fun with Venkman, G. Suggest, Keystrokes

still on the bandwagon to mimic Google suggest ...
although, I'd prefer to trigger off of keystrokes rather than timer
Can someone give me the skinny on whats best to use ?
onKeyPress onKeyDown onKeyUp or ??
Explain why, on 1st keystroke, textbox.value is empty, even after these
events are triggered.

Re: JS debugging and Venkman
green newbie here with this, but also had trouble with the Interactive
tab, >value
after "set as Evaluation Object" = textbox

Whats chrome:// and is this important ?
Initially I had an error involving: venkman-url-loader.js
I did install from my Win. desktop, after reading Rob Chartier's page.

Did I hear someone say Venkman works on IE ? If not, whats
equivalent.
When I include .js files in html, bring up IE, and there's an error,
the line #'s of the error, seem to be all screwy. Is there anyway to
tell, where the actual error is ?

Yes.

That is unlikely. `onkeypress' or `onkeyup' the value should have changed.

Parse error.
Whats chrome://
It is the URI scheme for Gecko chrome resources. "(UI) Chrome is a generic
term to widgets and 'windows' used in a program as a container for another"
(en.Wikipedia).
and is this important ?
Depends.
Initially I had an error involving: venkman-url-loader.js
I did install from my Win. desktop, after reading Rob Chartier's page.
Uh-huh.
Did I hear someone say Venkman works on IE ?
Of course not, IE uses a completely different script engine and UI
framework.
If not, whats equivalent.

The line number, unless it is a fatal compilation error (where the line
number displayed is 0), does translate roughly to the line where the error
occurred. You have to find out the relevant resource for yourself, though,
unless you use a debugger. Welcome to the hell of Web development for IE.

Hi, I'm having a little problem catching keystrokes under Windows. I did a little research and found that with mscvrt.getch() one can cath a single key that is pressed. However this doesn't work when the program is run on the backround and not as the primary task. What I would like to have is a same sort of function that would also work when the program is being run on the background. I'm trying to implement a program that would listen...

Hey everyone, I've written a tutorial to the Venkman debugger for Mozilla <http://www.mozilla.org/projects/venkman/>. It covers all features that I'm aware of, and most importantly, it's written with the "normal" JavaScript programmer in mind. Thus, I've focused on a tutorial form, with clear examples and pictures, so that the user hopefully doesn't get lost. You can find it here: http://www.svendtofte.com/code/learning_venkman/

I'm trying to implement a macro feature in my application by recording and playing back keystrokes. At first I thought it would be enough to catch KeyDown in my main form, but I soon realized that I needed to catch keystrokes in menues and other forms in my app as well. I realize I can implement a keyboard hook that catches keystrokes globally, but I only want the keystrokes that are sent to my application. Any suggestions on how to...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
