      You should look at this from another angle.

      Before you have them click the upload button, add the placeholder element to the editor before the upload.

      Then you have a reference to the element that was inserted, after the upload is done all you have to do is mod the element that was created before the upload..

      Similar to the way the Insert Image button works..

      Does that make sense?

      Subject: [ydn-javascript] YUI editor: How do I stop the cursor position in editor being lost (IE7)?

      I'm using the editor as part of a small CMS I'm putting together. I've
      added a file input element to the page. When a user selects a file, it
      is uploaded to our server via AJAX, and a link to the file is returned
      which gets inserted into the editor (using the execCommand
      insertHTML). This works fine, except that in IE7, when the user clicks
      the file input's 'browse' button, the cursor position in the text
      editor is lost and the link just gets added to the beginning of the
      text, rather than at the last place in the editor that the user clicked.

      Looking through the editor's .js file, I see that there are private
      functions such as '_getselection' and '_getrange' that have obviously
      have had a lot of time spent on them to make them cross-browser
      compatible. I'm thinking of using one of these as part of a
      'getCursorPosition' function, which I can use to record the cursor
      position before it gets lost.

      Does this sound do-able, and am I going about this the right way? Can
      you give me any pointers to get started, or is there already a
      function which does something similar that I've not noticed?

      Thanks for your help!
      Rob
