Little Jessica can get pretty excited and pull some seriously cute faces over little things that tickles her fancy, one in particular being Oupa Monty’s ringtone that mimics the sounds of guinea fowl. Unfortunately for us though, replicating her normal behaviour for the camera proves to be a virtually impossible task, thanks to her mutant ability to detect recording devices and then stop producing whatever action it was that you wished to record and save for prosperity in the first place! (Seriously, at this rate someone will have to make up stuff for the life reel to be played at her wedding/bachelorette party one day!) Anyway, this is pretty much all we got: …and this… and this: Yeah, not much to go on I’m afraid, so you’ll just have to take my word for it! :)
With the release of the powerful jQuery Mobile 1.0 framework, it is now becomes possible for pretty much anyone to crank out an uber slick HTML 5 website that looks like a ‘native app’ on just about any mobile device. However, one of the things that does break on implementation is the trusty old form file upload element, the result of the nifty AJAX-driven page load system that jQuery Mobile uses. (AJAX doesn’t allow file transfers as a security feature). Luckily for us though, there is a way to re-enable form file uploads with the only sacrifice being the slick page load, which when you think of it, isn’t such a big sacrifice now that you have the ability to launch files up to your web service once more! In short, what we want to do is instruct the jQuery Mobile framework to not process the form submit event as an AJAX call. To do this, the following “data-ajax” element property needs to be added to your form declaration: <form method=”POST” enctype=”multipart/form-data” action=”process_update.php” data-ajax=”false”> Simple as that.
Nowadays, Jessica is actually a lot less squirmy worm in her cot when she sleeps, meaning that we now seldom arrive in her room the next morning and have to launch an area wide search of the cot to locate her. But back in the day, oh, back in the day…
Craig Lotter is an established web developer and application programmer, with strong creative urges (which keep bursting out at the most inopportune moments) and a seemingly insatiable need to love all things animated. Living in the beautiful coastal town of Gordon's Bay in South Africa, he games, develops, takes in animated fare, trains under whichever martial arts dojo is closest at the time, and for the most part, simply enjoys life with his amazing wife and daughter.
Oh, and he draws ever now and then too.
This is a collection of things that he has managed to find the time to scribble down since 2007.
