  • Real World Dojo part Six: File Compression

    The PointIn the last installment, I covered how to create your own custom components. This time I&#39;m going to tackle something that should have been much less involved. For every page request that uses that file uploader, I wind up downloading approximately a bazillion .js files.&nbsp; Reasonable caching should cut that down so it only happens ...

  • Real World Dojo part 5: Custom Components

    IntroductionIt turns out that the file upload piece from last time (the User Feedback article) is going to be used over and over.&nbsp; And that I need to attach a drop-down to let the uploader specify what kind of license is associated with the file.&nbsp; In the dot net world, I&#39;d be tempted to slap the code into a user control and keep ...

  • Real World Dojo part Four: User Feedback

    So now we have a simple form that uses AJAX to upload a file and submits some metadata for the server to associate with that file. It doesn&#39;t really give any useful feedback, though.&nbsp; No real end-user&#39;s going to read the console, I&#39;m not actually doing anything with the file upload progress, and using an alert to show that the ...

  • Real World Dojo part Three: AJAX

    When we finished up last time, we had an AJAX-ified form that uploads an image file. The problem now is that the &quot;metadata&quot; (the name and URL) are being completely ignored.&nbsp; It&#39;s ugly, but try adding them as GET variables to the upload path: It seems like I should just be able to update the uploadUrl right before calling ...

  • Real World Dojo part Two: File Upload

    In my last post, I wrote about my research into doing client-side validation with Dojo (disclaimer, in case you haven&#39;t seen this a billion times before: this can never be trusted server-side...this is only a convenience for the client, not a security thing). There&#39;s a long story in that post, but the short version is that we came up ...

  • Real World Dojo part One: Form Validation

    Real World Dojo, part One (Basic Validation) The Scenario: Ive kind of been nibbling around the edges of Dojo for a while, but Im at a place in this project where I really need to buckle down and learn it. Since Im having so much trouble finding real-life examples of the basics, I figured Id share what Im coming across. I have a very ...

  • Manipulating the DOM with Dojo

    This is the area where jQuery rules the roost. Or so everything I&#39;ve read tells me.&nbsp; So, how does Dojo stack up? Still running this in parallel with Kyle&#39;s series:Setting the contents of an element// Convenience function to hide query details var element = dojo.byId(&#39;whatever&#39;); element.innerHTML = &quot;Change to ...

  • Selectors in Dojo

    Selecting elements in dojo is really a very tiny piece of what it does.&nbsp; It uses CSS 3 selectors.&nbsp; If you haven&#39;t looked into them, check out CSS 3 selectors explained. It&#39;s a little disheartening, because IE still doesn&#39;t support most of these features (the IE 8 beta seems to have limited and buggy CSS 2.1 support), but dojo ...

  • VB.NET vs C#

    If you&#39;re familiar with a wide variety of programming languages/environments, C# and vb.net look like pretty much the same language.&nbsp; C# looks a little lower level, a little grittier, because it uses brackets instead of begin/end (or whatever vb.net uses).&nbsp; It does tend to get new language features first, while the vb.net team seems ...

  • Net Neutrality

    Net Neutrality advocates tell us that, if ISPs are allowed to pick and choose what kind of bandwidth they throttle the most, they&#39;ll, of course, discriminate against their competitors.&nbsp; Being the giant, evil, corrupt corporations they are (this is Microsoft and Google talking, BTW), they can&#39;t be trusted to play fair.&nbsp; ...
