CCPEVE.showContract broken?

I am currently trying to write an application that allows you to see the contract status from ingame and outside of the game.
The problem I currently have is the fact that "CCPEVE.showContract" does not seem to work.
(Window does not open ingame)
I already made an "alert" to test if the params are correct.

The syntax i use is the one described in the documentation:

Sadly javascript-debugging is not really possible in the ingame browser (no error loggings and no error output at all).

Hope someone can help me,



If you have a google account you can already test it, but it is still in beta:

To stop the system from getting flooded it only updates the contract-status once per hour.
(means you will not see the contracts once you "registered" ... thats why there is a timer running on top atm.)

The reason i want to build something like that is that somebody probably would want to see if a special item was sold by contract while they have no access to the game.
Later i will add some more filters to it ;)
If you have any other ideas you can also send me a little private message.

It says solarsystemID, not stationID, maybe try that. I've seen this method working yesterday so its not broken.

Wow thanks, looks like i mixed it up then Lol
Thanks for response, i will try to modify it.
Sad thing is that /char/Contracts.xml.aspx only returns the station id :(
Guess i need to create a table for it to get the systemid from the station id.

Alright i fixed it.
Sadly i now have another problem.
I get the following error:

Failed getting contract information.

Does anybody know why this happens?
The syntax i'm using is:[KEYID]&vCode=[VCODE}&contractID=[CONTRACTID]

Maybe its because its a buy-contract, but in the description they only said that it would not work for courier contracts.

Tested with normal sell contract, but still get the same error, anybody has any ideas?
