GNU find – A Multidimensional Tool

by I am Techie on November 25, 2010

Beginners are mostly afraid of command prompt.  Whenever they see a command prompt, they immediately say “its very difficult”.  But it’s not true.  The Command prompt is as friendly as GUI (Graphical User Interface), provided if you use it with proper procedure. Most people use GUI tools to search for files.  They don’t realize that they can use command line tools to search for them as well! GNU ‘find’ is such like a tool which can not only search files but can even copy, move or delete these files on the fly

Persisting Filter condition in EP Grid In AX 2009, EP grid control comes with an advanced filter. Here is a code to persist the filter condition the user last entered in a page for that user, so that later when the user comes back to the same page the last filter is applied and user didn’t have to reenter then. This code sample assumes a dataset with the name “EPSalesTableList” which contains the datasource “SalesTable” (1) First override the pack method of the dataset ( EPSalesTableList in this…( read more )

Technical Book Club: Code Complete – High-Quality Routines

by on August 25, 2009

I first encountered routines in QBasic, around the time I started high school. I had been using GOTO and GOSUB commands in GW-BASIC for quite some time, but in QBasic, you had the ability to separate the code out from your main program, and to isolate variables from each other. Once I got the hang of the concept, it made programming much easier, and decreased the number of errors I had in a program quite substantially, since I could more easily isolate code, and look at a single block at a time, without having to scroll back and forth through the program (At the time, I was using a DOS based editor, so only 24 lines or so could fit on the screen at one time.) Since then, working with routines has become much easier, and the IDEs and supporting tools have improved greatly

Large Xml-documents with an AIF-WebService.

by on August 11, 2009

If you are faced to ‘large’ Xml-documents with AIF-WebServices, you might be faced to difficulties for Inbound and OutBound services. The following two points should be applied for the client app.config, if the client uses the WCF for communicating with the AIF-WebService (Inbound-Services – you are sending large Xml-Documents to the AIF-WebService), and on the server web.config (Outbound-Services – you are receiving large Xml-documents from the WebService) 1) Changing the web.config by adding the…( read more )

Gender information in Employees-form and the Global Address Book (GAB)

by on August 10, 2009

You can open the information about employees with the Global Address Book (Basic/Global Address Book) and with the Employees form (Basic/Employees). Normally it is no problem to modify data in both forms, but unfortunately this is not true for the ‘gender’ property . This information is stored in the DirPersonPartyDetail ( Gender ) and EmplTable (EmplGender) table.
