Yes.  I couldn’t find a publicly available documentation for it.  We need to 
figure out whether there is any compatibility concerns for making them 
(anchor/focus and base/extent) behave the same if we’re to remove it in WebKit.

Re: [selection] Selection.setBaseAndExtent

2014-08-07 Thread Tim Down
One possible reason for that is that there is no documentation for it
anywhere. At least, none that I've ever been able to find, and I'm more
interested than the average developer. This goes too for other WebKit
extensions such as range.expand().

Re: [selection] Selection.setBaseAndExtent

2014-08-06 Thread Tim Down
This doesn't fully cover what setBaseAndExtent() does in WebKit/Blink: as
you pointed out yourself, it acts like extend(), which allows programmatic
creation of backwards selection by providing a focus (extent) that is
earlier in the document than the anchor (base). Your text doesn't cover the
backwards case.

Borrowing from the spec text for extend() and minus all the links to
definitions, how about:

void setBaseAndExtent (Node baseNode, unsigned long baseOffset, Node
extentNode, unsigned long extentOffset);

The setBaseAndExtent(baseNode, baseOffset, extentNode, extentOffset) method
must run these steps:

1. Let base be the boundary point (baseNode, baseOffset) and extent be the
boundary point (extentNode, extentOffset).
2. Let new range be a new range.
3. If base is equal to extent, set new range's start and end to (baseNode,
baseOffset).
4. Otherwise, if base is before to extent, set new range's start to base,
then set its end to extent.
5. Otherwise, set new range's start to extent, then set its end to base.
6. Set the context object's range to new range.
7. If extent is before base, set the context object's direction to
backwards. Otherwise, set it to forwards.

 I noticed that some websites use selection.setBaseAndExtent [1]. According to 
 what limited documentation I could find, it works similar to 
 selection.extend. Is there any intention to standardize this, or is it made 
 obsolete by selection.extend?
