The JavaScript Verifier


This tool saved me today. I had a piece of java script code that referenced some form variables. the code was okay on Firefox but not on IE. The problem was simply because the form variable (input type=text name=var) was called "var" which is a reserved word in JS :p

Palomino: glad u liked it ;))


Bashar: it is!! actually the error on IE was
1- Unexpected identifier.
and when i click on any text field the error is ==>
2- Object expected.

in Jslint the error was simply var is a keyword :p

some websites recommend web visual developer

but i only had this small piece of code embedded in pl/sql code .. so i needed something light and fast ...


and you're most welcome :)

i'm so not into hardware :p


"stuff that make you wana pull your hair out ;P"

so true :p

Bashar said...

You're working on PL/SQL...

Please tell me you don't generate HTML content through PL/SQL, I've seen such implementation, it's disastrous!

Also, please tell me its not the same place :)

Bashar said...

Ohh and to jump in between, while I love to be more expert in hardware, it's software where I exhale.

Nemo said...

lool yes i do ;(
thats why im trying to learn APEX, future apps will all be developed in APEX (hopefully)


i don't know which place are you talking about? :p

Bashar said...

I'm not a fan of Oracle development really. Oracle is quite solid as a DB, and I prefer to use web development frameworks on top of it.

Place... some place to do with registration :P

Bashar said...

That APEX looks good on paper for quick internal stuff. Dunno how convenient for outside users :)

Nemo said...

Oracle is a "DB"
oracle development? "forms"? w333

I tried JDBC but its so slow ..

althu pl/sql is stupid but its so fast!!! pl/sql is highly recommended if ur app does access the DB a lot


about the place yes :p
