    CustomAddon dropdown possible?

    I've just started using the editor.
     
    Does anyone know if it is possible to create a dropdown that can POST back its selection programmably using CustomAddons with PHP?
    $editor->CustomAddons = ??
     
    I've looked at the button demo and how the dropdowns are done in the config files but I'm not sure where to start.
     
    I did try something like...
    $editor->CustomAddons = '<select name="menu" id="menu"><option>item1</option><option>item2</option></select>';
    ... and although this did put a menu on the toolbar it has a strange behavior.
     
    In Firefox 3.0.8 when you try to select an item in the menu it defaults back to the first item. If you open the menu, close it again then use the arrow keys you can get to the different items :S

    Re: CustomAddon dropdown possible?

    UPDATE:
     
    I also tried mirroring what gets spat out in the source code for the editors built in css style dropdown...

     $editor->CustomAddons =
        "<br clear='both'/>
        <table class='CuteEditorGroupMenu' cellSpacing='0' cellPadding='0' border='0'>
        <tr><td class='CuteEditorGroupMenuCell'><nobr>
         <span
            class='CuteEditorDropDown'
            id='CE_Editor1_IDcssclass'
            Command='CssClass'
            onchange=\"CuteEditor_DropDownCommand(this,'CssClass')\"
            RichHideFirstItem='true'
            _IsRichDropDown='True'
            style='display:inline-block;width:70px;height:20px;'
        >
            <span val=''
                selected='True'
                html='Css Class'
                txt='Css Class'>
            </span>
        </span>"
        .
        "</nobr></td></tr></table>";
     
    ... which almost works but screws up the toolbar layout. If I take out the _IsRichDropDown='True' it behaves but is no longer a dropdown menu (It's just a box where the dropdown goes)
     
    Any ideas anyone?

    Re: CustomAddon dropdown possible?

    Sort of. I want a dropdown menu like the toolbar choice but on the actual editor, like the CSS Class, Inline Style, Normal etc... dropdowns.
     
    I want to create something like the CSS Class menu but with PHP/CustomAddon ... is that possible?

    gman,
     
    Yes, you can just create a dropdown menu and include it into cute editor toolbar. In the OnChange event of the dropdown menu, change window.location.href to meet your requirements.
