#377 gbrowse_syn javascript broken

Gbrowse (196)

The JavaScript functionality seems to be broken in the gbrowse_syn that is distributed with GBrowse 2.37; specifically:

1. The +/- boxes don't work unless the toggle.js from GBrowse 1.x is copied to the js/ directory
2. gbrowse_syn is trying to include yahoo-dom-event.js, despite its lack of existence in GBrowse 2.37
3. rubber-banding doesn't work
4. balloon menus for features that are defined in the species-specific ".conf" files don't work, at least using AJAX; e.g., this worked with gbrowse_syn in GBrowse 1.7:

balloon click = sub {
my $feature = shift;
return 'url:/gb2/gbrowse_details/gmax1.01'
. '?remote=glyma1;name=' . $feature->name;

    Any progress on this feature? I need it urgently. I'm willing to fix it. Any hint would be helpful where to look at.

    Is it still broken in 2.49? I have no idea if Sheldon has worked on it since 2.37, but I seem to recall that it was working the last time I talked to him.

    I'm not sure if it's working in 2.49. We're currently running 2.45, so I won't be able to test until after we've upgraded.

    Nathan, does it work in 2.45?

    I'm running 2.49 and it does not work, neither balloon hover nor balloon click. I'll check the source code tonight. Any hint would be very helpful.

    Hi all, I'm very sorry I dropped this ball. I'll get on it this week!
