It's my first time working on an open source project. I want to join. I'm good with C/C++. I'm applying to join too.

Hi! What sort of things would you like to work on? WYSIWYG, raw HTML editing, or something else?
Apr 8, 2013 at 5:19 PM
WYSIWYG sounds most interesting

Apr 8, 2013 at 5:24 PM
Alright, I can get you started on that. I've been considering using ContentEditable and then injecting JS, then making a thin abstraction over it so it can be accessed from the UI. It might be best to make an isolated test at first to try it, then integrate when the GUI's finished.

Thanks. Some questions which will show I'm new to this. I can see some of the source code on the website but what is most efficient way to get it into a compiler?

Apr 8, 2013 at 8:14 PM
The source code in the repo is currently out of date, and frankly, it's all going to be rewritten.

Sorry I'm new to this. I think I need more specific guidance or I should be taken off the project or put somewhere I can contribute. I looked up Contenteditable and it appears an html command or indicator used for wysiwyg. Should I learn more about htrml and js before proceeding?

I think a basic HTML knowledge should suffice, just learn the basic JS syntax etc and some of the HTML tags, then is a good contenteditable resource.

OK sorry for delay. I'll ask you if I have questions. Thanks

OK I think I get some of JS and that contenteditable is a tag. Sorry, what do I do now?

Apr 13, 2013 at 4:32 PM
First, I'd suggest starting with the .NET web browser control. You'll need to set contenteditable to on, then be able to get the created html too. Put it in an isolated test for now.

See, about answer 3 for implementation help.

I have this (again please work with me while I'm new to this):

From online:
System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser b = new System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser();

From your webpage (which element?)
element.contentEditable = true

To add the controls see
You need to make the whole document contenteditable.

Is this below the .NET webbrowser control? The tutorial example doesn't have a webbrowser and does everything in formload.

[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
public class WebBrowser : WebBrowserBase

Have you tried using the designer and just adding the browser that way?
Apr 15, 2013 at 8:21 PM
I'm not sure how to use the designer to create the browser. Can you elaborate?

Apr 15, 2013 at 8:35 PM
Look at this: but instead use the WebBrowser control.
