For jEdit 5.0.0 with Sidekick 1.4.

The Sidekick parser does not recognize any CSS selectors contained in @Media statements (ala http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/media\)

    Screenshot of CSS with @Media section in jEdit Sidekick 1.4

    Oops — uploading a screenshot seems to have also just created this bug. I'd also like to attach a CSS file but can't figure out how to do that.

    Anyhow, in a CSS file that contains an @Media section, Sidekick 1.4 cannot "see" anything contained in that section.

    A simple example is as follows:

    ------ Begin CSS Excerpt ------

    /*<meta />*/

    body
    {
    border: solid 1px #324664;
    margin: 4% 1em 4% 1em;
    padding: 1em 1em 1em 2em;
    line-height: 1.2em;
    font-family: Arial;
    font-size: 0.9em;
    }

    @media print
    {
    body
    {
    margin: 0em;
    border: none;
    padding: 0in;
    }

    ------ End CSS Excerpt ------

    In this example, the Sidekick parser will list the first body selector (and any other selectors in that "default" CSS section, but will not list anything contained within the @media print section.

    Cheers & hope this helps,

    Check your css -- it's missing a trailing }. When I add it, the css parses in sidekick just fine. Probably not telling you about the parse error is a bug. I've changed the title of this bug so it describes this problem.

    It does show this in the Activity Log when the } is missing:

    Actually, no — the missing end bracket } for the media section was a copy and paste error.

    I'd love to paste the CSS file but after I added the PNG screenshot that illustrates the problem, I can't figure out how to add the css.( (I'm struggling to navigate and work with this bug reporting system…)

    So here's a pared down version of the CSS that further illustrates the problem:

    ------ End CSS ------

    /*<meta />*/

    body
    {
    border: solid 1px #324664;
    margin: 4% 1em 4% 1em;
    padding: 1em 1em 1em 2em;
    line-height: 1.2em;
    font-family: Arial;
    font-size: 0.9em;
    mc-hyphenate: never;
    }

    @media print
    {
    body
    {
    margin: 0em;
    border: none;
    padding: 0in;
    }

    body.coverContactInfo
    {
    font-family: Arial;
    font-size: 9pt;
    color: #009900;
    font-weight: bold;
    line-height: 1em;
    }

    body.header,
    body.footer
    {
    margin: 0em 0em 0em 0em;
    padding: 0em;
    padding: 0in;
    line-height: 1.0em;
    border: none;
    }
    }

    ------ End CSS ------

    If one puts that example into a .CSS file, ,then parses it with Sidekick, Sidekick lists the first body selector (line 3) below a two-line @media \n print section (line 14). The body selector and classes contained within the @Media print section are not listed.

    Cheers, thanks, & hope this helps,
    Riley

    I put your example css in jEdit, it looks fine in the css sidekick. Notice that all the nodes are sorted by name and in your screenshot, the M's are not visible. Could it be that the media section is there in Sidekick, but not where you are expecting it? Maybe try sorting by line number will resolve the problem?

    Flare CSS file not parsed past Media statement

    Thanks for investing the time to look at this issue. I genuinely hope we can sort it out because jEdit and Sidekick are very useful when used in conjunction with Madcap Flare's project files, particularly in this case its CSS files.

    I've uploaded a CSS file "FlareManuals.css . The uploaded file is used in conjunction with Madcap Flare.

    Some of the attribute constructions use non-standard single quotation marks ('), but they are NOT the problem. The problem, which I verified is manifested in the uploaded file is that nothing below the Media statement on line 356 appears in Sidekick.

    Please see also this discussion thread on the Madcap Software forums:

    http://forums.madcapsoftware.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=16864

    The bit about how the Sidekick plugin was initially called to my attention by another user. I then verified the behavior that user described.

    Please do feel free to respond with any questions, comments, rebuttals, etc.

    Cheers, THANKS! again for your help, & have a SUPER weekend,

    Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back to this. I loaded your attached file "FlareManuals.css". If you change line 491 from

    font-size: 1.em;

    to either
    font-size: 1.0em;
    or
    font-size: 1em;

    then the media print block is parsed just fine. Sidekick does say that line 491 is invalid.
