One of my old posts has generated some interesting requests in the form of comments. In most cases, here was the latest, though I think it's a prank from my local MVP, Miguel Castro...Congrats on the MVP award, dude....and here's my suggestion Recieved via comments... “Can you tell me how I can display a bitmap image inside the actual checkbox, change the color through a transition effect when the checkbox state changes, and make the image automatically dim or brighten according to the lunar ...
Due to the success I had in the past asking technical questions in this blog, I will make another attempt, please note that I looked around before asking, but was unable to come up with an answer by myself. This question was asked by one of my colleags here. In Javascript you can assign a number to a var in the normal wayvar x;var y;y = 3;alert(y); //(shows 3)y=4+6;alert(y); //(shows 10)//And so on, math seems to work pretty well.//But something else that works is:x = [3];alert(x); //(shows 3) x=[3+7];alert(x); ...
eBay has been improving customization for eBay Stores. eBay store owners do not have the flexibility of an independent ecommerce store, but they can still customize their eBay stores for good search engine traffic. Remember on page optimization is only a part of SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and another very important part is off page optimization. You can read more about this at Daily SEO Blog On Page and Off Page Optimization article. eBay Discussion Board has a very informative topic for eBay ...
Today I feel like bitching about the Area Listings template and Rich Text Fields If I said 'I wanted a way of publishing news items on a Portal' I am sure all of you working with Portal would go 'Aha use the Portal News Area", but in my opinion, the Portal news area might be cool, but it is also limited. First off all, most of the features of lists are missing. Namely The ability to DVWP the listings in an area easily Edit listings in DataSheet mode The Export to Spreadsheet is not available (ya ...

Identity theft is considered the nation's fastest-growing crime and last year more than 9.9 million Americans were victims. California State University, Chico spokesman Joe Wills said nearly all the current, former and prospective students, faculty and staff who were affected have been notified of the theft, which happened about three weeks ago. Hackers gained access to the victims' names and Social Security numbers. Read more about California State University Hacker Attack at CNN . This is getting ...
This actually makes sense, though I haven't run into this issue until now. For those of you who develop custom WebControls (composite ones specifically), I'm sure you've probably used the ClientID or UniqueID property of a child control when doing things like attaching javascript. What I didn't notice before is that you shouldn't access the ClientID or UniqueID property of any child control until it has been placed in the Controls collection of its parent. In fact, if you're building a hierarchy ...

OneStop Shopping Directory Review Search Engine Optimization has become one of the most important methods to bring traffic to the web sites. Online shopping sites rely on different web promotion methods to find customers. While creating your own brand, you should specifically focus on search engine optimization.

Ebay Feedback Every eBay member has a profile in the Feedback Forum. A profile has basic information about the member and a list of feedback left by their trading partners from previous transactions. Learning to trust a member of the community has a lot to do with what their past customers or sellers have to say! For each transaction, only the buyer and seller can rate each other by leaving feedback. Each feedback left consists of a positive, negative, or neutral rating, and a short comment. Leaving ...

I've been looking for new alternative sites for eBay to recommend auction sellers and use myself also. While I was comparing sites which do not charge any listing fees or final value fees for the items listed, I have seen Blujay being a step further than some other new sites. Blujay had several advantages compared to other online market places. Blujay's system is similar to what we call classifieds systems. Some advantages I've experienced during using Blujay are: Very easy to register, and activate ...
OK; I have been holding out on you guys. A couple of months back I was talking to Sig, and we were discussion how the entire navigation story in SharePoint can be improved. This was the discussion that started this off for me. But he happened to show me a couple of alternatives that he was working on. And this one really caught my eye. I'm talking about the 'Go To' menu on the top left. Now Sig's version there is a DVWP with some super JavaScript to crawl the DOM and build the contents of the Quick ...
Mads has an initiative going to collect reports of browser incompatibility issues with SharePoint. Sig mind sharing your knowledge on tweaking those javascripts to get SPS to work A-OK on FireFox ;) ...
So you would like to add Technorati Search to your site, but you can't because you don't have full control over the html in your blog. Like me a good example of this would be blogs on .Text. The code given to you by Technorati is a form, which doesn't work in .Text. I really want to add Technorati Search to my blog. I used my Adding Search to my blog the MSN Search Beta way as a template. So I went from what Technorati gave me and created a Technorati Search that will work for me. Hopefully David ...

I just picked up some very interesting information from http://blogs.wdevs.com/coli... seems that in IE javascript can extract data out of your clipboard. It doesn't work with FireFox either because the feature is not supported or off by default. Luckily, it is a security option and it can be disabled.Go to Tools --> Internet Options...Click on the Security TabSelect Internet Zone and then click Custom Level...Scroll down to the scripting section and see ...
There's a new auction site called Wagglepop which will be launched in February 2005. Wagglepop project has been discussed since last november on several auction community forums.

Wagglepop will take its place in the market with the slogan “The Smarter Way to Buy and Sell” . Wagglepop will focus on Search Engine Optimization and will have a different ...
I've decided to register for Coop Advertising Network couple of months ago. It's a free service offered by Digitalpoint .

Below is an FAQ from Digitalpoint website. Coop Advertising Network FAQ What is this? The ad network is a network of site owners that offer ad space to the network.

When I first started with SharePoint I was pretty much surprised that the ability to create tabs was only available on meeting workspaces. I have no explanation as to why there is such a limitation. I am also currently unaware of a hack to make that system available across all WSS Sites, but here is something that I was able hooked up, and I am actually pleased with it (the main reason I am pleased with it, is because it’s nothing more than a DataView WebPart). What I wanted was a system of ...
PASADENA, Calif. (Reuters) - The European-built space probe Huygens entered the atmosphere of Saturn's largest moon, Titan, on Friday, sending back indications it was alive and well and leaving scientists eager for its first research data. The Saturn orbiter Cassini, which acted as the relay station for Huygens, sent signals back showing that it had finished its acquisitions from Huygens and had turned toward Earth to begin transmission of a likely three hours of data. Huygens began its two-hour ...
DARMSTADT, Germany - European space probe Huygens landed safely on the surface of Saturn's moon Titan today (Friday), a space official said, buoying hopes the mission would produce data that could shed light on the origins of life on Earth. AP Photo Canadian Press Slideshow: Saturn and Moon Titan Officials were jubilant as early signals showed the probe powering up for entry, then beginning the 2 1/2-hour parachute descent during which it was to gather information that could shed light on how life ...
I have updated my MSN search look. Feel free to use it. Thanks again to David Cumps for the original.

I don't understand! I just got an Wallop invitation from a friend of mine. The invitaiton comes from mywallop.com domain.

After listening to a few conversations and a discussion I had with a recruiter today, I can’t help but wonder if client-side scripting will be the hot topic of choice for this year. I know it has been around since early versions of web browsers, but let me explain. If you’ve been watching Google, you know that they have released several new projects that go beyond simple web applications. Notably, there was Gmail. If you haven’t already heard, Gmail is Google’s free e-mail ...
This in a sense is just a rant, but also a serious post. I've been working for this company (still the same one I wrote about before) for the last five years in changing roles, I always had some sort of connection to the web component, and in the past 2.5 years, I have been on the actuall dev team of it. To outline the past roadmap of this application, lets just say that it started as a demo. which is the worst mistake that was done here. Why? because when you develop something as a demo/poc/ just ...
Maurice shares some thoughts on what most probably might be with the next Version of SharePoint. He also mentions vaguely the nuance of developing and deploying WebParts. The fact is SharePoint v Next will built on the next version of Asp.net. I am sure that most of you would agree that WSS is today what it is because of Asp.net. The move up from SPS 2001 or STS to SharePoint 2003 was phenomenal. All that productivity capabilities just opened up with the 2003 versions. I suspect that we can look ...

As a developer wanting to create a WebPart that needs a date picker everybody will tempted to use SharePoint's date picker. Unless you know how to use it you are going to run into a couple of gotchas. Basically everybody initially stumbles, trying to find a way to get it to display. What you should ideally do to use the OWSDateField is OWSForm frm1 = new OWSForm(); OWSDateField df1 = new OWSDateField(); frm1.Controls.Add(df1); If you are creating an ASP.NET form, you would need to have the following ...
The secret formula for interactive web applications: iWebApp = HttpRequest as channels + Javascript objects as messages If you have Firefox installed, click on this link for a half-baked sample. SqlManager * Clicking on a table refresh its structure * Clicking on view, shows the table's content * Clicking on run, executes the SQL command Add a rich user interface like XUL and there you have it, an improved formula for a richer web experience ...

Slowly but surely, the world is waking up from an xml-induced comma.
Google has been the first one to open their eyes and see a better world.
The right medicine can cure the worse of the maladies, and sometimes it is discovered just by accident.

My bets are on javascript.

Main Entry: ped·ant Pronunciation: 'pe-d&ntFunction: nounEtymology: Middle French, from Italian pedante1 obsolete : a male schoolteacher2 a : one who makes a show of knowledge b : one who is unimaginative or who unduly emphasizes minutiae in the presentation or use of knowledge c : a formalist or precisionist in teaching I am especially fond of 2b. I absolutely hate it when people are pedantic. I know some pedantic people. They are currently making my life hell. The pedants in my life are ...
by Wing Lam As e-customers (whether business or consumer), we are unlikely to have confidence in a Web site that suffers frequent downtime, hangs in the middle of a transaction, or has a poor sense of usability. Testing, therefore, has a crucial role in the overall development process. Given unlimited time and resources, you could test a system to exhaustion. However, most projects operate within fixed budgets and time scales, so project managers need a systematic and cost-effective approach to testing ...
This is in reference to custom webcontrol development. I have my own preference on this matter and have not been able to get more than that from outside sources. No book or posting labels either as 'better than the other', though I've come across a couple of papers stating that composite controls are the 'preferred' way. So let's start with the difference between the two: Rendered controls are developed by overriding the Render method in the custom control class and writing directly to the rendering ...
With the holiday seasons, retail industry is having a peak time. How about online sales? Several big websites announce their fancy quarter numbers, and look very happy about them. How about eBay? eBay's quarter numbers looked pretty good and also promising. But if you speak to eBay sellers, they will say this is the slowest season. Since eBay sales are increasing, more buyers are visiting the website, and also eBay has launched a new advertisement campaign, so what is the real problem? eBay seller ...
I just have notices that you can't access hyperlink as usually you access other serverside controls.

From the Google Blog: You probably never notice the large number that appears in tiny type at the bottom of the Google home page, but I do. It's a measure of how many pages we have in our index and gives an indication of how broadly we search to find the information you're looking for. Today that number nearly doubled to more than 8 billion pages. That made me smile. Comprehensiveness is not the only important factor in evaluating a search engine, but it's invaluable for queries that only return ...
No I wasn't fired after my week of management, nor have I received any feedback on my performance - which is very dis-appointing. Following my previous post where I kind of made it clear that I don't want to keep working here, this past week strengthened my resolve. So I did some steps - some interviews are coming ahead with some interesting options. Just for you who are looking for workers, I'm an Internet Developer mainly working with VB, ASP, SQL Server (and of course client side scripting Javascript, ...
It’s not as hard as you think. A few years back, all I knew about computers was on the software side of things. I am a developer and have been programming since I was twelve. I never considered doing anything on the hardware side of things myself. I remember the computer I bought in 1994 cost me $3,800. Computers today are not that expensive, but they still are pricey, BUT I AM HERE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU CAN EASILY BUILD YOUR OWN COMPUTER. It is easier than doing a puzzle … really. Here ...
I am pretty busy nowadays, and I didn't have a chance to post to my blog. Here's what's going on with my life. Last friday we had a barbeque party at my place, and our friends came over. It was pretty fun. Sunday we went to the musical “Les Miserables” which was on a national tour. I missed my old days, visiting Broadway shows in NY, but this is cool, too to have a Broadway show in Lubbock, TX. You can find more info about Les Miserables Musical on this link. Work is pretty good, I got ...
I need a few recommendations for training for two of my co-workers who are going from ASP w/ JavaScript to C#/.NET Framework/ASP.NET. Shameless plugs won't be ignored but keep it civil. They are both very smart and I don't think they will have problems with C# and it's syntax because it is so close to JavaScript but the .NET Framework is a huge beast so they will definitely need help with that. Any takers?
A couple of neat thoughts at SharePointblogs shared by Bob Mixon and Dustin Miller on how to fix the ‘Show it all’ UI of SharePoint. Daniel McPhearson also points to this post on Point2Share about options available to alter the UI. Radical thought of the moment: There’s no way I am writing JavaScript to this. I don’t even want to imagine going through all the trouble of debugging the script. Although I do agree with Bob, I would have preferred the adaptive interface to be ...
As usual, we have rented some movies last weekend. Since I am from Europe and grew up watching European independant movies, I am always looking for different movies at Hastings. I like the big budget Hollywood movies, but you have to keep up with what's going on with low budget movies. Here we are in Hastings, looking for some movies to rent, and my wife rents the movie called “Coffee & Cigarettes”. We check it out, big big names, such as Roberto Benigni, Steven Wright, Jarmusch etc. ...
Overstock.com is trying to give Internet giant eBay a run for its money. The company, which sells other retailers' excess inventories at discounted prices online, is starting its own auction service. Overstock officials said yesterday they want to offer customers lower fees and a more simple site to use. The company says 15,000 people have already signed up for the service, which was launched almost a week ago. They say that's not a bad start, but admit they're still lag well behind eBay's 114 million ...
Individually they’ve been unstoppable in their respective industries. They’re both legends that have survived the dot com burst and came out winners. Now they’re using both their muscle to combat a Canadian spammer who has been using spam to perform "phishing" fraud. First, an introduction to Phishing: "Phishing", for the uninitiated, is a form of fraud which uses fake, but official looking e-mails to solicit information from consumers such as credit card numbers, social security ...
I was reading through the discussion forums, and on FreeAuctionScripts Discussion Forum, I have seen a post by a respected, and well known internet business owner bargainbloodhound . The post is about a comment made by eBay Stores Team management. eBay's customer service problems are becoming a very serious problem and many big sellers are leaving to different venues. Also couple months ago, eBay launched a survey which had several questions about “paying for customer service“. I have ...
eBay decided to keep Half.com open. So what was all that hassle for? Thousands of sellers spent days to figure out how to transfer their inventory and listings to other sites including eBay. Then they dedice to keep Half.com open, this is a very immature move by eBay management. Here's an article about Half.com; eBay will keep Half.com subsidiary open SAN JOSE, Calif. -- EBay Inc. announced Thursday that it will keep its Half.com subsidiary open indefinitely, scrapping previous plans to shutter the ...
