Re: [DQSD-Users] [DQSD-Devel] IE 11 breaks DQSD

2014-01-17 Thread Kim Gräsman
I can help apply changes if somebody sends them to me.

svn diff output of changes would be great, but I can probably
integrate whole files if you can zip them up.

I saw some suggestions above, but I'm not sure if any of them are good to go in?

Thanks,

 The Windows 7/8 security hoops that are needed still apply for the 64
 bit installation kit and are described in gory detail in the link below.

 Still looking at it with the most visible errors being no menu popup or
 calendar popup as mentioned below.

 What is interesting is that if I open the SEARCH.HTM manually in the IE
 browser (skip through the initialization errors) the Calendar popup will
 function.  The options menu will not.

 Is there any documentation on what functions the DLL is performing.  If
 the functions are hardcoded in the DLL it is a different type of problem
 to fix.

 I was able to get the style loader to work again by granting 'users'
 'full control' of the Quick Search Deskbar folder security rights. The
 menu itself still doesn't appear, but at least it does do something.
 This will really help re-styling it.

  I never update IE when a major version is released until they resolve
  (or workaround) the horror stories that follow.
  However, I've got bunches of friends and clients that do it anyway.
  And they all lost DQSD this month.
 
  Personally, I still live in DQSD 24/7. I've started using RoboForm,
  Notepad++ and CintaNotes to better complement my routine - but i just
  haven't found anything that works as well as DQSD for quick searches
  and certain commands (like quicksort, posting the contents of the
  clipboard to a webpage, guidgen and a couple others). Sure, it has a
  few bugs in Win7x64, but it's still the most capable system of its
  kind out there. Some of this I could automate through
  Notepad++ or RoboForm, but I'll never get the ease of
  operation that I have now with DQSD.
 
  With IE11 - the style isn't pretty, but with the UA-Compat line
  (Thanks, Brent!) and some significant edits I'm able to get it closer
  to how it was. A long way to go.
 
  For debugging, use this in DQSD:
 
  vbsx :document.body.outerHTML
 
  That'll copy the currently rendered HTML for you so you can find
  anything that might be broken.
 
 
  More issues and a couple fixes:
 
  * The focus hotkey doesn't work reliably.
 
  To fix: enable the option to allow active content to run in files on
  my computer in the IE advanced options.
 
  * Popup menu isn't available.
 
  jsx showpop();
 
  * Popup calendar doesn't load.
  * Sometimes 2 windows will appear when searching
  * Popup help doesn't load correctly
 
  No fix.

  Well the 64-bit Windows 7 version has been working well
  for IE9  10 for
  some time . The install only takes about 5 minutes of
  minor hoop-jumping to
  overcome Windows 7 security settings.
  
  I just installed IE11 and. sure enough _javascript_
  errors. The "empty"
  error in the Clocks.js script can be commented out to
  allow further testing
  (otherwise you get an error every clock refresh!). Just
  search for "empty"
  in the Clocks.js file.
  
  Once that is commented out the DQSD taskbar window becomes
  a
  vertical/horizontal scroll window - sort of amusing.
  Then the taskbar can
  be stretched vertically for access.
  
  Once that is done, the aliases will work. But if a "test"
  or "newegg.com"
  or "some random search text" is entered then a "nodeValue"
  error is
  generated in Defer_tools.js.
  
  I don't know Java so I have no idea why IE11 fails when
  IE10 works fine. Is
  this some deprecated feature problem? Is IE11 trying for
  force use of
  "newer" Java syntax? Anyway to force it NOT to do that?
  
  
  Luv my DQSD I have not seen any IE11 "New"
  features/performance
  improvements I can't live without.
  
  I know the DQSD java is old. Is there some "Java version"
  declaration
  statement need to enable the older syntax to run as-is.
  In FORTRAN we could
  always compile older code with a "version" switch to
  negate a re-write when
  using a newer compiler version. 
  
  Any Java gurus out there listening?
