(btw you're lucky i speak german, considering your errors are in german )
Ah my fault, I already see what the problem is, should have it fixed in a few days time along with the rest

Hi Nicezia, I still have problem saving the files too, anyway right now it's possible to copy and paste just the expression, I'd like to have the possibility to copy and paste the output and the xml too as it was in vers 2.15 (it's really more comfortable)
Tnx in advance
- Nicezia - 2009-10-31 03:42
copy and paste output to what?
- KoTiX - 2009-10-31 10:04
This explain everything:
I'd like to have those fields completely editable.
Tnx in advance

First: No plans to currently make XML pasteable (that's a whole 'nother ballgame, that i'm not planning to play anytime soon - that's a whole seperate area of coding, andI'm working on getting this point release working right before adding any NEW features)
Second: Input and Output both use the same functions to create their menus, so its hard to understand why you're having this problem..... I can cut/paste/insert in all cases... if all else fails turn off the Context Menus save settings and restart the program, and the default textbox content menus will be restored

Uhm I just found out that copying the Output using ctrl+c works, using the context menu it doesn't (even resaving the settings).
No prob form me for your first answer

I really Like ScraperXML Editor it is a great program ...
I am using the 10-23-2009 build ...
I am testing the album Hillbilly Deluxe by Brooks & Dunn
I keep getting a parsing error when trying to use allmusic.xml
It get to getreview :
Here is the error message :
Can Not Parse Xml
Error Return:Error occurred While parsing Entityname Line 1, Position 61.
Am I doing something Wrong ??
Thanks for a great Program ...

no you're not doing anything wrong that is a problem with the biography/review which sometimes contains ampersands a stray ampersand will make a string unparseable to xml (a problem that can be easily fixed with my suggested modification to the scraper parser in XBMC - or can be fixed using the Fixamp option on the biography/review expression - notice: XBMC does not support this yet)
New Version Soon! - Nicezia - 2009-12-20 03:29
By Monday expect a new version of ScraperXML Editor
*Full support for encoding.
*Ampersand handling built into code (no need for fixamp anymore via ScraperXML 5.0 beta)
*Support for commenting Functions, RegExp's & Expressions;
*Some redesigning of tree layout (expression now a part of RegExp editor)
*A Function Modeler will create a base Model for the standard functions and Custom Functions.
*Full support for TV Scrapers (Episode handling as well)
*Support for generic scrapers (A scraperxml 5.0 beta feature). Generic scrapers can be made to collect any kind of content providing the site follows a basic structure (I personally created it to make RSS feeds for sites that are without that i want to keep up with)
*RegexBuddy Integration as well as a remodeled Tester;
*Context Menus should no longer be problematic.
*New Scraper Evaluation. Catches common problems in scrapers.
Fixamp removed from expression. (new ScraperXML code compensates for this now)
Settings Editor: Settings are now created in the same way as other functions.
Include Manager Integrated into ScraperInfo Edit Page.
Only reason I'm not releasing today is because i just got my internet services and none of the net features have been tested.
