Hi, it's possible to have some support by the authors about the examples code ? It seems that the planets.html example in the ch05 don't works correctly. As reported in a recent post the example works except that the planets image don't display in the left side bar. It's a question of a bug in the example code ? It's possible to have a cleaner sample code source ? Can someone confirm me such issue ?
Thanks and Regards

Eric, thanks for your answer, I apologize for my impatience. I found your book a very great job, I like very much your approach focalized in the pattern design. I have buyed 2 copies, one in english and one in french, which is more readable for me. Simply I would like to take the best advantage from example code


thanks for your hints, now it works but I think yet there are some problem in the code because the Firefox Console Java Script reports some exception error like

Errore: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIXMLHttpRequest.status]" nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)" location: "JS frame :: http://localhost:8083/ch05/net.js :: anonymous :: line 56" data: no]
File sorgente: http://localhost:8083/ch05/net.js

I have try planets.html example in the ch05 but the planets menu don't display the image, only the text (mercury, venus, etc.) appears.

The generated html is
<div class="planetbar" id="planetbar">
<div id="p1" class="planetbutton"><img  ></div>

all the src attribute in the img tags are set to undefined.

What's the problem ? Can you help ?
