New Sample UI Posted

Monday March 22nd, 1999

We at Mozillazine have been playing around with XUL/CSS, and have created our own UI. It is similar to the old configurable chrome in mozillaclassic. To try it, simply rename the navigator.xul file to navigator.xu~, which is in the res/samples/ directory of the m3/nightly builds, download the new navigator.xul (*shift-click!*) file and place it in the same directory. This will download all the chrome and other UI elements when you load apprunner. Note, this will not change any UI except for the browser window.

In the UI, we killed the second/personal toolbar, added our own menu, changed the colors and buttons, and added some functionality. You can now load a new window, Messenger, or Composer from the bottom toolbar/component bar.

You are replying to this message

more peculiarities-

-radio buttons don't display

-forms don't work. fire-up M3 and try to use a form. uh, I noticed this on netcenter with the weird green button to log-in, but regular looking forms don't seem to work. You can enter data in scrolling fields and stuff, but M3 is unable to press a submit button! argh.

-right button menus would be nice (I know, they're coming...)especially to clone another browser window.

um. that's all I remember at the moment. more later.
