Re: [DQSD-Users] Windows 7 RC 64 Bit Install Help needed

2009-05-11 Thread David Blume
I've been concerned about this.  I wish I could help with the development.

I could live with a gadget as long as Windows+S still brought it to the
foreground and gave its edit box focus (maybe even pasted the current
selection or clipboard contents in there...).  I'd also love the searches
with popup windows to continue to work.  (Like mwd /popup used to, and the
newer, unreleased, df search does.)

Ideally, though, I'd like to have its edit box always be present so that I
could navigate to it via mouse, too, as it is on the Taskbar in current
Windows OSes.  I realize that that may be too much to ask for, though.

This is the *only* thing that makes me hesitant about Windows 7.  That's how
important DQSD is.

 I haven't even tried on Win7. Given  the changes in the task bar, I'm not

 I think we need to find a way to work within the MS guidelines if we don't
 want to face this every time they ship a new version. Perhaps as a Windows
 Gadget?

Thanks, Kim,

For anybody who's interested, there's a screenshot of the new search in
action here:

I won't take offense if anybody takes ownership of it and improves it.  :)

[DQSD-Users] New popup search request: dictionary API search to replace mwd /p

2009-04-15 Thread David Blume
For years, I've loved the popup feature of the mwd search mwd searchterm
/p which I alias to searchterm:.  This link includes a picture of how
it used to look:

http://dblume.livejournal.com/65402.html

It is absolutely my favorite feature.  By not opening up a new tab or
window, it was very efficient and nonobtrusive.

Every few months, though, merriam-webster.com would change the layout of
their page, forcing us to tweak the mwd search to make the popup feature
work again.  This has been going on for years.  The last couple of months,
merriam-webster.com changed it, broke my search, changed it again, making my
search work again (huzzah!), changed it again, and now it's broken again.

I've finally given up on merriam-webster.com.

Does anybody have the bandwidth to create a new dictionary search that opens
a popup window that uses a published (not-ever-changing) API?  How about the
aonaware api?

http://www.aonaware.com/services.htm

Here's an example of the actual API our new search would use (try gcide
for the dictId, and a word like internecine for the word field):

http://services.aonaware.com/DictService/DictService.asmx?op=DefineInDict

It seems like that would be so much more stable.  (Although I arbitrarily
chose DefineInDict with gcide over Devine, that's the feature I'd be
most interested in.  I don't care about a lot of definitions, I just want
one authoritative one.)

Anybody willing to give it a crack?  The UI of the popup feature from the
mwd search applied to the response from aonaware's dictionary API
DefineInDict request?

Re: [DQSD-Users] mwd /p stopped working

2008-09-24 Thread David Blume
I'm pretty sure that this is due to a change over at Merriam Websters.
 Their cgi-bin link just doesn't work anymore.

I've already dirtied my own sandbox's mwd.xml.  But I don't think the regular
mwd search worked anymore either.  Somebody with a clean sandbox
could try it out by typing,

mwd word

in the DQSD.  The popups haven't been a problem.  I've had this
working for years.

Environments:

launchmode=1;  (On two computers.  Default browser is Mozilla Firefox
3.0.1. on each.)
OS: Windows XP (on one computer), Windows Vista (on another)

 It looks like Merriam Websters has changed their cgi-bin
 implementation, because mwd /p doesn't work anymore.

 Maybe the fix is simply to remove cgi-bin/ from the URL, but this
 isn't something I can easily test until I get some free time at home.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Latest mwd search

2008-02-26 Thread David Blume
Wow.  No sooner do I send that out than I find a class of words that don't
parse correctly for the popup.

mwd /p declare

doesn't work.  I made it work by changing one of the regular expressions in
mwd.xml like so:

@@ -96,7 +96,7 @@
   var windowW = 500;

   var sBody = xmlHttp.responseText.replace( /[\r\n]/gi,  );
-  var re = /(div\sclass=entry\smisc(.+)\/div\/div)/mig;
+  var re =
/(div\sclass=entry\smisc(.+)[\/span|\/div]\/div)/mig;
   var results = re.exec( sBody );
   if ( results != null )
   {

I don't know if that's the right way to handle this situation though.
Wonder if the (.+) should be greedy or not, too...

[DQSD-Users] mwd.xml: m-w.com needs to be changed to merriam-webster.com

2008-02-08 Thread David Blume
The mwd.xml script has stopped working again. Although most of
m-w.comredirects to
merriam-webster.com, it looks like some has stopped doing so.

A part of the fix is to simply replace m-w.com with merriam-webster.com in
all the urls.

This is a sufficient fix for the popup mode.  The normal mode is a little
off.  Now the Merriam-Webster page shows the requested word as, va=word
instead of word.

Here's a snippet in Python that demonstrates the issue with m-w.com.

 import win32com.client
 xmlHttp = win32com.client.Dispatch('Microsoft.XmlHttp')
 xmlHttp.open(GET, http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/word;, False)
 xmlHttp.send()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File interactive input, line 1, in module
  File COMObject Microsoft.XmlHttp, line 2, in send
com_error: (-2147352567, 'Exception occurred.', (0, 'msxml3.dll', 'Access is
denied.\r\n', None, 0, -2147024891), None)

But if you try it with merriam-webster.com, you'll get a good response.

 xmlHttp.open(GET, http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/word;,
False)
 xmlHttp.send()
 xmlHttp.responseText[:20]

Re: [DQSD-Users] mwd /p stopped working?

2007-10-14 Thread David Blume
Sorry, Everybody,

My last reply to Shawn was premature.  Shawn's mwd /popup fix is a fine
interim fix.

The fact that the list of spelling suggestions didn't include correct links
is not a new problem.  What's more important is that support for multiple
entries for a word is broken. (Eg., mwd /popup register vs. mwd
register)

mwd.xml needs some TLC.  I don't actually know any javascript, but I'm
willing to give it a look when I free up in a couple of weeks.

Re: [DQSD-Users] mwd /p stopped working?

2007-10-13 Thread David Blume
Wow!  Thanks so much for the quick reply.  It works well, with a minor
exception.  (It doesn't handle misspellings correctly.  Links in the popup
are not links in that case.)  For example, try mwd /p missspell  Still,
I'm delighted to have the popup back.

It's a feature I love so much I once blogged about it.  There's an image of
the old popup window there, too:  http://dblume.livejournal.com/65402.html

Thanks again,

BTW, I now see that the version of mwd.xml I had was

 Hi David,

  Anybody else notice that searching m-w.com with mwd /p %s

 I've attached a fixed version. I don't actually use this search, so let
 me know if it's insufficient.

Re: [DQSD-Users] Vista RC1 error message with DQSD 4.0 rc2

2007-01-11 Thread David Blume

Thanks for the quick reply, Kim!

Yes, using the default Google search wasn't working.

No, I hadn't changed any preferences yet.  I don't even see
useExternalBrowser in the default preferences.js at all.

What did fix my problem was setting IE7 as my default browser.  Only then
did I discover that I cannot reset FireFox as my default browser.  (
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=352424 which is not RESOLVED in
2.0.0.1)

Looks like I'm stuck with IE7, but at least DSQD works again.

I can't get used to using dic instead the postfix : for dictionary...

Thank you!

Hi David,

 When searching for a regular search term, I get the following
 message in an Internet Explorer Script Error window:

Is this when using the default Google search, or for some specific search?

I used to get this on XP, but I got rid of it somehow. I see in my
localprefs.js that I have

  // useExternalBrowser = true;

i.e. it is commented out, and using the default.

Do you have a custom setting for useExternalBrowser? I have a vague
feeling
that that's what fixed it for me.

[DQSD-Users] Vista RC1 error message with DQSD 4.0 rc2

2007-01-10 Thread David Blume

I use DQSD on all my XP system, and love it.  On my one Vista system (RC1,
build 5600), I've installed DQSD 4.0 rc2.  (I also installed the
DSQD-Vista.zip themes, and they look great, but have no affect on the
following bug.)

When searching for a regular search term, I get the following message in an
Internet Explorer Script Error window:

Line: 78
Char: 5
Error: Unspecified error.
Code: 0
Url: file:///F:/Program%20Files/Quick%20Search%20Deskbar/search.htm
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?  (Yes) (No)

Regardless of how I answer, a browser window does not come up.  (I've set
Firefox 2.0.0.1 as my default browser.)  However, most other DQSD features
do work.  ! reloads.  dqsd brings up the sourceforge page.  right-clicking
brings up the calendar.  clicking on the chevrons brings up the menu of
keywords.  ?, however, brings up a window that says, Cannot find
documentation  (But I don't care about that.)

Is this a known issue?  I checked the FAQ, but Vista does not appear there.
I'd be happy to help debug the issue if I'm the only one who can reproduce
it.  (But I'd need guidance in gathering what you need.)

Thanks,
David
