When you click view source a new tab opens and the page is loaded all over again.
Maybe there is a very valid reason for this. But I cant find one. To me this can even be problem.
- If you pass values via POST you cant get the results as Chrome does not re-POST it just issues a new request using GET and a new session. (I found a couple “Notice: Undefined variable” on some of my code, but this was my problem as I wasnt doing proper verifications) But anyway you never get the POST values and see the source for your page.
- If you have a counter or random dinamic content you will never get to see exactly what you get on the rendered html you have on the initial tab.
A work around is to use “inspect element” but its not the same. Its great for some things but its not the same.
If someone finds a valid reason for this “view source” behaviour I would love to know.
I just order two tickets to http://www.ux-lx.com/
I am really happy that this kind of events happen in Portugal as it gives us (Portuguese developers) a chance to learn and share experiences and knowledge.
UPDATE: minutes after I emailed about this I received a friendly response and the issue bellow was solved. Great job.
I am not one to normally nag and complain about stuff, but for a user experience professionals conference this menu issue made me laugh:
P.S. – Sorry about this guys at http://www.ideias-imagens.com/ but just couldnt resist.
This came with a “perfect” SPL 1.33.0014.
After a few hours searching I ended up using the goldcard method to flash it up.
I followed http://vivekgolecha.blogspot.com/2009/08/as-promised-i-said-i-would-come-up-with.html but with some changes.
I 1. no need to download the fastboot as it comes by default with the new sdk
II 1. I used a sandisk 1gb without a problem.
II 12. i quick formated the sd card to fat32 on my computer on this step (not sure if it was needed)
II 13. choose the “removable disk” from the bottom option and NOT the top eg:”Untitled Disk (F:)” – I almost gave up here. So simple and was my main problem.
III 1. Used “ROM v2.53.707.2 (Engineerings SPL v1.33.2010)” as you cannot downgrade spl for me this was the only option
III 29. My sdcard was causing some media error. I took it out and without it no problem. I ended up formating it using the phone and it re-started working fine.
And thats all you need to change spl.
After that I followed this tutorial http://forum.pplware.com/showthread.php?tid=4043&page=1 (Portuguese) my recovery page looked and gave me some diferent options, but it was common sense.
Its working fine. Faster and without any errors or bugs. so far 🙂
