Java newbies should take a look at it. 2005-01-21 8:18 pm The link doesn’t work in Konqueror nor Firefox (on SuSE 9.2). Konqueror shows nothing. Firefox shows a menu and a scrollable empty window. But no flash in either. Flash works on other pages in both. 2005-01-21 8:34 pm it does’nt work in konquer and only half screen in firefox, but works fine in opera. i’m using suse 9.2 2005-01-21 9:06 pm i think this is a flash-linux issue, it works fine in windows- firefox 1 2005-01-21 9:49 pm it’s the old getBytesLoaded() actionscript bug, this function is used mostly on preloaders, but it borks on most browsers other then IE. 2005-01-21 10:03 pm You’re saying actionscript bug. I googled it – it’s flash language? Then how come it works in Opera but not Konqueror and FireFox – they share the same flash plugin? 2005-01-21 10:19 pm I was just told that the site “sucks” but that it also works in Konqueror if the browser identification is changed to Mozilla 1.6. 2005-01-21 10:22 pm It doesn’t work for me (opera 8 beta), works on firefox and IE http://guti.bitacoras.com/index.php?entry=entry050104-234247 is’s in spanish but you’ll understand, if not: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&c2coff=1&q=getBytes… 2005-01-21 11:09 pm > I was just told […] that it also works in Konqueror if the > browser identification is changed to Mozilla 1.6. I can confirm that, I just finished watching it in Konqi 3.3.1. It only worked after changing the browser identification. 2005-01-22 12:29 am works fine in windows and firefox 2005-01-22 8:35 am That was a great tutorial. Very well done. 2005-01-22 3:33 pm > it also works in Konqueror if the browser identification is >changed to Mozilla 1.6. now it also works here – konqueror 3.3.2 2005-01-22 11:05 pm http://javalobby.com/eps/galbraith-swing-2/ It covers * How to make Swing apps look good using alternate look and feels, with links to several sites * Helper classes such as Packer that make it astoundlingly easy to use GridBagLayout in code * The SwiXML project, allowing you to specify Swing GUIs in XML (like XAML basically), cutting down code even further. 2005-01-23 6:21 am There is Spin, which is on the Author’s original presentation, but was omitted because he doesn’t like its mechanism. 2005-01-23 7:54 am Great article. But can’t understand the difference about Foxtrot and Spin. 2005-01-23 7:08 pm Worked for me by switching the UAgent string to Netscape 4.8 (brrr) on Windows XP (brrr).
