Re: Maptool Concepts: The Next UI, Look, and Feel

In 1.4 we plan to make a token a SINGLE object in the entire campaign and just have each map have a pointer plus any specific things that define it's "view" on that map such as location and a few other things. While the subject is open, I'd like to voice my preference on this. What I'd li...

Re: Maptool Concepts: The Next UI, Look, and Feel

Seems like a good time to resurrect and voice my support for a user configurable UI system. I fought with trying to get this working on my own, but my JAVA skills aren't great and it seems there are more technologies/extensions/methodologies to learn in the amount of time that IRL allows me to devot...

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

So...making something available to javascript in that fashion would involve both writing a wrapper to handle the methods that could be accessible from, say, ZoneRenderer, and then going through all the MTScript function classes and finding which functions call that method and what they return and m...

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

If I'm understanding the code properly, with the .eval(some javascript) approach, you'd have to go through the MapTool line parser to make it work anyway, so it wouldn't gain anything (I'm not entirely sure any of the MTScript functions actually exist in a Javascript-usable way). While it's possibl...

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

If I'm not mistaken, that would fall closer to "exposing the internals" than a "designed" API. Hmmm... I should clarify. My main concern is not LOSING any functionality over MTScript. inimal requirements at first, then perhaps expanding on them as we go along. This is what I was...

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

I assumed we'd start by exposing the functions exposed to MTScript already. From there I don't see a lot else that'd be required. Thoughts?

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

I would be champing at the bit to implement it and would happily spend months writing new functions but I have no clue how one integrates a script engine into Java. So I'm basically just sitting and waiting with eyes bright. I feel the EXACT same way. I think your Java-Fu is probably stronger than ...

Re: HTML Display

from what i understand JFrames only support a subset of html and css. m is a list of supported css styles. are you trying yo use any others? From a quick google, it looks like the only way to get full support is either to bundle a simple browser, or save your html to a file and call the user's defau...

Awesome, glad you're up and running! =) If you want to post a working code sample as a generic example of how to access secured website info, I'm sure the next person that comes looking would appreciate it =)

Re: DDi Compendium API and Java Classes?

Yeah, I do that. I read the two hidden files from the login form before I post them. For what it's worth (as far as I ca see) they don't ever seem to change so the code above should still work. Hmmm... if they're not changing, probably not session related. I'm willing to bet that Az and Jfrazierjr ...

If you're stronger in another language, you might try writing a quick app in that language until you understand everything that's required to pass authentication, but that's Dependant. Also, I would print out every variable every time it changes, get a cookie, print it, get html, print it, etc, it'l...

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

there are very good reasons for only allowing GM approved JavaScript to be executed. as a second thought on this, if the scripts were broken out into .js files or even .jar's, it doesn't seem that it would be that hard to have a GM approval screen. Maybe at setup time, the GM client receives a requ...

Re: Love it or Leave it: Current Macro Language

I guess my main point is that if the current MTscript parser can be improved using javascript, then great, those are bonus points. But the implementation of JS itself shouldn't depend on any changes to the current parser. As far as i understand it, the current parser takes each line entered into the...
