Using the JavaScript API, a document can be manipulated in the HTML5-based rich text editor. Version X15 already contains a solid number of classes and methods to fulfil common tasks. We are working on a huge update for this interface for version X16 where you will see many new classes and methods available. The ultimate goal is to provide a complete API comparable to the API that is useable with TXTextControl.ServerTextControl .

We received many requests last week regarding text fields and how to remove them programmatically - specifically using the Backspace and Delete keys. By default, fields are not editable and deletable. The following code snippet shows how to remove the field at the current input position when the user is pressing the Backspace or Delete key. This code also works, if these keys are pressed at the beginning or the end of a field in order to remove it.


Happy coding!
