Text of tip/guest/space reserved on a digital editing field / password

Hi all

I am introducing the rapids/tips for the edit fields text in my application. I capture the key in the api keyChar() and therefore

  • show the cue text if the field is empty
  • hide the cue already displayed text when the first character is entered

According to me, one way to do this is to paint your index directly on the EditField.  This way, the EditField never sees.  And you can paint it in a light color to indicate clearly what is not actually entered.

Here is an example of code, note that I cut/pasted it from a working application, but changed a few things that I think are not - but it could have messed up it completely...

private BasicEditField _searchField = new BasicEditField ("", "") {}
String emptyString = "search by input characters;
Protected Sub paintBackground (Graphics g) {}
g.setBackgroundColor (0x00FFFFFF);
g.Clear ();
protected void paint (Graphics g) {}
oldColor int = g.getColor ();
try {}
g.setColor (0x00000000);
Test string = super.getText ();
If (test == null | test.length ())< 1="" )="">
g.setColor (0 x 00808080);
g.drawText (emptyString, 0, 0);
Super.Paint (g);
} {Finally
g.setColor (oldColor);

  • Excluding spaces reserved Site Recovery Manager of Get - VM

    I'm trying to get information about the virtual computer both my Center Virtual primary and backup my site.  The backup site has VM and placeholders SRM.  A VM - Get returns the virtual machines and the spaces reserved.  I would only have the details of the virtual machines.  I thought that this statement would make me what I was looking for, but it returns no results.

    Get - VM | where ($_.) ExtensionData.Config.ManagedBy.Type - not "placeholderVm")

    any help on how to do this would be appreciated.

    Condition that you did not indicate a key extension customized for SRM fictional settings, you could test for the extensionKey property

    Get - VM | where {$_.} ExtensionData.Config.ManagedBy.extensionKey - notmatch 'com.vmware.vcDr'}

    An alternative is to query the DB directly, see determine the virtual machines in a stimulus package SRM using PowerShell

    How to set text in an object, so the object expands with the text and has even space on both sides of the object in illustrator cc?


    You can do this:

    (1) create the initial direct Type;

    (2) in the appearance palette dialog, click on add a new fill and define the color as you wish;

    (3) effect > convert to shape > Rectangle corners round/Rectangle/Ellipse and set parent > width/extra height as you wish (essentially what needs to be added to the size of the bounding box, if anything).

    After that you can change the Type and the filled area will fit as shown on the picture.

  • Difference between spaces reserved &amp; formulas


    I used formulas. Placeholders also seems same as formulas, then what is the difference between them and what situation the spaces reserved are useful

    If you have time please let me know the difference...

    Here's the difference...
    Place support column is the column where we can define the global variable and that variable is used in the columns of formula for different calculations. column support palce is a global variable of the report.

    A placeholder is a column for which you set the data type and the PL/SQL value that you set.

    You can set the value of a column in the space reserved for the following locations:

    01.the before report trigger, if the placeholder is a level of report column

    02.A report level formula column, if the placeholder is a level of report column

    03.A formula in the space booked group or group below (the value is defined once for each record in the Group)

    If we want to return multiple values according to our logic we will use place holedr column in the formula column.

    Formula column
    The formula column is used for the calculation of the logic required for the report. formula column will calculate the value based on our logic, it will return a value.
    A column of formulas makes a calculation defined by the user on an another data column (s), including the columns of the placeholder. Colums formula should not be used to set the values for the parameters.

    Hoping to understand...

    I created a custom edit field (code below), but there is no slider or text drawn while typing.

    The text appears if you click another field on the screen, but not while typing. I guess it has something to do with my method of painting, but I don't know?

    Tips for making more effective methos painting would be a bonus!

  • How to paste text in ANY editable field (e-mail, sms, browser, contacts address bar / any other application)


    Can anyone help me please with the following questions:

    1. once I have add a menu item to help

    ApplicationMenuItemRepository.getInstance().addMenuItem(ApplicationMenuItemRepository.MENUITEM_SYSTEM, myMenuItem);

    I am able to access an instance of net.rim.blackberry.api.mail.Message (when I'm in the e-mail editing mode) and put the content in the subject / body of the email, but it was mostly a proof of concept for me.

    What I really want to be able to do, it's automatically access the instance of any editable field in any (RIM / part 3) app that the user cursor is now. When the focus is on something that is not editable, then my menu item should not appear in the menu.

    In addition, it is important for me to know exactly where the cursor is. For example if the cursor is in the middle of the text, then I want that my extraordinary paste paste of stuff there. The same for the selected text - it needs to be replaced.

    Basically I want my menu Paste Special feature works exactly like 'Stick', unless I want to offer which should be pasted.

    2. Apart from curiosity, what are we supposed to go back to the

    public Object run(Object context)

    method? For now, I'm doing my treatment based on the type of control context and make the treatment on it and everything just return null (which works well), but I don't know I'm on some features.

    Never done this, but looking at the API and remembering what simon_hain said when asked a similar question, I think it goes like:

    You can get help from the active screen

    UiApplication.getUiApplication () .getActiveScreen ();

    You can get the Menu for a screen to help

    I think that 'toString' will give you the message, then

  • Get the text in the Edit field


    In my Application, I add a check box and a label field and a field change a grid field Manager. Then this network domain manager, I add several times in Vertical field Manager. So it's looking like list of items. Now, when I checked the box five, trying to get the text of the corresponding edit field.

    This is the code for the domain network manager:

    int c[] = {screenWidth/6, (screenWidth)/3, (screenWidth)/2};
            gm = new GridFieldManager(c, Manager.VERTICAL_SCROLL);
            Logger.out("Grocery", "Here it is coming"+i);
            cbfChecked = new CustomCheckBoxField();
            cbfChecked.setChangeListener(new FieldChangeListener()
                public void fieldChanged(Field field, int context)
                    if(checked[i] == false)
                        checked[i] = true;
                    else if(checked[i] ==  true)
                        checked[i] = false;
                        Logger.out("Grocery", "It is UnChecked" +checked[i]);
            Logger.out("Grocery", "Adding first Label Field");
            LabelFieldCustom lfFrom = new LabelFieldCustom((String) m_vtrItems.elementAt(i),Color.BROWN,FONT_FAMILY_0_SF_AS_16,Field.FIELD_LEFT);
            Logger.out("Grocery", "Adding second Label Field");
            efcAmount = new EditFieldCustom(Bitmap.getBitmapResource("dob_text_box.png"), 25);
            efcAmount.setMargin(new XYEdges(30, 0, 0, 0));
            return gm;

    Here I add the grid domain manager several times:

    for (int i = 0;i < m_vtrItems.size();i++)
                vfm.add(new SeparatorField(SeparatorField.NON_FOCUSABLE));

    Here is the snapshot of my screen:

    Please help me.

    You can access the field by index (prone to errors if).
    or you could save your fields in a data structure, such as a hash table, with the checkboxfield as key to the editfield as value.

  • text of space reserved and box-sizing: border-box

    Hey guys,.

    I'm on a mac (10.9.3) under FireFox 30.

    I have the old * {box-sizing: border-box ;} thing put in place on my page.} In doing so, my input placeholder text appears, but not in Chrome and Safari.

    When I replace the box numbers on the input to the content box, the placeholder text is displayed.

    I probably wouldn't share the url, but here, you're going to: http://bluescape.jacobdubail.com/ click on search in the nav link to view the entry.

    Thank you

    This entry has a rule of departure of height: 0px.

    When you click the search button, the height remains at zero with box -: border to resize-box but becomes 20px with box-sizing: content-box.

    Is it because zero height is not allowed with content-box or because the script does something different in the two cases? Hmm...

  • How to use the text space reserved Point of insertion properly?

    My problem is double here, and there may be a response that connects these two problems...

    1. when I add a text field on stage and do a right click on this text field, I can't add a Point of Insertion in order to display the placeholder text

    2. when I add a subform on stage, I can then add a Point of Insertion in the subform, but when I Preview in PDF or save this document in PDF format and click on the text in support of place that it does not go far.  She stayed there.

    I discovered that my concern was not with the insertion points, but with putting shaped on a text field in the object Panel.  Now I can display placeholder text, which will then disappear once typed by the user in the field.

  • French layout of the text and non-breaking space

    I do speak french at all and for me is really (really) a lot of time to verify if all the text that my company gave me the right text formatting.

    We have a lot of years translated user manuals there is inside our company and without space between punctuation right. The problem is that, in the same document, I have some parts of the text by a professional translator with all the right spaces and other parts without any extra space...
