Integration of CK-Editor to UI

Here I am going to explain how to integrate CK-Editor to UI , set the data to editor and how to remove some controls from CK-Editor. Minimum files required to integrate CK-Editor are CK-Editor.js, config.js, lang, plugins ( you can remove or add the plugin for your choice .For example smiley, special character, table etc.), skins, style.js .

You can download CK-Editor from here .


//Initialize the Editor

//Replace the <textarea id="editor1"> with an CKEditor instance.  
function initEditor()
CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor1', {

pluginsLoaded: function( evt ) 
 var doc = CKEDITOR.document, ed = evt.editor;
 if ( !ed.getCommand( 'bold' ) )
  doc.getById( 'exec-bold' ).hide();
 if ( !ed.getCommand( 'link' ) )
  doc.getById( 'exec-link' ).hide();


<textarea cols="100"  id="editor1" name="editor1" rows="50">


How to set data to CK-Editor

How to get data from CK-Editor

For taking data from editor you can try this

 $ = CKEDITOR.instances.editor1.getData();

Remove some controls from CK-Editor

For removing some controls , open config.js

CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function( config ) {

// Define changes to default configuration here. For example:

// config.language = 'fr';

// config.uiColor = '#AADC6E';

 config.height = '96%';

 config.marginTop = '10px';

 config.removePlugins = 'save,a11yhelp,forms,etc';

 config.removeButtons = 'Styles,Anchor,Templates' ;

 config.resize_enabled = false;
