What is the best way to include a WYSIWYG HTML Editor in an (ideally standalone) SWT application?

Ideally something similar to Swing's JEditorPane.

If there isn't an existing widget, any advice on third-party libraries or workarounds would be gratefully received.

Many thanks in advance

Hi,

You can put the native browsers into design mode by executing some
javascript:

String type = browser.getBrowserType();
if (type.equals("ie")) {
// not sure why "document.designMode='On';" doesn't work for IE
browser.execute("document.body.contentEditable='true';");
} else {
browser.execute("document.designMode='On';");
}

Invoking Browser.getText() at any point gives you the resulting HTML when
using IE and Mozilla, but I notice that this still gives the original page
HTML content with Safari. Perhaps an alternate way to get the current HTML
would be to evaluate a javascript expression (eg.- for IE:
browser.evaluate("return document.documentElement.outerHTML;"), didn't try
the other browser types).

HTH,
Grant
