GridViews are great for showing tabular, repeated data. As with all tabular data, sometimes your dataset has too many fields to show within the table. Therefore, you need to make the row “clickable” so you can show the further detail to the user. You may post the record ID to a view page or even popup the record detail in a JQuery dialog. There are many ways to show the detail so you should consider which approach is best for your site navigation. This article discusses how to select a row on a GridView and do something with it. A perfect scenario for this technique is a GridView that, when a row is selected, refreshes a child GridView and show hierarchical data.

The native row selection method for an asp: GridView is to add a button labeled “Select” at the beginning or end of the row. Then the user clicks the select button which executes code to show the detail. To make navigation easier for the user, I like to make the row row “selectable” so the user does not have to click the button to generate the view. (Note: this is also an accessibility issue too).

Note the asp: CommandField added to the GridView. This will add a SELECT button to the GridView, however the Visible = “false” means it is not shown in the markup. We do not need it in the markup, because we will handle the functionality in the codebehind. But we will bind the codebehind to the CommandField. To do this, we need to bind the row OnClick event to the GridView (I called my GridView GridView1 ) row select functionality. We do this in code as below.

  protected void GridView1_RowDataBound (object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) 

{

if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)

{

e.Row.Attributes ["onmouseover"] = "this.style.cursor = 'hand'; this.style.textDecoration = 'underline';";

e.Row.Attributes ["onmouseout"] = "this.style.textDecoration = 'none';";

e.Row.Attributes ["onclick"] = ClientScript.GetPostBackClientHyperlink (this.GridView1, "Select $" + e.Row.RowIndex);

}

}

So what is happening here is:

  • When the Row data is bound to the GridView
  • Set attributes on the row
  • OnMouseOver – change the cursor and underline the text
  • OnMouseOut – remove the text underline
  • OnClick – call the GridView select method

Each line then has active style changes in response to mouseover / out events and will respond to an OnClick event. You can configure this event as you would normally do so in the asp: CommandField. Alternately, you could bind the OnClick event to another asp: CommandField function is the default action for a row click needs to be an update or insert call.

Til next time.

Advantages Of Outsourcing Software Development

Let's face it: an inexpensive, faster and more productive manner to do things is thought by entrepreneurs.

Let's face it: an inexpensive, faster and more productive manner to do things is thought by entrepreneurs. In this day and age new technologies have moved drastically forward allowing professionals to do their job online everywhere and at anytime. The overhead costs related to taxes, health care or pensions are reduced with the help of these outsourcing experts who work in the software development outsourcing companies go on board as contractors.

Someone might argue that going outsource is a painstaking and time-consuming process. There can be a fabulous exit.

However, if you figure out how to build and set up a project with support from outside engineers, it can help to improve outcomes, economies, efficiencies, and sustainability for business. Sure, a cost is one of the key reasons that most companies consider when outsourcing a product. Outside software experts are compensated way less than those in-house counterparts.

Better Flexibility and Lower Operating Costs – you do not need to purchase equipment or other supplies and things required for the software development. To provide customers with the best possible material handling solution at the reasonable price is one of the main objectives of offshore companies.

Time Management – A proper outsource IT-company should help to meet any strict deadlines and provide the skills and manpower necessary. The outsource companies often provide developers who work nonstop at no additional pay.

True Outsourcing Partner – The aspiration to keep your company functioning at its maximum efficiency is shared by the outsourcing companies, as a business partner.

Enhancements Expenses – As compared with in-house development the employment cost savings can reach high percentage for daily regular tasks in the USA, UK, and Europe.

Risk sharing – Outsourcing projects are thought to be an unfamiliar external team involves greater risks to your business. However, common outsourcing teams are aimed on continuous cooperation with the client as it consist of high-level experienced professionals who care about their reputation in the IT world. This means that they not only take certain responsibilities for the final result but also plan your risks better.

Better efficiency – Skilled professionals are hired by outsourcing partners to their teams and usually have a greater understanding of how your goal can be achieved and they know how to handle different business situations. Taking assistance from your outsourcing partner's knowledge is plain sailing to the successful product you want.

I hope this will give a clear picture of some of the advantages of outsourcing and help you choose more wisely.

RSpec Tutorial – How To Set Up Tests For Ruby/Rails Applications

Like many Ruby developers, the thought of having to test my code sent shivers down my spell. Not only did I have no idea about software testing (IE the regulations etc), but I've never used RSpec before. Fortunately, when I did start using the system, things became much simpler.

Like many Ruby developers, the thought of having to test my code sent shivers down my spell. Not only did I have no idea about software testing (IE the regulations etc), but I've never used RSpec before.

Fortunately, when I did start using the system, things became much simpler.

RSpec is a testing framework for Ruby, and Rails. The system is extremely versatile, and meant to provide a simple framework for testing various features within applications or plugins.

The system works as intuitively as possible – meaning that each “test” is meant to deliver an expected result – allowing the developer to create an effective overview of the various pieces of functionality of a system, as well as giving the ability to extend the scope as required.

I will explain how it works in this post …

What Is RSpec?

RSpec is a freely open source “gem” for Ruby, maintained by the core Ruby group.

The gem is available on Github, along with a number of others – most notably the “rspec-rails” gem (which was specifically designed for Rails).

The gem basically provides developers with a “framework” which can be called via the “rspec” command. This allows for integration with CI suites such as TravisCI and CoverAlls.

The point of having the likes of RSpec is to facilitate the creation of “unit tests” and “integration tests” – both of which are being a staple of the traditional software development pipeline.

Having the ability to thoroughly, and extensively, test a Ruby application – with a framework which is ubiquitous and extensible as the language itself – is one of the reasons why the Ruby ecosystem is held in such high regard.

For the first time, without the need of expensive software or large IDE integration – teams of developers can create software that works across platforms and technology-sets.

Thus, when considering developing in Ruby, the undering value of RSpec can not be overstated.

How It Works

RSpec has to be initialized within a plugin / application.

It typically lives in the “spec” directory – but this can also be “test”.

To initialize RSpec – like most things in Ruby, it's best to follow the guidelines of what's already been developed – by using the “rspec –init” CLI command.

Initializing the framework populates the / spec folder with a “spec_helper.rb” file and populates it with a base amount of configuration options.

The “spec_helper.rb” file sits at the core of all RSpec functionality, and is thus extremely important.

Within the file, all of the configuration settings for an application are stored. This is where you are meant to include the various files required to get the test suite integrated into your script / application.

If you're able to run the “rspec –init” command (after adding “rspec” to your script's Gemfile), you'll be set to start the next step.

Setting It Up

After getting the “spec helper” set up, the next step is to get the various elements of the integration suite called.

This is a certain manual process, and – particularly if using Rails – can involve some steps outside the “traditional” rulebook.

The most important step in this case is to get a “dummy” Rails app set up.

I will not go into too much detail, but it's required if you're creating a rails gem (for example), and not something that can be done directly through rspec itself.

To do this, you need to basically create a fake “engine” from which you're able to extract the dummy Rails app:

  cd some_path_where_your_engine_IS_NOT 

rails plugin new YOUR_ENGINE_NAME –mountable –dummy-path = spec / dummy –skip-test-unit

  mv YOUR_ENGINE_NAME / spec / dummy / real / path / to / YOUR_ENGINE_NAME / spec 

rm -rf YOUR_ENGINE_NAME

This creates a / spec folder with a dummy Rails app, spec_helper.rb and another file which is not important.

Doing the above ensures that RSpec is set up correctly for Rails.

Again, without having the details on your specific application – if you need further information, you're welcome to email me (email in profile).

Performing Tests

Once you've got rspec set up, you need to sort out the tests.

This is a reliably simple process – it just takes some time to figure out the various methods through which you're able to ascertain particular results.

The most important thing to state is that there are a number of different types of test:

  • Routing tests
  • Controller tests
  • Model tests
  • Feature tests
  • View tests
  • Mailer tests

There are two ways to make sure these work – either by creating folders within your main / spec folder (/ spec / models or / spec / features etc) OR to simply use the “type :: feature” option when declaring tests.

The way this works becomes clearer when you consider how tests actually work.

Every “test” in RSpec needs to be wrapped in a “describe” block. Each file needs to pull from the RSpec class proper (RSpec.describe ___), but all the others can just be “describe”:

# spec / models / model_spec.rb

RSpec.describe Model do

describe “has email method” do

it {___}

end

end

The way you create your tests is with the “it” method – used to describe (as verbosely as possible) what each feature is meant to do.

Within the “it” block, you're able to use a number of different methods, ranging from “expect” to “should” – to provide the system with the ability to determine the particular results required from the script / application.

From here, you're able to then create in-context placeholders, using such methods as “let” to provide context for each test.

Whilst I could write more tests, the bottom line is that this should give you a strong overview as to what's required to get it all working. After this, you just need to be able to write as many tests as required.

How (Artificial Intelligence) AI Will Attract Android Users

Android is another platform that Google has focused upon and their efforts are clearly visible – Android occupations more than 87.9% market share. With the latest Android P right around the corner, it looks like a good time to take the best of both worlds – Machine Learning and Android and showcase why Android is…

Android is another platform that Google has focused upon and their efforts are clearly visible – Android occupations more than 87.9% market share. With the latest Android P right around the corner, it looks like a good time to take the best of both worlds – Machine Learning and Android and showcase why Android is more than likely to beat its competitors using Google's mammoth like intelligence prowess and why AI will attract everyday users as well as developers.

Here are a few reasons why.

Google Assistant

Google announced its virtual helper back in May of 2016 during its annual conference, Google I / O. Google described it as a “conversational assistant” and hoped that it would provide “an ambient experience that extends across devices”. And the feedback received has been mostly positive.

Of course, Google is not alone in making an attempt at lending a software hand to its users. In fact, it is not even the first – Apple released a beta version of Siri with its iPhone 4S almost a decade ago, October 2011. To say that software such as Siri has come a long way in these 7 years would be a gross understatement. It seems like every tech giant is releasing their own assistants every other week. While the more prominent ones are Microsoft's Cortana, Amazon's Alexa, Samsung's Bixby, Google's Assistant, and Apple's Siri, nearly every review from professional testers reveals the one that manages to swing almost everything they throw at them. And that's the Google Assistant.

It has proven its mettle countless number of times in tasks ranging from speech recognition and contextual understanding to providing concise yet verbose information to any questions the user may make.

Some would say it's years ahead of other virtual assistants despite and advances like the Duplex is just confirming this.

AI Powered Apps

Tech giants are recognizing the importance of incorporating machine learning into their products and as our systems keep getting more powerful and people generate more data than ever, it's no wonder why they do so. This is evident from companies adopting and promoting intelligent computations.

Apple has been urging developers to utilize it's relatively new CoreML framework that can be used to train machine learning modules for developing apps for iOS. It's too early to make a judge on this step by Apple, but it's quite safe to say that the red fruit iPhone manufacturer is late to the party.

Google released an open source framework called Tensorflow back in 2015 after it was tested and developed internally for more than 4 years. It has since gained the badge of industry standard and is one of the most active repository on GitHub. It was developed with developers in mind and has multiple ports for different operating systems and supports multiple programming languages ​​as well so a developer feet right at home.

Tensorflow Lite is Google's aim at having native support for it's deep learning models in Android phones. Apps like Gmail are already putting this into use by featuring something called “Smart Replies” that basically just try to understand the situation and context on an email received and will display a few options that might make for a good reply to the mentioned. Another famous app is Photos by Google that uses deep learning, a popular form of machine learning, to recognize people from pictures stored on the smartphone and suggest possible options such as sharing them with the person themselves or create an entirely new album for them.

Long story short, Google has already starting rolling apps like Translate, Assistant, Photos, Gmail, etc and has made the necessary tools for developers to do the same with their own. Which brings us to the next topic –

Extremely Well Developer Support

Google has always been a loved one by developers. Besides offering great opportunities such as GSOC, it has released open source libraries such as scikit-learn and TensorFlow that have been hugely popular and successful within the developer community.

Even Android, being open source, offers a lot of flexibility for developers and so, naturally, developers will be much more focused towards building scalable, optimized apps for this platform.
Google wants more and more people to enter this field of machine and has made efforts to do so. One such instance is it's Machine Learning Crash Course. It's a scratch course aimed at developers with almost no previous experience in the field of AI. It guides the user from basic linear algebra concepts to state of the art convolutory neural networks.

Android developers were given attention with the announcement of Tensorflow Lite that is an ecosystem for the said platform. It works smoothly with the official Android IDE, Android Studio to develop apps with the same level of consistency as before.

Google Duplex

Google did not fail to make the jaws of visitors and the viewers of its developer conference for 2018 drop to the ground in pure awe. It showcased something the developers at Google had been hard at work at, named Google Duplex.

It's an extension of the already powerful Google Assistant that helps the user get through his / her day by making appointments or bookings for services such as ordering food from a store that does not have an online presence or fixing a haircut from a salon for the user.

It was presented by Sundar Pichai, leaving the audience clapping their hands away. And why would not they? They witnessed an age-old test called the Turing Test that was supposedly to be almost a decade away from being solved, annotated albeit in a very specific manner.

How Dynamic Web Applications Are Changing the Product Advancement Diversion

Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Apple have all attempted to present this new standard – web applications that carry on like local applications.

Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Apple have all attempted to present this new standard – web applications that carry on like local applications. The advantages are various – a dynamic web application can be specifically refreshed on the server, there's no compelling reason to present the updates to various application stores, and one and the same application can keep running crosswise over various stages and programs.

A current report proposals that PWAs frequently beat their partners. The Pinterest PWA saw a 40 percent expansion in time individuals spent on the site in contrast with the past portable form. The promotion income additionally spiked by 44 percent. Lancôme additionally profit by PWA advancement – responsiveness time went down 84 percent, which added to a 17 percent expansion in changes.

The advantages for clients are clear and simple to see. Adaptability is one of the fundamentals yet it's not the absolute most significant factor.

Advantages

Application stores have strict controls regarding when and how new applications and overhauls can be presented. With PWAs, engineers are never again constrained by the tenets, limitations, and conditions that apply to application store items.

PWAs additionally make it conceivable to conquer another comparable issue designers confrontation – application exhaustion for the benefit of clients. A 2017 comScore archive called the 2017 US Versatile Application Report recommends that more than 50 percent of cell phone clients in the US download zero applications for each month. We as a whole recall the days when applications were something new and energizing. Telephones were loaded with heaps of applications (regardless of whether these were used consistently or not). The 2017 report demonstrates this time is finished and the normal cell phone client has lost a great deal of the intrigue that already filled application investigation.

There are more reasons why organizations bought to think about doing the change to PWAs. Specialists from programming advancement organization Itransition have recorded the most vital of them:

PWA accompaniment a disconnected mode – an issue that standard local applications are as yet trying to overcome. The data as of now got to by the client will be accessible even without a web association.

Execution is improved through a quicker stacking time, paying little respect to the sort of substance that the application highlights. The objective is profitable through the alleged administration specialists – an element that works independently from the site and just claims crude information to limit the exchange.

Gadget particular equipment highlights can be executed through dynamic web applications. Message pop-ups are one such component. The designer has a measurable measure of control over the message pop-ups and the way in which these could be utilized for advertising purposes. A pop-up message can give the data about a blog entry that has quite recently been distributed. On the other hand, it can empower the immediate buy of a web based business thing that the client takes after or that has quite recently moved towards becoming reduced, for instance. The potential opportunities are various and inquire about so far proposals that pop-up messages are getting perused more than email bulletin boards or the announcements sent by web-based social networking.

PWA center around the client encounter. They emulate local applications yet as of now said, do not have a portion of the weaknesses. The connection is smooth and exceedingly captivating, much the same as the experience being offered by a local application. PWAs were initially expected for versatile. The manner by which they have grown, be that as it may, has transformed them into the ideal answer for review on a wide range of screens and by means of every single conceivable program.

In any case, PWA likewise have a few drawbacks. For instance, they are not bolstered by iOS gadgets. In the photo underneath, you can see a nitty gritty correlation of PWAs with local and cross-stage applications.

Creating Dynamic Web Applications

There are still difficulties and specifics with regards to the improvement of PWAs. Certain criteria must be met for the application to qualify as dynamic.

Google Code Labs gives broad data and openings that could add to PWAs having a scope of usefulness like what local applications bring to the table.

On the off chance that you have at all no learning in the field and you're simply beginning , the Google Dynamic Web Application Agenda will be a decent place to begin at. For more specialized data, the accompanying Google control features the basics well ordered.

Some bolder forecasts recommend that PWAs will supplant local applications sooner rather than later. PWAs appeared in 2015 and their prevalence has been developing from that point onward. The inborn adaptability is one of the highlights bringing about a high selection level. Subsequently, significant organizations from Twitter to Starbucks have just delivered a variety of effective PWA tests. The time might be ideal for you to change from local and to start encountering the natural advantages dynamic web applications.

The python programming language is a modern web programming language that was originally conceived and developed by Guido van Rossum in the 1980s. Since that time, Python has evolved into a high-performance programming language that is modular and extensible. Some of the largest websites in the world are utilizing Python such as YouTube, Disqus, and Reddit. Python offers a number of features that make it an attractive programming platform including stability, portability, object-oriented development, a powerful standard library, and a wealth of third-party modules or packages.

Stability

Python has been under active development since the late 1980s and is considered a mature programming language. The developers of the Python language conduct extended functionality and regression testing to ensure the language remains bug-free and stable with each new release.

Portability

Python programming offers a number of features that make it an attractive option for web application development. Python applications are portable due to the fact that python interpreters are available for all modern operating systems and some embedded computing systems.

Object-oriented Development

The object-oriented nature of Python makes it an ideal first language for new programmers and easy to learn for programmers migrating to Python from other object-oriented languages. Python programming is intuitive and reinforces good program structure and object-oriented methodologies.

Standard Library

The standard Python library offers developers a plethora of features comparable to more complex languages ​​such as C ++ while maintaining simple and approachable language syntax. Comprehensive file-based I / O, database interaction, advanced exception handling and a host of built in data types make Python appropriate for both web applications and general purpose programming. This makes python web programming an easy task for application developers seeking to transition to web application development.

Third Party Modules

Python is known for being a comprehensive language with extended functionality included in the standard library. However, the growing popularity of python programming has led to a wide array of third-party packages, or modules, that extend Python's functionality and allow the language to deal with unique programming challenges. For example, modules are available for handling non-standard database interactions and advanced cryptography functionality. There are also modules available for dealing with common tasks such as reading file metadata, rendering charts and compilation Python applications into standardized executable applications. Python web programming is made easier due to the availability of many web-centric modules to handle tasks such as e-mail, maintaining HTTP state, interacting with JavaScript, and other common web development tasks.

In website development, it is very critical to choose the optimum colors for the web pages. Choosing the perfect blend is important in order to effectively communicate the message among the visitors, and create brand awareness. So here, we will see some tips to choose the color scheme of a website.

Understand the colors:

You may not know, but every color is associated with a specific thought or feeling. So it is very important to understand the significance of these colors so that you could communicate your correct purpose among the viewers. Let us see some of the colors as example:

Red: This color stimulates the mind and tickle the senses, and therefore, often used to alert or alarm people, for example – warning labels and stop signs. Red is also known to enhance appetite which is probably why it is so frequently used in the fast food industry by companies like McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's etc. Make sure you never overdo this color, as it can make people feel overwhelmed or intimidated.

Yellow: It is the color of cheery or warm feeling. However, make sure you never used it as text as yellow text on a white background is near the hardest thing to read.

Blue: It is the color of trust, loyalty and safety. Many of the e-commerce sites also have a touch of blue to convey trust. However too much of blue may appear boring or old fashioned.

Green: This color represents nature and health. It is associated with environment friendly products.

White: White representations purity, cleanliness and innocence. Doctors are the best example.

Black: Black conveys authority, frequently used for policemen, FBI agents, etc. Furthermore, it is the best color for text.

Once you understand the meaning of each color, you will be able to choose the right blend that convey the appropriate message to the target viewers.

Keep strong contrast between background and text

It is very important to keep contrast between the background and text written on a web page. The best combination for readability is black text on white background, however there are many other excellent combinations also available. Apart from white, other effective background colors are dark blue, gray and black.

Use online tools

There is a wide range of color scheme tools available on the web. You can use any of these tools to get the right blend that meets the requirements of your website. You can first pick a lead color for the site and then check the suggested colors that go with it. Some of these color tools also have pre-made color schemes where you just need to browse and select a color scheme that appeals to you.

Keep it simple

At last, the most important thing; always keep it simple. Implementing too many colors on a web page can be confusing or overwhelming to the viewers. A confused viewer may end up becoming the customer of some other company with better website. Use color combinations judiciously, so as to keep the effect maximum on to your audience, even while keeping it simple.

So, these were some general tips to help you out with the color scheme of your website. When you hire web designer, make sure that he uses them as and when required. It will help you transform your audience into your potential customers, and amplifying your business prospects.
