Stopping, skype plugin phone number mess-up in design

Recently i came with a problem where one of our website user had skype plugin installed, all phone number replaced with their own “widgets”, that’s breaking the layout:

skype, skype plugin, UI problem, design issue using skype plugin, mess-up phone number

Skype plugin issue

After some googling, i came accross with a fix which tells the skype plugin not to replace any phone number on a webpage, Simply add the following in code in top of your head <head> section:

<meta name=”SKYPE_TOOLBAR” content =”SKYPE_TOOLBAR_PARSER_COMPATIBLE”/>

It’s quite handy, when you are tooooooo choooooosy for your webpage design 🙂

Forgot to mention subject while mailing through Outlook..here is the solution

In case you need a prompt in Outlook to remind you that you have forgotten to type the subject in your email,

Use the tip mentioned to receive a prompt message.

  1. Open your outlook
  2. Press Alt+F11. This opens the Visual Basic editor and then Press Ctrl+R which in turn open Project-Project 1 (left side)
  3. On the Left Pane, one can see “Microsoft Outlook Objects” or “Project1”, expand this. Now one can see the “ThisOutLookSession”.
  4. Double click on “ThisOutLookSession”. It will open up a code pane on the right hand side.
  5. Copy and Paste the following code in the right pane. (Code Pane) and save it
    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)Dim strSubject As String
    strSubject = Item.Subject
    If Len(Trim(strSubject)) = 0 Then
    Prompt$ = "Subject is Empty. Are you sure you want to send the Mail?"
    If MsgBox(Prompt$, vbYesNo + vbQuestion + vbMsgBoxSetForeground, "Check for Subject") = vbNo Then
    Cancel = True
    End If
    End If
    End Sub
  6. Now whenever u try to send a mail without subject, which will raise a pop-up to remind you

🙂 Cheers! 🙂

Combobox using Jquery

jquery.combobox is an unobtrusive way of creating a HTML type combobox from a existing HTML Select element(s).

A combobox is technically a ‘Select’ HTML element. A combobox is also be known as a drop down list.

This control was written due to the fact that the standard Select element cannot be styled, or is limited in what can be styled.
For instance, in Internet Explorer 6,  the individual items in the list (HTML Options) are very restricted in styling, allowing only the background-color and color and a few other CSS properties.

The other reason for creating this control is the need for a simple way of setting up a control. Other custom comboboxes are not so easily setup, requiring technical knowledge before-hand.

The custom combobox relies on the jquery library, without which, this control would not have been created. The jquery library allows a developer to focus on the problems of your specific requirements rather than focus on technical issues surround cross-browser standards and the like.

note: at the moment the jquery.combobox behaves as a dropdown list and not a full combbox. it does not currently accept text input.

features

  • easy to set up
  • control over style of combobox using CSS
  • supports keyboard navigation
  • cross-browser support with firefox 2, internet explorer 6 and opera 9*
  • different style of animation for dropdown
  • original Select html control is still available for access and control and reflects the user’s selection
  • works the same with forms and server-side form processing, retaining the original control’s ID and updated values

* – partial testing in this beta stage of development
