MooTools More 1.2.4.3, 1.2.4.4

Written By Aaron Newton, on Tuesday, February 9th 2010, 9:10pm

UPDATE: 1.2.4.4 is also released; there was a new bug in Tips introduced in 1.2.4.3 that was immediately patched.

This is mostly a bug fix release.

  • Nearly 50 bug fixes (see the milestone for 1.2.4.3 in Lighthouse).
  • Keyboard:
    • Added some support for just pressing ‘shift’, ‘control’, or ‘alt’
    • Added a bunch of keycodes for Mac compatibility
  • Keyboard.Extras:
    • Support for “shortcuts” which are keyboard entries that have names and descriptions.
    • Also provides methods for listing all the active shortcuts as well as allowing a shortcut to be rebound (for instance, if you were to allow the user to choose a key for a shortcut).
    • Added a change event to Keyboard.manager whenever any keyboard is activated.
  • Tips:
    • NEW Tips option “windowPadding” allows you to reduce or expand the virtual size of the window for tip positioning. Defaults to {x:0, y:0}. You can use that is a workaround for the scrollbars not being considered when calculating tip positions.
  • HtmlTable:
    • fixed numerous bugs filed in Lighthouse
    • HtmlTable can no longer apply it’s click behavior more than once.
    • HtmlTable now pushes headers defined in the options.
    • Reworked HtmlTable’s DOM a bit to allow for positioning of the sort icon
    • Added new set method for headers and footers.
    • Fixed error in HtmlTable.Parsers when sorting by date. format(‘db’) was being applied to the text and not the date object.
  • Array:
    • Added Array.shuffle
  • Request.JSONP:
  • Fx.Slide:
    • Added an option to specify the wrapper element for Fx.Slide. Was already present in the docs but could not be passed as an option.
  • Mask:
    • Added options for the IframeShim for Mask

As usual, if you find any issues, file a ticket at lighthouse. There are already tickets open for 1.2.4.4 that we are not including fixes for in this release. Look for a release for these things in the next few weeks.

    Indeed, nice work on my fave JS library. Looking at the tickets, it seems that Tips still has some issues. In my app, when I set “fixed” to true, the offsets are ignored. Also there is a javascript error on the initial hover for Tips (which is better than the previous mootools where an error occurred on every hover). Here’s what my console says in firebug:

    this.container is undefined });this.fireEvent(“detach”,[d]);if(thi…function(c,b){this.container.empty();

    Hopefully those aren’t too tough to fix! It looks like cpoger has perhaps fixed one or both of these issues and is in favor of a 1.2.4.4 release soon. Anywho, thanks everyone for the continued effort on mootools!
