I love the notion that my REST web service could deliver a complete UI to the client, which that the client could then display complete functionality inside a window, on their own site. What's kind of client/server relationship is this?

Is this what Code-On-Demand does?

Does it return HTML/JavaScript/CSS?

What kind of control is needed on the client to receive this? An iframe?

What kind of problems might there be with this kind of interaction?
Hi experts,

I'm using the telerik kendo ui for jquery timepicker



On this example at the link above

If i select a time from the time picker the display on the time picker displays in this format: 1:00PM

Then when i press the GET VALUE button, in the alert window the value for my selected time displays like this:

So when I select 1:00 PM from the timepicker the alert window shows it in this format:

Wed Aug 30 2017 13:00:00 GMT-0700 (Pacific Standard Time)

How do i format the timepicker so when I select 1:00 PM from the timepicker the alert window shows it in this format?:

Hi, My phone is on android 6.0. The notifications sounds have stopped, although it does ring when someone phones. All the sounds I can find (media, alarm, phone ring) are turned up.

Any thoughts? Thanks, we're pretty much newbies.
My problem is with an app that has been written for me, running on a Samsung Tab A, where I cannot get the soft keyboard to pop up anywhere in the app.  A bluetooth barcode scanner is paired, and I also have the Android setting turned on that says "Show on-screen keyboard".   And if I go into the "Memo" app that came with the tablet--similar to WordPad--I can scan barcodes into it, or I can touch the screen and the soft keyboard pops up.  Same with Chrome...if I touch the bar where you key in the URL, it pops up the keyboard like it's supposed to--and I suppose I could scan data into that same line.

But in this app written for me, I can scan in data with no problem, but I can't get the soft keyboard to pop up.   The developer  blames it all on me, insisting there is nothing he can do.  He keeps saying that there is nothing in his code that would suppress the soft keyboard.  But he won't tell me whether there is anything that will "activate" the keyboard.

I'm not at all familiar with this C# code written for a Xamarin environment.  But one thing I'm wondering is this: On an Android device, if you touch a textbox, is the soft keyboard supposed to pop up by default--or do you have to include code to tell it to do so?  I'm wondering if maybe he is missing some code that will tell the program to pop up the keyboard.

I do understand that the Settings need to be set up right, as outlined above, but they are--as evidenced by programs such as Chrome and that Memo app allowing…
See above. My Outlook calendar - on my Android phone - using the 3 day view shows up as 8/24 instead of 24/8....I had changed the settings in the Office 365 admin to show up as dd/mm but doesn't seem to transfer across.....
How can I make the show desktop menu stay at bottom of a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone?

Currently I have to push up at the bottom of the Samsung Galaxy S8 screen to make this menu appear. I would like for it to stay at the bottom of the phone screen at all times.

when i switch on my moto 4g plus android plus  it says loudly "hello moto" then some music while it is starting. How to mute these disturbing sounds on start up. what settings i have to change or that?

please advise
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.
I have been supporting for several years now.

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

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
files, this feature in Chrome may allow the same
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:

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Windows.Forms
#Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing`

$MainForm = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Form
$MainForm.Text = "User Selection Form"
$MainForm.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(650,300)
$MainForm.StartPosition = "CenterScreen"

$OKButton = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Button
$OKButton.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Point(10,220)
$OKButton.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(75,23)
$OKButton.Text = "OK"

$MainForm.AcceptButton = $OKButton

I am using keno ui grid for angularjs keno grid in our project and am  new to kendo . I am getting data from API similar to below JSON Data and need to bind this data to Kenod Grid basically there will be no header fields / columns .Just simply bind data to grid.

["cell1  cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5 cell6",
 "cell1  cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5 cell6",
 "cell1  cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5 cell6",
 "cell1  cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5 cell6",
 "cell1  cell2 cell3 cell4 cell5 cell6",

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.

Why might it not be getting added?

I don't see any Javascript errors in the console... : (

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

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.

I just installed Redhat linux and Fedora linux on Windows 10 VM, but once installed it, it seems login in command mode. how to enable the Linux UI mode for me to play around by UI ?
