can't create standalone with javascript jit.window - help!


    Feb 01 2006 | 2:07 am
    If I make a patch that contains a javascript with this single line:
    var window = new JitterObject("jit.window","myWindow");
    and save it, the window is created, and everything is just fine.
    But then when I go to build a standalone application, I get these error messages:
    ? error: patcher: missing arguments for message "close" ? error: jit.window: No such object ? error: jsjitterobject_Constructor: null class pointer jit_window

      Did you include jitlib in the collective editor?

      Yes, I included all the files mentioned in "Appendix D: Building Standalone Applications with Jitter", for both jitter + javascript.
      I've built standalones successfully before; it seems to be the specific inclusion of a javascript-instantiated jit.window that causes the errors.

      You also need to include jit.window and all objects referenced in your javascript file. Otherwise the class is not present to be instantiated. Patchers know which objects they contain and add them to the collective for you, but javascript files do not.

      Got it. Thanks Joshua - didn't realize that, but it certainly makes sense.

      It would suggest that you need to upload a more recent version of the documentation, I think.

      maybe I'm missing something fundamental here but I've just downloaded all the jitter documentation for mac and there is no Appendix D to be found? Casey

      I just looked at my docs. I have an appendix D. The create date on the file is 9/20/05. What are you downloading from the C74 site?

      I just donwloaded from
      jitter 1.5 Jitter documentation for MAc
      and
      jitter 1 Jitter documentation for Mac
      no appendix D in either of these? Casey

      So did I and you're right that it isn't in there. Looks like the jit1.5 documentation download for mac needs to be updated.

      Thanks Wes Great it is good to know I'm not crazy, any Idea when the complete documentation will be available, or where I could get appendix D? Casey

      The latest Jitter Installer.

      Yes. Thank you, Joshua. Your answer with respect to including all of the objects created by the javascript file solved my standalone issues as well, 7 years on! Once again, the forum search box has proven to be my friend... :~)
