Any Html Editor that can be Embedded in Windows 8 Apps ?

    Question

  • Hey,

    I'd tried binging much but couldn't find any Html Editor that could be embedded in our Windows 8 Applications. Is there any recommended Editor that can be used in JS based Windows 8 Application which could have the ability to attach Images etc.

    Best example could be: An Html Editor that could be used for adding entries in blog! Are there any 3rd Party Editors ready?

    The worst case would be, myself writing whole HTML Editor...

    Thanks

  • There are lots of HTML editors out there for the web and my guess is that they would plug in just fine to a WinJS app.  Some popular ones:

    TinyMCE

    CK Editor

    WMD

  • Hey Brain,

    Thanks for informing about these editors, I did try many editors including, TinyMCE , Kendou etc. However, most of them failed due to security reasons of Windows 8 Apps. (Their .js files tried to add dynamic content, and there is a turn around of it by using "MSApp.execUnsafeLocalFunction" however thats not a perfect solution I guess)
