@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!”;
Would love to know a more elegant way!
Ignore all that, I sorted it – updating in one second, hold tight.
OK, here’s a better version. You have to find your ACF field, find the textarea within the editor, get that ID, then setContent using TinyMCE JS API:
var description = "Some text!";
var f = acf.getField("field_5d5231b7e8738");
var tinyID = f.$el.find("textarea").attr("id");
var tinyInstance = tinyMCE.editors[tinyID];
Worked well for me, let me know how it goes.
