Plug-in Scripts

 [1/6] from: hijim:pronet at: 12-Sep-2001 18:36

Those plug-in scripts are great! They look just like rebol scripts with an html file name extension. Is that true? I put a script at: but it comes up as text with all white space gone. looks better, but the script doesn't run. How do I post a script so it will run on the plug-in like the ones on ? Should it be embedded like a java script program? It sure doesn't look like the rebol site does it that way. Thanks, Jim

Hello Jim plugin only works in explorer 5.0 or < otherwise you just see a textversion of the script

The plugin is launched if there is an <EMBED> tag on the page that points to a REBOL script. Go to one of the examples and view the page source. You will see that at the bottom, there is something like: <EMBED SRC="" TYPE="text/x-rebol-plugin" HEIGHT="0" WIDTH="0"> at the bottom of the page. This is what gets the plugin running. The pages simply show the script so that yo ucan see what it is that is running. The actual code is fetched from the link into the script library. The <EMBED> tag can be anywhere on the page, can point to any file, but does require that the TYPE be set to text/x-rebol-plugin for it to work. Sterling

Try: <EMBED SRC= TYPE="text/x-rebol-plugin" HEIGHT="0" WIDTH="0"> in the HTML of the page to be shown while the rebol plug-in works. Andrew Martin ICQ: 26227169

Thanks Andrew -- I'll be able to do this as a file, but unfortunately Geocities won't let me post a .r file or an .exe file. Maybe my isp will let me do it. I can understand them not wanting to allow potentially dangerous program files on their server. Rebol always asks if it's ok to print a file on the printer, but it doesn't ask if it's ok to delete a file; it just deletes it. You have to trust the script you open, don't you?
