Subject Scripting Batik...
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2002 17:40:42 GMT
Does anyone have a nice example showing how to use javascript (in an svg file
displayed in batik) to call java methods?

I was looking at Mozilla's Rhino documentation (the javascript package used in
Batik).  At http://www.mozilla.org/rhino/scriptjava.html they have a nice
example of scripting java using LiveConnect, part of Rhino.  I thought this
would help in one of my current projects, so I included the following in an svg

	function testjs(){
	  var frame = new Frame("JavaScript");
	  frame.setSize(new Dimension(200,100));
	  var but = new Button("OK");

Then, on a <text> object, I added an "onclick" attribute and set it to
"testjs()".  I then loaded the svg file in a Batik SVGCanvas object.  Sure
enough, when I clicked the text, a little java frame and button popped up.


So then I wanted to open one of my own frames, already defined in another part
of my package.  So I changed the javascript to something like this:

	function testjs(){
	 var b = new MyFrame();

Now, the jar file that holds the batik browser I have contains both the batik
libraries and also my own package.  So I'm thinking they should be all in the
classpath.  But when I click on the text now, I get an error message saying
"MyFrame()" is not a defined function.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?  Anyone else know how to use
javascript to call some of my java classes and methods?

Thanks for any tips!
