Writing Out To A Text File With Javascript

Jul 23, 2005

What I want to do is create a HTML form that allows the user to enter data
into about 10 fields, and then based on the entered data, writes out data
strings to a text file. I am attempting to create a form for entering
simple rectangle CAD data via a HTML form, which will be written to a text
file, and then imported into a CAD program.

The form would contain prompt boxes for things like length, width, radius
size, step/repeat, etc. When the user hits the "SUBMIT" button, the data
strings would be written out to the filename the user specified. Below is
an example of data strings to be ouputted. Variables are &L, &W, &R,
&STEPX, &STEPY, &XN, &YN.

Chromium Bookmarklet (insert Text At Cursor)?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm not very well versed in javascript. I'm trying to make a bookmarklet that when I click it will either append text to what I've already written or insert the predefined text at the cursor's position in a textarea. Also the browser I'm trying to do this on is Chromium.

Here's what I have:javascript:void((function(){document.getElementsByTagName('textarea')[0].value='ಠ_ಠ'})())

but this of course changes the entire value of the text field to: ಠ_ಠ ...rather than appending or inserting at the cursor position. I'm guessing append would be the simplest, though cursor position would be most efficient.

Getting Firefox 1.5 To Show .pgn-file In Frame And Then Access It's Text?

Mar 29, 2009

A pgn-file is a plain text file. It's used for chessgames.I want Firefox 1.5.0.12 on Win XP SP2 to show the pgn-file in a frame when I click on the link.That's the first problem: Since I installed some years ago some chessprogram Firefox always asks what to do with a .pgn-file (Download dialog).I know I can change this behaviour either in config:about or in some configuration file for mime types.But how to do that??? (There are extensions for that, but only for Firefox 2 and higher. ): And I would prefer to change it via the about:config-file or in the mime-configuration file, some .rdf-file I think.Then I want to access the plain text in that frame with javascript. How could I do that?(If you need a pgn-file to test, just take any text-file and rename the ending to .pgn.)

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.

Reading External Text File - Load The Content Of The File Into A Variable In Script

Jul 16, 2010

I'm writing a script and I've encountered a problem.. I have a txt file with many words, each word in a different line. For example: the file words.txt contains:

word1
word2
word3
word4
word5

I need to load the content of the file into a variable in my script. I prefer that all the words will be in the same variable with line breaks, but if you'll figure out a way to put it in an array, it's ok too. I really don't know how to do it, and I tried to google but didn't understand.. By the way, I don't want to change the txt file to js file, I need it to remain txt..

Bookmarklet

Jan 21, 2007

I have a bookmarklet which copies a marked set of characters into a searchpage in our dictionary. If nothing is copied, a window opens where you can type a word.

BTW, it is for firefox 2.0.

javascript:s=window.getSelection();if(s=='')for(i= 0;i<frames.length;i++){s=frames[i].document.getSelection();if(s)break;}if(!s)void(s= prompt('some
text.',''));if(s){test=open('URL/search.pl?searchphrase='+escape(s));test.focus();}
This works well.

We have another search /command which needs to be finished with &search= after the searchphrase

searchphrase="here comes the markedtyped set of characters"&search=

Can anyone of you help me changing the bookmarklet or point me to a site where I can read more about this?
