Building a WYSIWYG Editor in HTML

Two posts in one day, wow. I had to show you guys this article. I always thought building a rich textbox would be hard and I’d heard of WYSIWYG editors, but never knew what they were. I linked the two via the WordPress help button which I clicked for no apparent reason. Then I searched Google on how to build a WYSIWYG editor in the HTML/Javascript combo (no I didn’t use those exact words). What I found was this:

P.S.: WordPress keeps deleting most this blog when I am trying to save it. Annoying. Glad I have copy and paste on. If you see this it means I got it working.

P. S.S: I had to create a new entry and re-blog this.

P. S.S.S: Whoa, it’s September 28th (2006) and I realizedthe link wasn’t there as a result of it somehow being screwed up (I thought I had inserted it).  Well, I’ve edited it in now.  If you have come across this article then enjoy.

My Work Unrecognized

I’ve been searching a lot for a problem recently with this kernel tutorial.  I don’t know the problem, I compile all the assembler and c, then comes the linker and I get a problem.  It says it cannot recognize the object file.  Oh well, I’ll figure something out.  Anyways, about the title, my scripts, they are being downloaded.  I have thrity-one downloads, but almost no replies on them.  I don’t get it.  Oh well, I guess that’s just how people are.  There’s my short little rant for today folks.

Cheers,

Assembler and OS Programming, VBScript and GML, and an E-Zine

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking/working. I’ll start from the beginning. Yesterday after looking at the bootloader I decided to learn some Assembler(Asm) before moving onto actually coding my own bootloader and learning more about the kernel. It will definitely be better in the long run. I found a great tutorial, but some of it doesn’t work with NASM, so I got A86. It can generate objects so I could use it to write an OS. Not sure if I will though. Anyways, I also had a bright(wink) idea to make a script that can use the SAPI and Microsoft Agent for the wonder game making program Game Maker by Mark Overmars. So I used the built in language GML, and used it to generate VBS script files and execute them during the game since GML is a little limited with internal use. It can use DLL’s and external files well though, opening up a world of possibilities. Some people have their antivirus programs set to alert for VBScript, but there’s no virus. Check for yourself if you run the example or create one, it will create the VBS files in C:\. As for the e-zine, it’s just a hunch, but I’ve been thinking about mixing a slew of my articles, writing new ones, and maybe gathering some contributors (if they like the initial few issues), and making an e-zine on coding. I was recently inspired by showing somebody some Asm and C++ stuff on the wonderful site 64digits, they are my file hosting service of choice. It’s also a Game Maker (GM) community, so it’s not a place similar to MegaUpload or another on of those services. So check out my links, there’s only eight of them. Check ’em out. So I guess this is the end, that is until I blog again.

P.S.: This blog is tagged Open Source because the scripts are open source. Have fun. Bye,and no, I won’t edit again.

Edit: Actually, I didn’t edit the above. I just wrote it after the usual Cheers statement. So this is the first actual edit. I edited this to tell you I ran spell check. Just thought I’d let you know, because it’s polite (I also like acknowleging I made an edit).

Scripting and Audio Games

I just today saw how much you can do with VBScript. It’s pretty sweet! Check this site out. The scripting for Vista that I saw a while ago looks pretty cool, and so does Google’s gadget interface for personalized home pages, desktops, and heck everything. I’m going to have to learn me some of this stuff, especially Vista’s. It looks sweet, with great interface capabilities. It also seems pretty easy to learn, because the two gadget “scripting languages” (Vista’s and Google’s) are XML-based, and have extra features (I know Vista’s does, I’m sure Google’s does too). I also downloaded an audio game called Crazy Tennis. It seemed hard at first, but you get the hang of it. Basically the ball comes towards you getting louder and louder, and you have to pan the sound between your left and right speakers and hit the ball (it can be hit whenever, but the loudness tells you how close the ball is to being missed), if you lose the ball ten times it’s game over. If somebody like me can play it, anybody can. If your visually impaired, or just looking for something new, check out Crazy Tennis or other audio games via AudioGames. If you read my blog, comment, I’d love to hear from you. It seems I’ve lost some of my audience so let me know you’re still reading!

Cheers,
