This option specifies how elements are converted into TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor instances. This option can be set to any of the values below.

Name Summary
textareas Converts all textarea elements to editors when the page loads.
specific_textareas Converts all textarea elements that match the editor_selector setting or don't match the editor_deselector setting.
exact Converts elements of the specified names, as listed in the elements option. These elements can be any kind -- for example, textareas or divs.
none Does not convert any elements. Later, your page can call the tinyMCE.execCommand("mceAddControl", true, "id"); function.

Note: The textarea_trigger option is deprecated. We strongly recommend you to use the editor_selector/editor_deselector options instead since they validate with W3C specifications.

Example of usage of the mode option:

  mode : "exact",
  elements : "elm1,elm2"
<textarea id="elm1" ...>
