Today we’ll see how to create a testimonial ticker using jQuery and setInterval to switch in and out of different texts.
It’ll display one testimonial at a time before cycling through to the next testimonial. It’s very light weight, fast and easy to understand.
Let’s get to it!
Hey there. Today I took a gander at my DreamInCode library I released for .NET and decided to merge it over to Github.
The source code is very easy to follow and hopefully I managed to clean out a lot of the cruft and over engineering I managed to cram in the previous version.
This time it’s simple, clean and barebones.
Internet Explorer just keeps biting us web developers in the ass and we have no choice but to find work arounds.
After toying around with SignalR on my MVC3 application, I tested things out in IE 8. Surprise surpise. It didn’t work.
When you run your application in Internet Explorer you’ll see this dreaded icon on the bottom left.
This post is based on Scott Hanselman’s SignalR post – but tweaked for MVC3. Source.
This is getting my vote for Tool of The Year™ 2011.
As it’s description states in their GitHub page:
Async signaling library for ASP.NET to help build real-time, multi-user interactive web applications.
In a nutshell SignalR lets you communicate with clients on your website in real time. Imagine Comet implementation without all the fuss. Dead easy to setup, dead easy to work with, fast as holy hell. Yes – I’m excited.
I’m going to show you how to build a small chat application using SignalR in an MVC3 application.
This is our end result:
The user is going to click on the link, and using AJAX we’re going to fetch the result and update the value on the screen. All without doing a complete page refresh.
Today I’m going to show you how to create an editor template for DateTime objects in your model.
This is what we’re aiming for. A label for our input, and when the input has focus we should display a nice DatePicker widget kindly provided for free by the excellent jQueryUI library.
So in my application, I found myself needing a way to get business days for a given month. It’s for student attendance, so I only need to get the days from Monday through Friday for a given month.
Hopefully someone finds this useful. 🙂
