cool: “A small app to browse through which is what in css” (via: This is why I Code – Google+)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/17

+This is why I Code has pointed me to a really nice app called CSS Vocabulary which interactively shows you what is what in CSS.

Click on the CSS code or the column with CSS syntax elements on the right to see their correspondence.

The app is written by About Ville – Foolproof by design and source code is at the sakamies/css-vocabulary · GitHub repository.

The blog entry is at CSS Vocabulary – Foolproof by design.

.net/C# – Serialize into an XML Fragment – not XML Document – Stack Overflow

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/17

Thanks User Andrew Hare – Stack Overflow for answering this on Stack Overflow.

I’m pretty sure it works in all .NET and C# versions starting with 2.0.

Here is a hack-ish way to do it without having to load the entire output string into an XmlDocument: Read the rest of this entry »

Great Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart (Steve Pomeroy – Google+)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/16

Thanks a lot Steve Pomeroy! And shame on me for finding out (through Michael Panzer, thanks for your notification) this chart only today (he published this chart on 2013-08-20).

Steve’s quote on it:

After struggling with trying to figure out how various pieces fit together, I’ve done some research and put together the complete Android Activity/Fragment lifecycle chart. This has two parallel lifecycles (activities and fragments) which are organized vertically by time. Lifecycle stages will occur in the vertical order in which they’re displayed, across activities and fragments. In this way, you can see how your fragments interact with your activities.

In addition to the attached image, I’ve also got an SVG: http://staticfree.info/~steve/complete_android_fragment_lifecycle.svg which is suitable for printing.

If this is missing lifecycle steps or is inaccurate in any way, let me know so I can update it!

Note: there is also a large bitmap of the chart.

c# – Is there a library that gets the media type and subtype out of a HttpWebResponse/WebResponse ContentType? – Stack Overflow

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/16

Just asked this on SO: C# – Is there a library that gets the media type and subtype out of a HttpWebResponse/WebResponse ContentType?.

Anyone here or at G+ that has a hint?

The ContentType property of (Http)WebResponse maps to the HTTP/1.1 Content-Type which is a Media-Type that contains a type/subtype optionally followed by parameters which are attribute=value pairs.

I’m mainly interested in the type/subtype and the charset parameter.

The charset is mapped from HttpWebRequest.CharacterSet.

Is there a library that just retrieves the media type/subtype of the ContentType?
