Got SilverLight!!!!

Yesterday Microsoft announces the much awaited WPF/E branding it as SilverLight. I had not heard some story behind this name still 🙂 I checked it out and downloaded some sample applications, but its really disheartening to see what they have given as samples

Copied the concept of Flex book component which is having less functionality!!!

Definately I am not impressed by this, there is a growing community of Flex developers and we have really good ideas implemented. If you want to compete show us something new and original 😉

If anyone wants to look at it –>

Resizing the Map by dragging the container

I got the question again from Girish 🙂 He was trying to resize the map whenever you try to  change the size of the vdividedbox component.

Here is the link –>

https://digitallyinsane.wordpress.com/2007/04/05/show-the-marker-on-the-map-on-the-click-on-the-map/

I tried to digg in to the problem and found out that if u want to change the size of the map on resizing the container you need to provide the min width and min height in the source provided by yahoo

Check out this article in Flex docs

http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/2/docs/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm?href=00001733.html 

Its saying about setting the minimum height and width of the component and my guess is that u have to set that in the  YahooMapService.as file.

I am trying to look into that but busy with some other work.

Here is one more alternative that can be done

Instead of putting a container inside the vdividedbox and putting a map inside it, put map directly inside the vdividedbox and set the width and height of the yahoo map component as 80% and you will be able to resize it. 😉

Here is the code

<mx:VDividedBox id=”vdb” right=”5″ top=”5″ bottom=”5″ left=”285″ >

<yahoo:YahooMapService
id=”myAS2Map”
UUID=”12345″
swfDomId=”{SWFDOMID}”
apiId=”{YAHOOAPIKEY}”
mapURL = “{MAPSWF}” height=”80%” width=”80%”
x=”10″ y=”10″/>

<mx:Canvas height=”100%” width=”100%” >
<mx:Label
text=”Add Components here”
fontWeight=”bold”/>
</mx:Canvas>
</mx:VDividedBox>

I hope this helps.

If there is anything else do write it to me.

Cheers!

Show the marker on the map on the click on the map

Hi,

Girish had written a comment in my post of Yahoo maps communication toolkit , upto my understanding I think he is trying to put some marker whenever user clicks somewhere on the map.

I tried to solve the problem and was amazed to find out that point object which is returned by the onClick method of the map is of the type string 🙂

So its the question of some string manipulation and some of the type conversion and i am able to show the marker whenever user clicks on the map.

So here is the code I think it might be useful to others also

The new look of Enterprise Application

Hi,

I am hearing lot of stuffs like Web 2.0, RIA and all…  But here is the article that  states the real use of it.

They call it intuitive user interface and thats what these all term like Web 2.0 and RIA mean.

If the user can sense what he needs to do by just looking at the UI of the application there will be a great leap in the future of enterprise application.

I hope we are not eating up the technical writers jobs 🙂

Here is the article that i found interesting from AMR research
