Hi Team,

Have made the popover which appears when the user clicks on the button, the user can scroll wherever the user wants.

The issue I am facing when I click on popover again it resets its position that means that popover appears from its default location rather appearing from the location where it was left earlier.

Enclosing the running code example, please suggest?

Click on 'POpover' button brings popover, you can drag and drop the popover wherever you want but the moment you click the button again it resets its position whereas expected is it should appear from the last location.

I have a question for Notes/Domino

There is a DB which stores huge Notes e-mails. The default WEB UI for search is very poor and I need to customize the UI which can input the next search conditions by UI.

- mail subject,
- send/receive times
- search only mails which have attachments
- etc.

I guess I create a query with the inputted values in the UI, but I am not sure how to submit the query and how to render the results.

Is there any sample DB or the detailed steps to implement the functionality?

Hello All,

A project has come up to on demand scan a uploaded document for viruses in our site.
 
Some info on our site:
C#, MVC system with razor templates and xml configurations for custom UI.
AWS hosted web server and db.
Currently the users can attach documents to various items in our system.  Those documents are stored as varbinary in the db tables.


It was suggested to me to look into Clamav.net, but I'm wondering what the best solution (tool) other than Clamav, would be for scanning of a file that goes directly into a db table and not a folder structure on the server?  If it is necessary to save the file in a folder structure in order to do the scanning then we can change the system to do that.

Thank you for your time and suggestions.

Sincerely,
Ex

2nd day on the job and noticed a cert was expiring tomorrow.  This morning I tried to renew it via GUI and everything seemed good.  When attempting to open Outlook, getting the attached error and error "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site".  

Looking at the cert, it had the mail.domain.com but missing autodiscovery.mail.com.  Speaking to a friend, they seemed to think I needed to get an external signed cert.  I did but still receiving the error.  I have bounced the server and made sure that https was binding to the new cert in IIS manager.  Outlook and web UI seem to still be pointing at the self signed cert.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi All,

Ok I have a Function that needs to run in the background from the Same UI as the rest of the Program. I am using Visual Studio 2017 and VB.net.

I have been able to get most of the Function working in the background using the Backgroundworker control. This is a Very large function and it DOES need to periodically output some data to a TEXTBOX during its operation.

I know that I need to setup DELEGATES to workaround this Cross-Thread problem but I am only partially successful in my endeavors.  With the Delegate that I created I can only write to one TEXTBOX but not another..

So in my research I find that there is a method of turning off  the Checking of this condition.. I see that the option that I must set is 'Control.CheckForIllegalCrossThreadCalls. I understand that this is not recommended  but my  problem is that I Can Not find this Option to set...

Also if I try to use the 'INVOKE' method I cannot find the 'InvokeRequired' method which I believe is the reason  why my DELEGATE is only partially successful.

I would be grateful for help in either finding these options or in getting my delegates to work properly.
Obviously I will provide as much of my code as you wish  to see upon request.

Thanks in advance

I'm building a binary classifier in weka. It will be used to check using AI whether the strings in test data belong to Swing UI or not.

Example
@relation SwingComponents

@attribute DataTypeText string
@attribute SwingComponent {yes,no}

@data

JPanel, yes
FooBar,no
JButton, yes

Currently, I'm experimenting with StringToWordVector filter and then, for example,  Naive Bayes. I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly. The goal is to pass some test data and receive a classified set, or in other words a Swing UI set.

Test example
@relation SwingComponents

@attribute DataTypeText string
@attribute SwingComponent {yes,no}

@data

JPanel, ?
SomeOtherFooBar, ?
JButton, yes

If possible, please instruct regarding the filters that I should use and the algorithm.

The result this should produce will be something like JPanel, yes  SomeOtherFooBar, no  JButton, yes

I'll use this in an app that scans all lines of a .java file and determines which lines belong to the UI. This allows to later copy all UI lines from the .java file into a new file. We are doing this to extract relevant Swing UI components without extracting any application logic.

I have the following winform.

Essentially I need to refactor this code as I am getting some bad behavior..please assist.

1) I was hoping to put a default value in each of these two combo boxes...something like select....basically some words so it doesnt default to a real value.

2)  The form combo box updates the request dropdown.  
I need to better validate this ....and also the records just append on each call of the selected index change.  
I know somewhere i need to  clear this object.

3)  It would be cool to have the option on the request ID combo to auto type in such a way that it gets filled by the selection of the form combobox and then you can auto type to get the results faster in the request combo box.

please help and any other best practices I would gladly appreciate.

How can I change the security in Outlook 365 so that it does not put PowerPoint attachments in read only mode?

Good morning,

A strange one, but I have a question regarding a problem to which I already have a working solution!! The issue is that the solution I have just seems a little "over complex" for the simple problem it aims to solve!! I am sure that there must be a simpler solution to the problem that I am just not seeing. I will have to describe the situation in generic terms as I have been advised not to give too much "information" away. Say no more.

The system we have is manufacturing widgets, and the manufacturing planner assigns "jobs" to the manufacturing machines throughout the day. The planning for jobs can change constantly throughout the day as priorities change, the only constant being that once a job is being actively made, it cannot be interrupted so stays as the "active" job on the machine until complete.

The screen on the machine shows the operators a list of planned jobs, displaying a maximum of ten jobs including the active job at the top of the list. The displayed list indicates the jobs where planning has changed (based on the planning state as at the commencement of the current job). Due to the nature of the planning and its ever changing state, the operators need to be kept updated of planning changes - so the software interrogates the planned jobs list for the machine on a regular basis (currently every 5 minutes - this is currently deemed sufficient and manufacturing jobs run for an hour or more depending on quantities). Due to the database …

Hello experts,

I created some customized buttons which call procedures located personal.xlsb template.
personal.xlsb.pngpersonal.xlsb-2.pngI was wondering:
1-How to use it on another computer. I tried to transfer personal.xlsb to xlstart folder however buttons and tabs are not available.
2-How to modify them effectively when I rename them or if I want to change their logos. I heard about Custom UI Editor For Microsoft Office.

If you have recommendations or advices on that, please let me know.

This is similar to a question I posted the other day, only this time, I want to be able to do the same thing with Browsers. Google hasn't been of much help.

I'm testing a variety of (5) browsers I plan to eventually do a review on, but in order to test them properly and to my own satisfaction, I need to keep switching the default Browser in Windows 10 using the GUI method in Default Apps. Too many clicks needed for my liking.

Is there a simpler way you know of that I could do the same thing with just a couple of mouse clicks, like the solution John found for me in my other question?

Ie: For my microphones, all I need to do to change the default Microphone to use is with one click of my mouse as shown below and it's done:

Example of the type of solution I'm looking for.
Similar to the above, I'd like to have a menu where I could just click and select any browser I want to make it the default browser in Windows 10 with one or two clicks.

Please note that I am heavily challenged when it comes to any type of coding, scripting or automating. A programmer I am not.

Using a GUI I can figure out how to do just about anything on Windows, but if I need to make changes via Powershell or similar, please include detailed instructions on how, where and why I need to enter any script(s) to achieve my end goal.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Andrew

I'm confused about archiving. When I swipe to delete an episode I see it gets archived (I believe).

Seems to me I don't have any need for archiving. What's the thinking behind this feature?

Is there any merit to my archiving episodes? Where do they even go?

And, is there any way to disable it?

Thanks!

I have two Microphones connected to my Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) box.

One is built into my Web Cam ( Microsoft LifeCam Cinema ) and what I've been using up until now.

Recently I purchased a much higher quality USB Microphone that does a significantly better job at filtering out background noise.

Sometimes though, I still want to use the built-in Microphone in my LifeCam Cinema WebCam.

I know how to make the change via UI methods, but it takes too many clicks for my liking, so wondered if there is a simpler way to achieve the desired result?

Change Default Mic in Windows 10 using a script of some type.
So... what I need is a batch file, script or Powershell command way of telling Windows 10 which Microphone to use by default. Something I can double-click on my desktop which will result in all of the needed changes to be made to make one or the other Mic the default in Windows 10.

Please note that I am heavily challenged when it comes to any type of coding, scripting or automating. A programmer I am not.

Using a GUI I can figure out how to do just about anything on Windows, but if I need to make changes via Powershell or similar, please include detailed instructions on how, where and why I need to run the script(s), and if doing so will have any negative effect on Windows 10 security.  It's why I stay away from using PowerShell unless an expert in it tells me exactly what to do and why! <g>

With all that said, can anyone offer a solution?

Regards, Andrew

Is there are way to send update tasks to the MySQL server that releases the user interface to move onto other things?

I'm trying to improve the performance of my application when a user makes a change that effects data in other tables, as it triggers a handful of various update and delete queries.

I thought I could use the trigger capability in the MySQL table, and simply append a temporary  table with needed parameters, and then have the trigger  run though the list of queries that use those parameters and all of this would run on the server and the UI would be released so the user could navigate to their next task instead of waiting for all this to finish processing.

I know the Events I set up in MySQL can run in the background and run a list of queries at a set interval that don't effect the UI, so I'm thinking there must be a  way to trigger a similar capability.

So far I'm still getting the spinning cursor wheel while the UI waits for the trigger queries to run.  I need more speed Scotty!!!  What am I missing?

The UI is MS Access using VBA and passthrough queries with MySQL ODBC connections to the MySQL server.

And I'm using Navicat for MySQL for all my MySQL development.

Thanks!

New Samsung Android phone is no longer updating contacts from Outlook.  
Prior to switching to a new phone, whenever I added a contact into my Outlook on my computer, the information would update in the contacts on my phone. Now that I have setup outlook on my phone, I cannot get the updates to show up when I add or change a contact in my Outlook on my desktop.  
I did notice that the new Outlook mobile version (which comes with my O365 subscription), does not have an actual contact section.  
I'm running Outlook 2016 on the desktop.
The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7.

I have using UI on getbootstrap.com
and integrate with the following form wizard
https://www.w3schools.com/howto/tryit.asp?filename=tryhow_js_form_steps

Everything is working fine except the following validateform() on w3school.com.
My question is: inside of validateform(), how can I call the bootstrap basic client validation? Because all of the my input html 5 is under bootstrap, and I want to take an advantage of using it instead of re-code everything manually.


function validateForm() {
        // This function deals with validation of the form fields
        var x, y, i, valid = true;
        x = document.getElementsByClassName("tab");
        y = x[currentTab].getElementsByTagName("input");
        // A loop that checks every input field in the current tab:
        for (i = 0; i < y.length; i++) {
            // If a field is empty...
            //if (y[i].value == "") {
                // add an "invalid" class to the field:
            //    y[i].className += " invalid";
                // and set the current valid status to false
            //    valid = false;
           // }
        }
        // If the valid status is true, mark the step as finished and valid:
        if (valid) {
            document.getElementsByClassName("step")[currentTab].className += " finish";
        }
        return valid; // return the valid status
