Re: Jaws 9.0 and Mozilla Thunderbird

Hi Daniel and everyone else.

I have no experience editing Jaws scripts. If someone could make the changes to the Thunderbird scripts that Daniel suggests, that would be great. Please let us know when this is done.

Try turn off the virtual cursor before enter text in the body of a message. This can be done pressing insert+z. You'll need turn the virtual cursor on again after compose and send the message.

Are ok that works? I don't use jaws but thats good to hear.
Maybe if someone wants to add this to the scripts?
You would just need to check if you were in the compose window. If you were just perform script what ever you said above.



A follow up. Its probably not that simple.
But im sure you can call a function to toggle it and check then if its one or 0. I guess if its 0 then you can just continue.
Otherwise set it to 0...

Maybe call the test if from say um... maybe keypressed event? No probably called to much. No actually its only a short bit of code so should be ok.
Just looked through the jfw script functions library and found this.
if GetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR)==0 then

I could probably question this code. But I won't. Where are the ()s? It compiles yes. But surrounded in (s and )s is best.

Anyway you could do this:
if(InCompose () ==1) then
if (GetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR)==1) then
SetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR, 0)
endif

Now when the window is exited you must set it back to one.
Probably a good idea to add an else to that if.
and put the lot in the compose stuff.
Just add else
SetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR, 1)

So the whole thing looks like:
if (GetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR)==1) then
SetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR, 0)
else
SetJCFOption (OPT_VIRTUAL_PC_CURSOR, 1)
endif

If someone has 5 minutes to wack it into the auto key pressed event function then I'll put your name in the scripts and on the site. This should sort out the issue with jaws 9 and then you won't have to do insert z.
