I use Excel 2016 with classic VBA. I do not use .NET.
Due to a windows 10 system crash, I have to reload the XML Custom UI editor for Microsoft Office, for use with MS Office 2016 (Excel).
When I tried to download the app from the web, I got a request to install ,NET which I did not get when I first installed the XML editor, pre-crash.

What is the correct procedure for downloading Custom UI editor for Microsoft Office, for use with  excel 2016?
Which site ought I to download the xml editor from?

Recommendation for an additional more agile freeware XML editor would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kelvin

Hi,

I was looking for some guidance on the approach to a specific user experience and how people would approach it or if someone has done something like this already.

I have a simple PHP script that enters a value from a text box into the database when the 'add' button is clicked or the user hits enter after entering a value (script below).

What I would like to do is allow a user to hit the enter key when they add their record (as it works below), but if the user were to hit the enter key again, within 4 seconds, it would bring up the full record that they could edit. It is because sometimes the user will only add the one value, but sometimes they will add the one value and also want to view and edit some other fields for that record - how would others approach this from a scripting perspective and also side topic on the User Experience side; are there better ways to do this?




$form = "<form action='./dash_hit46.php' method='post'>" .PHP_EOL;
$form .="<input type='text' id='newadd' name='newadd' placeholder='e.g. x'>" .PHP_EOL;
$form .="<input type='submit' value='add' name='add'>" .PHP_EOL;
$form .="</form>";


if ($_POST['add']){
	
	$newadd = $_POST['newadd'];
		if ($newadd){

		
		// Check connection
if ($conn_task2->connect_error) {
    die("Connection failed: " . $conn_task2->connect_error);
} 

$sql = "INSERT INTO main (tsk_name, tsk_person, tsk_user_link)
VALUES ('$newadd', 'me', '$UID')";

if ($conn_task2->query($sql) === TRUE) {

Screen grab - search screenHi All,

I am working on updating a web app that keeps track of a large number of phone number assignments (among other things), I am trying to update the UI so that it doesn't look like it was done in the 90's so I am using bootstrap and jQuery.

I need the end users to be able to search/filter the results from each column, see attached for a redacted likeness for the look/feel I am going with. I didn't want to use separate search buttons to submit the forms, instead I was thinking of having the user just enter the filter terms into the text box and it either updates live or (preferably) updates the view if they press enter.

At the moment I have the screen being generated and the unfiltered results from the database shown in the main view. I have no real idea how to go about using jquery to submit using multiple search fields (or even 1 search field for that matter). So I will need some help pointing me in the right direction and, if you can, some examples.

Hi Experts,
I need help adding a value to my KENDO UI Multiselect Control.  I dynamically load my control by providing a datasource.  I then use the optionLabel and value properties to add a value to my control but it's not working.
I have done this before with KENDOUI Drop Down List control, but I can't seem to get to work for the Multi Select control.

I have attached an image of my code and an image of how I use my control in my UI.

Please let me know what I need to do to make it work.



Thank you in advance,

We have a standard core Windows desktop program using Winforms as the user interface that we modify for individual client’s needs. This program is written in VB.NET and uses multiple forms for displaying test data and allowing the user to interact with the system. The user interface forms use a number of standard controls such as buttons, labels, textboxes, datagrids, option controls (radio buttons) and checkboxes to name a few.  There are also quite a few code modules that handle a variety of tasks.  In addition, the program uses a MS Access database with multiple tables.  The main test display form uses a timer control to allow for periodic data acquisition collection.

I now have a client (US Government) that is requesting that we build our program in such a way that the user interface operates completely in a browser such as Internet Explorer.  Another request they have made is that our application run as a service on a Windows 10 pc.

I am looking for guidance as to how, or even if, this can be accomplished. In addition, if this can be done, how much of our module code will be reusable?

Thanks,
Charlie

I need some help with a MySQL lock wait timeout error.  I'm appending a simple three field table, that insert statement then triggers about 111 functions that populate another table with totals for certain categories of information, that are then displayed to the user in the user interface.  This process used to work without error, but now certain systems are intermittently throwing this error when the display table gets cleared, my insert statement triggers by 111 functions, and the table is repopulated.

If I close the application and restart it the problem will go away for a while.    How can I debug this error?

The actual error message is:

ODBC--insert on a linked table 'triggerdashboard1' failed.

[MySQL][ODBC 5.2(a) Driver][mysqld-5.7.22-log] lock wait timeout exceeded; try restarting transaction (#1205)

I have username and password,
I'd like to authenticate these with the Azure Active Directory in my cloud, and I want it to be done with Microsoft Graph API if possible.
And most important, absolutely no user interface. Assume its all running via command line, or in a script.

So far I got the UI way (using C# but ultimately it will be C++):

Uri authUri = new Uri(string.Format("https://login.microsoftonline.com/{0}/oauth2/v2.0/authorize", TenantId));
try
{
   string data = string.Format("client_id={0}&response_type=code&response_mode=query&scope=user.read&redirect_uri={1}", ClientId, WebUtility.UrlEncode(redirectUrl));
   BrowsePage b = new BrowsePage();
   b.navigate(authUri, data);
   b.Show();

   b.Closed += new EventHandler((object sender, System.EventArgs e) =>
   {
      is_authenticated = true;
   });
}
catch (System.Net.WebException ex)
{
    System.Console.WriteLine("Authorize request: " + ex.Message);
}

I'm new to VMware and ESXi and this question might be very basic. But it seams I can not find a way to do it. I installed ESXi 6.5 on a server and installed 3 Ubuntu 16.0.4. I can access them through VMWare client and ESXi Web using the console but the question is: how can I access these VM using the VMWare Workstation or anything that allow me to access the Ubuntu UI without login to ESXi server?

I even setup static IP for each Ubuntu VM and tried VMware workstation server connect, using IP address and Ubuntu password but it didn't connect. Is there anything I'm missing? Do I need to setup some permissions or open port on ESXi?

Any help appreciate, -Thanks

On the plus side, there's no adds on the Speedtest result from Measurement Lab. I think I may actually prefer it to Ookla lol.

I take your point about searching for speedtest.net and ending up with a top result of measurementlab.net though :-)

It's actually Googles native speed test app, they share your IP and test results with M-lab:

They're literally ranking their own tool higher, than their competitor, for an exact match on their competitor's brand name.

When it comes to building apps, it's more than just writing code. And unfortunately, many people (and companies) forget that. In fact, the raw time it takes to build the app itself is only half the battle.

I'm involved in a software testing group, it's the basic testing of an existing enterprise system. My question is about testing a fairly complex piece of software, that does this and that, and then inserts data into an Oracle table.

How do you test something like this "to the penny"? In order to have an independent test, you'd kind of have to build the same logic separately. Then if the program changes, you'd have to update your testing module.

Nevertheless, this is a system test and not a unit test. But still, to balance "to the penny", this is more than a causal glance at the numbers, "Hey, looks good!"

In my example, the logic retrieves data from Oracle where [such and such] = A, B, or C, and we changed the logic to add D, E, F. I'm inclined to inspect the code as our verification method. But to write a query to test this, I'm thinking I have to build the actual logic from the program.

Just looking for a reasonable approach to this.

I need help with tiff.js! I'm working in a locked down environment, but any advice would be helpful... I'm able to stream the file into my UI (Angular) when referring to a file in a file folder, but I don't know how to send in a bitstream. Documentation seems to be limited. Any advice on how to send a bit stream (for example, a file from any web site) to a UI using tiff.js?

Thanks,

Hi,

Looking to confirm terminology here.

Scrubbed example: Suppose I have two tables for a running stats database.

Runners, containing fields such as name, address, DOB, team affiliation.
Races, containing fields such as runnerID, date, distance.

In what I think is flawed design, the UI for entering race info contains an entry field for the runner's hometown. If you change it from (e.g.) "New York" to "Chicago" in one race, it will display "Chicago" for all races.

IMO, this field should be display-only on the Race info UI and should be modifiable only on the Runner UI.

Now, to my question: Is "normalize" the correct term I should use to convey this concept?

Thanks.

Hi Experts,
I am using a Kendo UI grid in my MVC.Net application.
I have added an onclick event to one of my grid's columns.  The event takes 1 parameter (the value of the BatchID columns).
I also want to pass the value of the FileName column a second parameter.  Is this possible to do using the template of a given column?
If so, how?

You can see my code, and an image of my code below:
    function loadLog() {
        var BatchID = $("#hdnBatchID").val();
        $("#ELog").empty();
        $("#ELog").kendoGrid({
            dataSource: {
                type: "ajax",
                transport: {
                    read: function (options) {
                        $.ajax({
                            type: "POST",
                            url: '@Url.Action("GetLog", "EDI")',
                            dataType: "json",
                            data: JSON.stringify({ "BatchID": BatchID}),
                            contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8',
                            success: function (result) {
                                var data = result.FileDtls;
                                if (data != null)
                                    options.success(result)
                            }
                        })
                    }
                },
                schema: {
                    data: function (response) {
                        return response.FileDtls;
                    }
                },

I'm primarily a LAMP developer looking to collaborate with a new react developer. At this point, I just want to add/off-load some fairly basic UI functionality. What is the minimum environment required to make this work? If reactjs is just another javascript library, at what point is the basic including of ".js" files not enough? What functionality requires a front-end server (for example, node.js) to provide.

SSID name & its password but on my current Note4 (I purchased it as a used set), I could only
enable it but could not locate anything on this Android 6.0.1 anything to change the name & password.

Another query:
I recall there's a setting where the first letter after a fullstop will be auto-capitalized & the standalone
letter "i" will be auto-capitalized: can't seem to find this setting.
