Zhong Wen Jie Shi 0.2a.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
Provide a sidebar which shows explanation of chinese characters (courtesy of nciku) for characters which you select.
Am trying to brush up my chinese hence coded a simple add-on to help myself, thought I'll it too ^_^
About this Add-on
- open the Zhong Wen Jie Shi (ZWJS) side bar
- select any text and the translation request will be automatically sent to nciku.com.
- the results of the translation will be shown in the sidebar.
- the translation is sent if (1) there is some existing selected text (2) upon mouse up event
- there is a known issue whereby the add-on will send one final superfluous translation if the mouse is used to close the sidebar.
- uses nsIAlertsService hence Mac X would need Growl to see the notification window.
This will also resolve the issue on the superfluous translation being performed when closing the ZWJS sidebar with the mouse.
Thanks to the little spark for your advice. =)
This add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox because of the following:
