UltraWebGrid Cell and CellItem

.Net No Comments »

if you have an UltraWebGrid with a TemplatedColumn, the TemplatedColumn has a checkbox or any other control. If you want to access the control inside that column here’s what you need to do:

  1. assuming you have a loop cycling through the rows
  2. Dim rw As UltraWebGrid.UltraGridRow = UltraWebGrid1.DisplayLayout.Rows(i)
  3. Dim cl As UltraWebGrid.UltraGridCell = rw.Cells.FromKey("myColumnName")
  4. Dim col As Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.TemplatedColumn = cl.Column
  5. Dim ci As Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebGrid.CellItem = col.CellItems(i)
  6. Dim chk As CheckBox = ci.FindControl("myCheckBoxID")

now you can access that checkbox and do whatever you want with it.

CSS float keep element inside DIV

HTML No Comments »

If you have come across the problem of containing floats, then there’s a simple fix to your problem. Typical scenario, you have an img tag (image) inside a div tag. The img is set to float (left of right), and the div tag is not big enough to contain all the img, so the img sticks out. The solution: hr tag at the bottom of the div tag, with the following CSS:

div.item hr { display: block; clear: left; margin: -0.66em 0; visibility: hidden; }

cell padding problem with older browsers

HTML No Comments »

I came across this problem with older browsers. If your table cell uses percentage for padding, for example:

<td style=”padding-right:1%”>text</td>

then that cell will expand off the screen.

Instead, use pixels for measurement, for example:

<td style=”padding-right:15px”>text</td>

Upload file timeout

.Net, ASP No Comments »

if your webpage submits a file for uploading, and the page returns an error on larger file sizes, then look for 2 attributes to modify in your web.config .

open you web.config file and seach for the following line:

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="480" maxRequestLength="7168"/>

executionTimeout is the time limit before the request timesout and you get an error, this figure is represented in seconds (480 = 8 minutes)
maxRequestLength is the file size represented in KB (1024 = 1MB, 7168 – 7MB)

When I was new to Linux, I needed to use the graphical interface to perform regular management tasks. After installing Ubuntu 8.04, setup was complete and I was left with a command line interface. Now what?
Here is how I loaded the beautiful graphical interface (gnome):

sudo aptitude update
