dijit._editor.plugins.NewPage

Status:Draft
Version:1.0
Authors:Jared Jurkiewicz
Developers:Jared Jurkiewicz
Available:since V1.4

Have you ever wanted to be able to with the click of a button clear the editor and set it with some default content, be it an empty line of some template HTML? If so, then this plugin is for you. It’s a simple plugin that adds ‘NewPage’ support to the editor toolbar.

Features

Once required in and enabled, this plugin provides the following features to dijit.Editor.

  • Button with icon in toolbar for clearing the current editor contents and inserting pre-defined ‘new page’ content.
  • Configurable ‘New Page’ content via the ‘content’ parameter of the plugin

Usage

Basic Usage

Usage of this plugin is quite simple and painless. The first thing you need to do is require into the page you’re using the editor. This is done in the same spot all your dojo.require calls are made, usually a head script tag. For example:

dojo.require("dijit.Editor");
dojo.require("dijit._editor.plugins.NewPage");

Once it has been required in, all you have to do is include it in the list of extraPlugins (or the plugins property if you're reorganizing the toolbar) for you want to load into the editor. For example:

<div dojoType="dijit.Editor" id="editor" extraPlugins="['newpage']"></div>

And that's it. The editor instance you can reference by 'dijit.byId("editor")' is now enabled with the NewPage plugin! You can use the button to set the editor content to a 'new page'.

Custom New Content

To initialize the plugin with custom new page content, it is just a matter of passing a content parameter to the new page instantiation. For example:

<div dojoType="dijit.Editor" height="250px"id="input" extraPlugins="[{name: 'newpage', content: 'This is some <b>custom</b> content!'}]">

Or programmatically:

var editor = new dijit.Editor({extraPlugins: [{name: 'newpage', content: 'This is some <b>custom</b> content!'}]}
