( html, fixForBody )
Transforms HTML into data to be output by the editor, in the format expected by the data processor. ...

Transforms HTML into data to be output by the editor, in the format expected by the data processor.

While the editor is able to handle non-HTML data (like BBCode), it can only handle HTML data at runtime. The role of the data processor is to transform the HTML data containined by the editor into a specific data format through this function.

// Tranforming into BBCode data, with a custom BBCode data processor available.
var html = '<p>This is <b>an example</b>.</p>';
var data = editor.dataProcessor.toDataFormat( html ); // 'This is [b]an example[/b].'

Parameters

  • html : String

    The HTML to be transformed.

  • fixForBody : String

    The tag name to be used if the output data is coming from the <body> element and may be eventually fixed for it. This is generally not used by non-HTML data processors.

var data = 'This is [b]an example[/b].';
