    Get Plain Text in Javascript


    Is there a method that I can use in JavaScript to get the plain text in the Editor? Someththing similar to the getHTML?
     
    I want to use it to get the current length of the plain text in an OnChange event.

    Hi FLJoe,
     
    please try the example below
     
    <%@ Page Language="C#" %>

    <%@ Register Assembly="CuteEditor" Namespace="CuteEditor" TagPrefix="CE" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head id="Head1" runat="server">
        <title>GetPlainText</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <CE:Editor ID="editor1" runat="server">
            </CE:Editor>
            <input type="button" value="GetPlainText" onclick="GetPlainText()" />
            <div id="plainText" style="visibility: hidden">
            </div>
        </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    <script>
    function isIE() {
        if (window.navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf("msie") != -1) return true;
        else return false;
    }

    function GetPlainText() {

        var editor1 = document.getElementById('<%= editor1.ClientID %>');
        var plainText = document.getElementById("plainText");
        plainText.innerHTML = editor1.GetHTML();
        var text;
        if (isIE()) {
            text = plainText.innerText;
        }
        else {
            text = plainText.textContent;
        }
        alert(text);
        plainText.innerHTML = "";
    }
    </script>
     
    Regards,

    Hi Ken,
     
    Thank you, That works great .
     
    Instead of placing an extra div on the page itself , is there any downside to substituting with this inside the function?
     
    Use
    var plainText = document.createElement("plainText");
    in place of
    var plainText = document.getElementById("plainText");

    Thanks,

    Joe
