    Still haven't been able to solve the problem as described below by digitaldon37.

    If anyone could lend a hand it would be appreciated.
    This program is really coming together very well but a wiki that can not build a contents menu and link to items further on in the page is a little disappointing.

    section linking thought

    I'm stumbling through this trying to figure out a way to accomplish this. One idea that I'm researching is whether we can add any javascript code to the HTML string to either hide the preceding text or navigate to the line that we want displayed.

    Any help from a real programmer (those who can program - program. Those who can't - are project managers like me) would be appreciated. Don

    [update] found some javascript and did this little hack. Haven't tried it on the PDA yet. You need the "blank.jpg" file also
    [update#2] doesn't work the same on my PDA :(

    update#3 (8/22/08) - IE Mobile doesn't support a lot of the DOM objects that I need to implement anchors. But it does support window scrolling:

    window .scrollTo (x-coord,y-coord)

    Redisplays the document.with the provided coordinates being the upper left corner of the display. There 
    is no returned value.

    is location of the pixel on the horizontal axis of the document that is to be in the upper left of the display.

    is location of the pixel on the virtical axis of the document that is to be in the upper left of the display.
    I just have to figure out a way determine location coordinates of an anchor. I'm uploading a mini javascript tester and sample file if anyone is interested. You put the html & jscript in a text file

    [update #4] scrollTo method doesn't seem to work on the PDA. What does work is adding a form element and setting focus to that when it loads. And the only ones that work on the PDA are ones that take input. So I've uploaded a new javascript test file to demonstrate.

    Gday All,
    I'm going away for a couple of days & might not get a chance to see whats happening, so I thought I'd put my latest code up. It just has a few minor bug fixes in the bladeparser.

    Maybe when I get back the fairies will have the linking to page section bug fixed. LOL

    work in progress - section linking (anchor)

    Version .591 (work in progress) modified:

    1. ParseBladeWiki - added code to translate "[#section]" to "currentpage#section" so that [#section], [page#section], [[page#section][Section Link on Page]]" all have valid links
    2. Parse - added stub to intercept section links. To do: insert javascript code so that when assigned to web browser it will navigate to that section

    I will update this reply with latest code revisions

    section linking


    1. New library: stringsEx (thanks to agraham for the library)
    2. Added initialization of strings library in App_Start
    3. Modified Parse subroutine to insert javascript and form data so that section jump works

    Note: I would consider this a work in progress - I haven't found a way to hide the form controls and still get the javascript to work. This is a hack.

    1. wiki.sbp
    2. testsection.txt (start test here)
    3. test.txt

    Att: Digitaldon37
    It may be that java script is not the solution. When I run the code you sent I get a message:
    On searching the web I find that Java script is disabled. And it would appear that I can not enable it.
    I'm running WM6

    Did it run for you?
    What WM version are you using?

    I did get it to work better on the desktop and without showing the checkbox.

    To do this change your java script to:
    Then add this to the css file:
    Its all sad :(

    Temp Html files?

    Att: Digitaldon37 and anyone else prepared to help.

    Section linking the way we are doing it is just no good.

    My testing shows that if you load the file and display it using:
    1. web.DocumentText section links work on the pc but not the ppc.
    2. web.url and type in the address for the html file it works perfectly on both machines.
    My thinking at the moment is to write a temp.html file to maybe mydocuments on the ppc (not the storage card as this would cause undue waer and power consumption). Load this file using web.url. We still then need to intercept the clicks and replace the temp.html as required.

    What do you think?

    See examples attached. (modified webrowser)

    Ok here is a working test :sign0060: I'm excited

    Don I ripped some of the navigating code to pieces and came up with this.
    This is stripped down & some features need to be put back in but it bloody works

    Create a homepage and link it to this test.txt file and enjoy. (hope my excitement is not premature).

    :sign0161: whilst all works we now have the original problem. Whilst pages load and display perfectly i amd getting the error The address is not valid. check the address and try again.

    Ok this works fine on the ppc. Links, Descriptive Links and Section Links are all good. But creates an endless loop on the pc. Go figure?

    I've been looking at this code so long I need a break. For some reason on the pc: when you click on a link it goes into and endless loop with subs "parse", "web_navigating" and "RefreshWeb". However this does not happen on the ppc.

    I have attached a complete zip file & would love someone else to take a look at these 3 subs.

    I think the problem is that you are effectively setting web.URL in the navigating event which then causes another navigating event and then you set web.URL again ..... I've no idea why it works on the ppc but maybe the WebBrowser there checks for re-entrancy before it raises the navigating event

    You could try setting a global and checking it in the navigating event. Depending upon exactly what you need you may need slightly different logic
    InNavigating = false ' in globals


    Sub web_navigating
    If InNavigating then
          InNavigating = 
    End If
       InNavigating = 
    End Sub

    It Works

    Yes it works :sign0060:

    PPPCWiki now works on both the PC and the PPC.

    I have put the code here as I am not quite ready for the next full release.
    Anyone following this program please let me know if you have any problems with the links.

    Hi - this is a nice project that you are working on. Good work :sign0188:

    I noted that in your wish-list, you wanted a spelling-checker. Well, I am currently writing a spelling-checker that will also suggest corrections for erroneous words. I have implemented in my spelling-checker also the usage of Soundex (a phonetic algorithm) and the Levenshtein distance (edit distance).

    I will post in a day or two my sample application along with source-code,an english dictionary and the library I created. If you like it, you can freely use it to add a spelling-checker in your project.

    For further information :
    -about Soundex, pls check out:
    Soundex - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    -about Levenshtein distance, please see:
    Levenshtein distance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Sounds interesting. I will look on with interest.

    Regex to speed things up

    I could really use some help from someone who knows how to create regular expressions.

    At the moment the sub parseBlade is far too slow. I am hoping using regex will help speed things up.
    I have been able to create the following but I am really struggling here. Both with implementing regex and with understanding it.

    Attached is a picture of my code so far (its in a picture because some of the entity codes get converted to their actual characters when displayed here, and you really need to see them)

    Anyone who can help and wishes to download all my code before I started adding regex can download from posts 74 & 76 Alternatley PM me and i'll send you my current code.
