  1. When I use your code , it creates the following 2 files :__0.localstorage__0.localstorage-journal When I substitute your line : localStorage.test = JSON.stringify(obj);with mine : localStorage.setItem('myKey', 'myData');the code creates the following 2 files : https_plus.google.com_0.localstoragehttps_plus.google.com_0.localstorage-journal I was expecting the files created with my code to be named :myKey.localstoragemyKey.localstorage-journalWhy aren't they ? Like I said , I need to understand what KEY means ,& where does KEY show up ?Also, which file contains the KEY ?Also, which file contains the DATA ? See code below :THanks...Vernon <!DOCTYPE html><!--__0.localstorage__0.localstorage-journal--><html><title>~~~localStorage-01.html</title> <head> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8"> <title></title> <script type="text/javascript"> function init () { document.getElementById("button1").onclick = function () { var obj = new Object; obj.key = "val";' localStorage.test = JSON.stringify(obj); localStorage.setItem('myKey', 'myData'); } document.getElementById("button2").onclick = function () { var newObj = JSON.parse(localStorage.test); alert(newObj.key); } } window.onload = init; </script> </head> <body> <div> <input type="button" value="Set" id="button1"> <input type="button" value="Alert" id="button2"> </div> </body></html>

  2. Hello & Thanks ,I would like to write a myDiary script . But I am having trouble with the concept of KEY . Normally , when I think of a KEY , as applied to data ,I think of it as an Index pointing to something . Givens :TodaysDate="2013.01.27" .And "myDiary_" is a constant .Then of course there is a TextArea1 full of text . I would like to Create a Key for localStorage ,consisting of ( "myDiary_" + TodaysDate) . [ myDiary_2013.01.27 ]How would I do that with localStorage :localStorage.key=( "myDiary_" + TodaysDate) I plan to run script like this :Each time the user clicks on [New Entry Button] .script checks if there is an entry for ("myDiary_" + TodaysDate) .If ("myDiary_" + TodaysDate) is there , script loads data into Textarea1 Eventually user will click on [save/Update Button] .And new data is added to ("myDiary_" + TodaysDate) . I also notice that for every entry in :C:\Users\me\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage There are two files , for example :First the -journal : https_plus.google.com_0.localstorage-journalThen this : https_plus.google.com_0.localstorage ? What is the difference between the two ?and? How to create a multi-part KEY ? Thanks...Vernon

  3. * Hello & Thanks , Is there such a thing as 'CrossPlatform Desktop PHP' ?Normally I program in HotBasic (freeware programs) .But I am interested in crossplatform . So it seems like javascript and php are quite platform independent . Today I noticed a Php-Gtk crossplatform opensource package .I would like to write programs that run in Browsers ( IE , chrome , firefox , etc. ) . And I need to use the FileSyatem , for *.txt files . I know IE's *.hta can do this , but it is for IE only .So I am looking for the smallest Desktop footprint possible , to develop php/html/javascript programs . And more importantly , I am looking for the smallest Desktop footprint possible , to run these programs in . Any advice/direction you can give me will be greatly appreciated . Thanks...Vernon

  4. I am trying to Include an external file inside of HTML that will work as crossBrowser: I have come up with three methods of coding it, but only Chrome works for all 3 methods.Anyone know of different ways to do this ?Thanks...Vernon Including an external file inside of HTML: In the 3 methods below , for GoogleChrome, all Methods(1,2,3) work ,and all methods show search results. For InternetExplorer, all Methods(1,2,3) show something ,BUT ONLY 'Method 2' shows search results. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"><html><head><meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="content-type"><title>Minimalist Html Code</title> </head><body><br><br>Method 1<br><embed src="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt"><br><br><br>Method 2<iframe src="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt" width="800" height="800"><a href="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt">Hmm, you are using a very old browser.Click here to go directly to included content.</a></iframe><br><br><br>Method 3<object width="800" height="800" data="C:\Users\vm\Desktop\myPrograms\~PortableFreeware.com\AkelPad\~~~Scratch.txt"></object> <br> <br></body></html>

  5. Look here. The second example comes closest to what you want.
    Ah, yes, good aim.Which led me to : http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_ex_dom.asp http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_examples.asp But I am not asking 'how to open a window'. I am saying 'given the code above', (see line 30.) He uses no OPEN , and still he manages to open a window,or at least clear orig window, then writeln to print a receipt. Anyways, Thanks for the link...vmars316 almost forgot, I combine both openWindows into one, in case there are other newbies, like me reading here:<html><!-- http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_open.asp --><head><script type="text/javascript">function openWin(){myWindow=window.open('','','width=200,height=100');myWindow.document.write("<p>This is 'myWindow'</p>");myWindow.focus();}function open_win() {window.open("http://www.w3schools.com");}</script></head><body><form><input type="button" value="Open little window" onclick="openWin()" /> <input type=button value="Open URL Window" onclick="open_win()" /></form></body></html>

  7. .but the only use for something like that would be an application you're writing for yourself, not for others.
    Yes, that's exaclty what I want to do, Locally. But for all Browsers!The next best thing is ClipBoard. But I haven't yet found a way to make ClipBoard 'Browser independent'.Do you know of a way?So, I think that leaves 'Save stuff via cookies'. Which seem to be Browser independent.Am I right about that?Thanks...vmars316

  8. Far as I know, JavaScript can't write to any kind of file (except cookies). You'd need a server-side language for that.
    1) Can a server-side language run on client-side?2) If so, which ones? Browser independent?3) I guess I want to rePhrase my request:"How to write to a *.txt file, FROM a TEXTAREA and/or FROM an iFrame"? 4) Since my original request, I did find this(untested):var fso,filefso = newActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")file=fso.CreateTextFile("C:\\a.txt")file.close(); 5) But I want to write the 'whole text' FROM a TEXTAREA and/or FROM an iFrame,NOT just one line. If I have to write a line at a time, Can TEXTAREA and iFrame be accessed by index. Thanks...vmars

  9. Greetings;How to write to a *.txt file, Browser independent.I can read it into iFrame: (not sure about TextArea though) <iframe src="vmars.txt" style="float: right; width: 260px; height: 130px; margin-left: 12px; border: 1px solid black;" name="#vmarsTXT"></iframe>but how to write it back out? Into *.txt . Not into Cookies, but a real *.txt file.Thanks...vmars

  10. I am writing a pgm to generate ComboBox dropDown Menus User enters three parms: menuname<>(1) , linkname<>(1) , linkaddress<>(1) , linkname<>(2) , linkaddress<>(2) , .... menuname<>(2) , linkname<>(1) , linkaddress<>(1) , linkname<>(2) , linkaddress<>(2) , .... I would like to create an html page with three equal columns using only <div>.I would like to create an html page with three equal columns using only <table>.I would like to create an html page with three equal columns using only <css>.I would like to create an html page with three equal columns using only <xml>.In other words, 4 separate html pages. Probably there is an example of this somewhere. BTW: Is there a place on w3schools to post user created webTools(freeware)? Thanks...vmars316
