TinyMCE Control

The TinyMCE Control displays a rich text editor on a User Form for textual input that supports image upload.

This allows detailed notes or comments, along with accompanying links and images, to be written from a Specification.

This control has many uses, including:

Return Result

The result of any data entered in the Control is written to the Text Property.

This can be referenced in a rule using <ControlName>Return.

The result is formatted HTML.

For example text written and formatted in the TinyMCE control could return the following HTML:

<p>When delivering &lt;item&gt; please contact <strong>reception</strong>.</p>

Any characters that can be misinterpreted in HTML are automatically escaped.

From the above example &lt;item&gt; is rendered as <item> in the control and in any browser.
