Chrome auto fills email and password

July 25, 2014 1 comment

I have recently ran into a weird situation when testing some of my screens with Chrome.  Consider the following screen shot:

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 6.42.36 PM

 

As you can see, Chrome is auto filling my email address and password.  As this is a screen that I am designing, I was very surprised to see this behavior.  It took me a while but I found various solutions to the problem.  The one that I elected to use was more by choice of the designer I have built to create these screens than any other reason.

Place the following code before “Login Email”, as in my example:


<input type="password" style="display:none;" />

As you can see from the code above, we are basically creating an Input tag with the Type of Password.  We also set the Style to Display:None.  This ensures that it isn’t visible and fixes our issue with Chrome.

I hope that this is a temporary fix and that Chrome will work properly in the future but until then, we have ourselves a work around.

Here is a screen shot of the form now working properly:

Mobile First and Responsive Web Design

December 11, 2013 Leave a comment

I had a great time speaking last night to the Charlotte ALT.NET User Group.  My presentation was on Mobile First and Responsive Web Design.

Here are the slides from the presentation.

Thanks to everyone who came out.

Build Your Own Game (BYOG) – Using CreateJS and Box2dWeb

I am excited to be presenting tonight at the Charlotte Game Dev group.

Here is a summary of what we will be presenting:

In this session, we will take a look at what it takes to build your own game using CreateJS and Box2DWeb.

We will look at the code necessary to create a simple game as well as talk about how all the moving parts fit together.

Bring your laptop and come prepared to build an application. We will also showcase how you can take your game and launch it as a native Windows 8 application. This is a great feature of Windows 8 since it natively speaks HTML and JavaScript.

Hope to see all of you there!

I am excited to be presenting tomorrow night at the WNC .NET Developers Guild.

Here is a summary of what we will be presenting:

With social sites becoming so popular like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc, we are reaching a point where consumers are demanding applications and systems that can deliver real-time experiences.  We will look at the landscape and discuss some of the most popular frameworks currently available.  We will also look at the question of ubiquity and how we can leverage good architecture and design to support such models.  Finally, we will take a look a one such architectural approach and look at the pros and cons with such an architecture.

Hope to see all of you there!

Update:  Here is a link to my slide presentation.

Developing Windows 8 – Unable to activate Windows Store app

April 16, 2013 Leave a comment

I have encountered the following error several times and I am sure that I will continue to encounter it in the future.

Unable to activate Windows Store app.  The activate request failed with error ‘This app failed to launch because of an issue with its license.  Please try again in a moment.’

Unable to activate Windows Store app

If you come across this error when you fire up Visual Studio, you may end up doing a lot of things to try to resolve the problem.  Several that come to mind are:

  • Re-starting Windows
  • Re-starting Visual Studio
  • Modifying your package manifest

None of these actually fix them problem.  It turns out that the majority of time that you encounter this problem is because you have already installed the solution into start screen.  I would recommend that anytime you encounter this error, that you always first uninstall the application from the start screen and then try to run it from Visual Studio again.

Hope this helps…

Building Immersive Windows 8 Apps

March 26, 2013 Leave a comment

I am excited to be presenting with my friend Brian Hitney tomorrow night at the Charlotte Enterprise Developers Guild.

Here is a summary of what we will be presenting:

Windows 8 opened up a whole new set of possibilities for application developers in terms of how their applications can interact with the underlying operating system, with other applications as well as with the users. Specifically this includes the ability to utilize Contracts (search, share, settings) to give the impression your application is ‘one’ with the operating system as well as creating live Tiles to allow your application to communicate with the users even when the application is not running. In this session we will take a look at how you can use Contracts and Tiles to provide your application a great user experience and make your users feel truly engaged.

Hope to see all of you there!
