Web Components

Web Components are a set of standards currently being produced by Google engineers as a W3C specification that allow for the creation of reusable widgets or components in web documents and web applications. The intention behind them is to bring component-based software engineering to the World Wide Web. The components model allows for encapsulation and interoperability of individual HTML elements. Support for Web Components is present in Chrome and Opera and is in Firefox (with a manual configuration change). Microsoft's Internet Explorer has not implemented any Web Components specifications yet. Web Components consist of 4 main elements: Custom Elements, Shadow DOM, HTML Imports and HTML Templates.

Is it possible to make the WinHTTPRequest object to use TLS v1.2 on a Windows 2008R2 server?

I tried to use this site: "https://howsmyssl.com/a/check" to check the connection security properties,
and it reports that the TLS is 1.0
but if I use the object Msxml2.XMLHTTP instead of WinHTTP.WinHTTPRequest,
then the server reports that "tls_version" is "TLS 1.2"

    set http_req = CreateObject("WinHTTP.WinHTTPRequest.5.1")
    http_req.open "GET", "https://howsmyssl.com/a/check", false
    MsgBox  http_req.responseText

Open in new window

the response:
"tls_version":"TLS 1.0","rating":"Bad"}

Open in new window

If that is impossible, then I'd like to know how actually bad to use "Msxml2.XMLHTTP" to make connections from a web server process?

I want to create an IIS URL rewrite rule which should make the site to respond with the same content on any request. This rule is to be applied when the site goes under a maintenance.
My rule looks like the following:
                <rule name="Stub" enabled="true" patternSyntax="ECMAScript" stopProcessing="true">
                    <match url=".*" />
                    <action type="Rewrite" url="/maintenance.htm?URL={R:0}" appendQueryString="true" logRewrittenUrl="true" />
                        <add input="{REMOTE_ADDR}" pattern="" negate="true" />
                        <add input="{REMOTE_ADDR}" pattern="172.31.3" negate="true" />

Open in new window

It works perfectly for any request to resources in the root folder. But on any request to a sub-directory the server responds with 403 Forbidden

For example, a request like http://mysite.com/s.gif correctly returns the content of the file maintenance.htm (located in the site's root folder), but a request like http://mysite.com/2/s.gif  returns
 <h2>403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.</h2>
  <h3>You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.</h3>

Open in new window

(there is a file /2/s.gif and it is correctly returned when the rule is disabled).
In the W3SVC log file I can see:
2017-12-20 22:01:36 GET /maintenance.htm URL=2/s.gif 443 - Mozilla/5.0+(Windows+NT+6.1;+WOW64;+rv:52.0)+Gecko/20100101+Sea-Monkey/2.49.1+(similar+to+Firefox/52.0) - 403 18 0 78

I need some help if possible.  

My school is very much behind the times, so we are in need of upgrading.

Our president wants specifically to have wireless connections (literally no wires needed to connect a laptop to the system), a very simple way to record high-quality video and audio in the classrooms, and the ability to broadcast class sessions online in real time.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on this?

I'm using currently the project
to check if a web portal, for example http://fontello.com/, works fine with EOT, WOFF and TTF to displaying different icons.

It looks like fonts with the Content-Type application/vnd.ms-fontobject or application/font-woff could not be used with IWebBrowser2.
In the webtraffic i could see, that the app could download the fonts, but after the download i received the error E_ABORT in the IHttpNegotiate::OnResponse handler.

The web pages works in IE, but when we disable font download in the security settings we get the same 'problem' with the IE.

I tried to enable the font download in function IInternetSecurityManager::ProcessUrlAction
(URLACTION_HTML_FONT_DOWNLOAD) without a positive result.

What i'm doing wrong?
I want to develop charts in my project using jsp.
please suggest any open source which should have options to export to different formates.

I need to set up a simple site that is mainly used for posting articles and links but would need to be able to set up ads, comments areas for the articles and possible a forum add in eventually. Don't have web design experience but familiar with how to lay a site out and what needs to be done.

What suggestions do you have that would be a good service that has site building tools for non-developers and does not cost a lot but allows some of the features we need? Probably not much traffic up front so something just to get started that can be expanded later is all we need.

some websites, change their links and then they forget to update the broken links.

for example the link in this page http://www.xldynamic.com/source/xld.XtraTime.html  refers to http://xldynamic.com/cgi-bin/counters/unicounter.pl?name=xld.XtraTime.dl&cache=0&deliver=http://www.xldynamic.com/downloads/xld.XtraTime.zip

which does not work and if i remove the some part of the link and only leave http://www.xldynamic.com/downloads/xld.XtraTime.zip

it will work and will download.

i was wondering if there is a easy way to find the list of all publicly available download links for a website.

i used to work with www.websitename.com/index.html long time ago, but that does not work anymore.

any idea how to get the list of download links for a website?

Hello... just wondering if there is an easy-to-use (and ideally free!) module to display videos on a website... similar to VideoLightbox. Strangely enough, VideoLightbox worked fine for me for awhile and then all of a sudden just stopped working a few weeks ago and I had  never changed a thing. Anyhow, an alternative would be nice...

Hello Experts,
I am using JSTree plugin to display my Data.
But when I select the Child node, I wanted to get the Parent node Text on form submit.
I have tried below code.

$(document).on('click', '#btnSubmit', function () {
var parent = [];
        var selectedElms =$js('#IndustryTree').jstree("get_selected", true);
        $.each(selectedElms, function () {
            var node = $js('#IndustryTree').jstree(true).get_node(this.parent, true);            
            var Parentnode = $js('#IndustryTree').find("[id='" + this.parent + "']");

Open in new window

But When I run this code, in Parentnode[0].innerText I am getting Parent Node text as well as all Child node text. So it is difficult to differentiate the Parent Node Text.

Another issue is when Checked the Parent node, then all child nodes are selected. But I am not getting that selected parent node using below code

var selectedElms =$js('#IndustryTree').jstree("get_selected", true);

Parent Node selection

This code is working when I particularly select the Child node, in this case, parent node CSS class will be jstree-icon jstree-checkbox jstree-undetermined

Child Node selection is Working
Any help would be appreciated

I'm running ASP.NET page on IIS 8.5 (Windows Server 2012 R2) with IzillaFramework / Cognition CMS. Since this is a legacy system, there is no documentation on it and no one is able to assist me in the company, hence I'm posting it here.

Here it is chronologically:

At 12:14 PM, the first customer

When my customer visit the company public website ASP.NET web page to change the account details, after filling their details, the web page will send the PDF summary of the item that the user wanted to change (Before and After) CC: to my accounts department.

But somehow, after last week, the web form is no longer sending the PDF that is entered by the customer, but the email was sent but blank without attachment.

As at 12:14 PM Customer only get blank email with company header and no attachment, while the Accounts department gets the same email but contains the data from previous customer (N-1).

At 12:55 PM, second customer visit the same page to update their details, same thing happens.
Customer only get blank email with company header, the Accounts department gets the customer details as at 12:14 PM (The first customer data).

The second customer data is held somewhere / cached.

Here it is the error message that I can see in the error.log:

I'm looking to create a link to a URL that can update automatically using today's date. Reason is I want to monitor the pricing on my Airbnb listings without having to type in all the search dates every time. So I'd like a URL which is essentially as below but with dates that update to say for example checkin=  ** tomorrow ** &checkout= ** two days later **


Is there an easy way to do this, perhaps even an expression that the browser itself can parse.


PS I've added the javascript topic as I'm interested to learn this and if this is a viable method then this could be a good test
A vendor has supplied the following cURL command which works to upload a file to their site: (of course, I've obfuscated the API key, site, and my username, which works fine from Windows with cURL installed:

curl -u user@foo.com:{API KEY} -F "data=@1239705.jpg" https://foo.com/path/subpath

My reading explains to me that the -F emulates a form, so I would think that 'data' would be an arbitrary form variable name which they have chosen?  I also understand that the @ tells cURL to read the file from the current sub directory on the computer running  and supply that file as the input to the variable on the form (and maybe the file name--the vendor does use the same name as the local file when the command works).  Most of my work with various Web Requests have either been completely coded into the URL (mostly as POST) or true SOAP web services.  I've tried to piece the above command together several different ways with VB, but the only result I get is 500 (Internal Server Error).  Note that it is a jpg file, so maybe I simply need to provide/change encoding?  When I run it from the Windows command line, the result is:


From my research, I'm not even completely sure whether to use WebRequest, HTTPRequest, HTTPWebRequest, WebClient, or ???  Most of my experience is with WebRequest with a NetCredential.

Is it correct that user@foo.com would be the user in my NetworkCredential and {API KEY} would be the password?

Thanks in advance!

I wanted to inquire if anyone knows how PageViews get track with Google Analytics (web log, etc.).
