Description Author  

This class is a plug-in for the Forms Generation and Validation class that turns a textarea input in a HTML editor.

Xinha is a fork of the HtmlArea JavaScript library. HtmlArea can generate HTML editors with support for many rich editing features like tables and spell-checking.

This plug-in makes the Xinha enhanced input be treated like a normal textarea input, so applications can retrieve and validate the input value like with any other input managed by the forms class.

This is a plugin form Manuel Lamos' Forms Generation and Validation Class\
It implements a textarea with a toolbar that allows the user to treat the field as a word processor (so styles, fonts, tables, spellcheck...)\
It is based on a javascript opensource proget called xinha.\
How to get it working:\
a) First you need the master forms.php class, grab it from\
b) Second you need the xinha javascript code.\
Go to \
and download the latest code, unzip it and the place the whole folder at the root level of your site\
		"LANG"=>"en",					// valid are "en","it","de" default "it"\
		"SPELLCHECK"=>true,			// display SPELLCHECK default false\
		"TABLES"=>true,				// display Table Operations default false\
		"PATH"=>"/path/to/the/editor",	// default "xinha" that is the site relative path to the folder you created in step b)\
Any attribute that makes sense in a textarea should work. For the legal parameters in a textarea take a look at Manuel' Lamos' Forms Generation and Validation class documentation.\
I've only assembled the plugin. All the credits for the functionality goes to the guys at that are working so hard on the project.\
If you fix it or implement it, I'd love to hear from you.\
Good luck\
