Topic: keyboard events
17:37:46 [smaug]
shepazu: I updated the spec based on hallword's (spelling?) notes
17:40:16 [jrossi]
17:41:14 [smaug]
shepazu: added supplementary idl for charCode/keyCode/which
17:42:17 [smaug]
shepazu: there lots of legacy stuff we don't need to specify, but legacy keyboard events are mainstream
17:43:23 [smaug]
shepazu: not making it normative though
17:46:54 [smaug]
shepazu: it is not appendix because I wanted to keep it there near other keyboard stuff
17:47:53 [smaug]
shepazu: will change it to appendix
17:49:57 [smaug]
smaug: I'd suggest not using KeyboardEvent, but LegacyKeyboardEvent
17:51:08 [smaug]
jrossi: Why not switch to WebIDL?
17:51:39 [smaug]
shepazu: WebIDL is not stable enough yet
17:53:09 [smaug]
jrossi: about WDC vs D3E
17:53:34 [smaug]
jrossi: I have a testpage about that
17:54:45 [smaug]
jrossi: D3E doesn't need to restrict what the event type string can be
17:56:21 [smaug]
smaug: I agree
17:57:13 [smaug]
smaug: the other difference is the exceptions from dispatchEvent
17:57:33 [smaug]
jrossi: I like keeping the two different exceptions

ISSUE-178 -- Implementations and DOM Core allow empty string and null event types -- raised
18:03:57 [trackbot]
18:04:44 [smaug]
resolution: accept the change request issue-178
18:05:54 [jrossi]
18:05:54 [trackbot]
ISSUE-179 -- DOM Core uses INVALID_STATE_ERR (DOMException) where D3E uses DISPATCH_REQUEST_ERR (EventException) -- raised
18:05:56 [trackbot]
18:07:05 [smaug]
resolution: it is useful to have separate exceptions for for different cases
18:08:17 [smaug]
