I was asked:
Just one question, the insert image option uploads the file to the server? I made a quick test and couldn't see it but I don't know if there is anything to adjust in the class or anything.


Answer:
No, uploading not supported. You may only include global link ant this time.

Hi Kaurov, I was the one that asked you this question. I found no way of automatic uploading the image to the server, the MSDN info on execCommand didn't provide any clue on this.

I think maybe something like this could be done: another icon named "Upload image" open a pop with a form that submits the image, giving it a descriptive name. It would be then stored in the server, and the "Insert image" icon would open another pop with a list of uploaded images, the user would select one and it would be inserted in the content.

The only drawback I see is that another two files would be needed (or one with different parameters) and the simplicity of use of the class would suffer from this (now it's great, just a couple of lines and it's working). But for some users the added functionality would be enough reason to work a bit more.

What do you think about this?

Regards, and great work!

Good idea.
I see this in such way:
adding six parameters ..., $incom_path='', $view_path='', $pw='', $ph='', $bw='', $bh='')
where
$incom_path='' path to look for images and where to upload new
$view_path='' this same path but from output page (if wesarea used in folder)
$pw='' - prewiew image width,
$ph='' - prewiew image height,
$bw='' - big (natural) image width (maximum),
$bh='' - big image height (maximum).

When you click "insert image" icon, script have to show window (like color or table windows) with three blocks: global link, upload new, list of existing images in $incom_path.

You may insert global image, or to upload new (tag must be inserted automatically for uploaded image) or to choose existing image.

To upload image: XUpload class
To resize image: ImageResizeClass
Both files already at phpclasses


Do you want to realise this idea youself or I have to make changes?
If I'll do this, It take time becouse I want to port JS for Mozilla.

It's a nice approach! Much easier for the user than what I had thought. I'll try to implement it myself, although I'm not sure how long will it take since I'm quite busy at the moment. Great news the port to Mozilla!
