April 2 2008

Something for me to read: The Highly Extensible CSS Interface. I’ve been meaning to spend more time learning additional web development technologies and this link seems along those lines.

Finding ASP.Net Controls in Repeaters

March 26 2008

Note to myself about how to programmatically reference controls nested in a repeater (among other) web control, In Search Of ASP.Net Controls.

Specifically, I reference the “Finding Controls In Headers and Footers” section. There are descriptions of how to more generally use the FindControl method.

Design Bookmarklet

February 8 2008

Useful looking bookmarklet that gives you access to a web page based grid and rulers, a point-to-point measurement tool, or crosshairs for gathering page coordinates: Allan Jardine | Design. Akin to the Web Developer’s Toolbar as far as usefulness for the web developer.

Calculated Field in Adobe Acrobat Form

January 30 2008

This is a note to myself about the javascript syntax needed to calculate a textbox field on an order form I created. For this example, the price per item is based on the quantity entered via textbox (“text_1”), calculated according to a fixed table that I’ve hard coded. Setting the Event.value property displays the result in the specified textbox.

var qty = this.getField("text_1").value;
var price = 0;
if (qty > 750) {
     price = 275;
 } else if (qty >375) {
     price = 300;
 } else if (qty >175) {
     price = 325;
 } else if (qty >75) {
     price = 350;
 } else if (qty >25) {
     price = 375;
 } else if (qty >1) {
     price = 400;
 } else {
     price = 500;
Event.value = (qty*price);

This code should be added in the Acrobat form text field properties under the “Calculate” tab. Select “Custom Calculation Script”, press the “Edit” button, and add the javascript.
