otCalendar Library

What is otCalendar?

ot stands for OnyToo, the name used by the original contributor of this library inside Foxite.  This library, for those who are not familiar yet with this, has two control class, i.e., _calendar and _datepicker.

I actually preferred this over my own datepicker class as his approach on the dropdown portion has appealed very much to me being not constrained to the boundaries of the parent form where the datepicker will be dragged into.  So I ditched my class and use this instead on my own project.

What is new here?

Word Automation - Create Table, Merge Cells

I was pondering a question inside foxite forum about word automation because of the handicap presented by MS that when recording a macro in Word, objects cannot be clicked using mouse.

So the first solution that I can think of is to use keyboard as that is still allowed and that to customize Quick Access Toolbar to include an icon for merging so I can click (and merge cells) for later reviewing of macro recordings.  And this resulted to these codes:

3rd party apps within our forms - Detaching

Yesterday, I gave you the ways to place a 3rd party app inside our form.  Today though I thought "What if my users want to work on those excel file outside on its own after I have shown those inside my form?".  And so I decided to find a way to detach those back outside.

3rd party apps from within our forms

It is now 1:30am and I still can't sleep again so let us make my time a bit useful.

Inspired by what Bernard Bout has shown here, I decided to see earlier today how it can be done on an excel instance.  Please read it (click on here word above) before proceeding below as I will try to break things apart for our better understanding.

More Objects in a Grid Cell - Part III

I shared last time a way to show several objects within a grid's cell and I was surprised that it landed 2nd on my top posts.  Said tutorial and sample uses 4 containers, if I can recall properly, and usage of DynamicCurrentControl.  I did that when I was still in the process of experimenting on my assets masterfile module of which I use a grid with 3 columns with each columns showing different info:

Health Benefits - Super Fruits - Part I

One constant problem that I have is hypertension.  Originally I was given 5mg amlodipine (I won't name the brand) and I constantly argued with my sister who is a head nurse and my mother.. and oh plus my wife... that it does nothing to improve my condition. But one time in December last year I got really sick when I recorded an all time score of 199/113.   Yippee!!!!  Well I sometimes get a higher Diastolic such as 130 but that is the first time my Systolic reached 199 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_pressure).  Only one worm less waiting for a pen?

Anyway, that forced me to experiment increasing my intake from that 5mg to the whole 10mg on that day.  And immediately I felt better (plus 1 hour exercise over my stationary bike to sweat out whatever it is that needs to be sweat out).  Although I do not recommend that you guys do an exercise when having an HBP.  Majority cautions against it.
