CKEDITOR.ui.dialog.uiElement
view source
: Object
The event processor list used by getInputElement at UI element instantiation. ...

The event processor list used by getInputElement at UI element instantiation. The default list defines three on* events:

  1. onLoad - Called when the element's parent dialog opens for the first time.
  2. onShow - Called whenever the element's parent dialog opens.
  3. onHide - Called whenever the element's parent dialog closes.

    // This connects the 'click' event in CKEDITOR.ui.dialog.button to onClick // handlers in the UI element's definitions. CKEDITOR.ui.dialog.button.eventProcessors = CKEDITOR.tools.extend( {}, CKEDITOR.ui.dialog.uiElement.prototype.eventProcessors, { onClick : function( dialog, func ) { this.on( 'click', func ); } }, true );

( dialog, key )
The default handler for a UI element's access key down event, which tries to put focus to the UI element. ...

( definition ) : CKEDITOR.ui.dialog.uiElementchainable
Registers the on* event handlers defined in the element definition. ...

Registers the on* event handlers defined in the element definition.

The default behavior of this function is:

  1. If the on* event is defined in the class's eventProcesors list, then the registration is delegated to the corresponding function in the eventProcessors list.
  2. If the on* event is not defined in the eventProcessors list, then register the event handler under the corresponding DOM event of the UI element's input DOM element (as defined by the return value of getInputElement).

This function is only called at UI element instantiation, but can be overridded in child classes if they require more flexibility.

Parameters

Returns

CKEDITOR.ui.dialog.uiElement
