Re: Internet Explorer Web Development Comments and questions about the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar

Hi John,

We're using IE embedded in our MFC application and I was wondering how I can enable the IE Developer Toolbar.

Is it as easy as calling IWebBrowser2 :: ShowBrowserBar() If so, what is the class identifier of for the developer toolbar

Thanks in advance!

After i install latest version of IEDevTB, IE is "hangs" for a 5-10sec after each request... (WinXP SP2 + MSIE 7 + NOD32)

Where I can download previous version of DevTB

This is a great tool but a major bug still remains in this release which makes it unusable. I am forced to revert to Beta 2 which is the only version which doesn't have this problem.

I refer you to several comments in the Beta 3 release discussion both below and on the Channel 9 Wiki.

http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2007/01/09/ie-developer-toolbar-beta-3-now-available.aspx

On many pages (I mean most) a script error occurs as follows:

Object doesn't support this property or method

The code breaks on the following line in the ParseDoc function.

Code Snippet
collSelectors.item(i).SetQuirksMode(true);

I am not sure but I think this has something to do with the dtd used in the doctype of the page. I am using Win XP SP2 and IE7

Yes, I am also experiencing the same problem. Unfortunately this occurs on every web page I open.

WinXP SP2, IE7

I've been unable to install either beta 3 or v1.0 on my work PC. The install always hangs about 99% complete and msiexec.exe consumes 100% of the CPU.

Dan,

Do you still have a copy of beta 2 I'd love to revert back to that version, but haven't been able to locate the install file anywhere. If you can help, please let me know (rdavies [at] ci.portland.or.us)

I'm having this problem as well. I'm using Windows XP Pro, SP2, and IE 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Danila,

Previous versions of the Dev Toolbar are no longer available for download.

I'd like to investigate this more to hopefully find the problem. When exactly does IE hang Is it when you open a new tab, when you click a link, or something else

And as you may have already tried, you can isolate the problem to make sure it's the Dev Toolbar by going to Tools->Manage Add-ons->'Enable or Disable Add-ons...' and then disabling 'IE Developer Toolbar' and 'IE Developer Toolbar BHO'. That's easier than uninstalling and reinstalling when trying to track down the problem.

Thanks.

John

Hi Richard,

To try and find out why setup keeps failing, run it once with logging enabled. You'll have to run msiexec directly from a command line. Here are the steps:

  1. Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory with the Dev Toolbar MSI.
  2. Run this command: msiexec /i IEDevToolBarSetup.msi /log devtoolbar.log

You should then have devtoolbar.log in the same directory.

Thanks.

John

DanSwift, and other people running into the ParseDoc/SetQuirksMode issue...

We have identified the root cause of this issue; the unknown factor is why the script error is being exposed outside of the developer toolbar itself. The script in question is not executing as part of a web page, so it shouldn't be being exposed to script debuggers.

When you say "the code breaks on the following line", is that breaking into Visual Studio, or some other script debugging tool What version (VS 2005, 2003, Visual Web Developer Express, etc.)

Personally, I've tried Visual Studio 2005, 2003, and VWDE and have not been able to repro seeing the error. As much info as you can provide would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Jonathan

Issue One: I have version 1.00.2188.00 installed in IE7 on Windows XP (and have removed previous beta version). It does not show up in Tools>Toolbars>

Hoping to get back to Issue 2: It showed up there when I had the Beta version(s) but with the beta I had this problem: I'd turn on the toolbar (Tools>Toolbars>Developer Toolbar) and it would show up underneath the address bar up top. Sweet. But when I close the browser and reopen it the toolbar is no longer showed upagain. It just wouldn't stay active. I have to got through the Tools>Toolbars>Developer Toolbar routine every time I want to use it. Boo. How do I get it to stay put A registry tweak perhaps Mystical incantations

Cheers,

Skye

In IE6 (XP SP2), when I open "View / Source / Original" in the Developer Toolbar, the "Edit / Find" command (or Ctrl+F) doesn't do anything. No find-dialogue is displayed. How can I fix this The problem exists in the same way on two different computers running IE6. On a third computer running IE7 all works fine.

I've enjoyed the development of IEDevTB, but the TRW has three major issues, one of which is a showstopper. I was going to say two glitches, but found a third as a typed this note. If you turn on the tool while in a page, it clears the page.... which I just did while typeing this note, losing everything I typed.

Now back to the first two issues:

1) Showstopper: I understand that the ability to validate local HTML was deliberately killed, but that sends me back to Firefox as my "test first here" choice. All our pages are password validated (.net security). So I either have to turn that off for the site (a major hassle, and bigger exposure if I want to test over the net on remote servers), or I have to use local html. I'm sure MS won't reconsider ... never does... but just understand that the validate feature for many of us is the beginning point... until the html validates, we don't go any further, so the rest of the tools aren't useful.

2) I can't seem to actually turn on a toolbar that stays at the top of the browser. I can only open the whole dom inspection window (pinned or unpinned) to get at the rest of the tools Have the same issue in IE6 and IE7. What gives Why can't I put the toolbar back on my toolbar line





Re: Internet Explorer Web Development Comments and questions about the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar

Suddenly Whenever I started IE, I started getting the message "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'IEDevToolbarSetup.msi' in the box below"

It's pointing to my desktop, where the package is located still, but I don't really understand why it's looking for the installation package... I tried uninstalling and installing the newest version, but I get the same message.

Have any clue what's going on

Thanks!
