|dougma||00:06||Hrishikesh: more: http://www.firebreath.org/display/documentation/struct%20FB%20script_error|
|Hrishikesh||00:06||dougma: i'm using throw FB::script_error(" File doesn't Exist");
this is first line of my code but its not generating exception in JS
|dougma||00:06||first line where?|
|Hrishikesh||00:06||in my function
i have a function in my npapi called openFile
i want to throw the exception when file doesn't exist
but its not throwing exception even if file is not present at path
|dougma||00:06||i get an exception... but the message is "Error calling method on NPObject!"
you are catching in the js?
|Hrishikesh||00:06||dougma: so its not passing exception?
this is my function
let me try chrome
|Hrishikesh||01:06||let me try ff|
|dougma||01:06||yeah i get the exception|
|Hrishikesh||01:06||not working for me in firefox 4|
|dougma||01:06||slightly different message
so you are catching it in the js?
do i have to add something else to the class definition?
|dougma||01:06||don't think so.|
do you have the latest firebreath?
i think mine is not updated
|dougma||01:06||yeah, i am on master|
|Hrishikesh||01:06||was there any bug in exception ?
i cloned this before couple of month
|dougma||01:06||yeah, maybe try a newer version|
|Hrishikesh||01:06||how can i update my old version?|
|dougma||01:06||how did you get your old version?|
|dougma||02:06||taxilian_away: why does FB::AsyncCallManager::shutdown bother attempting to complete the async callbacks on shutdown? Is it essential? I'm thinking of a patch to make it optional.|
|Hrishikesh||02:06||dougma: i've used git
i've used git pull
how to merge it in my old version?
I need to make NPAPI plugin for DirectFB, embedded linux. Is it possible with FireBreath, I have added more details over here, Please try to answer it, I am stuck. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6341731/can-i-build-firebreath-npapi-plugin-for-directfb
|_pq_||04:06||Does webkit in directfb support npapi plugins at all?|
|Sunny_||04:06||<_pq_> yes, Midori on directFB supports it|
|_pq_||04:06||firebreath in Linux uses gtk i guess you could use it provided you have gtk in your platform
did you try at all?
|Sunny_||04:06||no, I have not tried
I was worried because I saw some X11 files getting compiled to create a plugin
|Hrishikesh||04:06||anyone know how to throw exception from plugin?
throw FB::script_error(" File doesn't Exist");
|_pq_||04:06||should be like that|
|Hrishikesh||04:06||i'm using this but its showing wrong error message|
|_pq_||04:06||that's a browser issue I think|
|Hrishikesh||04:06||Error calling method on NPObject
its showing this error for firefox as well as chrome
|_pq_||04:06||I got si liar issues. I think it's a problem in specifications regarding that|
so how we can show the correct exception message/
is there any way?
|_pq_||04:06||sunny_: I don't know if firebreath uses some x specific
I surrendered on that long ago
we could ask fb develops this afternoon
|Sunny_||04:06||_pq_:Thanks for this|
|_pq_||04:06||Sunny_ : try building that then if you have problems I'd gladly help you|
|taxilian||09:06||dougma: YES! Completing the async calls on shutdown is *absolutely* essentail
do *NOT* make it optional
you will best case get memory leaks
worst case you will potentially cause crashes
FireBreathBot: tell hrishikesh there is a bug in latest Chrome, FF4, and Safari that make exception messages get lost. Nothing we can do about it, I'm afraid
|FireBreathBot||09:06||taxilian: I'll pass that on when hrishikesh is around.|
|taxilian||09:06||anyone know if firefox extensions get their own private dom area?|
|dougma||18:06||taxilian: seems there's a double-free around ScheduleAsyncCall
where the return code is checked for failure the code tends to delete the call object which was passed in.
but that object still exists in the AsyncCallManager
or can do.
if BrowerHost::_scheduleAsyncCall returns false
which can happen on activex
maybe a patch will explain it better. :)
|chieh||19:06||is there anyone in here?
i have a quick question regarding to FB
I am currently working on a project where I want the browser to be able to print out a local copy text file, am I able to write an NPAPI extension with FB to do that?
|chieh||19:06||so you see
normally when u do printing on webbrowsers
this pop up shows up
i want to avoid that and print immediately
can I do that too?
|dougma||19:06||oh... you still want to print the web page?|
i want to print a text file
|dougma||19:06||ok, yeah should be possible then|
|chieh||19:06||saved on the hard drive
can you give me some pointers on how fb fit into the picture?
do i just use fb to make system calls?
|dougma||19:06||you will add a method to your plugin called PrintFile() or whatever is appropriate
you will have to do all the printing yourself.
FB will make it so that the plugin works in all browsers
ok, thank you very much, i can look further into it
|kylehuff||21:06||taxilian: you around?|
