Mac and Column Sorting Function


C Martin

Recommended Posts

Michel,

I know that this post was started again in the update forum.

I have updated my Java to the latest for the Mac. I have the new 6.0 Java and I am running the latest Safari and the new Firefox 3.0.

I just checked the sorting function in the different screens.

I can sort columns on the Device Screen, but not on the Programs Screen. this would indicate a problem in the program and not the Java capability of the browser. Please check and let me know if I'm wrong.

 

Thanks,

Hi Clarence,

 

Do you see the text "Click Column Heading to Sort" beside the Edit | Refresh buttons on the program summary screen?

 

If you don't see it then it doesn't think Java 6 is being used. If you do then there is some other problem.

For some reason it does not recognize you as using Java 6. Can you do the following on your Mac:

 

1) Open the Java console

2) In the Java console type 's' (You will see a bunch of values written e.g "java.version = 1.5.0_13")

3) Copy all the entries beginning with java. and paste them in a response here.

Sorry Chris,

exactly where do I do this?

I opened the java folder under the Utilities folder under the applications folder.

I don't see a place to type in the 's' that you mentioned.

Am I in the right place?

This is the same place where i delete the temp files.....

OK,

I was able to have the Java Console open and here are the results:

Hi Clarence,

 

It appears as though you are using Java 5:

 

java.version = 1.5.0_13

 

I don't have access to a Mac with Java 6 at the moment, but I believe the following to be the solution:

 

I assume you have installed Java 6, but it may still be using Java 5 for the Java Applet Runtime Settings:

 

1) Close the ISY Admin console

2) Using Finder->Applications->Utilities->Java->J2SE 6.0? ... Open the Java Preferences window and go to the General tab

3) Ensure that Java 6 is selected in the Java Version section of the Java Applet Runtime Settings

4) Hit the 'Save' button

5) Restart the Mac

 

Start the ISY Admin Console again and see if the sorting in the Program Summary works.

Hi Chris,

I went back to the Java console and did have to make one change. In one of the dialog boxes, I had to re-order my preferences for the version of Java to run first. But, to no avail... no sorting available.

So now Java 6.0 is the first in the list.

I'm feeling kind of dumb at this moment.

I'm upgrading to Leopard 10.5.4 now, and when I'm done I should be able to debug this problem a little better. In the meantime ...

 

In the Java Preferences window you have moved Java 6.0 to the top of the Java Application Runtime Settings list. Above that on that on the screen is a radio button selection of which Java version to use. Make sure you have selected Java 6.

 

After making these changes, you must reboot the Mac to start using them.

Chris,

Thanks for this effort.

I did all that you said with the Java Console.

Now, I will wait until you get our system upgraded we will kick this thing around again.

 

Let me know when you have your system up to date.

 

Again, thanks...

Hi Clarence,

 

The good news is Java 6 is available on Mac, but the bad news is Safari (and I think FireFox as well) does not support it, and thus will only use Java 5.0 when running applets.

 

Sorry for the runaround ... I'll let you know if I find a way to launch the applet using Java 6 on the Mac.

Chris,

 

Thanks again.

 

I did a search for Mac Browsers and the news is not good. The two most popular and supposedly the greatest are Safari and Firefox.

I am having some difficulty making Firefox open " my lighting". I am surprised that Apple hasn't kept up with Java's updates - Oh Well..

 

For such a sophisticated OS to have such slow software updates... I guess this proves that even Apple has abysses where things fall into. Hopefully not too far down though.

 

Let me know what you find.

 

Clarence
