Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Description

This is an important step towards implementing a 'Content Security Policy' (#1712).

All in-page onclick, onmouse and other event handlers must be moved out to external javascript files. The events should be attached to the controls by addEventListener calls.

Considering that a lot of the in-page scripts are dynamically generated with code that depend on request parameters, user settings, etc. this move is not trivial in all cases. One idea is to use data-* attributes (introduced by HTML5, see for example http://html5doctor.com/html5-custom-data-attributes/) to hold data that is needed by the scripts. In most cases simple string values are enough. For more complex data structures we could use JSON.

(In [6155]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Tested on the BASE->Preferences page. All event handlers (except from taglibs) that are defined on that page should now be attached programmatically instead.

Added 'main-2.js' to hold all new stuff. Will eventually try to phase out the older javascript files as much as possible.

Added support for <dynamic-attributes> to taglibs. Implemented in the <button> taglib. The main reason is to be able to include 'data-*' attributes that are needed by the scripts.

Added support for setting 'id' attribute on the <html> tag.

(In [6157]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Fixed for all help icons.

comment:5 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6159]) References #1729 and #1730.

Started to work on this for the tabcontrol taglib. Basic tab switching and form validation should work, but not setting a custom 'switchFunction' or activation callback. To use the new features, use the 'tabcontrol-2.js' instead of 'tabcontrol.js'. Remove all explict callback methods in the tags and add them with, for example, TabControl.addTabValidator() calls.

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6160]) References #1729 and #1730.

  • Redesigned 'onload' event handler functionality. There are now 3 levels to add page initialization code which gives better control of the calling order: Doc.addElementInitializer(), Doc.onLoad() and Doc.addFinalizer()

  • Implemented support for custom tab switch function in the tab control taglib. Use TabControl?.setSwitchFunction().

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6161]) References #1729 and #1730.

  • Added support for 'onactivate' event handlers in the tab control taglib.

  • Changed custom event names to use 'base-' as prefix to avoid clashes ('activate' is used by IE), so the new names are 'base-activate' and 'base-validate'

  • Added support for remembering last active tab in a tab control.

comment:8 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6162]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

All onsubmit event handlers on <form> elements have been removed and replaced addEventListener() calls.

comment:9 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6164]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Removed all 'onerror' event handlers for images. No replacement. Added @deprecated markers to implementations of @deprecated interface methods.

comment:10 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6166]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

  • Fixed for the user settings dialog and the 'Reset list settings' dialog.
  • Added a 'zoom' taglib which should make it easier to include the 'zoom' icon for textarea fields.
  • Added new javascript function in main-2 for opening zoom dialog and calendar dialog

comment:11 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6167]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Fixed the Administrate -> Server settings and Broadcast message pages.

comment:13 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6170]) References #1729 and #1730.

Fixed calendar popup.

comment:14 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6171]) References #1729 and #1730.

Fixed the zoom popup except toolbar buttons and menu items since there is no support for it yet in the taglibs.

comment:15 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6172]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Fixed an issue with opening help for dialogs that still use the old tabcontrol code.

comment:16 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6177]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Fixed on the About, Forgot password, Get account and Broadcast message pages. Not much to do, there is only a single 'Close' button on those pages.

comment:17 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6180]) References #1729 and #1730.

Fixed on the View -> Home page.

comment:18 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6181]) References #1729 and #1730.

Fixed on some more common pages:

  • View help
  • Manage list presets
  • View change history
  • Set owner of items

comment:19 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6182]) References #1729 and #1730.

Started to work with the <table> taglib. So far the following have been fixed:

  • The page navigator
  • The 'view/preset' dialog box
  • Sorting and filtering on most column types (except enumerations)

As a consequence of the above, the presetOnChange() function on most list pages have been removed and the configureColumns() have been simplified.

comment:20 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6183]) References #1729 and #1730.

More fixes for the <table> taglib.

  • Use JSON as a data-* attribute to define columns instead of javascript.
  • Add support for dynamic attributes to several more tags
  • Re-factored the 'view/presets' handling and fixed the warning icons about filters

comment:21 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6184]) References #1729 and #1730.

The multi-select list should now be working and use JSON for configuration instead of dynamically created javascript. The implementation details have changed a bit and moved from main.js to main-2.js. Similar changes are needed for the smart-enum lists.

comment:22 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6185]) References #1729 and #1730.

Got rid of the last multi-select control in experiment explorer. Removed the MultiOptions class in main.js.

comment:26 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6190]) References #1729 and #1730.

The smart-enum list should now be working and use JSON for configuration instead of dynamically created javascript. The implementation details have changed a bit and moved from main.js to main-2.js.

comment:27 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6192]) References #1729 and #1730.

Refactored the code for displaying a popup message when loading a page. The message should now be stored as a session setting instead: sc.setSessionSetting("alert-message", message). The added benefit is that the message is only displayed once and is not re-displayed if the page is reloaded.

Removed onunload, onkeypress and attributes from the <base:body> tag. Added support for dynamic attributes instead.

comment:28 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6194]) References #1729 and #1730.

Fixed for frameset resizing code in three places: file manager, item overview and extensions overview.

comment:29 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6195]) References #1729 and #1730.

Fixed for several functions in the 'Item overview' feature. The joust tree outline and a few other minor places remains.

Fixed for all hideable sections.

comment:31 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6197]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Fixed for the "edit annotations" tab.

comment:36 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

comment:39 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6216]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Replaces all 'Calendar' buttons with a new tag: <base:calendar />. The calendar popup now also uses the default date/time format for the logged in used, so there is no need to send that every time.

comment:40 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6217]) References #1730: Move in-page onEvent attributes to external *.js files

Got rid of 'clazz' and 'requiredClazz' string constatns used in several JSP scripts. Better to specify class="" directly on each element since there are cases were we want to add more variants.

comment:41 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6218]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed on the 'edit news' page and started on the 'view news' page. Need a lot more support in the main javascript libraries. Have started to introduce event handlers and related for 'edit', 'delete' and 'restore' functionality. Callback methods are currently handled by sending a notification event (base-notify) to a auto-generated temporary <div> tag. There are still some problems with it if, for example, a different action is needed.

comment:42 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6219]) References #1729 and #1730. Implemented support for dynamic attributes in the toolbar button extension. Added DynamicActionAttributes interface to be implemented by actions that support it. Support is also needed in the renderers (can be done by extending from the AbstractHtmlRenderer class) and action factories. By default all action factories inheriting from AbstractJspFactory get support for dynamic attributes, but implementation probably need to forward the attributes to the actual action beans (easy if the action bean extends from DynamicActionAttributeSupport.

The XmlLoader has also been updated to accept parameter tags with hyphens since most dynamic attributes that we use are data-* attributes.

Finally, the help button on 'view news' page has been used as a test bed for this feature and the example extensions are also about to be updated.

comment:43 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6220]) References #1729 and #1730. The view and list pages for news have now been almost completely fixed. The only remaining issue is to implement the return callback in 'selection' mode, but since there are no dialogs that select news items this have to wait for the next batch.

comment:44 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6221]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed on every list page:

  • Delete item permantly icon
  • Share item icon
  • Check/uncheck all icon

comment:45 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6222]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed for the software pages. Includes adding support for 'Share' and 'Set owner' buttons. Added support for using custom events instead of callback methods to return selected items. Slightly tested with the 'Edit project' page, but need a page with updated script for full testing.

comment:46 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6223]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed for the user administration pages. The 'Set owner' dialog now use the new event-based method for returning selected items. When the group and role administration pages have been fixed there will be a lot more places for testing.

comment:47 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6224]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed for the group and roles administration pages.

comment:48 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

comment:52 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6245]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed for biosource pages.

comment:53 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6246]) References #1729 and #1730. Implement lazy loading of 'Annotations'/'Inherited annotations' as a tab activation event instead of replacing the 'switchTab' function in the tab-control taglib. Done for the biosurce and sample edit dialogs.

Also improved the implementation so that the last parameters used are kept in the common code and the edit dialogs no longer has to keep track of when a protocol is changed or when the parent item selection changes.

comment:54 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6247]) References #1729 and #1730. And two more files that should have been included in [6246].

comment:55 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6254]) References #1729 and #1730. Use lazy loading of 'Annotations'/'Inherited annotations' for all other items.

comment:56 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6255]) References #1729 and #1730. Use lazy loading for the 'Annotations' frame on the view page as well. Started to work on the 'Inherit annotations' dialog, but the Joust tree can't be done at the moment so there is still some work to do.

comment:57 Changed 9 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6256]) References #1729 and #1730. Use lazy loading for the 'Data files' frame in the edit dialogs. Inline scipts has also been removed from the edit file dialog and view and download file links.

(In [6314]) References #1729 and #1730. Several edit dialogs in the 'View' menu. Expression builder, which required changes to the 'Validate' function which is now done on the server side instead of in the browser (due to the use of eval() on user input).

comment:82 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6315]) References #1729 and #1730. Fixed on experiment-related pages.

comment:83 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6342]) References #1729 and #1730.

Moved Main.show(), Main.hide() and related functions to Doc namespace.

New feature is that all functions can be used with id or document element.

Use existing function in App namespace for Main.getWindowHeight() and Main.getWindowWidth().

comment:87 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6380]) References #1729 and #1730. The Joust menu tree on the extensions overview page has been fixed. The joust-2.js script is still missing some functionality and error checking. For example, no support for lazy initialization.

Most icons have been reszied to 18x18 pixels. The old icons was a mess with a mix of 16x16, 18x16 and 18x18.

comment:88 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6381]) References #1729 and #1730. Made 16x16 variants of some icons for the toolbars. Cleaning up the code for toggling and selecting a menu entry. Making sure text to appear in the menu is not passing through HTML markup and destroying the layout.

comment:89 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

comment:97 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6393]) References #1729 and #1730. The configure plugin/job dialog is now fixed. Also made a change in the 'NullPlugin?' so that it is possible to test better in the web interface. A side effect is that the 'Test with file' function is no longer working, so this need to be fixed as well.

comment:98 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

comment:104 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6400]) References #1729 and #1730. Move the last few methods in main.js to main-2.js. These two tickets should now be more or less finished, but I guess that some testing is needed. Particularly in Internet Explorer which have not been used much at all during this development.

comment:105 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6401]) References #1729 and #1730. The extensions menu now support dynamic event binding. Added 'id' and 'clazz' attributes to MenuItemAction interface. The onClick method is deprecated. Scripts can be included to handle click events or use dynamic attribute 'data-url' for simple links.

comment:106 Changed 8 years ago by Nicklas Nordborg

(In [6403]) References #1729 and #1730. Updating the documentation so that at least something of this is mentioned. Some of the extension example code now use the 'onclick'-free version.
