My most recent project has been to migrate a bunch of sites from WSS 3.0 (SharePoint 2007) to SharePoint Server 2010. The users are currently working with WSS 3.0 and Office 2003, so the new ribbon based UI in 2010 will be completely new. My client wants to avoid the new SharePoint 2010 look and feel until they’ve had time to train their users, so we’ve been testing the upgrades by keeping them with the 2007 user interface. Permission to perform the Visual Upgrade One of the first things we noticed ...
HTML5 supports a standard, native <video> tag which is already well supported in browsers and has great backwards-compatibility options. Before you spend too much time on the HTML5 video element, you should spend some time getting comfortable with video codecs and debate going on regarding video codec support between the different browsers. Dive Into HTML5 has a great introduction to the topic, and these Information Week and Register articles can help catch you up on the current state of video ...
The new HTML standard is part of a proliferation of challenges and opportunities that developers face today: Browser Wars v2.0 Going back 10 years ago, Internet Explorer could claim 95% of the browser market (http://en.wikipedia.org/wi... Today you have to include IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari to get past the 95% support mark (http://marketshare.hitslin... And this only includes desktop browsers! Safari, the Android browser and Opera all have strong market shares in the mobile/tablet ...
Continuing my series of lessons learnt from practical experiance...

For some time my development PC has been running slow when acessing certain web sites such as Hotmail, yet when I used my wife's PC, same site performed OK. The problem I eventually tracked down to an HTML testing add-on, turned it off, restarted Firefox and then Firefox performance improved dramaticly. One particular area of improvement was that Silverlight no longer crashes when uploading a file to Hotmail.
All modern browsers support the JavaScript's window.onbeforeunload event. It fires before the unload event when the page is unloaded. So this event always uses to stop a page from exit. The following codes illustrate how to implement this function: window.onbeforeunload = function (e) { var message = 'Are you sure you want to leave?'; var e = e || window.event; // For IE and Firefox prior to version 4 if (e) { e.returnValue = message ; } // For Safari return message; }; and we can also use this event ...

I am writing my last post Firefox 7 Released when Mozilla release Firefox 7 now they have 9 soon they have 12. Now I am show you a little problem with word processor we use daily. let’s take a look at issue Suppose my name is Anirudha. what happen if I use some different different software. Windows Live Writer:- window live writer have no suggestion about it show RED border in bottom of text. Microsoft Word 2007 :- Maybe it’s a little bit better because when I type anirudha they make it capitalize ...
I’m not sure I have ever thrown this down in writing. I probably have said this 800 or 900 times, but I think that HTML 5 in SharePoint 2010 sucks. The support is terrible in the two most prevalent web browsers at the enterprise level – Internet Explorer and Firefox. If you can’t even get the video tag to work in IE 9 or the latest version of Firefox then that’s a huge fail for the product with HTML 5. What I think needs to be done in the product to improve HTML 5 support so that we can move towards ...
Firefox 9.0.1 is now out. Just go to Help, About within Firefox and accept the update.
Recently (as in, last night) I started playing with jQuery Mobile. My experiences with jQuery, while occasionally frustrating, have been overwhelmingly positive. So when a friend mentioned jQuery Mobile to me, I figured I'd give it a try. A little Googling revealed some helpful tutorials and other resources, one of which was this handy basic page (which I got from here) <!DOCTYPE html><html><hea... Title</title><link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.co... ...
At http://www.lockergnome.com/craighton/2011/11/30/10-web-developer-firefox-add-ons/ there is a list of 10 very useful Firefox add-ins.

A good list of useful utilities.
As an individual who does not use Internet Explorer as their primary browser, there is a great feature that you may never notice that allows you to easily copy files to and from a document library: the Open in Windows Explorer link. In browsers such as Chrome or Firefox this link may not appear. I know this isn’t a major groundbreaking feature, but it’s really easy to overlook and it’s worth knowing about, especially when you need to create a local copy of a full document library. In this quick blog ...
I'm working on a 5+ year old ASP.NET project that has 74+ projects and we've been adding new Silverlight applications to run in the ASP.NET page islands. My machine at work isn't the most powerful, so I find myself waiting a lot for the whole thing to build. I'm using Visual Studio 2010, so that takes up a lot of resources as well. This causes me to get distracted and I start looking at the news... I need to combat that more :-). I can't get a new machine, that's up to someone else, so I've found ...
© 2011 By: Dov Trietsch. All rights reserved Adventures with JavaScript rendered in IE 8, Chrome 15, and Firefox 8.0 I have written a little monogram about the advantages of Math and wrote a few JavaScript applications to demonstrate them. I was a bit careless and used elements on the page in my JavaScript without using any of the GetElementsByXXXX methods to identify them. Say I had a text box named tbSeqNum into which I entered a number to be used in a computation. In my code I simply referred ...
If you are active on Facebook, there is very less chance that you missed on the recent Facebook UI update “Social Graph” or more popularly referred as “Timeline” (a screenshot of how the Timeline profile UI looks, here below) This Timeline UI has been quite popular and is supported in most of the modern browsers including IE9, Chrome 14 & Firefox 6 and above. I am a power consumer of web and use IE9 as my primary browser. Timeline UI works excellent in IE9. I have also downloaded the IE10 Platform ...

I now have the new version of firefox installed and it does use less memory (about 50% less according to Task Manager!).

Hi All, Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2 having following features :- Use Microsoft Test Manager to capture and playback action recordings for Silverlight 4 applications. •Create coded UI tests for Silverlight 4 applications with Visual Studio 2010 Premium or Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate. •Edit coded UI tests using a graphical editor with Visual Studio 2010 Premium or Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate. •Use action recordings to fast forward through manual tests that need to support Mozilla Firefox 3.5 ...

Accordign to a post at http://www.macstories.net/news/firefox-7-officially-released/, Firefox 7 has been released. This may be be just a Mac version for now. I look forward to the Windows as it promises to require about 50% less memory.

For more formatted view .. Goto http://ankitagrawal57.blogs... any web application, performance is basic necessity. Earlier internet speed used to be limited thus users got inclined to pages which load within 3-4 secs. But now the internet speed is no more a constraint but still time does remain a constraint. Imagine yourself visiting a website which takes a lot of time (30 – 60 secs) just to load the page. You would not like to go to that site again.To mitigate this issue, developers and ...
I've just installed the Windows 8 Developer Preview. These are some first impressions: Installation of the preview was quite smooth and didn't take too long. It took a few minutes to extract the files onto a virtual image, but feature installation then seemed to happen almost instantaneously (according to the feedback on the screen). The installation routine then went into a preparation cycle that took two or three minutes. Then the virtual machine rebooted and after a couple of minutes more preparation, ...
Recently I attended Microsoft HTML5 WebCamp where I had a chance to get insights on all new features HTML5 has to offer. Couple things to mention: - Canvas - a new HTMl5 feature that uses JavaScript to draw bitmap graphics on a web page. Simple approach (less JS coding) makes this interesting: empty space is treated as a painter canvas and a painter brush is replaced with JavaScript. - SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is another graphic tool widely publicized. It is not new, it has been around for ...

Mozilla have issued a new version of Firefox (6.0.2) .

I suggest you install it, together with any update to Flash Player (but avoid installing the MacAfee Security can, unless you are a McAfee fan that is)

Not sure am I slow in doing so? But today I just fire up my Firefox and immediately I receive a prompt to upgrade my Firefox 5 to 6. Here is what I seen after successfully upgraded it. Nothing much special, but i appreciate the good work. But I guess you might notice some changes on the screenshot too. Enjoy! The Up-to-date page after successfully upgraded to Firefox 6. And this is the Add-on manager ...
Occasionally I write a rant or two and this one has been boiling for ages. First off you need to read Mike Watson’s Blog Post on Silverlight Ambiguity in Office 365: http://jmikewatson.wordpres... So now let’s get started. First off this post has been boiling since I have heard the question in one of my sessions last year “What do you think will happen to Silverlight now that HTML 5 exists?”. I brushed it aside. I ignored it when ...
Goal: Rotating text using css only. How: Surprisingly IE supports this feature rather well. You could use property filters in IE, but since this is only supported on IE browsers, I would not recommend it. CSS3, still in proposal state, has a "writing-mode" property for doing this. It has been part of IE's browser engine since IE5.5. Now that it is part of the CSS3 draft specification, would be the best way to implement this going forward. Webkit based browsers; Firefox 3.5+, Opera 11 and IE9 implement ...

This is very easy to check, which mouse button was pressed using jQuery. This solution works propertly on IE (tested on 9), Firefox (tested on 4), Chrome.

On June 8th there will be what is being called World IPv6 day. (details at http://server4.test-ipv6.com/ipv6day.html)

You can test your readiness for this by going to http://test-ipv6.com/

(if you use Firefox with NoScript you will need to enable this URL, an IP4 numeric address and an IP6 numeric address for the test to run.)

 

The worst part about web application development is the phase in the unit testing where we developers swear we've fixed something, but still when we test the change, the fix isn't there. After awhile, we remember to clear the browser cache and we discover the fix worked! In some cases, we really haven't fixed what we thought we fixed--and in other cases, we haven't really cleared the cache. I was working in FireFox recently and realized I hadn't really cleared the cache when I added a new button ...
How to install the multiple version of Firefox here i show you some great thing who can help you to setup fx multiple version in your own system. you need to know that when you run the setup he just override the installed Firefox so you need to install the Fx in two different directories by making a custom installation. plug-in incompatibility is a big trouble user found and a another things is that Firefox every time check for computable version when another version of Firefox you trying to run ...
I was very excited when Microsoft released the Internet Explorer 9 Release Candidate. As far as I was concerned, this was another nail in the coffin for IE6 and step in the right direction for us .NET web developers as our base camp was finally starting to support the latest and greatest future-web standards. Unfortunately, my celebration was short lived as I soon hit a snag while loading up an HTML5 site I was building in Visual Studio 2010. The Mystery After updating Internet Explorer, I ran my ...
I was debugging a script injection issue the other day using some sample code with an alert in it. The alert was popping out meaning the code got executed leaving open the possibility for a hacker to put there some nasty malicious code. I knew my alert was being executed but didn’t know how. So I tried something that worked perfectly for this problem, replaced the native alert function with my own one. All I had to do in Chrome was open the javascript console and type: alert = function(msg){ console.log(msg); ...
I spent most of yesterday removing an annoying virus from my PC. I feel slightly foolish for getting one in the first place, but after so many years I guess I was always going to eventually succumb. I was also a little surprised at the failure of various tools at removing it. The virus would redirect the browser to websites including ‘licosearch’, ‘hugosearch’ and ‘facebook’, and the disk would be thrashing away infecting dlls in some way. I had the full up to date version of McAfee installed. This ...
One of the popular HTML5 tags is the video tag. The ability to play videos without depending on a plugin is something that excites web developers to a great extent and no wonder you end up seeing video demos in all HTML5 conferences. Now, coming to HTML5 Video, the tag itself is simply <video id=”ID” src=”FILENAME.mp4/ogv/webm” > in the simplest form. This also means that the video needs to be H.256 encoded MP4 format or some of the other formats as mentioned above. For a detailed specification ...

All of us work with Visual Studio (or the free Visual Web Developer Express Edition) for developing web applications targeting ASP.NET / ASP.NET MVC or Silverlight etc., Over the years, Visual Studio has grown to a great extent. From being a simple limited functionality tool in VS.NET 2002 to the multi-faceted, MEF driven Visual Studio 2010, it has come a long way. And as much as Visual Studio supports rapid web development by generating HTML mark up, it also added intellisense for some of the HTML ...
First of all, I haven’t been updating this blog as regularly as it used to be. Primarily, due to the fact that, I was visiting a lot of cities talking about SharePoint, Web Matrix, IE9 and few other stuff. IE9 is my new found love and I simply think we have done great work in improving the browser and browsing experiences for our users. This post would talk about IE, general things happening around the web and few misconceptions around IE (I had earlier written about IE8 and common myths ) When you ...
With concerns of HTML 5 overshadowing or affecting the roadmap for Silverlight actively addressed in many blog posts, I decided to cover the value HTML 5 brings to another set of web-based Microsoft solutions: ASP.Net MVC 3 and WebMatrix. A direction to embrace HTML 5 can already be clearly seen in ASP.Net MVC 3 with Unobtrusive Javascript leveraging the “data-“HTML 5 attributes. Additionally, WebMatrix Razor site templates are already HTML5 and CSS3 compliant while continuing to be backwards compatible ...
I love Silverlight and have written / talked about it a lot. I can’t help but notice that a lot of people are new to Silverlight or may have played with it a few times. Well this post is for you. It is a list of 15 things that I’ve discovered since I started developing for Silverlight. If you are a full-time Silverlight developer than I would hope you know most of these. I promise not to scare off anyone with talks of MVVM, Prism or MEF. 1) The line highlighted below represents the MIME type and ...

While working to get the AutoCompleteExtender control up and running in a custom DNN module, I ran across a forum post that said doing so "just works", which if you have previous ASP.NET AJAX experience and know what is and isn't in DNN is probably very true.

It was always obvious that IE9 was going to get new chrome. Why else publish the technical previews with a mocked-up UI? The very fact that the IE team has cleanly separated the core browser technology from the old IE chrome indicates that they are free to change the whole look and feel of the browser if they wish. And of course, they must want to do so. Everyone loves the clean, zippy feel of Google's Chrome. If IE9 is to halt the slow slide in 'market share' that previous versions of the browser ...
