Javascript – How to get the value of Codemirror textarea


I am using Codemirror's plugin for textarea but I am not able to retrieve the value of textarea.


var editor = CodeMirror.fromTextArea(document.getElementById("code"), {
    lineNumbers: true,
    matchBrackets: true,
    mode: "text/x-csrc"

function showCode()
    var text = editor.mirror.getCode();

It is showing the error:

editor.getCode() is not a function.

Best Solution

Try using getValue() instead of getCode().

Pass in an optional argument into getValue(separator) to specify the string to be used to separate lines (the default is \n).
