I know how you feel. I have it sitting next to me right now.
I think you need to focus on how the new page loads. It sounds like you have some content in addition to an iframe on the page. Are you controlling the size of the iframe? If not, maybe you need to. Based on your description, it doesn't sound like your problem has anything to do with opening the window.
Yes. This could be from copying and pasting. A simple way to remove those weird characters is to paste the text into a text editor like Notepad. Then, copy and paste again from Notepad to your html. At least then, you will know what you're pasting.

Hi,
In our project we are working on mozilla browser. Here I am facing problem when we are showing a pop up, it is not getting the css properties from the main window. If I use style instead of class in td it is working.
if any one having idea on adding css properties to the pop up window, plese share with us.



Your pop up window needs some way to know about the rules you defined. If you defined your css rules in a <style> tag on the parent page, then you should consider pulling that out and placing it in a css file. Then, use a link tag in the head to point to the css file. You can add this link to as many pages as you like, including the popup.
evguenia,

On the off-chance that you aren't aware, there are several javascript toolkits out there that you can use. One is Dojo. Dojo has a couple of built-in widgets that might get you started in the right direction:

I find that if nothing else, Dojo can simplify the javascript you write with some helper classes.

Hope that helps.

Does anyone know when Michael Bowers is scheduled to participate in this discussion?
Hi Michael,

I've read the book description and looked at the excerpts but I'm curious as to how you expect the book to be used by people like me.

Most of my time with html/css is spent adding features to existing sites. However, once or twice a year I need to build a new site from scratch. While I'm fairly comfortable with css, the thought of building a layout from scratch is a bit daunting. So... I usually find some css template or a layout that resembles what I want to do and I strip it down and reuse it.

That usually works for me, but when things go wrong it gets frustrating. Will your book help me create layouts from scratch? Also, since I (obviously) need to develop for multiple browsers/platforms, does your book teach in a way that will help minimize the amount of time tweaking and hacking for different browsers?

Thanks,

Michael

I keep finding documentation indicating that a servlet's init method should be called before handling any requests. But I can't find anything that states exactly when the init is called. The behavior of my servlet indicates that it is only initialized after it receives its first request. It definitely finishes the init() before handling that first request, but it got me wondering how I could make sure the init() method is called before I need to handle that first request.

I have very little experience with servlets, so I may be missing something fundamental. I just wonder how one would handle a servlet that has a resource-intensive initialization process so that it doesn't create a performance hit for the first user.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Hi,

I would like to use Eclipse with the Subversion plug-in Subclipse on a machine that is on an internal network (ie. no internet connection). Does anybody know a way for me to download the subclipse plugin so that I can put it on a disc and install on my non-internet-connected machine?

Thanks in advance,

Mike
Hi Kris,

I'm new to AJAX but am using the Dojo toolkit to do what I need right now. It's really very simple to use a toolkit and write event handlers and callback functions in this way. Of course, using the toolkit enables me to use this technology without fully understanding it.

I see all of these books out now about AJAX, advanced concepts, patterns etc... and I figure I must be missing some very big concepts because so far I've been able to use the toolkit for everything I need. In other words, what will I be able to do after reading your book that I can't do now with a toolkit? Can you tell me the major concepts that are covered and where toolkits fit into the big picture? Will I simply be learning how Dojo is doing what it does or will I be able to do much more than I ever would with a toolkit?

Also, is your book the right book for a beginner like me?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi,

Has anyone been able to step through an applet's code using the Java Plug-in from Sun? If so, can you explain how? I have an applet inside of an asp that requires a sqlserver look up for authentication and the applet communicates with a servlet on Tomcat. Instead of trying to recreate this environment in my IDE, I'd like to try to run the debugger right from my browser. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike

Hi,

I just inherited an applet that runs in an asp page and interacts with a servlet on Tomcat. In order to get into the application, I need to login to the application, which involves an asp call to a SQLServer db. I have Tomcat, IIS, and SQLServer configured on my machine and I can run everything fine but I don't know how to debug the applet. Ideally, I'd like to be able to just point Eclipse to my IIS and Tomcat services and run the normal debugger. Is that possible? Is there an easy way to step through an applet?

Thanks.
OK. Well... I don't know if this helps anyone but I found the config files. THey live in the workspace directory. It turns out that the built-in zip tool provided by XP decided not to include the .meta folder I needed. What a great tool.

Admin: Please delete my posts unless you can see some benefit for others.

Thanks.
Hi,

I am trying to configure Eclipse, MyEclipse and Tomcat for a group of users. I have the workspace and all of the software stored in a common parent directory but when I copy that directory to another machine, some of the configuration is lost. In particular, I lose all of the Tomcat configuration. Does anyone know where Eclipse stores this info?

Just to try and find it I created a new directory on my hard drive and changed the location for Tomcat by going to Window>Preferences>MyEclipse>ApplicationServers>Tomcat 4. I gave the directory a very unique name and searched the entire hard drive for it and couldn't find the reference in any file.

So... Does anyone know where that data can be found?

Thanks in advance!
