  • @paul_crookell – sort of! What seemed to work for me was to set the value using the ACF JS field API, and then use jQuery to “click” the code view tab. And then the text I was inserting would appear.
    That was good enough for this project so I didn’t dig further – whenever I tried programmatically selecting the wysiwyg view, the value would go blank again.
    My solution, in essence:
    var description = “This text should appear in the TinyMCE textarea!”;
    jQuery(“div.acf-field-5d5231b7e8738 button.switch-html”).click();
    Would love to know a more elegant way!

    Ignore all that, I sorted it – updating in one second, hold tight.
