### Stripped down Atto editor

Stripped down Atto editor

Hi,

I am creating a form in a local plugin, in which I would like to only allow teachers to use bullet point and numbered lists on the Atto editor. I have looked at the Forms API but I cannot find a way to disable Atto plugins for this one form only. I have attached a mockup of what I am after. The only thing I have been able to do is to disable the file uploads.

Am I looking at the wrong place? Has anyone done this before, or can think of examples within the Moodle codebase (or third-party plugins) I could look at? Is it simply impossible without getting a major headache?

Cheers,

Fred

Re: Stripped down Atto editor

Thanks a lot for the link, Paul. I am struggling to get things going, as there is no documentation.

Here is what I have so far, which does not work (i.e. all of the Atto icons are displayed).

$editoroptions = array( 'maxfiles' => 0, 'maxbytes' => 0, 'trusttext' => false, 'noclean' => false, 'context' =>$context,    'subdirs' => 0,    'atto:toolbar'  => 'style1 = bold, italic');

Has anyone implemented this successfully? Am I placing the atto options in the wrong place?

Cheers,

Fred

Hi,

Might be a late reply, but if you're trying to use this inside a regular moodleform instance somewhere, it won't work because of a bug in Moodle - https://tracker.moodle.org/projects/MDL/issues/MDL-59904

As I said in the ticket, I created a new class in my plugin called MoodleQuickForm_simpleeditor, saved as mod/myplugin/simpleeditor.php (not the real path, but one for example uses):

class MoodleQuickForm_simpleeditor extends MoodleQuickForm_editor {
public function __construct($elementName=null,$elementLabel=null, $attributes=null,$options=null) {
$this->_options['atto:toolbar'] = ''; parent::__construct($elementName, $elementLabel,$attributes, $options); } }  Then in my form definition I have:  public function definition() { global$CFG;

// Load the files we're going to need.
require_once("$CFG->libdir/form/editor.php"); require_once("$CFG->dirroot/mod/myplugin/simpleeditor.php");

$mform =$this->_form;
require_once("$CFG->libdir/form/editor.php"); \MoodleQuickForm::registerElementType('simpleeditor', "$CFG->libdir/form/editor.php", 'MoodleQuickForm_simpleeditor');

$editoroptions = array( 'subdirs' => 0, 'maxbytes' => 0, 'maxfiles' => 0, 'changeformat' => 0, 'context' => null, 'noclean' => 0, 'trusttext' => 0, 'enable_filemanagement' => false, 'atto:toolbar' => 'style1 = bold, italic', );$mform->addElement('simpleeditor', 'mytextfield', null, null, $editoroptions);$mform->setType('mytextfield', PARAM_RAW);
}


(My editor doesn't have a text label on it, but that's because I wanted it to be that way. You'd put the text label in place of the first null there.)

Hope this helps,

Peter

Apologies, I copied the wrong link, it should be https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-59981 instead (and I am unable to edit the previous post)
