    Hi there,

    If I understand you correctly, you are finding a way to add CKEditor to your form. Please note that we have a CKEditor widget. You can easily add it to your form by dragging and dropping it to your form in the Form Builder.

    Also, here is a demo of a form containing CKEditor widget: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/33357473089968.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I've been able to add the widget - it's the more advanced uses that I was
    hoping to find examples of. It looks as though CKEdit's online
    documentation is going to very helpful as soon as I can understand how to
    properly reference it.
    Specifically, in my form https://www.jotform.com//?formID=60706390321953
    if I want to control the width of the control I would look to the page at
    http://docs.ckeditor.com/#!/api/CKEDITOR.dialog.definition to see how to
    set the minheight value.
    My problem is understanding how to get the ID of the widget or if it is
    even possible to do so given that it's wrapped in a iframe.

    Its not really clear what you were looking for. But from what I understand, I think you wanted to know the ID name of the CKEditor widget on your form https://www.jotformpro.com/form/60706390321953

    You can view the field ID details in the Properties / Field details of the widget


    Or you can also use your browser inspector tool to view the iframe wrapper ID details.



    Hope this help. Please let us know if there is more we can assist you with.
