Safari and a Java printreturn

Sir Macallot

To start off I'm not a Java programmer at all I'm just looking for a solution to a Java / Safari / printing ptoblem.
Can anyone here help me to dig in the right log files and compose a solution for my problem.
Detailed description below.

Kind regards,


Sir Macallot

I have a client with OS X 10.4.1 on an E-Mac, Java update 5 is installed.
Safari gets a Java compiled answer from an external (secure) server with a dataset to print on a matrix printer (epson 300).
The problem is that safari won't list the printers installed on the E-Mac within the site. The printers work fine through the normal CMD+P action.

To start off I get the remark:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0005'

Invalid procedure call or argument: 'Mid'

/index.asp, line 0

> This has to do with the certificate but perhaps it is of influence the rest of the site's java programming.
It's resolved when I DebugMenu to IE 6.

In the Java script console the following message is displayed;
Syntax error - Parse Error

Can someone please point my nose in the right direction as I'm not a Javaprogrammer.

Kind regards,

Ivo Noort.

Hmmm... I can't offer a solution as I'm not well versed with VBScript, but you can find absolutely wonderful help over at -- they've got some real talent over there, and have different forums for different languages (computer languages).

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Sir Macallot

Are there any Appleminded people there that know Safari and the Apple Java engine?

I'll go and have a look anyway but if you know any users there by name...




This has got nothing to do with Java. In fact, it is Javascript, which has nothing in common apart from the name, which was chosen to cash in on Java's popularity.

Go to the forum El Diablo pointed out. They will have Javascript and VBScript programmers there.
