Jquery events on CKeditor


Hello in a form with a textarea with id "ckeditor_input"

$("#ckeditor_input").ckeditor(); $("#ckeditor_input").html(); // can get the value ("#ckeditor_input").click/blur/keydown/keypressed( function(){ alert("OK"); } ); //doesn't work!

the problem is ckeditor! If I don't start an instance of ckeditor on the textarea all events work fine! What is the right way to get events on a ckeditor instance?

Thank you


CKEditor uses an iframe... very annoying for jQuery events. You could try:

$($('#parent-element>iframe').get(0).contentWindow.document).live('click',function() { ... });

I haven't tested it so not entirely sure whether it'll work. But I'm sure that's the starting point for the solution. Let me know how it goes, and if it doesn't work I'll try and work out what the problem is.

<strong>Edit::</strong> (based on the comment)

$(CKEDITOR.instances.desc_product).click(function() { ... });

I think that should do it. But only run it after CKEditor has loaded properly.
