OT: XUL help!

Alex Hall-2
Hi all,
I am not sure that this is the right place to ask this, but I am
having trouble with my XUL file.  It displays text, but whenever
I insert an element, like a listbox, button, or textbox, that
element is not displayed.  What could I possibly be doing
wrong???? I have an example file and have checked that my window
declaration is correct more times than I can count, and it
displays basic text so the window must be okay.  Are the elements
case-sensitive in some strange way or something? Thanks for any
help; this is really frustrating!

Have a great day,
Alex

Hi Alex,

Any missing closing tags or malformed XML? The tags and attributes are
all lower case.

More help could possibly be provided in the mozilla.dev.tech.xul newsgroup.

Yes, they are formed correctly.  I tried a simple textbox with no
attributes inside my window, but evensomething as simple as that
did not appear.

Have a great day,
Alex

Alex, as there are many possibilities it is best as Marco says to head
over to a specialist list.

However if FF is showing text then my guess is it does not think it is
a XUL file as XUL text must be in <description> or <label>. Check all
the XML headers and if it is from a server and not a local file check
the server is tagging it with the correct Mime-type.

A great place to start is
  http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XUL_Tutorial
and this page is a 'must read'
  http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Setting_up_extension_development_environment
plus there's l;ots of other good stuff on MDC
