Bootstrap HTML5 WYSIWYG Rich Text Editor

How to Get data in PHP?

Though php can't read/ get data from DIV directly, we need to write some JavaScript code to fetch data for editor DIV and put it in a Text Area, So we can get the data easily with $_POST or $_REQUEST on submitting the form. Create a hidden text area in the form and on form submit call the following function to load data from div to text area.


<textarea rows="2" name="desc" cols="20" style="display:none; "></textarea>


<form method="POST" name="form1" action="#" onsubmit="loadVal();">
<textarea rows="2" name="desc" cols="20" style="display:none; "></textarea>

JavaScript code:

function loadVal(){
desc = $("#editor").html();
document.form1.desc.value = = desc;
