lets say your mce textarea instance is:

<textarea id="editor1" ....></textarea>

then you get the content as follows:

var content =  tinyMCE.getContent('editor1');

if you mean you have multiple instances of mce editor on one page and you want to get content then try this approach:

var inst, contents = new Object();
for (inst in tinyMCE.editors) {
    if (tinyMCE.editors[inst].getContent)
        contents[inst] = tinyMCE.editors[inst].getContent();

the above code adds each editor content into an array

I solved it with code:

// Get the HTML contents of the currently active editor

// Get the raw contents of the currently active editor
tinyMCE.activeEditor.getContent({format : 'raw'});

// Get content of a specific editor:
tinyMCE.get('content id').getContent()

the activeEditor is current editor,but i use tinyMCE.get('editor1').getContent() can not get the value of my editor, hope it can help you

If you are more familiar with (and are using the jquery wrapper), you can also do this using this:


Where (editor1) is your selector.

In my case (v4.3.12), none of the above worked, so I did a workaround:

Html code:

<div id="wrapper">
    <textarea id="editable_container" name="editable_container"></textarea>

JQuery code:

var iframe = $('#editable_container_ifr');
var editorContent = $('#tinymce[data-id="editable_container"]', iframe.contents()).html();

Where editable_container is my tinyMCE editor's placeholder textarea, the editable area's iframe id is generated from adding a _ifr postfix to the placeholder's id, and the content-editable container (which contains the formatted text), has an id tinymce with a data-id attribute of the placeholder's id.
