Firebug is released as v1.0 beta2

Firebug is a marvelous tool to help in development with Bindows. As it is closing in on the full 1.0 release there are some truly impressive features included such as profiling of javascript code and monitoring of network activity.

There is a special version which works in IE, Firefox and Opera called Firefox Lite which opens up for easy debugging in those platforms also.

It is also possible to edit and visualize CSS and HTML-information live in the browser to tailor different properties and much much more…

Unfortunately the Firebug debugger is not (yet?) capable of showing javascript code which is loaded dynamically using the XMLHttpRequest. All references are made to the included script which has loaded the script.

Go check it out at http://www.getfirebug.com and support the guy who is making this very useful tool!

A peek into the Bindows future… Bindows Vector Graphics (BVG)4

Linkdemo Screenshot

Working with the Bindows product has been an exciting trip so far. With the introduction of SVG-support in Firefox 1.5 we were given the opportunity to draw vector graphics in both Internet Explorer (VML) and Firefox (SVG).

Abhinav Pobbati started working on a sort of graphing tool for a customer and I recently got the opportunity to help him further develop the concept. Now, we have an early demonstration of this simple graph tool which renders its graphics using VML in Internet Explorer and SVG in Firefox, all within the Bindows framework.

The demonstration contains several elements which can be dragged around on the screen. The elements are linked using lines which can be right clicked to show a context menu. Everything with a beautiful pastel coloured background! :)

Try it out!

We plan to name this feature Bindows Vector Graphics (BVG) and we would love to get any comments and suggestions you may have.
