2nd paragraph, after code sample

The sentance "This would make it possible to rewrite goog.string('foobar', 'foo') as 'foobar'.startsWith('foo')" Should instead read: "This would make it possible to rewrite goog.string.startsWith('foobar', 'foo') as 'foobar'.startsWith('foo')"

2nd paragraph

The sentence "Although it uses goog.dom.classes.add and goog.dom.classes.remove, goog.dom.classes.enable does have a return value of its own." has a missing "not". It should read "Although it uses goog.dom.classes.add and goog.dom.classes.remove, goog.dom.classes.enable does *not* have a return value of its own."

Note from the Author or Editor:
Nice catch!

2nd paragraph

The second paragraph says "This id can be used later to abort the request via the manager's setAbort(id, opt_force) method, if desired." The referenced method is in fact "abort(id, opt_force)".

Note from the Author or Editor:
Agreed, thanks for the fix! setAbort(id, opt_force) should be changed to: abort(id, opt_force)

In the top paragraph, "displayInternal()" should be "decorateInternal()"

2nd paragraph after the code section

"When removeChild is called with opt_render set to false..." should be "When removeChild is called with opt_unrender set to false...". The removeChild method's second argument is named opt_unrender.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Reported accurately.

Table 9-1, 6th Event Type

the 6th event, DELAYED_CHANGE does not work. DELAYEDCHANGE is right. perhaps, update for closure seemed to make a change to this event name from DELAYED_CHANGE to DELAYEDCHANGE.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Good catch -- apparently there are several issues with this table: DELAYED_CHANGE should be DELAYEDCHANGE BEFORE_CHANGE should be BEFORECHANGE BEFORE_FOCUS should be BEFOREFOCUS BEFORE_TAB should be BEFORETAB SELECTION_CHANGE should be SELECTION_CHANGE They need to be updated within the chapter in various places, as well.

First line

setModelMode should be setModalMode.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct, where it says: setModelMode/inModalMode should be changed to: setModalMode/inModalMode

Last Soy expression comment

The last Soy expression comment describes that the expression (the first line on the next page) should evaluates to false if the length of the parameter is 2, but in reality it should be the opposite. The expression should evaluates to true if the length of the parameter is 2 instead.

Note from the Author or Editor:
The reporter is correct. We should change the comment to: // Evaluates to true if the length of $rows is 2; otherwise, false

1st paragraph

In Eclipse for a Mac, Command-Shift-T launches the "Open Type" dialog, not Option-Shift-T.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Correct, "Option-Shift-T on a Mac" should be "Command-Shift-T on a Mac".
