Re: Extending Dojo Rich Text Editor's Toolbar

Thank you for posting this, it was a godsend for us.

Hopefully these same changes will still work OK under Domino 9.0.1FP5.

Hi Nathan,

To get the new JavaScript behavior, you need to use Designer to open the form and set the rich text field's "Web Access" attribute (near the bottom of the first of the properties tabs) to Display Using JavaScript Control.

Browsers cache cleared. The database is not local.

Do i have to do something to make this happen?

"Dojo Rich Text Editor when the rich text item's web editor is set to 'JavaScript'"

Hi Nathan,

Let's start by eliminating the usual culprits - did you try clearing your browser's cache? Are you doing web preview in Designer on a local database?

Hi David,

I don't understand what you mean by 'substitute the dojo.require()' - could you explain / give an example?

If you want to provide a new widget, it has to go somewhere... if you don't want that to be the filesystem, you could put it in an nsf.

The dojo.require() understands things to be relative to the dojo.js file location. If you put your new widget in an nsf, I could imagine you would have to provide the entire Dojo install there too. Interesting idea!

I am trying to get this to work using the Classic Web Server way. I want this to remain a server wide setting.

I have thus modified the dom_richtext.htm file with the following modifications:


as well as

extraPlugins: ['|', 'insertImage', 'createLink', '|']

I chose to leave 'formatblock' out of this Rich text control. I have also restarted http and have seen no changes to the rich text control. What am I missing here? I can be reached at nlarkin [at]

I would appreciate the help. This is a show stopper for me at the moment.

Notes only

Hi, thats what I am looking for -Great

But will there be any way to do this jst in notes, without copying something to the filesystem?

My problem is how to substitute the dojo.require().

Do you know any way to do this?

kind regards

Nice Article!

Great Article Steve! I've been looking to extend the toolbar to add in the createLink plugin for awhile now.

Thanks for putting this together.
