TinyMCE: Check if TinyMCE is available

Question by Guest | Last update on 2021-04-06 | Created on 2014-05-06

I would like to show the TinyMCE HTML Editor only to a special group of the users of my website. The normal user is not allowed to use the editor.

So, I include the TinyMCE files dynamically only if necessary.

Because I am using the same JavaScript code for all users, the line with tinymce.init() is also written in the code in cases, TinyMCE is not available at all. So, in this case it, the function is unknown leading to errors when executing the code.

So, what I need is a function to check whether TinyMCE is available on not. Only if it is available, I would run the initialization with tinymce.init(). Is there any possibility to check that?

You can just check whether typeof(tinyMCE) is defined:

if (typeof(tinyMCE) != "undefined") {
    selector: "textarea"

Only if typeof(tinyMCE) is not undefined, the tinymce.init() will be executed.
