Hi

I am trying to create an xtext web editor using Ace in a div with an id other than xtext-editor. I have tried the following

				editor = xtext.createEditor({
					xtextLang: "infomodel",				
					syntaxDefinition: "xtext/mode-infomodel",
					serviceUrl: "/infomodel/xtext-service",
					enableFormattingAction: "true",
					showErrorDialogs: "true",
					parent: "xtext-editor-parent"
				});


		<div id="editor-container">
                <div data-editor-parent="xtext-editor-parent"></div>               
	    </div>


This method does not create an xtext editor in the div.

I have also tried using the following method

				editor = xtext.createEditor();
				xtext.createServices(editor,{
					xtextLang: "infomodel",				
					syntaxDefinition: "xtext/mode-infomodel",
					serviceUrl: "/infomodel/xtext-service",
					enableFormattingAction: "true",
					showErrorDialogs: "true",
					parent: "xtext-editor-parent"
				});


This gives an error:
xtext-ace.js:1486 Uncaught TypeError: this.editor.getSession is not a function

Could someone please help me with this

Thanks
Shiv

ps the following works for me

xtext.createEditor({
					baseUrl: baseUrl,
					syntaxDefinition: "xtext-resources/generated/mode-mydsl5",
					parent: "xtext-editor2"
				});
<div class="container">
	<div class="header">
		<h1>Example MyDsl Web Editor 2</h1>
	</div>
	<div class="content">
		<div id="xtext-editor2" data-editor-xtext-lang="mydsl5"></div>
	</div>
</div>
#xtext-editor2 {
	display: block;
	position: absolute;
	top: 0;
	bottom: 0;
	left: 0;
	right: 0;
	padding: 4px;
	border: 1px solid #aaa;
}


i asume you have already fixed the WebModule

class MyDslWebModule extends AbstractMyDslWebModule {

	def void configureIPreferenceValuesProvider(Binder binder) {
		binder.bind(IPreferenceValuesProvider).annotatedWith(FormatterPreferences).to(FormatterPreferenceValuesProvider)
	}
}
