Pulled out the tab 2 and charged it up. Took a few hours. Was not sure if it would start up. But it fired up and updated apps. It is still functional and able to do many things. It’s just slow and really can only do one thing at a time but it has a good screen and speakers for working in the garage or outside. I find that the battery needs charged after a few hours but it can stay plugged in and is fine.
There was an update from google this past week. It hopefully will protect this phone. I was interested how well google would do pushing out it’s updates. But so far it was my 2nd or 3rd update. Keep up the good work!
In the last few weeks I have had an update, dropped my phone, and app update. The battery on the Note 5 that I use has gone fron being full battery to getting to 6:00 before shutting down. I hope it is just a software problem. I really like this phone and want to keep it.
I am using this post to talk about a great blog support system from a good programmer that I found on youtube. He really has some good ideas and he is middle of the road as how it comes to doing things. But most of all he has been around and has been successful. Some are success and some lessons are from mistakes. But you can learn a thing or two from him. Blog Email Course from simple programmer.com. Want to traffic your blog and post learning from an experienced blogger/programmer. If you want to sign up for this course you can link here Blog Course Information.
When in js you are going to put a box for a visitor to fill in something you need the prompt var statement.
When putting in a string you need var name = ‘message’;
and you can use this to combine many string values
var guest = prompt(‘Leave us your name’);
var hello = ‘Hello ‘ + guest;
hello += “Glad to have you here”;
This gives you an output for the visitor that greats them with their name. This is called concatenation putting all of these elements together then writing them out into the page. The hardest part is following others examples. When writing my own code it seems to be easier. But as of know this is easy to understand but I can get turned around fast. So I only spend a few minutes thinking about it. But I really do like it. Even though I feel as if I am learning to walk and running into the coffee table so much my forehead has bruising.
In this unit I used three different methods to code using var statement and strings.
var name = (”);
var name = prompt(”);
All of these are to take in information from the user or show them information. Var is a way to name a variable.
The js console is a helpful tool that is in all browsers that allows the js code to be reviewed and fixed. If you are working with a very long code page then the console will give a link to the area of the broken code.
Chrome it can be called up by ctrl,shift,j
Safari is control j
Mozilla under Dev Controls, Console
Edge download from App Store
Internet Explore No one ever should codes on this *(*&^*&^ browser.
There is a lot going on in this. But after sometime I will probably at least know how to get around in much of the important areas. It reminds me of Xcode. There is just to much going on at first. Most is just different ways to do the same thing. But when you only know one way in and you push a menu to open it. Lost is where you end up.
In every browser there is a js console that helps to find problems in the code. In order to put a js run content into the console to help look for errors the
console.log(“”); is put in to help put notes or start end comments for locating problems that might come up with in coding.
In the html document it is important in the body toward the end to call the js up
And adding alerts by alert(“”); in the js file. I did not realize that these were alerts that I was making at first. I have 6 pop up. But I did not read them. I thought that I was getting attacked. But I read one and saw my own sentence floating in a box. I was like cool, that’s what it does.
The very first thing that I wrote was about making an alert. by alert(“”);
And the second thing was to write to a page document.write(“”); with <h1></h1> html inside the area. Interesting how html is rapped around js. That is probably going to lead me back into css because I left a little early. But I was excited and I can recognize both html and css.
Note: I am going to try and bold commands so they are easier to pick out.
