I'm trying to use the rich text editor in a metafield property of an item in the news module (I've created a custom NewsView control), as well as do the same thing with a generic content module custom ContentView. Basically, we need to be able to enter rich text in the summary field (and in a similar metafield I defined in a new ContentView control based on Generic Content).
Previously, on a user control I've followed the advice in this KB article:
but when the editor launches, it doesn't seem to pay any attention to the editor tools file I've specified. In addition, it picks up a weird background color that makes it impossible to see the text. I like this approach, however, because the content author doesn't have to work with the rich text editor unless they specifically need to. But I'm not sure how to implement it for a metafield in a Content View control, nor am I sure how to get around the problem I ran into with it before.
I've also used this attribute to get a user control to behave like generic content:
But since I'm using a ContentView control, this is already being used internally for the main content. The question is, how do I add a "rich text editor" button to the Summary field, which is plain text?
