I used this Note 5 for 2+ years with a great experience.  Great phone - large bright screen 5.7" 2560x1440 pixels, fast 4GB RAM and 32GB Storage, 16mp camera.   All good except.. battery life is terrible.  Time for an upgrade.  
Should I stick with Samsung and go with Note 8 or what would be other recommendations?  

Thanks in advance.
I am considering using Devexpress MVC for a simple table-based project.  A colleague says not to do it because it will increase the need for custom UI coding.  Does anyone have experience with whether using Devexpress MVC controls increased or decreases the need for custom UI coding?
I have been watching these videos:

The videos refer to several tools, that are not free.

I was wondering what other free tools are out there that can do the same job as the ones described in the video:
- Exploratory testing and registering test cases and bugs directly with screenshots, action logs and video capture.
- Load testing
- Web performance testing
- Automated UI testing.
- Similar solution to Microsoft Test Manager

My projects are in ASP .Net MVC with C# as backend, and the tools suggested need to work with that technology.

Now I'm looking to find the best sources for training other techs I work with on how to support Box.com.

What are the best sources for this type of training?
I have an angular UI application of two pages where one page takes user input details and insert the values on click of button into MySql DB through an API call and redirects to second page where details entered in first page must be displayed to user.

After inserting the values in first page, the values are stored in DB where it is recorded in php logs but in second page when I want to show the details of user entered, data row doesn't exist in DB.

The insert query is a single row insert and is not under any transaction. However even after implementing transactions same issue persist.

I have records of mysql logs also where there is only the insert log but no delete logs for the same inserted values.

I have kept a count of data before inserting and after inserting, the count got reduced by one when I have made a second API call to get details to second page to display the user details and throwing an exception of 400 bad request.

We are concerned with using the latest Chrome due to data loss/leakage
via whatsapp sidebar : does this feature enable files upload/downloading?

is there any way to remove/disable it & how to go about doing this?

If it's a data loss risk & not possible to disable, which previous latest
version of Chrome doesn't have this sidebar?  I'm thinking of using
the older version & hopefully Google still release patches for it

I just thought that since Whatsapp on my Android allows us to attach

Hi all

The UI for my react app has a main section (takes up most of the screen) and a left hand side pane.
I'm using 3 separate ag-grids:
-One as the main one on the main screen holding the important data.
-the other two are in the left hand side pane (the less important grids for assistance/statistic holding).

This left pane uses (two) tabs, i.e. click on one tab to see one ag-grid, click the other tab to see the other ag-grid

For the tab functionality, i used npm to install the NPM react-bootstrap-tabs node module.

Recently I managed to set up one of the left pain ag-grids to hold filtering information from the main grid.
This was quite a hassle since the grids were effectively grand-sibling components which needed to communicate. without touching AG-grid src code, I had to set up ag-grid callbacks to take note of the filtering data from the main ag-grid, send it up to the grandparent component of my app, and then send it back down to the other grand child ag-grid component.

It all works however I noticed a glitch. When initially loading the whole page, the first tab in the left pane is active by default. The left pane ag-grid that holds the filter information is in the second tab. What I want is to click on this second tab, and see filter data be populated automatically as i filter the main ag-grid. However when I have the second tab active and i filter the main ag-grid (i.e. adding filter …
I'm a seasoned software developer, but my experience with Java extends only a few years. Last year I embarked on creating a GUI for one of our company-specific data stores. I chose JavaFX as the GUI framework.
To position user controls onto a screen, the most appropriate widget for one of my layouts appeared to be a GridPane. JavaFX has one built in, but I prefer the wrapper with the same name, that is part of JFXtras.
In this GridPane, I placed a generic Label control. It is meant to receive texts of varying lengths. And when it receives a text larger than can fit, I want that Label to grow in size, and make the entire Scene Graph (i.e. GridPane, Scene and Stage) grow with it.
Thus far I have set properties and invoked methods that looked like they would allow for that, to no avail.
How can I make this happen?

While designing for a sign-up process, I'd like to be able to show a progress indicator dictating how many steps are in the process, total. Right now, I'm using little dots across the top of the screen that "fill in" as you're making progress during the page-by-page sign-up.

My question is in regard to a particular step that could extend or contract the number of remaining steps because a step is added or taken away. It feels weird that, in the middle of a 4-step process, a choice made on Step 2 would then show 5 dots on the following page.

Is there an alternative method to make this feel less strange? Or is the idea for a progress indicator made null because of how this sign-up process works?
As a junior, I'm a bit new to front end programming (crammed learning JS/other languages/NPM/NodeJS/etc within three months for my current role) so apologies if what I say doesn't make sense.

I've helped to build a UI for an application with the use of NPM/Node JS. The application stores data on a UNIX server. The UI accesses the data on the server (https://myhostname:8090/blah/blah) and presents the results with a nice UI. With the help of GIT, I've managed to do move all the src UI code onto the UNIX server. The purpose is for automation

While a specific file (in my UI code) specifies the UNIX server configuration, I've used NPM to build a bundle.js (Which bundles all the JS files into a single file) file. I move this bundles.js along with the index.html and CSS styling files to an appropriate directory in order to use Maven to build a JAR file. And with a start/stop server script to run the process to run  the code, I can just enter the UNIX hostname/port number in my browser window in order to access the UI and data. This all works.

However. I now need to generalise the server configuration in my bundle.js file as well as properties file on server side such that I'm not hard coding server configuration anywhere (meaning I can deploy the UI on any server with no issue). i.e. playing with "localhost" instead of the actual server hostname etc.

I want to try my best, but I need to acknowledge that I have no real server configuration experience and hence need a …
Hello all,

I'm working on a PowerShell script to modify users in Active Directory.  I would like to put a UI on the script to allow the users to first select the target users from the current users in out Active Directory.  I was able to generate the dialog box, use the input from one box in another box, but I wasn't able to return the value that the user running the program selected in the list box to the main script.  I'm pretty good with PowerShell, but I'm new to the UI part of it.  I was able to get two sample scripts working and modified them to return information both typed into a text box and selected from a list box, but combining the two has become difficult, and I know that the answer is probably right in front of me. If someone could show me the light I would much appreciate it.



Here is the script as it is now:

$OKButton.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Point(10,220)
$OKButton.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(75,23)

New to Angular.  I am making my way through a book titled "Pro AngularJS" by Adam Freeman.

If you look at this screenshot while I was debugging the "Add" TO DO item functionality you can see that the new to do item is showing up in the items array, but the web page UI is not updating with the new item.

angular push
Why might it not be getting added?

        var model = {
            user: "Adam"

        var todoApp = angular.module("todoApp", []);

        todoApp.run(function ($http) {
            $http.get("todo.json").then(function (data) {
                model.items = data;});

Hi Experts,

I have below codes using asp repeater and jdatatable. As you can see it return table UI with column phone, Direction, and message looks like below

Phone No, Direction, Msg
(111)222-1111, Outbound, asdfasdf
(111)222-1111, Inbound, 23423423asdfasdf
(111)222-1111, Outbound, 223434234dfasdf
(222)222-1234, Outbound, 23asdfasjdfasjdfjdfs
(222)222-1234, Inbound, 2131231231312

In the UI, I hope to see. Is it possible?

Console interfaces also use horizontal scrolling pretty well. I can't remember if Sony or Microsoft were first with that one but now they all do it (as do Kodi / Plex / Fire TV / Apple TV / etc).

The key to the change being ok really seems to be that mouse with scrollwheel isn't necessarily the common input hardware for a lot of these cases. When your main way to scroll is a vertical scrollwheel, then the UX needs to work well with that.

But with the prevalence of touch and directional controls (like on a remote or gamepad), horizontal scrolling is much more accessible. The use of touch has even made old rules like "avoid lots of clicking to get to the destination" less of a big deal, since the UX friction of touch is way lower than moving a mouse and clicking.
Are there any good products, sites or services that can be used to basically develop a prototype app for planning purposes and relaying information to others like graphics, dev etc.? Something that can be used as a kind of project manager to build a app.

So lets say you have a idea for a app but want to do a rough, not flashy, draft of the layout and mock actions for buttons etc. So if you tap here then this screen pops up type of thing so not actually coding the app but just some type of WYSIWYG interface to help test out the flow of the design before spending time and money on the actual coding and graphics etc.
