fanebrow, use the script above, but run on javascript console: javascript: for (i=1; i<=9; i++) { for (j=1; j<=9; j++) { if (grid[i][j].value == "") { ClearTinySquares(i,j); } } } for (i=1; i<=9; i++) { for (j=1; j<=9; j++) { if (grid[i][j].value != "") { var tmp_value = grid[i][j].value; for (k=1; k<=9; k++) { for (l=1; l<=9; l++) { if (grid[k][l].value == "") { if ((Math.ceil(i/3) == Math.ceil(k/3) && Math.ceil(j/3) == Math.ceil(l/3)) || i == k || j == l) { grid[k][l]["mini"][tmp_value] = -1; } } } } } } } for (i=1; i<=9; i++) { for (j=1; j<=9; j++) { if (grid[i][j].value == "") { for (k=1; k<=9; k++) { if (grid[i][j]["mini"][k] != -1) grid[i][j]["mini"][k] = 1; else grid[i][j]["mini"][k] = 0; } } } } PopulatePuzzle(grid); void(0);

thx soooo much for your reply. i do not have any idea of what javascript console is. I just copied from (i=1 to the end, entered it on the address line but it doen't work like it did on my older computer.............
11:48 am

Go
11:54 am

copy from "javascript" to the end, or copy from my profile. It doesnt work on address line any more. Try to look for javascript console on menu "tools", maybe on option "developer tools"

A better solution. On firefox press Ctrl + Shift + K . It will appear a window. Copy from "javascript" to the end copy and paste after the ">" and press enter

Franebrown: for what it's worth, you can make a bookmark of the autofill code on Firefox and that will work. And then you won't even have to do any cut and pasting once you have a bookmark.
3:38 pm
drwho

Franebrown: if the bookmark idea sounds interesting, I can talk you through it.
3:41 pm
dalebo

If Franebrown doesn't need to walk thru the bookmark deal, i do!
3:43 pm
franebrown

WOW, but I don't have FF !! drwho said "talk"!
3:43 pm
drwho

Dalebo: if you are running FireFox, first look at this website:
3:44 pm
drwho

http://www.brittlefish.com/
3:45 pm
drwho

Franebrown: you don't have FF? What do you have, Mozilla?
3:47 pm
drwho

The bookmark idea works on all browsers as far as I know. It is just a slightly different procedure to create them on different browsers.
3:49 pm
drwho

For those with FF, the brittlefish website has a link that you can bookmark that is the autofill script. For other browsers it will take a little more work.
3:50 pm

Assuming you have created a bookmark for Iron Sudoku, you can right click on it and display its properties. You will be able to modify the Name of the bookmark and the location (or URL) of the the bookmark.
3:51 pm
drwho

If you change the name of the Iron Sudoku bookmark to Iron Sudoku Autofill and then cut and paste the javascript into the location (or URL) field, that should do it.
3:52 pm
drwho

Then you can create a new bookmark for the Iron Sudoku website, since canabalized that for the Ir
3:52 pm

...for the Autofill bookmark.

dalebo

Thanks!
3:58 pm
drwho

You're welcome.
4:12 pm
franebrown

am lost! i got a bookmark with the autofill, then how do i enter it into the game?
4:13 pm
drwho

Click on the bookmark while you are at the Iron Sudoku website.
4:14 pm
drwho

Just like you were using a bookmark to go to any site. The difference is, with this bookmark you don't go anywhere.
4:15 pm
franebrown

nothing happens! perhaps i don't have it completely copied.
4:15 pm
drwho

You must include the beginning "javascript://..."
4:16 pm
drwho

Which browser are you using? Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Exploder, other?
4:17 pm
franebrown

probably explorer i think
4:18 pm
drwho

If so, the title bar at the top of the browser window should say Windows Internet Explorer.
4:20 pm
franebrown

it does
4:21 pm
drwho

Ok, then bringing up the properties on the bookmark gives you a property sheet with 2 tabs, General and Web Document.
4:22 pm
drwho

On the Web Document tab is a URL field where you should fill in this script:
4:22 pm
drwho

javascript: void((function() { if(window) { var js=document.createElement("SCRIPT"); js.src="http://www.brittlefish.com/code/isie
pendChild(js); setTimeout(fn=function() { try { gautofill(); } catch(e) { setTimeout( "fn()", 10 ); } } , 1 ); } } )())
4:26 pm
drwho

There are some unwanted line breaks in that last message. Eliminate all line breaks and spaces.
4:27 pm
drwho

Except leave the space between "var" and "js=...".
4:30 pm
drwho

Just to be thorough, you said it wasn't working. I assume you have not completed the puzzle. When the puzzle is complete, the script does nothing.
4:33 pm
drwho

When you enter a javascript in a bookmark IE complains, but ignore that and tell him it's ok.
5:31 pm
franebrown

somehow the url copy stops at ISIE (about 1/2 of the total autofill ?!?!?? although i copied the entire amt to ()). do i make sense, DR. WHO?
8:28 pm
franebrown

is a bookmark the same as a favorite?
9:16 pm

dr. who is, or nearly is, 50. a new dr. who has been produced, or is to be produced, in the UK (of course), by the man who's done the new Sherlock Holmes series that runs on public television here. check your local listings, but I think it's on Sundays.
