For about a week now I've been trying to run the run a function when my instance of CKEditor receives focus. I've been trying this:

<textarea class="ckeditor" cols="30" id="editor1" name="editor1" rows="10" onFocus="editorReset();" >Enter the body text of your ad here.</textarea>

Where I want to run the function "editorReset();" onFocus, but this doesn't work.  Then today I found this in the CKEditor documentation:


focus(editor)
Fired when the editor instance receives the input focus.

Fired when the editor instance receives the input focus.
Defined in: focusmanager.js.

NO EXAMPLE AVAILABLE

Parameters:
{CKEDITOR.eventInfo} e
    The standard event object passed to event listeners.
{CKEDITOR.editor} e.editor
    The editor instance.

I think this is what I'm looking for, but I'm not familiar enough with Javascript to know how to implement it. Does it go in the config.js file? Below is my config.js file and I've included my page code. Could someone show me how to integrate the above code to run the "editorReset();" function onFocus? Thanks a bunch.

CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function( config )
{
      // Define changes to default configuration here. For example:
      // config.language = 'fr';
      // config.uiColor = '#AADC6E';
      config.toolbar = 'Full';  
      
      config.toolbar_Full = [ ['Copy','Paste','PasteText','PasteFromWord', 'SpellChecker', 'Scayt'],     ['Undo','Redo'] ];  
      
      config.toolbar_Basic = [     ['Bold', 'Italic', '-', 'NumberedList', 'BulletedList', '-', 'Link', 'Unlink','-','About'] ];
      
      config.resize_enabled = false;
      
      config.width = '286px';
      
      config.scayt_autoStartup = true;
      
      config.removePlugins = 'elementspath';
      
};

Use :

            if(editor) editor.destroy(true);
            editor = CKEDITOR.replace("editor1");
            editor.on("focus",onFire);
