Is possible?

I'm beginning to develop an application using Javascript, and have had no success using the XMLHttpRequest object. In searching the forums here, I found a mention that the XMLHttpRequest .open will fail if the Javascript is not on the same domain as the server. Does that mean that Javascript cannot be used to access the Toodledo API?

I haven't tested this lately, but there was something that toodledoo did recently to support cross domain scripting that might have an impact on your effort. The Toodledo Firefox extension is written in Javascript, but it is served from toodledoo's own server so it doesn't have to worry about cross domain scripting.

As far as I know, XMLHttpRequest cannot work across domains, so I don't think it is possible. You'll need to create a bridge using some other programming language.

FYI, for anyone interested, my question was related to using Javascript in WebOS (the Palm Pre). WebOS does allow their XMLHttpRequest (and, by extension, Prototype Ajax requests) calls to work across domains. Anyone developing for WebOS can use the Toodledo API even though the coding is done in Javascript.
