Hello everybody!

Short question:

Is there a way to programmatically set preferences in XULRunner, like pref("somepref","somevalue") or user_pref("somepref","somevalue") in the different pref.js files of Mozilla?

What we especially would like to set is spellchecker.dictionary. Ideally this could be set at runtime, so that the next page, which is rendered, can be spellchecked with the new dictionary set.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
Markward

Hi Markward,

The only way to do this would be via JavaXPCOM. For info on JavaXPCOM
see http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#howusejavaxpcom . For an example
of using XPCOM to change some mozilla preference values see
http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.swt.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.swt/Eclipse%20SWT%20Mozilla/common/org/eclipse/swt/browser/Mozilla.java?id=v3821b#n2295
(the code to do the equivalent in JavaXPCOM would follow the same
general steps but would be more straight-forward).

HTH,
Grant
