Description Dave Babbitt 2005-09-02 13:16:00 UTC
When initally editing a section or page, the text area and "Save page" and "Show
preview" buttons are what the user is focusing on. It would be nice if the page
automatically scrolled the buttons into view.

After the wpPreview submit button is addHTMLed in /includes/EditPage.php (line
548?), it would be nice if this code was added:

		if ( 'preview' != $formtype) {
			$wgOut->addHTML( "<script type='text/javascript'>
	/* Try to scroll the wpPreview button into view */
	if(document.getElementById) {var target = document.getElementById('wpPreview');}
	else {var target = document.all.wpPreview;}
	if(window.showModalDialog && window.clipboardData && window.createPopup) {
		var range = target.createTextRange();
	else {
		var buttonOffset = target.offsetTop + target.offsetParent.offsetTop;
		var buttonScroll = document.body.scrollTop;
		if((buttonOffset + target.clientHeight) > (buttonScroll +
document.body.clientHeight)) {
		else if(buttonOffset < buttonScroll) {target.scrollIntoView(true);}
</script>" );

This would be generally confusing, and likely to obscure titles, messages, etc.
Causing things to jump about unexpectedly is rarely a good idea.
