Ability to copy geshi formatted code text.. help me test?
« on: May 24, 2009, 10:52:38 PM »
Can anyone help me test the new ability to copy the text of geshi syntax highlighted text?

Normal attempts to select and copy geshi syntax highlighted text results in garbage that is impossible to reuse outside the forum.

I've added a new copy/print link at the top of geshi syntax highlighted code which should pop up a plain text window to copy from -- let's see if it works -- let me know.

here is a SAMPLE CODE BLOCK to test out the copy function on:
Code: PHP
  1.         $entries = array();
  2.         $total_t = 0;
  3.         $total_s = 0;
  4.         foreach ($cache_hits as $h)
  5.                 {
  6.                 $entries[] = $h['d'] . ' ' . $h['k'] . ': ' . comma_format($h['t'], 5) . ' - ' . $h['s'] . ' bytes';
  7.                 $total_t += $h['t'];
  8.                 $total_s += $h['s'];
  9.                 }
  10.

note: you may have to do a ctrl+refresh of the page in order to force the forum to reload the latest javascript code on the site instead of using cache.

It seems to work fine doing paste in Notepad++, just the formating is lost; is this what you wanted to test?

   1.
      $entries = array();
   2.
      $total_t = 0;
   3.
      $total_s = 0;
   4.
      foreach ($cache_hits as $h)
   5.
      {
   6.
      $entries[] = $h['d'] . ' ' . $h['k'] . ': ' . comma_format($h['t'], 5) . ' - ' . $h['s'] . ' bytes';
   7.
      $total_t += $h['t'];
   8.
      $total_s += $h['s'];
   9.
      }

those messed up numbers demonstrate the problem with normal select and copy.
try clicking on the link that says "[copy or print]" to see a new window popup with clean plain text you can copy properly -- that's the new thing.

It's better:

$entries = array();
   $total_t = 0;
   $total_s = 0;
   foreach ($cache_hits as $h)
      {
      $entries[] = $h['d'] . ' ' . $h['k'] . ': ' . comma_format($h['t'], 5) . ' - ' . $h['s'] . ' bytes';
      $total_t += $h['t'];
      $total_s += $h['s'];
      }

ok should be working again.. really goes to show you that not even what you think is the simplest trivial change should ever be uploaded and assumed to work without testing.  :-[

It's just fine over here too, also tried the 'wrong' copy, by selecting the forum text, and that worked as bad as argv showed.

Thnx

I am not sure it's the same feature but take a look here:
http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=17398.0

If you click on copy or print link in skrommel's code, popup with plain text will appear but backslashes are missing!

It took me a while to figure out why his code is not working for me until I've realized what is wrong.

P.S. Tested under Opera only.

no, you still have to manually ctrl+A and copy to clipboard.. the main functionality of the new feature is to remove the formatting codes and the line numbers.

Will you implement the copy code function?
