screenshot of error

  • Component changed from Plugin - Fullscreen to Xinha Core

i love people that create a .doc for a screenshot *g*

...can you reproduce this error?
try the page in FireFox?, does it work, what does the JavaScript?-Console say?

what version do you use?

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by gogo

Not enough information in that screenshot to even say if it's a problem with Xinha, let alone where in Xinha.

Submitter first try in Firefox with the Javascript console open, that will give a better error message. Alternatively install the Microsoft Script Debugger which will help you to narrow the problem down.

Firefox 1.0.1 - tends to crash when editing text - plus the interface is all whacked out, I'd send a screenshot, but I don't need Niko's self-righteous, passive-aggressive cheap shots. The error is the same everytime the page loads in IE.

Errors caught from Firefox js console:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIDOMWindowInternal.focus]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://global/content/bindings/tabbrowser.xml :: setFocus :: line 638" data: no]

have not been able to re-create above js errors so I wouldn't waste your time on them just yet. IE still does not function, Firefox still looks awful. I followed the newb guide to the letter. I'm taken a look at my_config.js. Both IE & Firefox fail to pass changes in the textarea onto the next php page for entry into the database. Will look into the PHP code presently. It worked once, but not since.

using the ms debugger, line 2048 of htmlarea.js is:

this._statusBarTree.innerHTML = HTMLArea._lc("Path") + ": "; clear

applied latest nightly-build this morning, IE error seems to have been fixed. Firefox still suffers from an inordinate amount of "grey space" in the menu area. The Back button issue seems alive and well, but I have not read into that issue, which may lie in the Gecko code and not be a Xinha issue.

spoke too soon - error occurred when I began to edit text. This time on line 2047, turns out to be the same line though:

this._statusBarTree.innerHTML = HTMLArea._lc("Path") + ": "; clear

I'm using the latest version. It works fine on Firefox, but gives me "can't open the page" message on IE 6.

rchisholm: Try removing the tabbrowser extention in FF and see if it helps.

I've had this a lot with my home-rolled editor. This happens when you try to insert a block-tag inside a non-block tag using the innerHTML property. Making this more clear:


isn't strictly allowed. IE6 sometimes complains about this, and sometimes doesn't (e.g. if you make it <span><p> It seems ok most of the time).

says that SPAN inside a TD will do it. Practically, the only way to trap it is to validate the HTML before doing the innerHTML=....

Alternatively, it could go inside a try { } catch block, showing a messagebox error stating there's something wrong with the markup (slightly better than "Unknown runtime error" :) )

FUCK, I've been searching about this unknown error for a week. Finally I found that "insert a block-tag inside a non-block tag" not allowed... amazing, another Internet Explorer Secret! :)

Anyway, thank you for the answer!

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Seems not really fixable.
