Web Frameworks

A web application framework (WAF) is a software framework that is designed to support the development of dynamic websites, web applications, web services and web resources. The framework aims to alleviate the overhead associated with common activities performed in web development. Most common web application frameworks are defined by specific subsets, including ASP.NET, JaveEE, Symfony, ColdFusion Language (CFML), Laravel, jQuery and AngularJS, or for the related languages, including .NET, PHP, JavaScript, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, C++ and C.

Mouseover the image of the dental tool on this page:


and you'll see that there is a zoom effect happening right over the image.

Mouseover the same image on this page:


and you'll see the zoom image displays on the right edge of the browser window instead of directly over the dental tool image.

I've narrowed this down to bootstrap.css. If I remove it, the hover works perfectly. So, it's something in bootstrap.css but I can't narrow it down.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

I have been developing a bootstrap website and I have found 1 very major flaw, it treats tablet size the same as phone size, the col-xs-x (for 768px and under)  applies to iphone and ipad alike.


With my design I use 2 columns for desktop and tablet size, once in the phone size I want it to be 1 column but bootstrap has no way to do that

I know I could create 2 copies of the exact same content and use media queries (e.g. display:none, display:block) and swap them out for under 480 pixels, but that seems like it goes against the whole point of using something like bootstrap..

Is there anyway  to use bootstrap's columns to accomplish what I want..

col-sm-3       for  desktop (4 columns)
col-xs-6        for   tablets  (2 columns)
col-???-12  for phone  (1 columns)

I am writting a media query style and it is being ignored.

Please see attached image which shows both the style and width of the screen. The screen width is 970 px, my style is everything under 992 px should use my new font sizes, but they are being ignored.

@media only screen and (max-width : 992px){
.banner H1 {

.banner p {
a.banner-phone, a.banner-phone:active, a.banner-phone:link, a.banner-phone:visited {
   font-size: 24px;

Which is the stable version of bootstrap till date which supports Jquery (version# ?).

If possible please educate me with any link to check updated stable versions of different frameworks for web  and mobile developments.
I want to use AJAX to enable my users to add/remove an unlimited amount of phone numbers while utilizing the intl-tel-input plugin:

- when link [ADD] is pressed, a new row should appear with a drop down to select the type (Home, Work, Mobile, etc)
- when delete is pressed, an Ajax call should be made and the row removed
Hi guys,

I am developing a piece of software which integrates with my companies billing system. The creators of the software have allowed us to use all of their stored procedures however they are unwilling to change anything or allow us to unlock/edit them.

There is one procedure which outputs three "No column name" columns. It's not a big deal for me because I know what they do, however when I am trying to use Entity Framework it throws a fit. I have imported the stored procedure and it automatically created three columns named "Column1, Column2, Column3" respectively. I was excited when I saw this because I just referenced those column names in my code and thought all was well.

Well .. not so much. Anytime I execute my code I receive the following error:

"ExceptionMessage=The data reader is incompatible with the specified 'Sedona.Service_Tech_Schedule_Result'. A member of the type, 'Column1', does not have a corresponding column in the data reader with the same name."

Open in new window

I have done hours worth of researching on the web and can't seem to find anyone that has had this problem.

Here is a partial result of the procedure when run in SQL Management Studio
Here is the file that Visual Studio generated, Note the columns labeled Column1 and Column2
// <auto-generated>
//     This code was generated from a template.
//     Manual changes

I am using Eonasdan's Bootstrap Date/time picker:

I would like to be able to read the selected picked date in a format of my choosing which in this case is DD/MM/YYYY. However it seems to output with the day of week, month name, day, year, time and GMT offset.

I have created an example of the script here:

When you select a date I output the ID of the date text field and the date string. I am able to set the date format for how the date appears in the date text field but not when I read it.

Please see my 4 callouts   ( Good Drivers, Car + Home etc..)

At this moment I have the buttons (Start Saving Now) Locked to bottom of DIV when in full screen PC mode, as soon as you start to mimimize the screen though, it gets all messed up.

	bottom: 5px;
	left: 55px;

Open in new window

How can I code this better so my buttons stay at bottom benter of DIV all the time relative to the DIV position and size
On my page below in the mobile menu I am using an accordian menu for the Car insurance section

I found this piece of code which adds a plus /minus icon when opening and closing and applied it to my page

What is happening is that all the plus' and minus' get changes when I click open/close when in the car insurance menu

If I am in the main menu (Car Insurance, Commercial Insurance etc), the plus and minus doens't change at all

This is the javascript

$('.collapse').on('shown.bs.collapse', function(){
}).on('hidden.bs.collapse', function(){

Experts  , I have an application written in MVC5 / C#/SQL Server. I have one userid and one password column as of now, if needed I can add more columns in the table to achieve this functionality.  I need to restrict the user not to use the previous two passwords in the reset screen. any ideas?

.When I change/reset a password ,  I will see an error message if my New  password is same as of previous two passwords.

" New password must be different than previously used passwords for last two changes/resets"

I've installed my zend application in wamp->bin->php right alongside my PHP folder
I've got my php.ini file reading include_path = ".;C:\wamp\bin\php\zend_app\library"
I've gone into my advanced settings and added "C:\wamp\bin\php\zend_app\bin" to my Path variable name

I've done everything I can think of and I am still not able to access zf from my command line. In other words, when I enter "zf show version," I get an error that says: "zf command not found."

What am I doing wrong? I've been looking at this for a couple of hours and have not been able to get it to work.

I am trying to create a responsive mega menu for bootstrap 3, I found the one below

and applied it to my build here

The big problem with it is that when on a desktop, the menu wont rollover, you need to click it open.

So my question is 2 part
1. Can we make it open on rollover when on a desktop?
2. or can someone recommend a bootstrap 3  mega menu which will do what I need?
Attached is a graphic that outlines a task I'm being asked to do in the Zend framework. Two words: No clue...

I'm making my way through Git as well as some other tutorials, but in the interest of being as efficient as possible, I want to try and focus on learning those skills that are relevant to the task at hand. In other words, as I continue to google terms and other info relevant to the basics, I want to throw out some questions that are specific to the coding objective you see below.

First off, I've got to create a form. I'm still in the shallow end of the pool with the Zend framework and I've just recently popped the hood on a tutorial that shows how to create a login (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L29onMRiP3U), but how does one create a form within ZF?

Secondly, I need to "parse" some info. I know what that means, but I want some other eyes on this simply because creating an array is usually a means to an end as opposed to an end within itself. The way this looks to me is I'm going to create a form with a textarea in it that will contain the kind of info you see in the recipe. I've then got to create a parser that "explodes" each of the lines into elements that match quantity, measurement and ingredient. It doesn't look like that's going to be entered into a database, I just need to display the array. How would I do that within ZF?

Bottom line: Is the task that I've just outlined match the directions as you see them below and, if so, how do I pull this …
I have three fields

CategoryA-->CategoryB -->CategoryC

CategoryA has single value to be stored in Database
CategoryB has multiple values to be stored in Database Table
CategoryC has multiple values to be stored in Database Table

In codeigniter , I m imploding the values of the both CategoryB and CategoryC
before , saving the form data in the model class save function  

Do I need to do something in View  also ...

something like this , add html array :

<select name="pk_id[]" size="10" multiple>

But I m not using name to refer to the dropdown /select but using id to achieve
that .

I am trying to customize the bootstrap nav, all of my customizations work except the hover state, it refuses to change. Also, the dropdown menu background colour wont be changed.


I am trying to make it  background-color: #8992B;

I have rewritten almost every navbar style in has, but it ignore this change, you can't even see my changes in firebug for the background color (You can see all my other changes though)
I have a page with a repeated region displaying results.
I want to use a modal window to display the selected record and update it.

I currently have this to open the modal window:

<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#myModal4">

Modal window opens but needs a parameter to display the recordset information from the selected record. So it displays an error.
How can I open the modal window and pass parameters to it ?

If I had a normal link to another page, which I am trying to avoid having the link to page.asp would be:


So I am passing values for 'formcaseid' and for 'caseid'

How can I call the modal window AND pass those to parameters with their values ?
I've boldly lept into the Ember.js universe, and my Ember advisors are awesome. Here's the rub, I'm locked into an IIS / ASP.NET / MSSQL combo for my web / application / DB due to client requirements. The MSSQL element is a good thing; I know it well. The IIS / ASP.NET elements, however, have been giving me trouble.

I've been using the ASP.NET MVC API template for Ember.js by Xinyang Qiu, Nathan Totten, and Thiago Santos as a starting point. While the API contains some real gems, there are aspects of it that mystify me: A simple POST request hits the API. The following screenshot represents the request, the request headers, and the request payload.

HTTP RequestThe above request results in the following method being called in the API's controller. Additionally, todoListDto, the data-transfer object, is fully populated with the request payload.

Resulting Method Call in ControllerHow is the API pulling this off?

The above method, PostTodoList, is of the type HttpResponseMessage. I suspect that's part of it.
PostTodoList is in the class TodoListController which derives from ApiController. That may be part of it.
Global.asax calls a few methods at startup that I suspect play a key role in the process.

Global.asax CallsI recognize that I'm no ASP.NET MVC expert, far from it. I simply need to know enough of ASP.NET …

does anyone know of a start theme/template using the above for a new web app i want to create

Ideally i want the bootstrap and theme included with asp.net users and roles already integrated to help get me started
I would have thought this would have been a popular request

most stuff I found is just MVC but i need webforms
this looked good http://www.aspnetboilerplate.com/ but its MVC only

I have an OpenCart 2 store with a responsive template but I do not think the design is ideal for mobile. I would prefer to server a different template if user is using a mobile device (not tablet just mobile) but not send them to a mobile version of the website.

There is a an extension I think does what I want (http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=5125) but it is only for opencart 1.5 and I am using

I would like to create a separate folder in catalog/view/theme called mobile and then the script determine if the user was using a mobile device and if so use that template and if not use the custom template in my settings. Is this possible?

I am also worried about the large number of extensions I have installed and if that will clash and also the cache through opencart and VQmod.

Some advice will be much appreciated on the difficulties or possibility of this.

Many Thanks
I try in Ocotbercms to get the full image url in the backend.

In need in the backend the full file path of a uploaded image so I can used the image url in afterCreate().
My model:

namespace name\pluginname\Models;

use Model;
use DB;
use Validator; 

 * Post Model
class Post extends Model

    public $table = mytable';
    protected $guarded = ['*'];
    public $attachOne = [
    'featured_images' => ['System\Models\File']

    public function afterCreate()
    $post = Post::find($this->id); 

    if ($post->featured_images)
    $featuredImage = $post->featured_images->ge<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>tPath();
    $featuredImage = 'http://placehold.it/220x3<wbr ></wbr><wbr ></wbr>00';

    traceLog('image url: '. $featuredImage);



Open in new window

The var $featuredImage has always the placeholder image because $post->featured_images is empty. I do something wrong but I realy don't see what I do wrong...

I'm now checking node.js as an oportunity to create webapps with my clients, but I have this doubts that I need to solve:
-Is node.js faster than PHP, ruby or Python? (I've already seen some performance benchmarks between these three, but i only want to confirm it).

-How about security? I've heard that there are some security problems with the sockets and the protocols that node.js uses

-Is there any good framework for node?

-Does Laravell, CodeIgniter or any other PHP framework can be a better option than node.js?

-Is there good support in hosting servers for it?

Any other comments of this topic are welcome.
