        @beroal
        Sure I am talking to you~~
        It would be great for someone to start helping me, since that FYP thing start haunting me :P
        Give me your email and I will make you a project member of
        https://code.google.com/p/tabkit-2nd-edition/
        And then you can update the code without giving me the patch(of course a notification would be better)
        Also do you have google+? It seems a good place for discussion(if we discuss here other people will get so many emails lol)

        @se-mephi: TabKit is written in JavaScript, as well as any ordinary Firefox extension is. The main difference from Java is that JavaScript is dynamically typed. You are required to learn XML, CSS, XUL also. But the hardest obstacle is to discover intricacies of Firefox, because there is almost no documentation, other than Firefox's source code. This is the hardest work.

        Are you talking to me? If so, I would like to help.

        Im just a old Java developer.. Which language is used for addon development? C++?

      • PikachuEXE commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Unless someone is helping, I am not supporting horizontal multirow tabbar anymore, since there are so many extensions supporting multirow tabbar

        If you think you will help develop the new tabkit then I will be happy to apply the patch

        lol I am testing it on 6.0.1 already
        Start working on bartab issue tomorrow...
        Got lesson today -3-

        @PikachuEXE: IMHO you should test on Firefox 6. Firefox 6 is in beta and I am afraid that Firefox 4 will be deprecated when you finish.

        Great News!
        The scroll bar for the vertical tab bar is back!
        LOL It tooks me 1~2 days to figure out the problem is in the CSS file (difference of DOM structure)
        Also as the tab bar resize, the tabs' width will follow again
        (I set the max width to 9999px, don't tell me it is not enough X))

        The highlighting tabs function seems to conflict with bartab though, need to fix this next (so the tab tree got to wait a bit)

        All the changes is pushed to Gcode already, test it if you want!

        Yes I have tried it also but it does not work
        Anyway I have created the project in google code with Mercurial
        Give me a day or two to sort it out :)

      • mpnk commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        @PikachuEXE why can't you push? did you try "git push origin master"?
        Mercurial would be fine

      • PikachuEXE commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I cannot do the last push command on github
        I am thinking to use google code with one of CVS(should be Mercurial for me)
        Any idea?

        @PikachuEXE
        Good work o/ You should make a repo on github or something so other people can work on it with you.

      • PikachuEXE commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just bring the splitter back(and can resize tabbar now), so many code need to be updated o3o
        Anyone know how to change the arrow to scrollbar...(I need to study other extension again? lol)

        @PikachuEXE
        That's great information. Hope You'll manage to make it working :-) Fingers crossed ;-)

      • PikachuEXE commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        OK, Now I am able to make the vertical tabbar work by referencing TU's code
        Then I have to fix the width...tab grouping...coloring...
        Well it might take some time but at least I have something to work on
