As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, our team is working on migrating out application from zk5 to zk7.0.3

I have enocuntered an issue with ckeditor.

In zk5, i was able to just use the below line in the zul page to show up ckeditor in the ui,

<ckeditor id="messageTextArea" width = "90%"></ckeditor>

While upgrading to zk7.0.3, corresponding controller class is giving me error so i had to add maven depdendancy to the pom as below, <dependency> <groupid>org.zkoss.zkforge</groupid> <artifactid>ckez</artifactid>
<version></version> </dependency>

But this one is not showing the ckeditor at all on the ui. Notices some java script errors too on chrome saying, Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < Resource intereted as stylesheet but trannsferred with mime type text/html: "url of our app" Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'options' of undefined

Please advise.

Hi Darksu, Some how I am not able to post the answer. So adding my reply to your question in the request itself. Hope that is ok.

Yes, I have exactly followed what they said in the article. But no luck. Do I need to customize the addon xml as per my application or copy the xml should be good?

What version of CkEditor maven dependency should I add?

Thanks, Haritha.

Hello hmannam,

At the following url it explains how to configure ckeditor:


Did you create an addon xml and add the server annotation? and then add it to the WEB-INF/zk.xml?

Best Regards,

We are having a similar issue with ZK 7.6.

We added the dependency in the pom.xml Added the value in lang-addon.xml And when we add the tag in the zul, it just shows a text area and a JS error ...

If one of you folks who used it before could check it would be great
