Mozilla, XML And JavaScript

Jul 20, 2005

can somebody give me a minimal example of how to read xml
file into mozilla AND run some Javascript funcion?

Mozilla can read xml files directly and css files can
be included as well, that works for me.
But I would like to do some operations with the DOM tree.

My question is Mozilla only, I would apperciate some
minimal example (like alert(1)) and especially some
URL pointers.

Javascript Work In NN/Mozilla

Jul 20, 2005

could you kindly help me to solve a compatibility problem that involves
Internet Explorer and NN/Mozilla.

I created a html page that contains a form (its name is "Modulo") and some
text boxes. After clicking on a button, a popup appears.
I tried to modify the text of "Testo" textbox from the popup windows by
using the following javascript code:

window.opener.Modulo.Testo.value=window.opener.Mod ulo.Testo.value + " This
will be added to Testo textbox!";

The code is correctly run by Internet Explorer and the "Testo" textbox in
the calling html page is successfully updated.

When I try to open these pages with Mozilla, the javascript code that should
update the textbox is ignored. How can I solve this problem?

Javascript And Mozilla (1.5MacOSX)

Dec 5, 2003

I have looked into creating a javascript that will do a PopUp "Exit Poll" when the client backs out or links forward from the domain. It is a moderated script I found through discussions on this forum.

Now it works great in MSIE5.2.2 on MacOS10.1.5, but I'm finding I better also make sure it works in Mozilla if I have any chance of making it work on the PC side. When i try it in Mozilla, I get Javascript console saying "loadpopup() is not defined"

I've found a couple javascripts that work in MSIE but not Mozilla..this is getting irritating to say the least.

For MacOS10.3 owners using Safari, is the browser compatibility with javascript any better? I feel like I need to get away from MSIE5.2.2 altogether now. And no..I'm not buying a PC. Code:

XML Document Passed As Jsp Parameter In Javascript Ok With Mozilla, Not In IE!!

Sep 27, 2007

I have a strange problem... I have a form with a text area that contains an XML document. This document can be modified by the user.

Once the document has been modified, the user pressed the "Submit" button to submit the modification (onclick=modify())... and go to another jsp page.... in my javascript, I have the following code:

function modify()
myRand=parseInt(Math.random()*99999999); // cache buster
var docXML=document.forms[0].xml.value;
var plist="myRand="+myRand+"&docXML="+escape(docXML);

With Firefox, the problem does not occur.... but with Explorer, the form is not even submitted!!!!! Is there a workaround for this? The XML document is not even very big.

JavaScript Image Refresh In Mozilla And Opera

Sep 15, 2004

We've got a server-side page (status.php) that dynamically generates a GIF image. The displayed image depends on the value of a boolean field in a database. Just calling the page displays the current value of the boolean, calling it with a parameter switch (status.php?switch) flips the database value and generates a new image. We've included headers to prevent caching of the image by the browser.

Whenever our HTML page is displayed in the browser, we just include an image that shows the current status: img src='status.php'/

We want to allow the user to click the image, which then inverts the boolean status in the database: img src='status.php' onclick='this.src=status.php?switch;'/

This works great in Internet Explorer, but both Mozilla and Opera only allow to switch once. My idea of the problem is that those browsers think like this; after one click, the src is already 'status.php?switch', so changing the src again would be redundent in their eyes, so they won't do it.

We found a temporary solution by generating the current time as a parameter in the image URL: img src='status.php' onclick='this.src=status.php?switch+(new Date());'/
However, this is not a very elegant solution.

Does anyone know a proper solution to this? This means, forcing Mozilla and Opera to load an image using JavaScript, even though the URL of the image didn't change?

Writing To Firefox/Mozilla Javascript Console

Apr 13, 2005

Firefox has a Javascript Console that has 3 panels besides "All" and "Clear": "Errors", "Warnings", "Message".

Does anyone know a way to log a message in the Message panel with JavaScript? That would really help debugging. I know there's a way involving XPCOM, but that only works with "trusted" scripts, and scripts loaded thru html aren't trusted.

When The Images Rotate In Mozilla In Between The Rotations, Mozilla Browser Adds A Little Colored Square That Represents A Blank Image?

Jul 16, 2009

had this in browsers areas but people told me I should put it here in Javascript because more people here would probably have seen it before and know why it happens. I have basic Javascript that rotates images. I've noticed any kind of Javascript code that rotates images has this same problem only in Mozilla. When the images rotate in Mozilla in between the rotations, Mozilla browser adds a little colored square that represents a blank image that are able to be seen does anyone know why Mozilla Browser adds that? For example when looking at this page in Mozilla can see it. if you know if this is some Mozilla problem with Javascript and images. Doesn't happen with IE and other browsers shows the images only and nothing else.

Mozilla And DOM

Oct 29, 2006

I have an 'input' that is of type= "image", and name="butt",
that I need to enable/disable from time to time.

In IE (6) I used [document.theform..butt.disabled=condition] and it worked
fine. However, in a Mozilla (latest vers, no number avail) it doesn't see
this as an object. As a workaround I declared a global var 'theButton' and
used 'onLoad="theButton=this;"' within that 'input' to set the value, and
this works fine in both Moz & IE.

Having to use a global var is not a problem, but I would like to know why
the original attempt didn't work in both browsers? The 'form' that 'butt'
is a member of contains 1 select, 3 type="text" inputs, and finaly the
type="image" input.

Perhaps Moz doesn't add an 'input' of type="image" to the collection if the
types are mixed?

Mozilla DOM Element

Jul 3, 2006

I have a function which dynamically adds to a table. It receives a
variable which basically encapsulates this:

<div id="tableid">

It's worth nothing that the incoming variable is a product of XSLT
transformation, so I think it's technically an XML DOM element
(although I'm not too sure on the difference between the XML DOM and
the HTML DOM).

On the incoming variable, I do getElementsByTagName("tr") and -("td")
to get NodeLists of the rows and columns respectively. To insert them
into the table, I create new tr and td elements, then copy the value
over, like this:

//stuff to get a column
trs = getElementsByTagName("tr");
tds = trs[i].getElementsByTagName("td");
thiscol = tds[j];

//stuff to copy the column value
new_tr = document.createElement("tr");
new_td = document.createElement("td");
new_td.innerHTML = thiscol.xml

The .xml part is a Microsoft creation, so the only works in Internet
Explorer. In anything else the column value is rendered as 'undefined'.

I'm trying to make things work in Mozilla too, but an Element node
(thiscol.nodeType gives me &#391;') doesn't have nodeValue implemented.
InnerHTML and OuterHTML are not implemented either.

How on earth are you supposed to extract a value from an XML node if
nodeValue is not defined? Am I going about things in the wrong way?

Innerxml For Mozilla

Jan 14, 2004

function maak(strXML){
var objDOMParser = new DOMParser();
var objDoc = objDOMParser.parseFromString('<xml>'+strXML+'</xml>', "text/xml");

while (this.hasChildNodes()) this.removeChild(this.lastChild);
var objImportedNode;
for (var i=0; i < objDoc.childNodes[0].childNodes.length; i++) {
switch (objDoc.childNodes[0].childNodes[i].nodeType){
case 3: objImportedNode = document.createTextNode(objDoc.childNodes[0].childNodes[i].data);
objImportedNode = document.importNode(objDoc.childNodes[0].childNodes[i], true);break;
} //End: for

function getXML() {
var objXMLSerializer = new XMLSerializer();
var temp=this.childNodes.length-1;
var strXML=''
for (var i=0;i==temp;i++){

switch (this.childNodes[i].nodeType){
case 3: strXML+=this.childNodes[i].data.replace(/</g,'&lt;').replace(/>/g,'&gt;');
default: strXML+=objXMLSerializer.serializeToString(this.childNodes[i]);


return strXML;

Node.prototype.__defineGetter__("innerXML", getXML);
Node.prototype.__defineSetter__("innerXML", maak);

I've made these functions quite some time ago, and quite possibly this code is quite ugly, but it works. Obviously this would be only useful if you are a masochistic xhtml-coder and you want an easy way (kind of contradictory with a masochist) to dynamically add or remove markup/text.
