I'm happily using cleditor with my jquery code and have read the available docs: (http://premiumsoftware.net/cleditor/docs/GettingStarted.html#usage) but I am still not able to fix one problem:

I have a textarea (id="input") which has cleditor applied to it and then gets the focus, using:

$('#tsTable').on('click', '.edit', function() {
  //other code
  //other code
  $('#input').cleditor()[0].focus();
}):

Open in new window

This works successfully, but the cursor in the textarea is at the beginning of the loaded content.  How do I get the cursor to be at the end of the loaded textarea text?

Thanks, but these did not work (because of the way cleditor works -- it hides the original textarea and creates its own iframe and related content).

After further searching, I finally found the "cleditor" specific solution which invovles using cleditor to insert the required text and then setting the focus.

The sytax which works is as follows (if anyone else has the same problem):

$('#input').cleditor({updateTextArea:function (){}})[0].execCommand('inserthtml', theHTML, null, null).focus();

where theHTML is the html to be displayed.

Here is the source for the solution (for further background understanding): http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5093076/cleditor-dynamic-adding-text
