ISP and DNS problems have been resolved -- it's time to join the Swixml FORUM

After more problems with an ISP and related forum downtime, I think  
the forum is now readily available for all swixml developers and  
users at:
http://www.swixml.org/forum/

Again, the content of the mailing list is not lost and available and  
searchable here:
http://www.mail-archive.com/forum%40carlsbadcubes.com/

Frank over in Berlin, Germany and Kate at the East Coast have  
confirmed their continued involvement and will play an even stronger  
role in the future. Both are administratoring the newly created forum.

OK, it's time to register and join. See you all at
http://www.swixml.org/forum/

Important News about the Swixml User Forum / Mailinglist

Like many of you have noticed, we experienced a lot of problems with  
the Swixml Mailinglist lately.
The only way to improve things was to change ISPs and the Swixml.org  
web site is hosted at "Host It Now Networks" since 2/22/2006.
The transition went very smoothly without any downtime.

Now I'd like to retire the mailinglist, and switch over to a "real"  
forum like SMF, which is installed and readily available at :
http://www.swixml.org/forum/

Fortunately, the old mailing list's content is backedup at several  
places around the net, like:
http://www.mail-archive.com/forum%40carlsbadcubes.com/
or at http://news.gmane.org/

However, I have to ask you to re-register at the new forum.

Frank over in Berlin Germany and Kate at the East Coast have already  
signed up and confirmed their continued involvement. Both will play  
an even stronger role in the future and are the administrators of the  
newly created forum.

If you haven't already done so, read Joshua Marinacci Article:  
"Building GUIs with SwiXml" over at java.net or here: http:// 
www.swixml.org/buildgui.pdf
Swixml is still going strong, the distribution is currently download  
a little over 100-times per day on average and while Swixml has seen  
hardly any updates lately, I'd like to put it on a faster update  
cycle again and add some interesting new capabilities as well.

Problem with TextArea

Hi,
      When I use "\n" in the text of the TextArea. But it is not considering it as
a newline instead it is printing the text with "\n" character. I tried to debug
and final found out that the SwiXML parsing (i.e SAX parser) used is converting the
"\n" to "\\n" so that in the output the "\n" is printed as it is.

<textarea text="This is a sample message.\n This is a sample message."/>

                        Please help me to get rid of this situation. I want the SwiXML to recognize
the "\n" as a newline character.

regards,
Rajkumar

Problems with tables

Hi all,

i've encountered problems with rendering tables. In fact i wasn't  
able to render a simple table. Can anyone provide me a simple example?

Greeting

Custom Tags: Anyone doing it?

Greetings,

I am starting a new project and think that using custom tags would be a 
great solution to my problem.

Are there anyone here who can tell me there experiences using custom tags?

Thanks 

whatever happened to franklin?

(no subject)

I am writing my Master Thesis. The main area of it will be GUI - Java - XML and analyses of different libraries for creating GUI from XML with use of Java .
I would like to ask, if someone could give me some advice. The most important part of this thesis is to choose proper and able for future development libraries. Already I have decided to analyse SwiXml and Thinlet.
The question is what do you think about this choice and which other would you consider worth of writing about (because of large number of them - not all of them can be included in my work).
I will be really thankful for any answer.

applet problem

I've been successful creating an application that works both as an 
applet and as a client. I also have had no problems displaying JDialog's 
as well.  What I now would like to do is create a base XDlg class that 
will deal with the vast majority of my dozen plus JDialog's. By design, 
each XML file would consistently name the variables. So, JDialog is 
_dialog, and the (optional) ok/cancel JButton's _ok and _can. This 
approach works perfectly as a client application. However, as an applet, 
none of the variables are "discovered".

Is there a workaround/solution to this? Thanks.

Steve
-------------------------------------------------------
public class XDlg {
   protected   boolean     _saved;
   public      SwingEngine _se;
   public      JDialog     _dialog;
   public      JButton     _ok, _can;

   XDlg(URL url)
   {
       _se = new SwingEngine(this);
       render(url);
   }

   XDlg()
   {
   }

   protected void render(URL url)
   {
       try {
           _se.render(url);
       } catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(System.out); 
D.fatal(e.toString()); }
   }

   public Action a_ok = new AbstractAction() {
       public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
           ok();
   }};

   public Action a_can = new AbstractAction() {
       public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
           can();
   }};

   public void ok()
   {
       save();
       setVisible(false);
   }

   public void can()
   {
       setVisible(false);
   }

   public void save()
   {
       _saved = true;
   }

   public void setVisible(boolean v)
   {
       if (_dialog != null)
           _dialog.setVisible(v);
   }

   public void show()
   {
       if (_ok != null)
           _dialog.getRootPane().setDefaultButton(_ok);

       _dialog.pack();
       _dialog.setVisible(true);
   }
}

public class Foo extends XDlg
{
   public JButton _customButton;

   Foo()
   {
     super(new URL(xxx));
     show();
   }
}

applet problem (part 2)

I have a workaround below. I can live with it, and clearly it's not a 
generic solution. Also note that I have all the new patches from the CVS.

Steve
-----------------------------------
try {
   _se.render(url);
} catch (Exception e) {    e.printStackTrace(System.out); 
D.fatal(e.toString()); }

 if (not an applet)
        return;

Iterator it = _se.getAllComponentItertor();

while (it != null && it.hasNext()) {
  Object o = it.next();

  if (o instanceof JDialog)
      _dialog = (JDialog) o;
  else
  if (o.getClass() == JButton.class) {
    JButton b      = (JButton) o;
    Action  action = b.getAction();

    if      (action == a_ok)  _ok  = b;
    else if (action == a_can) _can = b;
  }
}
