UI stands for User Interface and UX for User Experience. While there are key differences between the two, both concern the design of how humans interact with computer systems and software.

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?

In my older Note2 (which is now broken), I was able to change my Tethering or Mobile Hotspot
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.

I want to add a new task and associated group to the backstage of PowerPoint using the fluent UI XML method, although the same issue occurs for Excel and Word.

Using the Microsoft-published list of idMso control IDs I've established that the structure of the tab I'm interested in as as shown below:

PowerPoint backstage, Export tab
So to append a new task control to the end of the collection of 5 built-in tasks, this is the XML I'm using:

<customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2009/07/customui">
		<!-- Office Export Tab -->
		<tab idMso="Publish2Tab">
				<taskFormGroup idMso="PublishGroup">
					<category idMso="FileTypes">
						<task id="myTask" label="My Task">
							<group id="myGroup" label="My Group"/>

Open in new window

But when loading the project containing this same XML in PowerPoint, Excel or Word, I get this error:

Failed to find Office control by ID
ID: PublishGroup

I know the control ID is correct, even it it's swapped regarding Microsoft's normal naming convention because if I try taskFormGroup idMso="GroupPublish", I get the expected unknown error message instead:

Unknown Office control ID: GroupPublish

So do I have the XML structure wrong?
How Remove  the border in RadToolBar in UI for WPF?

If I want to use a lock in my UI ribbon as an image, I know access has this kind of image how do I complete the referencing in the ribbon here ( imageMso = “Lock”):

<?xml version=“1.0” encoding=“utf-8”?> <!-- This is a comment in the ribbon’s XML -->
<customUI xmlns=“http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui” onLoad=“onRibbonLoad”>
 <ribbon startFromScratch=“true”>

Instead of having my ribbon looking blank or without a single image, I can return some of the images already provided in Ms access as part of the application. For example the lock above can represent login menu.

I need to be able to import a csv file into an access table while allowing the user to browse to the file.  I have a file picker dialog process that allows the user to do so and although the process runs without any error messages, no data is imported.  

I am aware of how to create an import specification and running the saved import from the external data tab works, but I need to be able to run this from the user interface and the file path will not always be the same, nor will the file name.
I had this question after viewing small downloads folder.

has many items in download folder.

I have a related question because airbnb app only shows 9 items in download folder (newest nine).
Older items with same name have no picture.
I can not attach these items.
Airbnb does not recognize these files as images.

So it is an airbnb app error.
I need to allow users to upload their financial reports (PDF or CSV) to my site, but enable them to obscure private data (Business Name, Merchant Account Numbers, etc.) before any data gets stored to the disk.

I need to use Angular to create a list of user data fields extracted from the PDF and display them for approval, perhaps with a checkbox next to each field. Fields which contain that merchants proprietary data need to be then be checked off by the user so those fields would be populated with XXXXX's.

I do not want to store that PDF onto my server. Instead, I want the user to select the fields needing to be hidden. Or even ignore them altogether. I just do not want that PDF on my server.

So, the question is...

Can Angular extract the contents of a PDF that has been uploaded? And a PDF that does not exist on disk?

I could save the extracted data onto my server in some other fashion, not yet decided.

I prefer Angular 4, and hope this functionality exists in Angular 4.

It's an interesting challenge. I see Angular as a great platform for nested logic and as a place to store objects and lists of objects. And to do the first part of processing this data on the client is what intrigues me.

Sometimes the browser navigation button "BACK" for instance, do not go back one screen. Why is this?
The UI has a back button that DOES go back one screen.
What's the difference between the browser back button and the UI back button. Sometimes the browser back button DOES bring you to the previous screen, other times it'll generate a white screen or "page expired" message.

When HTTP Header Content-Security-Policy is set to "Default-src 'self', ASP text box does not get hidden

Content-Security-Policy to Default-src 'self' on IIS
This is the piece of code which used to be "hidden" from user, but by setting Content-Security-Policy to Default-src 'self', it shows up on the UI on FireFox and Chrome. It hides correctly on IE.  

            <div style="position: relative; float: left;">
                <asp:TextBox ID="txtTop" runat="server" Width="0px" Height="0px" Style="background: #517ca6;
                    background-color: #517ca6; color: #517ca6;" BorderStyle="None"></asp:TextBox>

Any suggestion on how we can keep the control hidden, and be able to set Content-Security-Policy to Default-src 'self'?

I have tried to find a way to hide or show a customized ribbon tab from VBA in Word.
I have tried to do this with the Custom UI Editor and created XML scripts, but I have not been able to use these scripts from VBA.
The only examples I have seen are modifying tabs, groups and controls in the ribbon. And then the controls can run a macro.
I guess I am trying to run XML scripts from VBA. Is that possible?
Or is there another way to do this?

I am trying to build a mock up/ functional proof of concept...

Here is what i am trying to do.

This requires to controls using the jquery datatables approach.

1)  Dropdown

2)  Datatable

The dropdown would be a list of items and upon clicking an item in the list it would add a row to top of grid.
the columns in the row would be editable but not required.  The command would be insert or cancel.

The databable upon loading page would potentially have data.  The table would need to allow the user to edit a row, save that change or cancel that change all in the row...no pop ups or modals...just all one click with the following action buttons.

Please help build a prototype.    

I will have a larger implementation but I really need to get something together to show this functionality so I can justify this approach.

The examples I have found so far do not implement jquery datatables this way.

My jquery is 1.11, ui is 1.10 and bootstrap is 3x

Users want to be able to select a different tray or drawer from which to print "on the fly". However, even though the printer has 4 drawers, the only option users (even users with printer management permissions) see from Printing Preferences > Paper/Quality > Tray Selection are Automatically Select and Manual Paper Feed. Perhaps using the Remote UI (the printer's web interface), how can I configure the printer to give users the ability to see and choose from all 4 printer drawers?

Thank you

I am enhancing a C application running on RedHat Linux that uses Motif for the user interface.  I would like the text data entry boxes to behave like they do in windows.  Namely, click to move the focus to them, but allow data entry regardless of where the cursor happens to be.

Currently the application will only let you enter data in a field if you click in the field and the mouse cursor remains hovering over the field.  This makes data entry very annoying as after clicking the cursor tends to stray away from the field.

I've looked into setting keyboardFocusPolicy but that only seems to set whether or not you need to click in a field to set the focus.  I want some property that says "Continue to allow data entry in field with focus even if cursor is out of field".  Is there such a property or setting like this in Motif?
