PayPal and its account optional setting

I had played with PayPal’s integration in a few online stores but never got to this stupid situation. For those that are not aware, the ‘Account Optional Setting’ allows the customers of an online store to pay directly, supplying the credit/debit/prepaid card information. This is really really awesome feature, because creating PayPal account is actually not enough to make a payment. Customers must verify their cards through PayPal which is done by moving through some steps including: Read more

Prado and its page state

I had some hard time tracking a bug of mine. The website is powered with the Prado framework latest version. It happened that the bug was a little tricky to be found. I have extended the TPage class and using it as MTPage. There I had a function used by a TDropDownList which is AutoPostBack enabled on changing the selected index – on the function executes $this->Response->reload(). The actual TDropDownList is in the MainLayOut.tpl file because it should be present on each page. But I have forgotten to use the following syntax:

Summer vacation ends

I was on a holiday these days, so I haven’t written anything for some time. I was at Sunny beach for a week, had a great time and relax to the limits. Now back to work :(

I want to share something that came to my mind two days ago. I saw taxi car – station wagon, and from the car got out 6 people excluding the driver! It is really funny to see two fat english or swedish girls getting out from the trunk. I remember the time when I was in Portsmouth for 3 months – they had taxi cars 5 and 6 seated, some of them really cool looking with colored lights inside and good music. Really nice idea and I am wondering is there such a taxi company in Bulgaria- I think no! This is really cool – Have you ever come up with 5 or 6 people looking for a taxi and wondering how to split ? :)

Spam bots breaking through reCaptcha plugin

Ok once I had problems with spam bots commenting my posts with ads and links but I installed the reCaptcha plugin for wordpress and forgot about it. However these days I have problems again. This is one particular IP that is able to break through the validation! The IP is and I really would suggest to you to add it to your ban list. I will do it for sure! Today I had like 50 comments on a post, all got in approved !

CodeIgniter and IntelliSense in Eclipse PDT

For those that are not aware, IntelliSense is a feature of the Eclipse IDE, which allows us to quickly inspect the properties of an instantiated object of some type, function parameters, auto-completion, short description, if available and so on. This is incredibly handy when developing applications, no matter the programming language. When developing with CodeIgniter, due to the style the framework is written, the IntelliSense is not working.

Prado and loading modules at runtime

Today I had big problems trying to load modules in Prado from the TPage, not using the application.xml. I had such a requirement for the globalization utility in our web application. So after hours of pain finaly I found the magic lines of code that allow this to happen. I am surprised that there was no entry in the documentation or in the forums :( .

Here is the code:
