I'm documenting a set of (e.g.) ten screens. Nothing fancy, just a bunch of screenshots. Plus, tables containing:
  • Field Name
  • Datatype.

For three of the tables, I need to provide additional info, so I added a Remarks column. But, it's not needed for the remaining seven tables.

Is it considered better form to include the Remarks column anyhow, for consistency's sake? Or, does a column with no info look bad?

I'm documenting a screen in a web application that contains multiple fields. I need to specify the "type" for each one (e.g. text). What would you call a field where you can check one or more checkboxes? Selection List?
What do you call this list?

In a web app, I've encountered an icon that looks like that below. Is it called a balloon? Something else?

Hello Experts,

I'm currently using a booking application by a company called Koparent http://www.koparent.com/en/

For some reason the application will not show equivalent currencies prices, see image. In the image you can see that the default price is £50, however the application won't show the equivalent price in US Dollars.

If someone is familiar with the application can you please let me know why I'm unable to get the equivalent prices in alternative currencies



Hi hired 2 years ago a freelance to develop our web and software whose is hosted in a 3rd party panel (cdmon.com).

The problem is that freelance is missing, and he purchased the domains with his name, leaving us with no control over our web and software.

We have the access to the web app, but no to our web site, we also cant download our data from the webapp to develop another site. We need to take control over our sites.

Is there any way to copy the DDBB from the web app? we are in negotiations with CDMON panel to prove that we are the right owner of the site.

Any tip about all of this will be welcomed.

Kind Regards.

What could i do to make it work?

Should i just change to .com? How, why can i know if India is blocking .dk domains?


Best regards

hi, i want to setup reverse proxy on virtual directory level and any request on this vd should rewrite the url to another server with different path and query string. I Am trying to use .net core 2.0, it works fine when i use middleware to perform the reverse proxy, but it breaks when i publish it to virtual directory. So i want to do like
http://localhost:5001/a/b/c and rewrite this path to http://anotherserver/a/b/c. But when i publish it becomes
and it is converting to
how can i make it to rewrite the url as  http://anotherserver/a/b/c in virtual dir scenario.

Please note : in middleware or in iis rewrite it works in website scenario. I am trying to make it work in virtual dir scenario

I've encountered the below icon when documenting a web application. In Chrome (and in my app) it seems to be used to access various applications.

What is the icon?
For documentation purposes, does it have a formal name other than (e.g.) "Applications Icon" that most/all readers would understand? (My audience has decent technical knowledge.)

Currently, I am working on a .net web application(Customer Portal)  that has a html5, angular 2.0 and web api controller etc.
Since the database is very slow, downloading a year data to a PDF takes longer time(more than 2 min).
So planning to send it as a CSV files to the customer email address. No need to maintain a queue or database, since a maximum of  30 requests comes per day.

What is the best approach to do this?
I was thinking to write a separate window service.
But maintenance will be there.  We will be maintaining a seperate application.

Is there a way to add a service to the Customer portal web application and maintain as a single application?
Hey guys,
I have a long term project I am going to work on. I don't know when I will get there but I need to build an Excel like interface as a web application.

So I'm guessing this will need a lot of JavaScript. So I know basic JavaScript, some jQuery. I have never focused on and learned JavaScript. My plan is to start there.

Udemy is trying to get me to take a React course, I'm tempted to take it just to have something hip on my resume.

What other JavaScript frameworks should I learn?

This is long term, was hoping some people could guide me with this confusing new world of hip JavaScript frameworks. Don't know how to sift through the madness

Hello experts,

I am trying to locate the most stable and most used open source HR solution.  I looked at number of open sources, which they claim to be, but they are not when the number of users goes beyond certain amount or require additional services.  The number of employees I will be using on this service is over 250.  The HR products I looked at was HR.me, OrangeHRM, and couple more.

I am looking forward to your recommendations.

Thanks in advance
I have code that takes a nvarchar(max) value to run a SP.
If I run the SP directly on SSMS it works fine, the SP does the job. But using ASP Classic code to pass the parameter which is a very long XML string to the SP is giving errors saying the data is getting truncated. Here is the code we currently have:

set sp_usp_xmlparse = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
    sp_usp_xmlparse.ActiveConnection = MM_bluedot_STRING
    sp_usp_xmlparse.CommandText = "dbo.usp_XMLParse"
    sp_usp_xmlparse.CommandType = 4
    sp_usp_xmlparse.CommandTimeout = 0
    sp_usp_xmlparse.Prepared = true
    sp_usp_xmlparse.Parameters.Append sp_usp_xmlparse.CreateParameter("@RETURN_VALUE", 3, 4)
    sp_usp_xmlparse.Parameters.Append sp_usp_xmlparse.CreateParameter("@blob", 200, 1, -1, qnrBlobXML)
    sp_usp_xmlparse.Parameters.Append sp_usp_xmlparse.CreateParameter("@UserID", 3, 1, -1, UpdateStatus__MMColParam)
    sp_usp_xmlparse.Parameters.Append sp_usp_xmlparse.CreateParameter("@FirmID", 3, 1, -1, UpdateStatus__MMColParam2)

Any ideas what could be wrong?
I am migrating two windows 2008 VMs (crystal server) and two RHEL 5.8 VMs (oracle servers)
from current production server to a new larger physical server.

They assigned temp IPs for the migrated machines until testing is completed.

The issue is that I need to test web applications on the new machines
and I cant migrate the current domain name and SSL certificate to the new ones.

1) Do you know how can I set a temporary test domain and set it up in DNS for testing?
Do I need to buy SSL certificates and domain for testing?

2) Would I be able to migrate the current production SSL certificates and domain name
to new machines when we go live or I need to create a new CSR on new machine and resend to certificate authority for regeneration? the machine names are different from old to new machine.
I have a 2012 R2 ADFS 3.0 server on my internal network and a 2012 R2 Windows Application Proxy in my DMZ. I have published two web apps. My issue is a double login prompt at the ADFS login page. I enter my email and password and login. It immediately reloads the same login page. I enter my creds again, and then it takes me to the web app. Both logins appear successful. There is no indication of incorrect creds.

This issue only happens for one of my web apps. The other web app only prompt once like its supposed to do. Both web apps are hosted on the same internal server.

what are differences between
unit test vs integration test vs system test vs acceptance tests
please advise

However, at least some of the text e.g.

  3. Prebid Management Commitees

does not appear on the live page. How can I view this info on the page itself? (This page is not from my client, but rather, from a third party whose info we need.

We have some text fields or HTML editors where currently users have to type, I was wondering if there is any software out there that would allow a user to use their mic to enter the text into the HTML editor with speech.
Is there any good examples to explain how should we build the data pulling section in mobile app development? I heard about the word asynchronous often but what is it actually?

I need something that explain the concept rather than pure programming examples (but good to know if it's also provided)

Any clues?

Thank you.
I developed some software which processes ACH payments. I am concerned about the overall security of ACH because the customer can make changes to the account (acct #, routing etc.). I was wondering if someone could share some guidance on the best way for a company like mine to protect itself from financial liability.

I have considered enhanced auditing, time delays for changes and two-factor for changes. Consider the use case of a small shop where there are only one or two people at the company. We also process for large companies. Just trying to cover the bases and show due care. What works best to cover my company and my customer from fraud as well?
I'm looking for a list of pre PT Questionnaire, for an application based penetration test.
