TWikiGuest - 2017-11-09<br>">

Well, I tried; but I get a security exception loading the jar. It's probably our paranoid proxies - I just discovered TWikiDraw doesn't work either. Anyone know how to fix that?

The security exception seemed to be non fatal (no clipboard access, but that's ok.. we could live with that)... I changed a linebreak in savecmd and the width and height which IE seemed not to like.. It seems to work except that the buttons are partly out of the frame...

If you don't use sockets to get and send content, then there should be no issue with passing proxies as long as the applet resides on the same server that the applet is communicating with to get and send content. An known issue in Communciator is if you have no DNS inside the company (the proxy takes care of the DNS request), then the Browser cannot verify the address and throws a security exception (there is a setting for Communicator to tell him to trust the proxy server).

It seems to have some pretty serious problems right now. Like try marking a word italic and then bold and it'll erase half of the words on the line. The top buttons and bottom seems to disappear on my screen as well (ie6/xp).

I tried this with height=300 on the applet element, and it clipped the applet on both IE5 and Netscape 4.x, failing to show the top row of buttons. On Opera 5, it failed to load the applet at all, although other applet sites do work - I'm using Sun's JRE 1.3.1 plugin with Opera 5.12.

The applet seems to be better sized on Communicator 4.77 on Linux.. The buttons do appear correctly and it doesn't seem to eat the text when clicking on italics + bold like David said... Preview does not seem to work, but I'm not sure it is supposed to...

Sorry for the problems, I did try to say this was a caveat emptor; I really haven't had time as I've been travelling on business for the last 2 weeks.

The "fit to area" function which clips the buttons for the in-browser invocation is really tacky. Because awt uses native proxies to implement textareas, they have to be sized in terms of "lines" and "columns". This means that you have to "guess" a sizing factor for the textarea that allows buttons to be visible. I'm sure there's a better way to do this, I just haven't found it yet.

Preview doesn't work because it needs a special save script which isn't installed.

I see the problem with IE6. It's an easy fix (there are all sorts of inconsistencies in IE Java and this is one known one).

Fixed version has been uploaded. If it takes a while to load, it's because the attached jar now contains all the sources...
