Subject AW: Trinidad: How does PPR replace content in the dom?
Date Fri, 08 Dec 2006 09:09:45 GMT
Thanks a lot! This made it work:

writer.writeAttribute("defer", Boolean.TRUE, null);

In my code I had

writer.writeAttribute("defer", "true", null);

which didn't work...

Now it works in Firefox without any JavaScript errors. In IE I get a strange error located
inside the dojo Javascript sources. So I have to dig deeper in the dojo sources. But anyway
your hint brought me a great step further!

But how is the data loaded into the IFrame copied into the main page?

Roughly speaking, yes, though it's a lot more complicated than that.

No, it's actually more clever than that - as long as you write out the
script element using ResponseWriter.startElement.  My memory's gotten
a little fuzy on the details - you may
also need to call writeAttribute("defer", Boolean.TRUE, null).  But,
at any rate, the script
is blocked for execution in the iframe, then executed in the main page.

When I get the chance to rewrite the code to use XMLHttp instead of an iframe,
this gets a bit easier in some ways (a bit harder in others).

is copied into the mainframe and not in the iframe? Is there a special trick I can use in
a component using PPR capabilities? I would like to do it the Trinidad way, because I would
like to donate my DragAndDrop component (as soon as it works) back to Trinidad.
