dial vs. jsui_360dial.js

November 7, 2007 | 3:46 pm

Hi. Anyone here know if/how its possible to get the jsui_360dial.js
behave like [dial] where the mouse cursor gets hidden and there is no
stopping because hitting the edge of the screen.

#P window setfont "Sans Serif" 9.;
#P flonum 256 189 35 9 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 221 221 221 222 222 222 0 0 0;
#P number 185 189 35 9 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 221 221 221 222 222 222 0 0 0;
#P user jsui 256 94 64 64 1 0 0 jsui_360dial.js;
#P user dial 185 93 49 49 100 1 0 0 95 359 1 1. 170 170 170 221 221 221
120 120 120 225 225 225 0 0 0 0 0 0;
#P connect 1 0 3 0;
#P connect 0 0 2 0;
#P window clipboard copycount 4;

All best,
Jakob

It’s possible, but you’ll have to modify how jsui_360dial.js is
implemented. As an example you can have a look to my ej.numbox, which
shows that behavior (endless, hidden pointer).

Here’s a quick fix. Altered the ondrag function in the js file and added some business in max land.

best,
Zachary

One small improvement. Now the cursor reappears at the same point as it disappears (like in the dial object)

Thanks Emmanuel and Zachary.
I’ll see if I can implement the solution into the javascript.

Thanks to the suggestions by Emmanuel and Zachary i managed to modify
the jsui_360dial.js and give it the endless dial behavior. Zip file attached.

There’s a bug in the forum code that prevents attachments attached to
list posts from making it onto the forum. This bug has been fixed
several times, but keeps re-appearing. I’ve talked to the FudForum devs
about this, and they’re suggesting that we update our forum install.
Since our forum code is heavily customized in some areas (mostly having
to do with the mailing list integration, but also many display tweaks)
this is not as easy it sounds.

In the meantime, as a big a pain as it might seem, it’s recommended that
you use the forum to post attachments, as those will both make it to the
forum and the list without issue.

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter,

Very nice!

Hello.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but would someone be able to tell me how to set attributes such as min, max and range for the jsui_360dial? The default is set as 0-1 but I’m not sure how to change it. For instance, how would I change it so the output values would be 0-360?

Many thanks.

scale or zmap are great objects too Wink Otherwise the attached js should do the trick… Not really tested though.

Thanks Emmanuel. Much appreciated.
