Pinned topic Code Formatting in Posts

‏2010-01-22T19:43:18Z |

When Posting, will folks please display DXL code inside a format box. Do that by surrounding your code with the word 'code' which is itself surrounded by open and closing braces {}. Looks like {co de} without the space.
 

for lnk in o->"*" do
{  oTarget = target(lnk)
   if (null oTarget) read(fullName(target i), false, true)
   bla bla bla
}


looks a lot better than this:
for lnk in o->"*" do
{ oTarget = target(lnk)
if (null oTarget) read(fullName(target i), false, true)
bla bla bla
}

    I am going to try to do as Louie suggests using Safari on Windows.
     

    //here is my code
    ack "This worked."
    

     


    I believe I've tried this before and had problems...but if it works I'll be more diligent about it in the future.

    In Safari, I can't preview. I can only post. Here goes....

    Safari?

    Lately, the preview button has been gone for me also.

    I figured out the lost 'preview' button. When I use 'http://www.bla.bla.bla' I don't get the option, but when I use 'secured' httpS: 'https:/www.bla.bla.bla' it works. Changed the properties in my Favorites, life is good.

    Sometimes I have to show blocked content; very annoying.

    Having to manually add the "s" to http just see the preview tab is completely weird. This is a bug - IBM needs to fix it - are there any budding IBM people out there that can confirm that this is being looked at?

    You only need to add 's' to the initial favorite. The clicked links conform to that.

    For the DXL forum, change:
        http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=1527&start=0
    to:
        https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=1527&start=0
    

     


    I'm getting security certificate errors now, not sure what to think about that. I notice today I no longer see the 'rich text' tab.

    {rant} I can't say that I am the biggest fan of developerWorks. The site is slow for me and feels old and clunky. Thought at least its not as bad as the shamefully atrocious HP forums and website.

    The frustrating thing with devWorks is that sometimes I see a legend key on the right hand side with all the useful tags explained. But I don't know where the legend is now. It certainly isn't here while I type this.

    Try surrounding your Rants with {rant}, then other folks can delete it.
