@Curt
No problem with some improvements.

@cranioscopical
I think that making selection "sticky" would help with your issue. I will take a look on it.

One of the situations where I really wanted to use BBCeditor is, when I wanted to do a public test, a "Mini-Reviews by Members", but didn't began because I knew I couldn't finish it in just one browser session. Will you think about making it support minireview template, etcetera, or is that really too much to ask? My point of view is, that we probably never will use BBCeditor for writing up a small post in a hurry, but we (I and people like me) actually need BBCeditor if we want to write up a thorough review or similar.

fenix

getting an error with BBCeditor on load - unhandled exception...object reference not set to an instance of an object

it was working fine, then one day it wasn't.  I upgraded to the latest, but the issue persists

I can continue through the error and it appears to be working as advertised

running latest version (1.35b?) on W7x32 with .net 4 - error details attached

any idea's

@Target
I am sorry to hear that but this is the issue which keeps reappearing on different PCs.

In the past there was some issue with Visual Studio that it insisted on changing some methods order after any update in visual designer (thus there were calls for not yet existing resources).
Changing order back to was usually fixing this issue and last BBC Editor version had this "patch" implemented - I am not able to reproduce it neither on my work laptop nor on my home PC (both win7 x64).

I may try to re-compile latest sources again (with newest VS) to see if this "VS bug" was fixed but I need to find some spare time for that.

Thanks Fenix :Thmbsup:

It's no big deal really as it still works, but if it can be fixed then it's worth posting

It's a bit curious actually as it had been working fine, then one day it wasn't :huh:.  No change that I know of that should have impacted it, but that's one of the marvels of modern technology eh

FWIW I deleted the existing folder in case of corruption and ran with a copy of the latest but the error persists.

The board I post to has a black background.  How do I set BBCEditor to preview that way?
If it is CSS code, could you post what that code should be please.
Just a black background is all I need.  Thanks.

Just put at the top of style.css file:
body {
color:white;
background-color: black;
}

Hi, i recently came across this awesome bbcode editor, so first off I'd like to say a big thanks :Thmbsup:. This lil piece of soft helps me a lot to write my walls of texts while I'm on the go and also it's interface is cleaner and quicker to preview the output compared to browser use online.
Unfortunately or fortunately nothing is perfect in this world and b/c i do post on different forums certain tags that i use on one forum don't always work on other forums. As a result, i thought using the option to add buttons would allow me to work around that minor issue but so far i haven't been able to do so.
 
For e.g I'd like to add another spoiler button whereby the bbcode would be:
[spoiler2=random title]your text[/spoiler2] and the output would be,
random title
your text


Grateful if someone could point me to the proper HTML code to use and show me how to update things in the software.

PS:for records, i did try to use the custom tab of the software and place the bbcode tag as well as the HTML code but things didn't work out.
PPS: My knowledge of HTML and CSS are very very basic if not=0 xD

-Stephane1200 (July 07, 2014, 12:22 PM)

Please check:
1. go to: Tools -> Settings -> Custom buttons
2. click on plus
3. choose Regular Expression
4. as Expression put:

\[spoiler2=(.*?)](.*?)\[/spoiler2]

5. as Replacement put:

<div class="spoiler-box"><div class="spoiler-content"><input value="$1" class="spoiler_button" onclick="var tmp = this.parentElement.getElementsByTagName('div')[0]; if (tmp.style.display != ''){ tmp.style.display = '';}else { tmp.style.display = 'none';}" type="button"><div class="spoiler-content-in" style="display: none;">$2</div></div></div>

6. choose your own icon for Button image and Path
7. click OK

In Edit area you have text which is searched for specific regular expression defined in Expression and – if found – it is replaced with the content of Replacement field.

The basic syntax for any custom tag is:

\[CUSTOM](.*?)\[/CUSTOM]

or:

\[CUSTOM=(.*?)](.*?)\[/CUSTOM]

You reference any (.*?) with dollar sign and proper number like $1 in Replacements field.
For second paranthesis you will use $2 of course.

At the end you may write for Replacement something like:

<div>$1</div>

or:
<div><h2>$1</h2><p>$2</p></div>

This should put a block with title taken from first paranthesis and content – from second.

If you want some look and feel changes you will need to add proper classes to it and define them in style.css file.

For Replacement:

<div class="my-custom"><h2>$1</h2><p>$2</p></div>

you would need to put something in style.css, ex.:

.my-custom {
background-color:yellow;
color:red;
padding:8px;
margin:0;
border:1px solid red;
}
.my-custom h2 {
font-size:16px;
border-bottom:dotted red 1px;
padding:0;
margin:0;
}

.my-custom p {
font-style:italic;
margin-top:2px;
}


And the end result would be:

layout:

[IMG]http://<enter text here>[/img]

[B]<enter text here>[/B]

[IMG]http://napros.net/images/description.png[/img]

[URL='http://mechoredirect.com/?<enter text here>'][IMG]http://napros.net/images/demo.png[/img] [/URL]

[IMG]http://napros.net/images/download.png[/img]

<enter text here>

how do I do this so all I have to do is replace <enter text here>

so that when I am setting up my posts for the forum I can use the template to input the information easily.

BBCeditor is the best program, thanks for sharing, especially after a few customizations and enabling "refresh when text changes" -IMO it should be enabled by default that alone prevented me from using it for years until I noticed the setting.

I see members here using smileys a lot.
Still, no one mentioned that smileys are not supported in the preview window.
Is there a solution /plans to support it?

I'm not able to look at my installation at the moment but...

Try looking in Tools/Settings/Custom Buttons.

If I recall it aright, put a folder of smileys in your BBCEditor installation folder (might already be there) and point some custom buttons to the smileys therein.

Smileys certainly do show in the preview pane if you get it right.

Long time no see due to personal reasons but I have noticed that BBCeditor page went down with downloads too.
In case someone may still need it:
http://fenixproducti.../bbceditor_1135b.zip
http://fenixproducti...editor_1135b_src.zip

I will look for page HTML files and try to put it somewhere under fenixproductions.pl…

@mouser
I know but still I need to figure this out and – as I am rewriting my CV - it is easier just to handle whole "old stuff" on my own site.
I will try to get it on dcmembers IF time allows.

P.S. At least I have fixed links to Comparer on my site :)

@fenixproductions

I came upon BBCeditor this week, I liked it a lot- open-source, portable, tiny, nice and clean interface, customizable, so I immediately started using it. I really hope it is not abandoned for good. Because BBCeditor really impressed me I decided to review it at The Portable Freeware forum.

If you decide to work on BBCeditor in the future I would like to share several ideas for possible enhancements:

  • List toolbar button renamed to Bullet list;
  • New toolbar button- Numbered list;
  • New toolbar button- Insert date;
  • New toolbar button- Insert time;
  • New toolbar button- Insert date/time;
  • New command - Edit - Selection - sub-menus - UPPERCASE, lowercase, Sentence case, Title Case, iNVERT cASE;
  • Undo and Redo available from context menu;
  • Option to select text without trailing space;
  • Bookmarks- option to add BBC files as bookmarks;
  • Enhanced tray- right-click on tray icon- Open and Exit commands;

I've been using BBCeditor casually for years and I learned a couple of things from that review.
thanks!
