TINYMCE Textbox not updating

Hi,

I have a textbox that is using TinyMce and it works fine, but when I enter in text and then click save it doesn't make it through to my SQL string to insert into the database.

Below is the code for my textbox

<asp:TextBox ID="txtArticle" Enabled="false" runat="server" Height="250px" TextMode="MultiLine" Width="600px"></asp:TextBox>

Then the code below is the code Im using in the codebehind

string ShortArticle = txtPlainText.Text;

string query1 = "UPDATE database SET shortArticle='" + ShortArticle + "' WHERE newsid='" + newsid + "'";

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards

Michael

try this,

have a javascript function
<script type="text/javascript">
function UpdateTextArea() {                                     
            tinyMCE.triggerSave(false, true);
        }
</script>

Open in new window


call it before submitting,
<asp:Button ID="itheButton" runat="server" OnClientClick="UpdateTextArea();"  />

Open in new window

Sorry the code is below:

<asp:TextBox ID="txtArticle" Enabled="false" runat="server" Height="250px" TextMode="MultiLine" Width="600px"></asp:TextBox>

string ShortArticle = txtArticle.Text;

string query1 = "UPDATE database SET shortArticle='" + ShortArticle + "' WHERE newsid='" + newsid + "'";
