Problem Description: I am using CFTEXTAREA with richtext inside a CFWINDOW. When submitting the values of the CFTEXTAREA fields are not submitted as expected. Instead all fields become the value of the first field. The form works correct without richtext and correct when not inside a CFWINDOW.

Steps to Reproduce: Put CFTEXTAREA inside a CFWINDOW (or in a CFDIV). 

Actual Result: Submission of all cftextarea form fields with the value of the first form field

Expected Result: Submission of all cftextarea form fields with the correct values

Any Workarounds: No



Hi Jürgen, Can you please provide sample code to reproduce the issue ? And, let us know the browser version on which you are trying to execute the code ?

I open a cfwindow with: <button type="button" id="edit_indivptext1" class="ui-button ui-corner-all" onclick="'indivptext_editor'); ColdFusion.navigate('cfcs/repedit_form.cfc?method=show_indivptext&reporttype=1','indivptext_editor',updater,errorHandler,'POST','fapo_form');"> Within show_indivptext I have a cfloop generating several cftextarea: <cftextarea name="ipt_txt_x_#labnr#" id="ipt_txt_x_#labnr#" width="949" height="150" richtext="true" toolbar="Basic" basepath="/#Application.MainPath#/scripts/ckeditor/" >#text#</cftextarea> Submission of the form is made with: <button type="submit" name="submit_indivptext" id="submit_indivptext" class="ui-button ui-corner-all edit_submit" onclick="ColdFusion.navigate('cfcs/repedit_form.cfc?method=update_indivptext','indivptext_editor',updater,errorHandler,'POST','indivptext_form');"> As a frist workaround I changed the submit to: <button type="submit" name="submit_indivptext" id="submit_indivptext" class="ui-button ui-corner-all edit_submit" onclick="javascript:CKUpdate(); ColdFusion.navigate('cfcs/repedit_form.cfc?method=update_indivptext','indivptext_editor',updater,errorHandler,'POST','indivptext_form');"> And the function CKUpdate is the following: function CKUpdate(){ for(var name in CKEDITOR.instances){ CKEDITOR.instances[name].destroy();} for(var name in CKEDITOR.instances){ CKEDITOR.instances[name].updateElement();} } With this workaround it seems to work now.
