Full Article Attached XUL Version of Most Frequently Reported Bugs Page Available

Friday December 6th, 2002

A XUL version of the Bugzilla duplicates report that doesn't require you to mess with your security settings is now available. Using a split-pane interface similiar to the one found in Mail & Newsgroups, the report not only lists the most frequently reported bugs but also supports updating the view of the data on the fly. A XUL-enabled browser is required and you'll need to grant the script enhanced privileges for it to work. The data can take a few seconds to load, so be patient if nothing seems to be happening at first. See the newsgroup message for more details.

"can we acheive the same results (client-side data manipulation) without XUL ?"

Sure. Go do it. It means you have to write a bunch of code that's already been written if you use XUL. You could write it all in DHTML but why write all the JS necessary to resort columns and other data manipulation and presentation when the XUL column sorting and other functionality is already written for you. XUL saves a lot of work and provides something that has a more "solid" feel than most DHTML I've seen.
