tinymce.util.Tools

This class contains various utlity functions. These are also exposed directly on the tinymce namespace.

Summary

Methods

Name Summary Defined by

each()

Performs an iteration of all items in a collection such as an object or array. This method will execure the callback function for each item in the collection, if the callback returns false the iteration will terminate. The callback has the following format: cb(value, key_or_index).

Tools

explode()

Splits a string but removes the whitespace before and after each value.

Tools

grep()

Filters out items from the input array by calling the specified function for each item. If the function returns false the item will be excluded if it returns true it will be included.

Tools

hasOwnProperty()

JavaScript does not protect hasOwnProperty method, so it is possible to overwrite it. This is an object independent version. Checks if the input object obj has the property prop.

Tools

inArray()

Returns an index of the item or -1 if item is not present in the array.

Tools

is()

Checks if a object is of a specific type for example an array.

Tools

isArray()

Returns true/false if the object is an array or not.

Tools

makeMap()

Makes a name/object map out of an array with names.

Tools

map()

Creates a new array by the return value of each iteration function call. This enables you to convert one array list into another.

Tools

resolve()

Resolves a string and returns the object from a specific structure.

Tools

toArray()

Converts the specified object into a real JavaScript array.

Tools

trim()

Removes whitespace from the beginning and end of a string.

Tools

walk()

Executed the specified function for each item in a object tree.

Methods

each()

each(o: Object, cb: Function, s: Object)

Performs an iteration of all items in a collection such as an object or array. This method will execure the callback function for each item in the collection, if the callback returns false the iteration will terminate. The callback has the following format: cb(value, key_or_index).

Examples

// Iterate an array
tinymce.each([ 1,2,3 ], (v, i) => {
  console.debug("Value: " + v + ", Index: " + i);
});

// Iterate an object
tinymce.each({ a: 1, b: 2, c: 3 }, (v, k) => {
  console.debug("Value: " + v + ", Key: " + k);
});

Parameters

  • o (Object) - Collection to iterate.

  • cb (Function) - Callback function to execute for each item.

  • s (Object) - Optional scope to execute the callback in.


explode()

explode(s: String, d: String)

Splits a string but removes the whitespace before and after each value.

Examples

// Split a string into an array with a,b,c
const arr = tinymce.explode('a, b,   c');

Parameters

  • s (String) - String to split.

  • d (String) - Delimiter to split by.


grep()

grep(a: Array, f: Function): Array

Filters out items from the input array by calling the specified function for each item. If the function returns false the item will be excluded if it returns true it will be included.

Examples

// Filter out some items, this will return an array with 4 and 5
const items = tinymce.grep([ 1,2,3,4,5 ], (v) => v > 3);

Parameters

  • a (Array) - Array of items to loop though.

  • f (Function) - Function to call for each item. Include/exclude depends on it’s return value.

Return value

  • Array - New array with values imported and filtered based in input.


hasOwnProperty()

hasOwnProperty(obj: Object, prop: String): Boolean

JavaScript does not protect hasOwnProperty method, so it is possible to overwrite it. This is an object independent version. Checks if the input object obj has the property prop.

Parameters

  • obj (Object) - Object to check if the property exists.

  • prop (String) - Name of a property on the object.

Return value

  • Boolean - true if the object has the specified property.


inArray()

inArray(item: any, arr: Array): Number

Returns an index of the item or -1 if item is not present in the array.

Parameters

  • item (any) - Item to search for.

  • arr (Array) - Array to search in.

Return value

  • Number - index of the item or -1 if item was not found.


is()

is(obj: Object, type: String): Boolean

Checks if a object is of a specific type for example an array.

Parameters

  • obj (Object) - Object to check type of.

  • type (String) - Optional type to check for.

Return value

  • Boolean - true/false if the object is of the specified type.


isArray()

isArray(obj: Object): Boolean

Returns true/false if the object is an array or not.

Parameters

  • obj (Object) - Object to check.

Return value

  • Boolean - true/false state if the object is an array or not.


makeMap()

makeMap(items: Array | String, delim: String, map: Object): Object

Makes a name/object map out of an array with names.

Parameters

  • items (Array | String) - Items to make map out of.

  • delim (String) - Optional delimiter to split string by.

  • map (Object) - Optional map to add items to.

Return value

  • Object - Name/value map of items.


map()

map(array: Array, callback: Function): Array

Creates a new array by the return value of each iteration function call. This enables you to convert one array list into another.

Parameters

  • array (Array) - Array of items to iterate.

  • callback (Function) - Function to call for each item. It’s return value will be the new value.

Return value

  • Array - Array with new values based on function return values.


resolve()

resolve(n: String, o: Object): Object

Resolves a string and returns the object from a specific structure.

Examples

// Resolve a path into an object reference
const obj = tinymce.resolve('a.b.c.d');

Parameters

  • n (String) - Path to resolve for example a.b.c.d.

  • o (Object) - Optional object to search though, defaults to window.

Return value

  • Object - Last object in path or null if it couldn’t be resolved.


toArray()

toArray(obj: Object): Array

Converts the specified object into a real JavaScript array.

Parameters

  • obj (Object) - Object to convert into array.

Return value

  • Array - Array object based in input.


trim()

trim(s: String): String

Removes whitespace from the beginning and end of a string.

Parameters

  • s (String) - String to remove whitespace from.

Return value

  • String - New string with removed whitespace.


walk()

walk(o: Object, f: Function, n: String, s: String)

Executed the specified function for each item in a object tree.

Parameters

  • o (Object) - Object tree to walk though.

  • f (Function) - Function to call for each item.

  • n (String) - Optional name of collection inside the objects to walk for example childNodes.

  • s (String) - Optional scope to execute the function in.
