The editors form field type provides a drop down list of the available and enabled WYSIWYG editors. If the field has a saved value this is selected when the page is first loaded. If not, the default value (if any) is selected.


The first option on the list is always '- Select Editor -' (which is a translatable string) and is given the value 0.

  • type (mandatory) must be editors.
  • name (mandatory) is the unique name of the parameter.
  • label (mandatory) (translatable) is the descriptive title of the field.
  • default (optional) is the default editor name. This is the name listed in the File column in the Plugin Manager screen.
  • description (optional) (translatable) is text that will be shown as a tooltip when the user moves the mouse over the drop-down box.

Example XML parameter definition:

<field name="myeditor" type="editors" default="none" label="Select an editor" />
