File Tracking Client 1.6.5.

Share

Version 1.6.5 of File Tracking Client was released containing bug fixes that are meant to smooth up the whole application.
First of all the windows and dialogs were fixed so if they are rescaled, all their inner components change their size correspondingly. This creates a smooth look and feel on both Windows and Linux platforms because the previous version had big problems from this point of view. In order to make it a good Linux distribution candidate the path there the configuration files are saved was corrected. It is saved now in the $HOME/.FileTrackingClient folder. Beside this, an Ant build script was added in order cu build create the distribution archive for the sources. Previously, there was a building instruction file in the root but it was a bit complicated to follow because there are some cumbersome steps in this process.

Finally, there’s another very important peculiarity of what does Cialis that brings it so high above its alternatives. It is the only med that is available in two versions – one intended for use on as-needed basis and one intended for daily use. As you might know, Viagra and Levitra only come in the latter of these two forms and should be consumed shortly before expected sexual activity to ensure best effect. Daily Cialis, in its turn, contains low doses of Tadalafil, which allows to build its concentration up in your system gradually over time and maintain it on acceptable levels, which, consequently, makes it possible for you to enjoy sex at any moment without having to time it.

Kendo Server Filtering

Share

If you want to enable Server Filtering on Kendo Grid, first step is to tell Kendo that you want to enable that functionality because, by default, the data source performs filtering on client side.

var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
	transport: {
		read: function (options) {
			var filter = options.data.filter;
			/* send the filter to the server*/
			options.success(receivedDataFromServer);	
		}
	},
	serverFiltering: true
});

On the server side you need to map Kendo Filter to a C# Filter class.

public class Filter
{
	public string Field { get; set; }
	public string Operator { get; set; }
	public object Value { get; set; }
	public string Logic { get; set; }
	public IEnumerable<Filter> Filters { get; set; }

SQL Injection. How to prevent it from happening in PHP.

SQL injection as a matter of security can be approached from multiple angles. One must first be sure that the targeted application has a confidential database structure, since this is the main thing that makes SQL injection possible.

Also, it’s important to notice that SQL injection is not something that happens arbitrary or from time to time, it takes place on most known websites. In figure 1 are illustrated the results of a study realized by Ponemon Institute about the intensity at which SQL injection takes place on most websites (year 2013):

When it comes to NULL values, PowerBuilder treats them a little different than other languages. Not only that, when null is added, compared to or concatenated with any variable the entire result will become null, but also when given a null parameter most PowerBuilder functions will simply return NULL and perform no action.

Why Practise Pairing Testing

Testing a new product, feature software or anything IT related, can, at some point, become a bit repetitive. Sometimes looking at the same line, entry, button, etc. can cause you to miss some things or not be able to see anything new. This is why pairing testing can prove to be a very useful testing method since, as the saying goes, two heads (or more) are better than one.
