Collection object in Javascript

May 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Often, you’d want to extend the classical Javascript array, and use a collection type object instead. This is a generic collection class that I’ve written:

var Collection=function()
{
// Number of elements in collection
this.count=0;
// The underlying collection
this.collection={};

// Add item to the collection with a named key
this.addWithKey=function(key,item)
{
if(this.collection[key]!=undefined)
return undefined;
this.collection[key]=item;
return ++this.count
}

// Add item to the collection with a GUID key
this.add=function(item)
{
return this.addWithKey(newGuid(),item);
}

// Remove item from the collection by it’s key
this.remove=function(key)
{
if(this.collection[key]==undefined)
return undefined;
delete this.collection[key]
return –this.count
}

// Return one item as specied by key
this.item=function(key)
{
return this.collection[key];
}

// Apply a function on each element in the collection
this.forEach=function(block)
{
for (key in this.collection)
{
if(this.collection.hasOwnProperty(key))
{
block(this.collection[key],key);
}
}
}

// Internal method to generate a Guid
function newGuid() {
var S4 = function() {
return (((1+Math.random())*0x10000)|0).toString(16).substring(1);
};
return (S4()+S4()+”-“+S4()+”-“+S4()+”-“+S4()+”-“+S4()+S4()+S4());
}

// Saves the collection to localStorage
this.Save = function()
{
if (typeof JSON == “undefined”)
{
alert(“Include JSON2.js in order to save this collection”);
return;
}
if (typeof localStorage == “undefined”)
{
alert(“Browser does not support localStorage”);
return;
}
var strJson = JSON.stringify(this);
localStorage.setItem(‘collection’, strJson);
return strJson;
}

// Loads the collection from localStorage
this.Load = function()
{
if (typeof JSON == “undefined”)
{
alert(“Include JSON2.js in order to load this collection”);
return;
}
var strJson = localStorage.getItem(‘collection’);
if (strJson == null)
{
return false;
}
var loaded = JSON.parse(strJson);
this.count = loaded.count;
this.collection = loaded.collection;
return true;
}
return true;
}

Then typical usage would be:

<html>
<head>
<script language=”javascript” src=”collection.js”></script>
<script language=”javascript”>
function init()
{
var dt1 = new Date();
var dt2 = new Date(“October 13, 1975 11:13:00”);

var dates=new Collection();
dates.add(dt1);
dates.add(dt2);

var strHtml = “”;
dates.forEach(function(p,key){
strHtml += p + ” (” + key + “)<br>”;
});

var output = document.getElementById(“output”);
output.innerHTML = strHtml;
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload=”init()”>
<div id=”output”></div>
</body>
</html>

Localstorage equivalent in Nokia WRT

May 28, 2012 Leave a comment

An unfortunate missing feature in Nokia WRT (Web Runtime) is HTML5 Localstorage, but fear not, there is an alternative:

To Save values, replace the following Localstorage call to a WRT call:

localStorage.setItem key, value
widget.setPreferenceForKey value, key

And the equivalent “Get” is:
localStorage.getItem key
widget.preferenceForKey key

More information on this can be read on the Nokia website:

ChildBrowser plugin with Cordova 1.7.0

May 5, 2012 Leave a comment

I wanted to use the ChildBrowser plugin with Cordova 1.7.0, so that I could capture url change events when a user navigated from page to page within an iPhone app. It took me about an hour to get working, and I’m not sure if I’d recommend the approach I used, but it here it is, warts and all.

1. Downloaded the ChildBrowser plugin from GitHub, (https://github.com/purplecabbage/phonegap-plugins/tree/master/iPhone/ChildBrowser) – added everything apart from the js file into the Plugins folder.

2. Added the ChildBrowser.js file into the www folder.

3. As per the screenshot below, I added * into the External Hosts, and ChildBrowserCommand into the Plugins dictionary in Cordova.plist

3. 

4. Now it gets hairy – When compiling, it said that CDVPlugin.h was not found, so I hacked this into the ChildBrowserCommand.h file:

#define CORDOVA_FRAMEWORK

#ifdef CORDOVA_FRAMEWORK

#import “CDVPlugin.h”

5. Using code examples online, I could not get ChildBrowser.install() to return anything but null, until I realized that simply including ChildBrowser.js, it was installing itself automatically.

6. Next problem was, that supposedly _onlocationchange(loc) was supposed to fire on new pages, but it wasn’t, so I decided to hack this into onChildLocationChange in ChildBrowserCommand.m

  //NSString* jsCallback = [NSString stringWithFormat:@”ChildBrowser._onLocationChange(‘%@’);”,encUrl];

NSString* jsCallback = [NSString stringWithFormat:@”myLocationChange(‘%@’);”,encUrl];

Then, instead of calling ChildBrowser._onLocationChange, it would call myLocationChange

And the final frankenstein-monstrosity (ugly, but working) in HTML was:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no;” />

<meta charset=”utf-8″>

<script type=”text/javascript” charset=”utf-8″ src=”cordova-1.7.0.js”></script>

<script type=”text/javascript” charset=”utf-8″ src=”ChildBrowser.js”></script>

<script type=”text/javascript”>

function onBodyLoad()

{

document.addEventListener(“deviceready”, onDeviceReady, false);

}

function onDeviceReady()

{

window.plugins.childBrowser.showWebPage(“http://google.com&#8221;);

}

function myLocationChange(loc)

{

alert(“GOT URL:” + loc);

}

</script>

</head>

<body onload=”onBodyLoad()”>

Loading Google…

</body>

</html>

Once again, I’m not recommending this approach, but it worked for me.

Fix: http://ca-no.ru/example/status.php Hack

May 3, 2012 Leave a comment

If your website redirects to http://ca-no.ru/example/status.php when you access it via google, here is the fix:

Delete your .htaccess file, and replace it with this

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine Off
</IfModule>

If you’re curious, this is what’s inserted into the .htaccess file, when the site is infected.

<IfModulemod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngineOn
RewriteCond%{HTTP_REFERER}^.*(google|ask|yahoo|baidu|youtube|wikipedia|qq|excite|altavista|msn|netscape|aol|hotbot|goto|infoseek|mamma|alltheweb|lycos|search|metacrawler|bing|dogpile|facebook|twitter|blog|live|myspace|mail|yandex|rambler|ya|aport|linkedin|flickr|nigma|liveinternet|vkontakte|webalta|filesearch|yell|openstat|metabot|nol9|zoneru|km|gigablast|entireweb|amfibi|dmoz|yippy|search|walhello|webcrawler|jayde|findwhat|teoma|euroseek|wisenut|about|thunderstone|ixquick|terra|lookle|metaeureka|searchspot|slider|topseven|allthesites|libero|clickey|galaxy|brainysearch|pocketflier|verygoodsearch|bellnet|freenet|fireball|flemiro|suchbot|acoon|cyber-content|devaro|fastbot|netzindex|abacho|allesklar|suchnase|schnellsuche|sharelook|sucharchiv|suchbiene|suchmaschine|web-archiv)\.(.*)

Load BAR file onto Playbook

May 2, 2012 2 comments

To load a BAR file onto a playbook, you need to put it into development mode first, which is

  • Access Settings by swiping from the top on the home screen
  • Select Security
  • Select Development mode
  • Select User Development Mode “ON”
  • Set a password (in my case “pass”)
  • Note your IP address from About-> Network -> Wifi -> ipV4

If you don’t do this step, you get the error:

Error: Device is not in the Development Mode. Switch to Development Mode from Se
curity settings on the device.

 

Otherwise you see this:

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for TabletOS 2.2.0.5
\bbwp\blackberry-tablet-sdk\bin>blackberry-deploy.bat -installApp -password pass
-device 192.168.0.100 -package “C:\BBWP\SatNav\Build\SatNav.bar”
