I have no idea what's being requested here.
Comment 3 Anne 2013-03-07 11:05:35 UTC
HTMLOptionsCollection uses various IDL concepts that are not referenced.
Comment 4 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2013-04-12 23:04:44 UTC
Why does anything need referencing? I still don't understand. What concept is not referenced that needs to be referenced? Did WebIDL change at some point?
Comment 5 Anne 2013-04-13 08:18:25 UTC
The terms "set the value of an existing indexed property" and "determine the value of an indexed property" are not used. However, maybe IDL should not require specific names here but just an algorithm that goes with the IDL block.
Comment 6 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2013-06-03 20:47:40 UTC
I don't understand. Isn't this behaviour just inherited from HTMLCollection?

Can you be more explicit about what you want to have changed? I really don't understand what you want changed here. As far as I can tell, the only thing this interface introduces is "set the value of a new indexed property", which I reference directly, and the named property getter, etc, use named operations.
Comment 7 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2013-10-04 21:27:47 UTC
Ms2ger points out that my creator is also a setter, so I've added "set the value of an existing indexed property". Is that sufficient?
Comment 8 contributor 2013-10-04 21:27:55 UTC
Checked in as WHATWG revision r8212.
Check-in comment: WebIDL doesn't default 'setter' to 'creator' (HTMLOptionsCollection)
