    Talking Newbie....

    Im gona make this short....Im Aaron, 16, Ohio, Like programming, know HTML,Javascript, and 6809 Assembly as my top programming languages. Thanks for your time....



    First question, can Extensions run Java? I tried and it didn't seem like they could.....it just didn't boot. I know it can run Javascript, though....Which I am working on a project for my first *uber* fun extension lol.....



    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Thanks guys....

    Yeah I built a little program to put the Java NVES progrma in a window but it wouldn't load


    Now im working on pong, options page isn't working 0_o grrrrr.....


    I've got alot of projects and am thinking of a REALLY creative one to release first before pong and stuff just to make a extension from scratch.....A kind of Tomagotchi thing.....That would be so cool haha....Im gona start later this week when schools out for the weekend....



    Hopefully I can come up with some creative extensions, I don't care about usefullness, I want fun apps lol

    Oh and by 6809 I do it on a Trs-80 Color Computer 1 mainly if anyone was wondering ....No 68HC11 yet.....

    The Tomagotchi thing could be real cool, wouldnt use it myself but could see lots of people liking it.

    What the hell is a 16 year old doing with a Trs-80?....wondered what 6809 was. The only Assembly I can do is for c64's and that was a long time ago

    Hopefully I can come up with some creative extensions, I don't care about usefullness, I want fun apps lol
    Love your attitude....doing it for fun! coders can be such a serious lot

    Haha, yeah, thanks


    Well when I was 10 I learned basic and when I was 14 learned assembly in a matter of 1 day or so haha.....Im okay with it, only problem I have is sound can't make it good yet....Need to do that some day but whatever lol


    C64 is insane, That crappy 6502....I can't do it....Its a love hat relationship with me and the 6502, I also collect NES games so I HAVE to like it, but at the same time, no comparison to the power of the Z80 or 6809.....


    Well I forgot my USB drive Im at school, looks like im gona get a early start on the tomagotchi.....Instead of playing VNES ^_^

    Well im starting the extension for the Chrome pet. Is there any way to have a script run even when the extension is unclicked? I want it to update in real time and make a ! badge show up when something needs "taken care of" lol ^_^


    Also, I can't do anything artistic at all, know anyone who does animated images?


    Also thirdly, should I use Canvas? Images? Or Canvas with images? I dont know the best way to do this yet.....

    Some of your questions could have been answered in the api's docs....

    The background page is what you should look at.
    http://code.google.com/chrome/extens...und_pages.html
    look at the browser action page for details on changeing the icon/badge, you can do these methods from the background page..

    Not me Youve only got 19x19 pixels to work with so its gonna have to be small. Until you can find something original Id get a sprite pack for a snes game or something and use that in the meantime.

    Also thirdly, should I use Canvas? Images? Or Canvas with images? I dont know the best way to do this yet.....
    Canvas....and images with canvas, thatll prolly be it. If you want to see something working have a look at gmail checker plus...

    ...and for working with badges Waha's library is definitely worth a look....

    Ohhh well when I ment the sprites, I ment when you click on it, it will be a Image.....I was thinking 50x50....Canvas? I don't know, I wana animate some of them and loading images too a little bit of time on my old first HTML attempt (Not as complex but same basic idea)


    Yeah I looked around there, and didn't check the background part, I thought that ment the Background and styles of a page, my fault *facepalm*


    Yeah I got it to work the badge, Didnt realize that you need {text:"text"} inside ().....Hmm.....That should be added to the site.....


    Thanks guys, I hope I am not changing topic too much, I personally dont think this is worth another post on another topic so.....Yeah.....I just post here XD You can mave if you want, Mods....


    Thanks for all the help guys! Extensions arent that old but you guys are like Pro's with it. I feel n00by




    Edit...


    Okay it's probably because I'm stupid, but lets say I wana run a script on the Background page, if the Script isn't in the main page your on, does it search through the background page? Sorry im not use to stuff interacting like this ^_^ Truthfully im not getting it that easily.....But good for now to learn....
