Spelling - no dialog box with options to correct

I do not get a dialog box when I right click on a misspelled work. This is the case when using Safari (this message box for example), Mail, Outlook for the Mac, Word, and other apps. When a word is misspelled it is underlined in red. When I right click on the redline disappears, but I do not get a dialog box offering me options.
On another Mac that I own, I get this dialog box with the options to pick the correct spelling or learn the word. I am assuming this is an OS system setting as the problem seems to be universal.

I found that I did not have secondary click turned on in System Preferences for either my mouse of my tack pad. Control clicking on a misspelled word, worked, and this gave me the clue to the problem. I now get the dialog box I was expecting.

  • When I try to add an RSS or Atom feed, I get a dialog box with Open or Save instead of adding the feed to NewsFox like it used to do.

    With Firefox 4.x, when I added a feed, it would open NewsFox in a new tab, and bring up a dialog box with info about that feed. I would click on "test this feed" and it would put all available items into NewsFox. Now, I get this dialog box with Open or Save. If I click on Open (declaring Firefox as the preferred app), then it opens the feed itself, it doesn't add it to NewsFox. I've tried going into Options and about:config but don't see anything to change that would fix this problem. I tried Search in Firefox Help but no relevant threads came up.

    Thanks Cor-El. I already have it set to "Use NewsFox." I'm stumped.

  • Opening print dialog box with "Selection" printing enabled

    Hi all,
    I have a JTable in which I wan to print only selected rows. When I open the Print dialog box using printDialog() method of PrinterJob, the dialog opens with "Selection" option disabled.
    How can I enable this option ?
    How can I print my selection using the standard Print Dialog ?

    This I know.
    Let me refrase my question:
    I have a table with selected cells (Rows Cols
    whatever ...) I wish to open the print dialog box
    with Selection radio button enabled, such that when I
    will check it and click print, the selected table
    cell get printed.This I had understood.
    Let me refrase my reply:
    If you simply print a new table containing the selected data
    then you don't need to have the Selection radio button enabled
    in the print dialog box.

  • I've developed the problem that when I click on something I get a dialog box with a mess of stuff such as: Back,re;oad page ,Open in dashboard ,print page, etc. It's quite annoying!

    I have a problem that when I click on something I get a dialog box with Back,Reload page, Open in Dashboard,View Source Save page as ETC. I don't get the normal or expected respose to a simple "click". Another problem. For some reason the back and forth arrows it the tool bar of Safari have shifted from the upper left hand cornor to the uuuer rihht hand cornor.

    Something is seriously wrong then.  Did you move it?  There are several Library folders.  One of them should be inside your HOME folder.
    If WZZZ suggestion does not work, re-install your OS by using Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo.  When done, repair permissions and restart your computer.

  • I get a dialog box with a copy of firefox is open and only one copy of firefox can be open at one time.

    I get a dialog box with the following: "a copy of firefox is open and only one copy of firefox can be opened at one time."
    I do not see where firefox is open.
    How do get back into firefox so that i can read the links that are in my emails?
    Thank you.

    Sometimes when FF is closing, not all of it shuts down properly.
    On Windows, start the '''Task Manager''' (Other systems may have
    different names and / or commands). Select '''Processes'''.
    Look down the list for Firefox. Right click and select '''End Task'''.

  • Creating a dialog box with OK and Cancel buttons without OADialogPage

    Hi Experts,
    i want to create a dialog box for Delete Confirmation means after clicking on delete it should pop up a small dialog box with OK/Cancel buttons
    and need code for the same to handle the buttons.
    i have created with OADialogPage but its showing in a complete page but i want to show those buttons in a small box.
    Plz help.

    I have not tried using javascript in destination URI as suggested by Mukul.
    I have tried the below code for opening a page as dialog box.
    You can try it for your requirement by creating a dialog page of your own, say XXDialogPage (with OK and Cancel button)
    StringBuffer l_buffer = new StringBuffer();
    l_buffer.append("javascript:mywin = openWindow(top, '");
    String url = "/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?page=/xx/oracle/apps/fnd/dialog/webui/OADialogPG";
    OAUrl popupUrl = new OAUrl(url, OAWebBeanConstants.ADD_BREAD_CRUMB_SAVE );
    String strUrl = popupUrl.createURL(pageContext);
    l_buffer.append("', 'lovWindow', {width:500, height:500},false,'dialog',null);");
    In dialog page's controller, you can forward it to the page onc ethe user selects OK or Cancel.
    Pass the selected value back to the main page and further you can use it for deleting.

  • How to create a Dialog Box with two buttons (Acept and Cancel)?

    Hi i am devoloping an application (an applet) that has to throw a Dialog box, if i click on the Acept button makes some thing and if i click on the Cancel button the it makes other things.
    how could i throw this dialog message...?

    The following would be the code needed for your dialog box:
         JDialog dialog = new JDialog();
         //the following window listener to the dialog box is optional
         dialog.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter(){
              public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e){
         JButton acceptButton = new JButton("Accept");
         JButton cancelButton = new JButton("Cancel");
         acceptButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
              public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
                  //do what you need to do
         cancelButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
              public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
                  //do what you need to do
         Container cont = dialog.getContentPane();
         cont.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
         dialog.setVisible(true); I hope this would be useful

  • Blank Dialog Boxes with PUSH ME blue buttons

    Greetings All,
    I'm a fairly experienced Mac User and have been a bit surprised recently to be getting blank dialog boxes with buttons. Could it be some sort of spyware hoping I'll just push the blue buttons?
    It seems to come up once my Mac has been on for a while.
    Today I clicked a link at a website I frequently visit. I did so in FIREFOX and it's one of the few sites I allow for pop up windows. The link doesn't lead to a popup, but it did in this case: a blank window with blank buttons.
    I quit FIREFOX and won another such window. I logged out, logged in, and it's gone.
    Is there some utility I can open-- like Activity monitor-- and find out what these windows are attached to?
    Just curious,
    (I have two similar Macs but only this one seems to do it.)

    I would look in Console and see if anything is being reported as you're experiencing this. (Console is in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder). If something is, post it here.
    When the window is visible, switch to the Finder by clicking on its icon in the Dock. Then click onto the dialog to activate its window. See if the application name in the upper left corner changes when the dialog window comes forward. If it does, then it would most likely be the name of the application that's created the dialog. If it doesn't change, then it could be created by either the Finder or by an invisible background application whose LSUIElement is set to 1 so that it doesn't appear in the Dock or in the Force quit window (it should show in Activity Monitor though). To determine which one it is, do the following. Switch to another application, like TextEdit, by clicking on its icon in the Dock. Then click on the dialog window again to bring it forward. If the application name shown in the upper left still says TextEdit, then you know that the dialog is being created by a background application.
    If it is, Open Activity Monitor and change the scope to All Processes. Quit as many open applications as possible, and then bring the dialog forward again. A pulsating button should use a small amount of CPU usage, try to use that to help narrow down what process might be causing it. Also, most likely any application that's drawing a button will have the "/System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/
    HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Extras.rsrc" file listed as an open file in the Open Files and Ports tab of an info window of Activity Monitor. (You can open an info window for an application by double-clicking on it in Activity Monitor).
    Hope this helps....

    Would anybody please help me?
    My Operating System: Windows XP

    The article over at http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/Printing/Java2DPrinting/ has some helpful information on printing Swing components.
    It suggests creating a subclass of the JComponent that you want to print, and have it implement Printable interface.
    So, something like (note, uncompiled / untested code alert) :
    import java.awt.Frame;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.Graphics2D;
    import java.awt.HeadlessException;
    import java.awt.print.PageFormat;
    import java.awt.print.Printable;
    import javax.swing.JDialog;
    public class PrintableDialog extends JDialog implements Printable {
          * Or whichever constructor you need...
         public PrintableDialog(Frame owner, String title, boolean modal) throws HeadlessException {
              super(owner, title, modal);
          * Implementation of the Printable interface.
           public int print(Graphics g, PageFormat pf, int pageIndex) {
              if (pageIndex != 0) return NO_SUCH_PAGE;
              Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g;
              g2.translate(pf.getImageableX(), pf.getImageableY());
              return PAGE_EXISTS;

  • Move an application "pop-up" (dialog box) with keyboard possible?

    Is there a way to move an application's pop up (dialog box) with a keyboard command/shortcut? I had a situation where I was not connected to my 2nd monitor and an application popup box was opening on that 2nd (*not connected*) monitor.
    I hate to say this; but on a PeeCee, a user can move a window via the keyboard. Is this possible on a Mac? Thanks!

    no, it's not possible on a mac. if the popup open on the other monitor connect the second monitor and move the popup with a mouse. it should open on the main monitor form now on.
    If you don't have a second monitor at all do the following.
    1) goto System Prefs - universal access - enable access for assistive devices.
    Paste the following into Script Editor and press run. This will move all offscreen windows currently open on the second monitor to the main screen.
    <pre style="

  • Mouse stops responding and instead brings up a box with options like Search in Spotlight, etc..  What's happening?

    Sometimes when I'm typing and click on wireless mouse to correct a misspelling or the like, the mouse stops responding--freezes--and instead brings up a box with one set of options or another.  One box includes  Search in Spotlight, Search in Google, Look in Dictionary, etc..  The other box includes Help, Cut, Copy, Paste, Font, etc. 
    On some days, like yesterday, this happens every few minutes.  Today, however, it hasn't happened yet--oops, spoke too soon...it just happened again!
    I've checked mouse preferences and tried different options there to no avail.
    Can anyone help?

    Soundl like you are activating the mouse "right click" by mistake and and getting contextual menus instead of the standard left click. I suggest that you turn off the right click option for a while in pref's and use the combination of;  "control + mouse click" to access these menus when you actually want them. This will ensure that a miss click is not the problem.
    If the problem is fixed, then turn the right click option back on so you can adjust your usage of the mouse with care to click on the right or left side of the mouse for standard or right clicks. this way you know that the problem is you and not the mouse.

  • I would like to replace the file dialog box with a programmab​le dialog box, that generates its selections from Database Informatio​n

    Where would be the best place to achieve this?
    I have been thinking about these options:
    - Modification of the Operator Interface.
    - Modification of the Sequence Model.
    - Use callbacks to modify the sequence model.
    - Use callbacks to modify the Engine (ie the Auto.seq example)
    Or combinations of the above.
    The biggest requirement I have in developing this project is in the reuse of code and I believe that callbacks in the seq would be the way to achieve this.
    But I am not familiar with the usage of callbacks in teststand (yet) and I don't know where to look for information/examples on what I can do with them.
    Has anybody done anythin
    g similar?
    Any suggestions would be great!

    I am trying to replace the operators interface's sequence file dialog box. I am also trying to hide the standard operators interface.
    What I am after is to replicate a user experience!
    Teststand is being used to replace an ATE written in LV where each of the tests are hardcoded in. The user selected the product and test types from a button based dialog boxes.
    I am using TS to overcome all of the limitations of the original ATE, but one of the requirements is the system has to have the same look and feel of the original.
    I originally though that I would have to modify an operators interface, but I would prefer not too, and would rather change the process models and use engine and station callbacks.
    If I have to change an operatos interface, I would pre
    fer if the changes didn't affect the normal running of standard TS sequences.
    I have attached the process model, i am trying to achieve, (its in Visio).

  • Creating a print dialogue box with options

    Hi there,
    I'm struggling with an issue of usability.
    I have a complex form which increases in size when the user enters more text  - many pages where there are info boxes of text that are hidden when printing - this has a knock on effect that page numbers on screen don't match page numbers when printing.
    I got help from Radzmar (thank you!) who gave me the code for a print button that prints a section rather than a page number span; so when the user clicks the button:
    var vObj = xfa.resolveNode("form1.summary"),
      vPageStart = xfa.layout.absPage(vObj),
      vPageEnd = vPageStart + xfa.layout.absPageSpan(vObj) - 1;
    xfa.host.print(1, vPageStart.toString(), vPageEnd.toString(), 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
    ...the form will print the contents from my section 'form1.summary'
    However, thinking about usability, it would make sense to have a button that opened a dialogue box which gave the user immediate options. At any one time there would be three options:
    1. To print just the page they are looking at
    2. To print the section they are on
    3. To print the entire document
    In plain english the dialogue box should say something like:
    Title: Printing Options
    Message: 'You have several options for printing'
    Button One text: 'Print this page only'
    Button two text: 'Print this section only (name of section goes here, such as 'Core Data', 'Assessment' etc.)
    Button three text: 'Print the entire document'
    Button four: Cancel
    I'm new to scripting and using the script editor doesn't give me enough options to edit a message box so I'm wondering if someone could help please.
    I should also mention that the end product here is a pdf form which needs to work through acrobat reader without necessarily being online.
    Many thanks,

    Firefox 3.0 and earlier versions had a preference '''print.use_native_print_dialog ; true''' which could be toggled to '''''false''''', but with Firefox 3.5 it was removed. When that pref was set to false the "print" command went directly to the printer, without the appearance of the dialog box.
    It is possible to show a "printer-ready" window, because I see them frequently at many websites, so your developer needs to study up on how to display a "printer-ready" page and not trigger the appearance of the "native print dialog" box. Unfortunately, Firefox users no longer have control over the appearance of that dialog from within Firefox.
