Comment Generator for the Test Releases page

I've made this a while ago and decided to share it with the community. This page takes the app data from a form and generates the content of a properly formatted comment for the Test Releases page, preventing the burden of editing the code directly and inadvertently removing some tag. It also automatically escapes special characters.

The import and export buttons do... well, they save and load the form data to a file. Uselful for updates.

The interface is at http://kalug.users.sourceforge.net/temp/kyra/pages/test_release_generato..., with the hard work being done by http://kalug.users.sourceforge.net/temp/kyra/lib/pages/test_release_gene... (on LyCWeb.addCallback).

Good!

That's something I have on my list of things for PADT (including producing for the Beta Testing topic as well), this looks like it should do people very nicely until I do it in PADT.

Edit: didn't seem to work for me. Haven't tried analysing it at all.

Also, ampersands will need to be doubly escaped - e.g. Graphics & Pictures needs to be output for inclusion in the <pre> tag as Graphics &amp;amp; Pictures. Didn't notice your escapeHtml function, glad you noticed the issue.

Come to think of it, it would make a fair amount of sense to put this into test/releases itself, including submitting the comment.

Try again

It should work now, except by the import/export functionality.
Can some web developer tell me what event on a <input type="file"> pops up the "Open File" dialog?

?

I really don't understood what do you said... anyway, try to download and import (select) this file. It should be fully validated.
EDIT: And regarding the version, it's designed for development tests, so they need to match /^(.+) (?:DT|Dev(?:elopment)? Test) (\d+)$/.

The onclick event should do

The onclick event should do it in most browsers. For some, onfocus may also work.

Nope

What I want is a button that, when clicked, pops up that dialog. This works on Firefox 4, but not on Chrome or Opera:

$('#import_button').click(function () {
	$('#import_file').click();
});

, where

<input type="button" id="import_button" value="Import..."/>
<input type="file"   id="import_file"/>

If this works, I can hide the file input entirely.
EDIT: And focus() doesn't work too.

New Site+Page

I've rewritten my website, and this means a new URL and improved support (tested on Chrome 14, Firefox 6 and Opera 11.50): http://kalug.net/TestReleaseGenerator.
Please try it again if it haven't worked for you before, and report any issues.

I'll make the source code available as soon as the website structure becomes stable enough and I make a Mercurial repo.
