View Full Version : Ext.form.FormPanel load() errors loading url from local file

11 Jun 2009, 8:12 AM
Here is test code - it is just a simple window to test loading a url, and loading url data within a frame.

this displays without error in ie6.

but shows this error when in firefox:
uncaught exception: Access to restricted URI denied (NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI)

what else is wrong with the code?

var urlstring='yourServer/formdata.jsp';
var form;
var submitbtn = new Ext.Button
text: 'load from file',
url: urlstring,
waitMsg: 'Loading data...'
var field_name=
form = new Ext.form.FormPanel
new Ext.form.TextField({x:2,y:2+24*0,name:field_name[0],value:'<field1>',selectOnFocus:true}),
new Ext.form.TextField({x:2,y:2+24*1,name:field_name[1],value:'<field2>',selectOnFocus:true}),
new Ext.Panel({width:250,height:170,x:2,y:2+24*2,autoLoad:{url:urlstring}})
var win = new Ext.Window
x:1,y:1,layout: 'fit',
items: [form]

is it a relative URL to the domain that you're serving the page?

it's a plain html page in local directory calling url of server since it's only a test- so it's using absolute path here.

you shouldn't be getting this issue at all.

what do you see being requested in firebug? anything?

NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI in Firefox (http://www.webmaster-talk.com/javascript-forum/158783-ns_error_dom_bad_uri-in-firefox.html)

"I found the solution. Apparently it's caused because I was loading the file into Firefox locally. If I upload it to our server and run it, it works fine."

"Works on my browser because I changed the security, but it doesn't work on anyone else's browser... I need a valid solution for other users..."

"javascript should not be allowed to access files on another domain, due to the cross site scripting potential."

does anyone know how to set security features in firefox to ignore this?
