ftang, according to waterson, you don't need to do this in charsetDetectorsOverlay.js: /* this is really hacky, but waterson say it will work */ setTimeout("LoadDetectorsMenu()", 10000); waterson, can you explain to ftang what he needs to do?
The "Right Way" (quotes like Dr. Evil) is to use something like: document.addEventListener('load', MyOnloadHandler, false); (cc hyatt and joki -- I looked at DOM Level 2 spec and it's different from our current APIs; obviously, using our current APIs is the only way to make this work right now.) This effectively adds an 'onload' handler to your document.
How is the DOM spec different from our stuff? We do support multiple way to do this internally but among them is the DOM compliant one that you gave an example of.
Never mind. I was looking at a DOM L2 spec dated March 4, 1999.
I try what waterson put down but it does not work. I may make some stupid mistake there. No time to work on this . Move to M12
reassign Charset Auto Detect menu bugs to cata per bobj/ftang chat.
Out of time for M13, moving to M14.
change OS to ALL
Putting on PDT+ radar for beta1.
On 1999-10-15 13:58, ftang said he tried waterson's suggestion, but it did not work. But there have been no further comments. Can someone (ftang or waterson) offer some enlightenment or details?
cata told me he will change the mecanism for auto detector menu to the mechanism he used for charset menu, in that case, this code will simply go away when he change that.
Frank is right.
