Further information


  • Most functions fail silently when an error occurs. The logserver (if running) will contain information about it, but - unlike in other browser - no exception is thrown.
  • The EVE client is a 32-bit program, so the IGB cannot handle integers that are outside the clients scope. If 64-bit numbers must be passed, make sure to pass them as strings.
  • Most functions do not differ between string numbers and integer numbers.

Ship DNA


Ship DNA is a string of typeIDs and quantity values to describe a ship and a fitting. Using the CCPEVE.showFitting() function, this fitting can be displayed in-game. Layout:

<shipTypeId> ':' [<typeId> ';' <quantity> ':']* ':'

Ships, modules and charges/drones are defined by their typeID, which can be found in the invTypes table of the static data export. Any item, except the ship hull, must always have a quantity value (a number preceeded by a literal semicolon), and separated by a literal colon from the next item:


The order of items in DNA doesn't matter, as long as they are listed after the hull. The game client will strip any bogus entries in ship DNA, and attempt to make as much sense out of it, as possible. Space in the DNA string are allowed, though strongly discouraged for compatibility reasons. It is important to keep in mind, that fittings are not validated, eg.: it is possible to show a rookie ship with modules that can only be fitted on capital ships, or a fitting with amount of modules, that exceed the available module or turret/launcher slots.

All functions in the section Functions that require trust will fail silently, unless the user trusts the site. Trust can be requested using the


function. This function opens a window were the user has to confirm or decline the request for trust. Once confirmed, a green tick in the lower right corner of the IGB is displayed and the functions work. As a parameter a fully qualified domain name must be given. This can be an URL, a domain only and can contain wildcards. If only a domain is given, IGB automatically adds a wildcard to grant trust to all pages on this domain.


 CCPEVE.requestTrust('http://wiki.eve-id.net/IGB_Javascript_Functions'); // Request trust for this page only
 CCPEVE.requestTrust('http://wiki.eve-id.net'); // Request trust for all pages on the wiki
 CCPEVE.requestTrust('http://wiki.eve-id.net/*'); // Request trust for all pages on the wiki
 CCPEVE.requestTrust('http://*.eve-id.net'); // Request trust for all pages on all subdomains of eve-id.net 


  • All methods that open the map, sometimes fail at the last step. All windows are minimized, the map panel is shown, but the map itself is not loaded. A repeated call to the same function does not change anything. If the map is already open, they work as expected.
  • IGB contains a CCPEVE.showSovereignty method, that does not seem to be implemented. No action is shown in the client and the logserver shows an uncaught exception.
