Interface implemented by objects capable of fixing up strings into URIs
[scriptable, uuid(773081ac-9f81-4bdb-9e7a-5e87b4361f09)]
interface nsIURIFixup : nsISupports

Constants

 No fixup flags. */
const unsigned long FIXUP_FLAG_NONE = 0
 Allow the fixup to use a keyword lookup service to complete the URI.
 The fixup object implementer should honour this flag and only perform
 any lengthy keyword (or search) operation if it is set.
const unsigned long FIXUP_FLAG_ALLOW_KEYWORD_LOOKUP = 1
 Tell the fixup to make an alternate URI from the input URI, for example
 to turn foo into www.foo.com.
const unsigned long FIXUP_FLAGS_MAKE_ALTERNATE_URI = 2

Methods

 Converts an internal URI (e.g. a wyciwyg URI) into one which we can
 expose to the user, for example on the URL bar.

 @param  aURI       The URI to be converted
 @return nsIURI     The converted, exposable URI
 @throws NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI when the exposable portion of aURI is malformed
 @throws NS_ERROR_UNKNOWN_PROTOCOL when we can't get a protocol handler service
         for the URI scheme.
nsIURI createExposableURI(in nsIURI aURI)
 Converts the specified string into a URI, first attempting
 to correct any errors in the syntax or other vagaries. Returns
 a wellformed URI or nsnull if it can't.

 @param aURIText    Candidate URI.
 @param aFixupFlags Flags that govern ways the URI may be fixed up.
nsIURI createFixupURI(in AUTF8String aURIText, in unsigned long aFixupFlags)
 Converts the specified keyword string into a URI.  Note that it's the
 caller's responsibility to check whether keywords are enabled and
 whether aKeyword is a sensible keyword.
