKeditor1"
%>

In the above example, BasePath is set to the URL path to the FCKeditor installation folder. The Create method receives the "FCKeditor1" parameter, which is the name used to post the editor data on forms.

Step 3

The editor is now ready to be used. Just open the page in your browser to see it at work.

Sample Code

The complete sample - find the full sample in your Samples directory.

<!-- #INCLUDE file="/fckeditor/fckeditor.asp" -->
<html>
<head>
<title>FCKeditor - Sample</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
<form action="sampleposteddata.asp" method="post" target="_blank">

<%
Dim oFCKeditor
Set oFCKeditor = New FCKeditor
oFCKeditor.BasePath = "/fckeditor/"
oFCKeditor.Value = "<p>This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href=""http://www.fckeditor.net/"">FCKeditor</a>."
oFCKeditor.Create "FCKeditor1"
%>

<br />
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>
</body>
</html>

Handling the posted data

The editor instance just created will behave like a normal <textarea> field in a form. To retrieve its value you can do something like this:

<%
Dim sValue
sValue = Request.Form( "FCKeditor1" )
%>

In the above example, "FCKeditor1" is the parameter passed to the Create method when creating the editor instance.
