Dreamweaver: Please use only numeric entires for values

Dreamweaver: Please use only numeric entires for values

Hello,

I use Dreamweaver CS4 (Master Collection) and try desperately to fix a problem related to displaying accurately french accents (é, è, à, ...) in the charts provided in POWERSTORE 2 from WEBASSIST (Yes, I'm localizing the US version into a FRENCH edition). These accented caracters are not dispalyed at all if I enter them as is (é, è, à, a.s.o.) into the charts using the XML Editor (latest edition of Dynamic WebCharts in use !!). Even if I use the HTML "é" a.s.o. these caracters are displayed as "?" marks instead !

I guess that the WA people should collaborate with both teams (POWERSTORE 2 and DYNAMIC WEBCHARTS) and let the communitiy know what to do to get rid of this frustrating problem. It may be a minor thing but I don't see what !

Furthermore using the EDIT IN WIZARD button while clicking on the <param name="movie" value="../DynamicWebCharts/open-flash-chart.swf?data=../DynamicWebCharts/Data/Products_Chart_dataparser1.php?<?php echo (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])?"GET=".str_replace("&","§",$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']):'');?>" /> in the file Products_Chart.php (in POWERSTORE 2, of course), Dreamweaver signals the message mentioned in the title of this posted thread (Dreamweaver: Please use only numeric entires for value). This popup message makes your life tricky while trying to edit the charts.

Please help me to understand what is going wrong. Maybe I did something wrong !

Many thanks

I having a little difficulty trying to reproduce this issue. If you can please post back and include specific steps that I can take to get the result you are getting. With the same steps and results I will better be able to help troubleshoot the problem.

As for the error you are getting when you edit in wizard when selecting the param I'm not able to get this to occur on my end. I have tried it a few different ways and each time I'm able to edit the chart in the wizard without issue. Are there any other steps you are taking when you get this error? Does this error occur for you each and every time you attempt to edit with the wizard when you have the code selected?

Look into my code please...

Hello Mr MITTERMAN,

Here is the link to my new development site: admin

In the menu use the option UTILISATEURS (users) and click on GRAPHIQUES (charts).

This points to the following file: users_Chart.php
which in turn uses : users_Reports_data1.php
When editing the <object classID...> from within users_Chart.php with XMLEditor (ver. 1.4), and using an "é" (acute accented e) in line 116 of file users_Reports_data1.php (see below)
<legend size="12" color="#272b4b">Total nouveaux enregistrés</legend>
the chart fails to complete
If I don't use an "é" in line 116, the chart completes normally. (see line 117 commented <legend size="12" color="#272b4b">Total nouveaux enregistres</legend> )

I tried the same, replacing the "é" with &eacute; and similar display problems occur.

Finally I searched on the net and found something that I did not try at this moment:

The suggestion consists in using what follows:

In XHTML, the language is declared inside the <html> tag as follows:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="fr" xml:lang="fr">
...
</html>

So, could it be useful to add this type of language tag into line 100 of the code (file: users_Reports_data1.php) so that FLASH interprets the french accented caracters correctly ?

Please try it out and tell me what you changed in the code and in which files, so that I can download them from my development site.

Many thanks

Dan

After doing some testing, I was able to determine that the chart will display the characters correctly if they are encoded using the values listed on this site:
utf-8.html
