Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Query show selected columns

    Posted 22 May 2015

    It should be and [discontinued]='0' (without 'where').

    Assuming discontinued is a numeric field then you also do not need apostrophes around the value.
  2. In Topic: How to convert text field data into HL7 format

    Posted 22 May 2015

    You switched from WriteLine to Write. Switch back to using WriteLine throughout, or append Environment.NewLine.
  3. In Topic: Short Amortization Calculation For 3 days

    Posted 22 May 2015

    What errors appear in your browser's console?
        totalPrincipalPaid.value = p * periodInterest;
    

    totalPrincipalPaid is a simple variable, it does not have a 'value' property. p is also assigned a value, it does not, in turn, have a 'value' property.

    (I don't know about adobe forms, but I doubt very much that it will impact the behaviour of declared JS variables.)
  4. In Topic: Chess Board and Moving Pieces in C++

    Posted 22 May 2015

    The traditional, relative values of chess pieces are 1, 3, 5, and 9. These are relative values so they are unaffected when multiplied by 100, which may make other arithmetic easier to work with: keeping everything as integer values.

    The bishop is often considered to be of more value than the knight (depending on the position) so I assume the author has increased its value slightly from 300 to 305.

    The king is priceless, so I assume that 2000 was chosen as an arbitrarily high value.

    I suppose modifying the values shouldn't be an issue, but the author would have to confirm this (or you could study the code).

    This comment in the code:
    // we will make them constants, so that if at any time we want to change their values we can do so here
    

    suggests that the author anticipated that these values could be changed.
  5. In Topic: [link] HTML Canvas Deep Dive

    Posted 22 May 2015

    Thanks for the response, although.. I am not the author of the tutorial ;)

    Interactive tutorials are an interesting innovation, although I suspect that the more popular approach will be to embed CodePens, or jsFiddle or Try It, areas that people can use to experiment with without leaving the page. (I have noticed more and more articles and tutorials embedding CodePens or similar.)

    Being able to drag stuff around and immediately see the effect is novel, but requires much more effort from the author to give this feature educational value, rather than just being a gimmick. The dragging needs to demonstrate, or emphasize, a particular feature, and not just be included because we can.
