The caretPos object and selecting text in a TextArea
Posted on 2004-08-08
1) I cannot find any references for the caretPos object. Could anyone provide a good link to an API for this object?
2) The problem I am trying to solve by using caretPos is that I need to make a non-WYSIWYG html editor. All of the end-users will be using IE 5.5+, so browser compatibility should not be an issue. My question is whether or not using caretPos is an appropriate strategy for solving this problem. I'm not against using some third party tool (I'd even pay if it's a good value), but I will need to be able to add proprietary non-HTML tags. So the tool will have to (at the very least) allow me to insert text at a location that I specify.
