Comments on Gridmapper

There anywhere I can get a complete list of keyboard commands? I've found some stuff that is not listed... and I can't seem to figure out to copy/paste like at all... lol...

Thanks...

Hm, that's strange. Basically copy and paste works using shift arrows to mark an area, Ctrl+C or Shift+C to "copy" it (placing the commands necessary to recreate it into the export area), Ctrl+X or Shift+X to "cut" it, and Ctrl+V or Shift+V to "paste" it.

I guess we could say every "secret" key you find is actually a bug and should be listed somewhere on the right side.

how bout that... lol... "shift+c"/"shift+v" works fine... ctrl does nothing... :D

I just found that reading the source code. I think the problem was that I wanted to record an playback scripts and thus all the commands need an ASCII representation. Or perhaps it was because browsers implement key events in such incompatible ways.

I am somewhat disappointed that Ctrl+Z is the equivalent of Shift+Z and that isn’t used for undo. A missed opportunity!

Is there a list of all available commands and/or even what each of the objects is suppose to represent? either way, cool little program... :)

Do you see a popup help text? Depending on the browser's support for the mix of SVG and XHTML, this may or may not work. I just tried Chrome, Edge and Firefox on Windows 10 and it didn't work for any of them. Super uncool.

If you look at the source code of the page, you'll find them if you search for "title". This is how it starts:

<svg x="30" y="150">
  <a href="javascript:interpret('f')">
    <text y="14"><tspan class="key">f</tspan> :</text>
  </a>
  <a xlink:href="javascript:interpret('f')" title="floor">
    <use x="50" xlink:href="#empty"/>
  </a>
  <a xlink:href="javascript:interpret('fv')" title="void">
    <rect x="80" width="20" height="20" fill="ivory"/>
    <use x="80" xlink:href="#void"/>
  </a>
  <a xlink:href="javascript:interpret('fvv')" title="water">
    <use x="110" xlink:href="#water"/>
  </a>
</svg>
