Replacing the default editor

The Commerce Manager Framework meta-field data types include a long HTML meta-field. By default, this field is editable using a simple textbox editor in the Catalog Management subsystem (legacy) section of Commerce Manager. However, you can enable a WYSIWYG editor control to be used instead.

Enabling the WYSIWYG editor control

Make the following changes in the Commerce Manager web.config file:

  • Set the value attribute of the HtmlEditorControl to the path of the CuteEditor Editor Control (eg. ...value="~/Apps/Core/Controls/Editors/CuteEditor/EditorControl.ascx").
  • Uncomment the CuteEditorDefaultFilesPath element.
