Very neat! Now if it was somehow possible to preview the date before finalizing the event. Quick add sometimes makes those funny mistakes.

Not real preview. But I could give option to delete created event if it is wrong... Is that ok?

Yep. But try make it so it happens in the following flow:
1) User enters quick add
2) You get the created date and an option to approve/delete it
3) Go back to 1

Ok, so I have searched how to delete google calendar entry and found to use
Quote
xmlhttp.open("POST",del,false);
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("X-HTTP-Method-Override", "DELETE");
xmlhttp.send();
or
Quote
xmlhttp.open("DELETE",del,false);
But nothing of this works. There is an error: Access denied...
Does anybody knows how to make correct delete request using new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");?

Great stuff, czechboy! This piece of code just allowed me to switch back from Launchy to FARR  :)
I switched to Launchy mainly because of GCal integration after having used FARR for about 1,5 years, now I'm glad to be back.

And while I'm at it: kudos to Mouser for creating such a great tool! FARR just outperforms all application launchers I tried so far and is the fastest and most convenient way to access all my programs (and documents and... my Google Calendar, obviously ;)) Keep up the fantastic work!

One little idea: I don't like to have my passwords stored in plain-text on my drive so I messed around a little and found out, that Google seems to accept MD5 hashed passwords (just replaced the plain-text PW with the according MD5 hash inside the options.xml). It should not be too difficult to make the script simply hash the password before storing it to the options.xml...

Regards,
Robin

P.S. I really need to donate...  :-[

Well, there is a problem because saving of the setting manages DLL not my fscript.js . So I have no way how to change it while saving... I can only recommend you to input directly MD5 hash not the password ;)

It could be an idea for ecaradec: Is it possible to call some callback function to js instead of just saving it, when user hits OK, while saving settings? Another thing I would like to see is a possibility for textarea, select, option etc. while creating advanced setting of a plugin.

EDIT: I have tried to interchange MD5 hash directly to my xml file but Google does not seam to accept it... I will try to google it out ;)

EDIT2: Here http://code.google.c...html#AuthClientLogin you can read Passwd The user's password.... Nothing mentioned about MD5 hash :( So I doubt it is possible.

Ok, sorry for prematurely declaring this as working... I assumed that explicitly logging off from GMail/GCal would ensure the FARR Gcal Quick Add would have to re-authenticate as well, but obviously I was mistaken.

Well then ...any further ideas? :)

Robin: if google would accept the hash of the password, storing the hash or the password itself in clear text would be almost the same, not offering much security improvement ;)

czechboy: can't javascript encrypt a text file? You could store the login details encrypted with a password only you (and your scripts) would know. This wouldn't prevent anyone with a bit more knowledge from discovering the passwords but would offer some confort for some ;)

As you have just said... from my point of view it would be useless, but CPU consumer :) I am not seasoned javascript coder but I think that simple js debugging could discover it :huh:

Nice work czechboy. You have been a resouce for the FARR community recently. Keep it up :)

Well, I have free after school examination period (I study Building structures at CVUT in Prague), so that is why I am so active... but another semester is coming soon :(

I've been trying to use this plugin but every try ends up with "Please wait" as the result. Of course I wait but after 5 minutes I realize it isn't going to work. I have input my email/password. Is there something I'm missing?

Strange. :( Try to download a new version and tell me what it displays to you. I have added some error messages so we can track a little bit an error. ;)

For some reason when I add an event with this plugin it shows up on Gcal one hour off. For example, if I type:
Code: [Select]
gc "test event on 1 jun at 2:30 pm" it will show up on Gcal as starting at 3:30.

The preview window in FARR shows it as:
Code: [Select]
Title: test event
From: 2008-06-01T14:30:00.000-06:00
To: 2008-06-01T15:30:00.000-06:00

If I add the same event string directly into Gcal it shows up at the correct time.

Bump.

I'd really like to figure this out. Why does everything get put an hour off? All my timezone info is correct on the local pc and Google Calendar. What is causing this?

I think it must be something with google calendar, because as you can see:
From: 2008-06-01T14:30:00.000-06:00
google recognizes it correctly...
Does this:

work for you?

I don't know, the plugin isn't compatible with FF 3. I do notice that the -06:00 offset (Central Time) is the same on my computer and on Google Calendar's settings.
