Redactor Custom Configuration - image resize not working

Hi,

I worked with Hussein Al Hammad (when I say 'I worked': he did all the clever stuff). https://grabapipit.com/pipits/other/redactor-inline-perch-assets

We now have the ability to see Asset images inline in Redactor as opposed to shortcodes. I'm sure this will suit some clients.

However, the imageResizable feature that Redactor offers does not work when adding config.imageResizable = true; to the get function of the config.js file: perch/addons/plugins/editors/config.js.

But it does work if added to the load call back function (as seen in config.js below).

Unfortunately using this method there is an immediately obvious issue... the Redactor toolbar appears in front of the asset tray, and there my be other issues.

We can't figure out why config.imageResizable = true; doesn't work when added to the get function.

Config that works, but has toolbar display issues (and potentially other issues)

Perch.UserConfig.redactor = function () {
  var get = function (profile, config, field) {
    // remove perchassets plugin
    config.plugins = config.plugins.filter(function (item) {
      return item !== 'perchassets'
    })

    // add inlineperchassets plugin
    if (config.plugins.indexOf('inlineperchassets') === -1) config.plugins.push('inlineperchassets');

    // ADDING HERE DOESN'T WORK
    //config.imageResizable = true;

    return config;
  };

 var load = function (cb) {
  // load inlineperchassets plugin
  jQuery.getScript(Perch.path + '/addons/plugins/editors/redactor-plugins/pipit_inlineperchassets/inlineperchassets.js', function(){  
    // WORKS HERE BUT HAS ISSUES initialise editor
    let config = {
      imageResizable: true,
      imagePosition: true,
      plugins: ['inlineperchassets']
    };

    $R('.redactor.text', config);
  });
};

  return {
    'get': get,
    'load': load
  }

}();

It seems when Perch initiates the Redactor editor, adding imageResizable to the configurations and setting it to true has no effect

var get = function (profile, config, field) {
  // has no effect
  config.imageResizable = true;
  return config;
};

Other configurations that are used to customise the behaviour of the image module such as imagePosition works fine:

var get = function (profile, config, field) {
   // works as expected
  config.imagePosition= true;
  return config;
};

When when we initialise the Redactor editor ourselves (instead of passing the configurations to Perch and letting it handle things), imageResizable works as expected. Example:

var get = function (profile, config, field) {
  return config;
};

var load = function (cb) {
  jQuery.getScript(Perch.path + '/addons/plugins/editors/redactor-plugins/pipit_inlineperchassets/inlineperchassets.js', function(){
    $R('.redactor.text',  {
      imageResizable: true,
      plugins: ['inlineperchassets']
    });
  });
};

In this instance, the configurations are only needed to be set in load() where we initialise the editor. cb() is intentionally not executed here.

I couldn't figure out why this happens. The same issue happens when using the imagemanager plugin.

So:

  1. Is there something in Perch's default Redactor configurations or the way it initiates the editor that would prevent imageResizable from working?
  2. Can initiating the editor ourselves like in the example above cause issues (e.g. in repeaters, in blocks, etc)? I don't think it's reasonable for me to expect an answer for this one since it's not the supported way of customising an editor.

It was a css issue... Spent more time that I want to admit... but it works.

Perch.UserConfig.redactor = function ()
{
    let fixResizer = function() {
        $('head').append('<style type="text/css">#redactor-image-resizer { z-index: 1000; }</style>');
    }
    let load = function (cb) {
        jQuery.getScript(
            Perch.path + '/addons/plugins/editors/redactor-plugins/pipit_inlineperchassets/inlineperchassets.js',
            function() {
                fixResizer();
                cb();
        });
    }

    let get = function (profile, config, field) {
        config.plugins = config.plugins.filter(function (item) {
            return item !== 'perchassets'
        })

        if (config.plugins.indexOf('inlineperchassets') === -1)
            config.plugins.push('inlineperchassets');

        config.imageResizable = true;
        config.imagePosition = true;

        return config;
    };

    return {
        'get': get,
        'load': load
    }
}();

This solves it for me too. Great stuff, Anders!

Hi. If you have a moment, could you show how you would add other plugins to this config format? thank you!

Hi Monty,

You would add plugins to the config.plugins array in get():

config.plugins.push('someplugin');

And you would load any required plugin files in load().

You can refer to the custom configurations for default editors section in the docs. I also wrote a blog post on custom editors configurations.

Thanks, Hussein! Got it!
