Evil Science A whole load of stuff


A perplexing problem with FCKEditor solved….

A perplexing problem I encountered with FCKEditor 2.6.3 was solved with the help of the internet. Well fancy that! Rather than recount my own problems, I'll use the words of others who encountered the same problem and paste, slightly reformat and present them, verbatim, below.

i have sucessfully implemented the editor into my .net application (vb.net) the editor works fine and configured how i wanted it, only isusse is when you go and click on the image uploader and then go to the upload tab, select the file and then click the "send it to server" button it comes up with the status bar and just hangs and does nothing. it does not upload the file all it does is show the status bar and does not move of it.

Any Sugguestions, i have altered the config.ascx file and also the fckconfig file and i belive i have pointed it to the correct file location see bellow for config.ascx and fckconfig.

Quoted from this post, where much tooing and froing occurred until a kind gentleman (or woman) posted a fix to the problem, which I reproduce for your pleasure here:

For those who have the issue where the image upload dialog uploads the image BUT the dialog hangs or stays open...here is what I did to fix it.

This is for the .net assembly 2_6_3. I based it on the help file http://dev.fckeditor.net/attachment/tic ... 2115.patch


Open the FredCK.FCKeditorV2.vs2005.csproj in Visual Studio 2005

Open the file FileBrowser > FileWorkerBase.cs

Go to line 119 and replace:

Response.Write( @"(function(){var d=document.domain;while (true){try{var A=<span style="font-weight: bold;">window.top.opener.document.domain</span>;break;}catch(e) {};d=d.replace(/.*?(?:\.|$)/,'');if (d.length==0) break;try{document.domain=d;}catch (e){break;}}})();" );


Response.Write(@"(function(){var d=document.domain;while (true){try{var A=<span style="font-weight: bold;">window.parent.OnUploadCompleted</span>;break;}catch(e) {};d=d.replace(/.*?(?:\.|$)/,'');if (d.length==0) break;try{document.domain=d;}catch (e){break;}}})();")

Compile the project and then reference the new dll file in your project.

This worked for me and I hope it helps you. The upload dialog now works on my dev XP and on the Windows Server 2003 website.
