Many developers are mixing the idea of whether an URL is valid or “openable”, that is — any browser is able to open it. Having an URL that matches second condition doesn’t actually mean, that such particular URL is valid. This article tries to deal with this little misunderstanding.
Batch conversion tool (B in main screen or
File > Batch Conversion/Rename) in IrfanView is both flexible and powerful tool that allows you (as menu item says) to: quickly convert many images, quickly rename many files or mix these two operations.
Add All button in mentioned tool’s window is even more powerful, because it lets you add files (to be converted or renamed) from given folder and all subfolders. But not everyone knows, that the same goes for saving converted files. They also can be placed by IrfanView in many folders
Using non-Latin keyboards with Delphi and non-Latin characters in code was always a big problem in Delphi.
To enable correct support in Delphi 10 you have to:
- go to
Tools > Options > Editor Options > Key Mappings,
Use Ctrl-Alt keys.
Hopefully in Delphi 2010 you can do this from IDE settings. You don’t have to play with stupid
.reg files to change some dully strings in Windows Registry, as you were forced in Delphi 5 to achieve the same.
Not being able to delete or rename a file on QNAP via FTP? First thing you have to check, is:
- who is the file owner (it should be your user name) and
- what is file group (it should be
On various occasions QNAP can set it to
admin:administ, which is wrong, in this case.
The same problem will most likely appear, if you access your QNAP via FTP and try to rename or delete a file while using different credentials that were used when uploading that file. If another FTP user uploads a file then only that user can delete or rename or move that file.
If you wish to do this yourself, you have two options:
- use that other user’s credentials (if possible) or
- change owner and a group of that file to you.
The second solution is discussed in this article.Read More “Resolving strange FTP-related issues on your QNAP”
After Deploying a PhoneGap application to iTunes (App Store) and Deploying a PhoneGap app to Google Play articles, here comes the time to deal with Windows Mobile platform and Windows Marketplace. This article should provide you with all the necessary information on how to successfully submit your
.xap file (compiled locally or through Phonegap Bulid) to Windows Marketplace.
By default your PhoneGap application will contain system menu button, even on those systems (Android 4.0+) that doesn’t support this button any more (i.e. applications written for this system should not use this button; it is handled anyway and you can use it, if you really wish to).
On most new devices user pressing this button will be simply ignored by system and nothing will happen. So, this problem reduces itself to purely aesthetic means (whether you care about seeing that unusable button on system bar, when your app is active, or not).
However, there are reports, that PhoneGap applications crashes on small group of devices, when user presses this not handled system menu button. In this case, more radical solutions must be considered.
I’m not really familiar with all config-file possibilities, but perhaps this would solve things:
<gap:config -file platform="android" parent="/manifest/application"> <activity android:launchMode="singleTop"></activity> </gap:config>

There is a lot of unnecessary blah-blah in the Internet about resizing existing VirtualBox disk image without loosing data. In fact, this process is amazingly fast and awfully easy.
Easy, if you smart create dynamically allocated disk. But, who in these days, is using fixed disks? :>Read More “Resize VirtualBox disk image (dynamically allocated) in 30 seconds”
There are so many articles in the Internet (type
Mac OS X virtual machine to Google or your favorite search site to get thousands of them) about running OS X on PC in VirtualBox, that writing another one is just a pure stupidity. Instead, this article includes only a quick check-list to extract essential information from these articles and leave all unnecessary garbage blah-blah behind.
This post is a short version of this article. Refer to it for all details, explanations, solutions for a possible problems and things like that. This guide assume, that you’re installing OS X inside a virtual machine only for one purpose — sending your iOS apps to iTunes through ApplicationLoader program. For this reason, certain parts of original guide are skipped. If you intend to use OS X for other purposes, you may need to enhance your knowledge, by reading missing parts from other sources.
This article is a companion text to Deploying a PhoneGap app to Windows Marketplace and Deploying a PhoneGap application to iTunes (App Store) articles. It provides you with necessary information on how to successfully submit your
.apk file (compiled locally or through Phonegap Bulid) to Google Play.
This article deals about deploying PhoneGap application to Apple App Store. Question: Is it possible without having a real Mac computer or using Mac-lease-like service? The quick an straight answer is: you can’t do this. It was possible around two years ago, but things has changed and s for now (2015) you must have any of above to submit your application to App Store.
This article was initially written on 18 June 2015 and generally updated 15 months later so you’ll find information and examples as they were available in mid-August 2016.
Let’s say, that you need to make a
<a href=""></a> link, that will point you to the very same URL (as page, in which have this link), but to a different port. Even though there are no reasons for not implementing support for links like
<a href=":8080">jump</a>, as of writing this, such support is not implemented in any known browser. And thus, neither this link work nor pure-HTML solution is available.
