GXT 3.0.0b - HtmlEditor.setEnable(false) does not work
If HtmlEditor is disabled by calling setEnable(false), the widget gets the disabled appearance.
But it is till possible to edit the text and to use the editor tool.
I would expect, that it is not possible to edit the text and all editor tools are disabled.
Thanks for the report. This is certainly not the desired behaviour. I've filed a ticket against the team and will update this thread once we have a fix.

This still issue still exists in some versions of FF. HtmlEditor uses the GWT RichTextArea internally which has a known bug. See http://code.google.com/p/google-web-...detail?id=1488. Please star the GWT issue to get it bumped up to be fixed.
