No way to set minHeight of richtext when instantiating Editor

it is not possible to set minHeight when instantiating the editor with dojo.widget.fromScript. It should look something like this: editorArgs = { items: ["textGroup", "linkGroup"], minHeight:"300px"}; this.editor = dojo.widget.fromScript("Editor", editorArgs, dojo.byId("the_editor"));

This is needed because when the editor has just a single line of height, it is hard to drag&drop html to it.

This is a hack to set the height without an api function.

function() {

h=80; this._richText.minHeight=h+"px";"px"; if(this._richText.iframe) {

this._richText._lastHeight=h; this._richText.iframe.height =h+"px";



the bind function is from the prototype library, I am not fluent in dojo but I am sure there is an equivalent. Bind() sets the context in that the function will be executed.

I had to start this function with a window.setTimeout of 1000, because the iframe is not existent onload.

Dojo does not pollute the Function object prototype and uses dojo.lang.hitch() instead. Additionally, the Editor component calls functions which we can interecept and/or listen to using dojo.event.connect(). The (much safer) Dojo way to write this would be:

var doOnCreate = dojo.lang.hitch(this.editor, function(){
   var h=80;
   if(this._richText.iframe) {
     this._richText.iframe.height =h+"px";

// only call this method when the editor is available
dojo.event.connect(this.editor, "fillInTemplate", "doOnCreate");
