you should be able to submit forms with this kind of widget under either view.
in fancy view, click on an item or the arrows next to the item to promote or demote it. arrows with a horizontal bar over or under them go all the way to the top or bottom, respectively.
this still doesn't handle some things that it will need to handle before it's complete:
Some things i'm probably not going to fix:
i'd like any feedback people have to offer, especially testing it out on a variety of different browsers.
here's some info about browser compatibility (i welcome additional reports if you got 'em):
on mozilla 2:1.7.3-5 and firefox 0.9.3-5, rankle functions as i expect it to. of course, i developed it on this platform, so that's not surprising.
konqueror 4:3.2.2-1 renders almost everything fine, though it has some problems displaying the correct list numbers when things are moved around in the ordered list. This build of konqueror also doesn't seem to be able to handle the up- and down-arrow characters (⇑ and ⇓).
mozilla 1.0.0 (in debian woody) doesn't seem to propagate the values of the form widgets from one view to the other.
the latest IE 6.0 as of Sun Oct 10 13:58:15 EDT 2004 on
should have been of class rankle! but it was class null.
i got a report from enw that safari version 1.2.3
show anything in the 'fancy view'.
enw also reports that Opera 6.03 (
the one that crashes when
should have been of class rankle! but it was class undefined.
enw also sez that IE for the mac (don't know what version) doesn't let him switch views.
