IEBlog : For the SELECT few...

First, I am wondering how many peoples are working on IE?

As to SELECT (MS combobox), it's most buggy object in IE.

Now, they have windowless fix. The other problems I have :

1, OPTION style sheet support.

2, If a LABEL object is associated with SELECT. Click this LABEL, then the related SELECT get focus. Unfortunately, the SELECT always select the first item.

3, Use style sheet to set a small size to SELECT object. When drop down pop up, the longer item OPTIONs will be cut off.

Just like inline output from Firebug extension.

printfire("hellow world");

It's much easier than standout output "dump".So, no more alert(), no more dump() for debuging.

There is no way to use IE as my default development environment.

Bug 184968 - Implement Sidebar tab similar to "Page Holder" function in Mac IE 5

I like IE5/MAC showing tool tab on the left side of window. AOL Explorer has this kind of feature, too.

jEdit is my favorite java editor. It has this kind of feature. I can hide all add on tools on the side panel and reserver the main window for the file I am working on.

Firefox innerText

I just implemented a method to get innerText. It's for a complicated document.

function ccGetMZInnerText(element) {

var innerText = "";
if (element.hasChildNodes()) {

var displayType = window.getComputedStyle(element,null).getPropertyValue("display");
if (displayType != null && displayType!="none") {
for (var i = 0; i <>
if (element.tagName=="P") innerText = "\n" + innerText;
innerText = innerText + ccGetMZInnerText( element.childNodes[i] );
if (displayType!="inline") innerText = innerText + "\n";

} else {

if ( element.nodeType == 3 ) {// text
innerText = innerText + ccTextCorrection(element.nodeValue);
} else if (element.nodeType == 1) { //object
var displayType = window.getComputedStyle(element,null).getPropertyValue("display");
if (displayType == null || displayType=="none") {
} else if (displayType=="inline") {
innerText = innerText + ccTextCorrection(element.textContent);
if (element.tagName=="BR") innerText = innerText + "\n";
} else {
innerText = innerText + ccTextCorrection(element.textContent) + "\n";


return innerText;


function ccTextCorrection(fooString) { //replace to blank, and remove line break.
return fooString.replace(/ /g, " ").replace(/\n/g, "").replace(/\r/g, "");

Recently, just migrated from VSS to CVS, and felt a lot of pain.&nbsp; So far I got WinCVS the best, but the interface was still hard to use.&nbsp; I did't see a way to get server log automatically. Like editor, I had to select a file to see it. I would like to see every file editor when folder was changed.

Anyway, people is migrated to subversion, not sure what's the advantage.
