  • element (DOMElement) - Optional element to scope it to.

setEditorInterval

setEditorInterval(callback:function, time:Number):Number

Sets an interval timer it's similar to setInterval except that it checks if the editor instance is still alive when the callback gets executed.

Parameters
  • callback (function) - Callback to execute when interval time runs out.
  • time (Number) - Optional time to wait before the callback is executed, defaults to 0.
Return value
  • Number - Timeout id number.

setEditorTimeout

setEditorTimeout(editor:tinymce.Editor, callback:function, time:Number):Number

Sets an editor timeout it's similar to setTimeout except that it checks if the editor instance is still alive when the callback gets executed.

Parameters
  • editor (tinymce.Editor) - Editor instance to check the removed state on.
  • callback (function) - Callback to execute when timer runs out.
  • time (Number) - Optional time to wait before the callback is executed, defaults to 0.
Return value
  • Number - Timeout id number.

setInterval

setInterval(callback:function, time:Number):Number

Sets an interval timer in ms and executes the specified callback at every interval of that time.

Parameters
  • callback (function) - Callback to execute when interval time runs out.
  • time (Number) - Optional time to wait before the callback is executed, defaults to 0.
Return value
  • Number - Timeout id number.

setTimeout

setTimeout(callback:function, time:Number):Number

Sets a timer in ms and executes the specified callback when the timer runs out.
