I'm back to work...
|taxilian||07:04||grifo: generally it's better to just ask a question; when someone gets back we''ll answer as we can|
|grifo||07:04||it was just a way to sau hello...
Well, I've found an input bug with Safari on the mac. Seems like it doesn't like drag events with the right mouse button!
If you hold down the right mouse button then you don't get any mouse movement events.
|taxilian||15:04||someone else was mentioning that, actually
on the forum
let me know when you figure it out =]
|neilg_||15:04||Hmm, wonder if it's sending NPCocoaEventMouseDragged instead?
Chrome/Chromium doesn't so everything works properly there
That's my suspicion for right now :)
|taxilian||15:04||let me know when you figure it out =]
(which means I haven't a clue)
and, as you know, I'm not big on helping people out anyway
|neilg_||15:04||Hmm, no, we check for that. Damn. :)
Well, I'm on it!
I'll let you know when I figure something out :)
|neilg_||15:04||Wait, what? You're awesome at helping people out!|
3 finals left and I'm done with school...
|neilg_||15:04||That's fantastic news - good luck!
You may need that with a new baby ;)
|taxilian||15:04||this first one, given how badly I've done in my python class, I have to get at least 65% on the final to get an A in the class
|neilg_||15:04||Well, I definitely wish you the best of luck getting that in your final!
So, looks like Safari is bugged. I'm logging all the NPAPI events that come in - but you get none from the mouse until you release the right mouse button
|neilg_||15:04||I mean, I can hit the left mouse button and that comes in - but there are no other events from the mouse until I release the mouse button|
|taxilian||15:04||unfortunately there probably isn't anything we can do about it.. unless we can somehow fake the mouse events?|
|neilg_||15:04||I don't know how we could even do that. On the mac we completely rely on the browser telling us about the events. Looks like Safari doesn't want to do that!|
|taxilian||16:04||neilg_: do we get mousemove events while the right mouse button is down?|
No mouse move events, no drag events - no events at all from the mouse (unless I click another mouse button)
|taxilian||16:04||hmm. well, it might be possible to tie into the OS somehow to get extra events, or add a timer or something
dunno if that's worthwhile or not
|neilg_||16:04||The trouble is that it works correctly in Chrome and Chromium so we'd be working around a Safari bug
But it's very frustrating for sure!
gotta love plugins
|amackera||18:04||Has anybody tried using autoupdaters with plugins, that we know of?
I'm thinking something like Omaha on windows maybe, and Sparkle on Mac
