PCF TinyMCE text editor with local image picker

Hi guys,


I'm getting started with PowerApps Component Framework, and I'm trying to build a component for powerapps using PCF and the TinyMCE text editor, and I want to add the image picker from a local file functionality. Actually this is what i want to see in my component:




Using one of the components that are available in the PCF Gallery, I was able to enable the image functionality, by passing images only with URLs:


url image.png

This is the code that makes this happen in the PCF component:


tinymce code.png


And this is the code that TinyMCE provides to enable the local image picker functionality:



  selector: '#editor',
  plugins: 'image code',
  toolbar: 'undo redo | link image | code',
  /* enable title field in the Image dialog*/
  image_title: true,
  /* enable automatic uploads of images represented by blob or data URIs*/
  automatic_uploads: true,
    URL of our upload handler (for more details check:
    images_upload_url: 'postAcceptor.php',
    here we add custom filepicker only to Image dialog
  file_picker_types: 'image',
  /* and here's our custom image picker*/
  file_picker_callback: function (cb, value, meta) {
    var input = document.createElement('input');
    input.setAttribute('type', 'file');
    input.setAttribute('accept', 'image/*');

      Note: In modern browsers input[type="file"] is functional without
      even adding it to the DOM, but that might not be the case in some older
      or quirky browsers like IE, so you might want to add it to the DOM
      just in case, and visually hide it. And do not forget do remove it
      once you do not need it anymore.

    input.onchange = function () {
      var file = this.files[0];

      var reader = new FileReader();
      reader.onload = function () {
          Note: Now we need to register the blob in TinyMCEs image blob
          registry. In the next release this part hopefully won't be
          necessary, as we are looking to handle it internally.
        var id = 'blobid' + (new Date()).getTime();
        var blobCache =  tinymce.activeEditor.editorUpload.blobCache;
        var base64 = reader.result.split(',')[1];
        var blobInfo = blobCache.create(id, file, base64);

        /* call the callback and populate the Title field with the file name */
        cb(blobInfo.blobUri(), { title: });
  content_style: 'body { font-family:Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px }'



So basically, my question is, how can I manage to integrate the code for the local image picker functionality, into my PCF component?


Any ideas, suggestions or resources to understand this will be really appreciated.


Regards from Chile!
