Project BigResource

Since 2005, our team is working 24/7/365 to maintain one of the World's largest resource center for webmasters and programmers. The project comprises a directory of 50,000 Scripts & Tutorials relating a wide range of programming languages from PHP, .NET, ASP and Java to emerging Android & iOS development.

We also maintain an index of over 3 million questions/answers posted over internet relating aforementioned technologies. To learn more about Tracker, click here.

It took us 10 years of hard work to build an index of 3 million plus qualified Q&As by humans, not the bots. Just Crawling and building a database of messages is not an art. The success of this unique project lies in the human editing of these messages by professionals for content validity and definitive solution to various problems to stay focused on the issue & saving time. Compare and see the difference between an original post on a forum and the same edited message added to our index here. No unanswered posts, salutations, lengthy code lines, images, avatars, attachments, closing remarks, reference URLs, signatures etc., just the core issues and solutions to them.

As of June 2014 stats, 50,000 unique visitors/webmasters visit us every day to get benefited from this index. We are working hard and striving harder to provide programmers an unmatchable resource index to their unanswered questions.

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Get Epic To Send "normal" Signal To Other Apps?
Got the Samsung Desk Dock for easy re-charging and using phone on nightstand. If I use the Samsung Desk Home app from the market, that app automatically detects that the phone is in the dock and runs the app. However, no other app is able to detect that the phone is docked, even with the Desk/Home app uninstalled (i.e. not the default). My understanding is that the phone should send a signal to Android if the device is being docked. Then Android sends a broadcast to all apps that the device has been docked. I have tested with two different apps which are designed to run upon the phone being docked and neither detects the phone being docked. Without the Samsung dock app loaded, there is no change when the phone is docked. It seems like only the Samsung app is capable of detecting docking. Am I missing something? How can I get the Epic to send out the "normal" signal to other apps upon being docked? ...

The Fusion is recognized as an external drive when I attach it to my PC and I can backup or copy new sounds, etc, to the keyboard. . . so, what do I need to do to get an external drive to be recognized from my phone so that I might download info with my phone and then load it onto my keyboard, which is pretty much and external drive. . . which could be ultra cool.

Add Pagination To Results Which Query FULL-TEXT Indexed Table
I am trying to add pagination to my results which query a FULL-TEXT indexed table. Here is the query:

Normal Query

SELECT *,MATCH(title) AGAINST ("+samsung +galaxy +s3" IN BOOLEAN MODE)
as score FROM `deals` WHERE `image`!='' AND category=15032 ORDER BY score DESC;

It returns 183 rows.Trying to do pagination

("+samsung +galaxy +s3" IN BOOLEAN MODE) as score FROM `deals`
WHERE `image`!='' AND category=15032 ORDER BY score DESC LIMIT 8;

Creating Data Dump With Where Clause
I was just wondering whether it was possible to create a data dump containing all data from tables 1 and table2 as well as selected data from table3 i.e apply a where clause to just table3 all in the same statement namely:

Trigger To Modify Table Permissions
I am trying to create a trigger on table a that updates the permissions on table b based on a boolean value inside of table a. Is this possible? I have been running into all kinds of trouble trying to get this done.

Here is my trigger:

CREATE TRIGGER TRIG_autoconfenabled
AFTER UPDATE ON management
BEGIN IF management.autoconfenabled = 1 THEN

I should also note that if I drop the trigger, I can re-run the update without error. The trigger is causing the error in the update statement; though, I don't know why. ...

Combining Multiple Tables To Query For Search Results?
I've worked up a little search function on one of our sites that queries our MySQL database. I'll explain more of what I'm looking to do in a moment, but first, here's the

$keywords= explode(" ",$keywords);
$search_q = ''; 
foreach($keywords as $word){ 
   $search_q .= "specialty_displayname  LIKE '%" . $word . "%' &&";

$search_q = substr($search_q, 0, -2); //strip off the last || 


So this works great, does what we're looking to do. However, I actually want the search function to search across two tables, with unrelated column headers and data. Currently I'm accomplishing this by having a second query and process after the first one shown above, just with the values adjusted to reflect the information in the other table. I know this can be done more efficiently. Enter UNION ALL. I found this solution that seems to work well for ONE keyword:

FROM specialty_list


This combines the tables so that I can query a single result set. However, I don't know how to do this on multiple word values (shown in the original code above). Can I add a LIKE statement to a UNION? ...

Vertical Scrolling Setting Resets To 1 Randomly Laptop
Every 20 or so minutes I have to keep going into my mouse settings to change the Verticle Scroll speed back up to 4, up from the default 1. This problem has been occurring since I got this laptop in november last year, and I've been up for 2 and a half hours trying to finally fix this tedious problem, I'm starting to lose hope and it's getting to the point where it makes me not want to even get on the computer. My Dell Touchpad program that came with the computer is always turned off when the mouse is plugged in, so that can't be why.

There are two ways for me to change the scroll speed, by going into the Windows 8 PC Settings>PC & Devices>Mouse & Touchpad, and the mouse properties that are in the control panel. When I change the Mouse & Touchpad settings they change the settings in the mouse properties but not vice-versa.

There is no KH-whatever file in my startup list.

Synaptics drivers for touchpad are up to date, as is the mouse driver.

My mouse is a Engage Optical Mouse, I've had it for about 2 years and I never had a problem with it on my last computer. My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron M531R-5535. ...

Hardware Drivers :: Space Key Sets Randomly Spaces When Texting
I am working at a desktop pc with Win 8.1 installed. When typing, spaces appear randomly (also in the middle of a word - it is not as if the space key had got stuck). Nevertheless I got a new keyboard but the same problem occurs. I removed the keyboard driver - did not work. The keyboard is not wireless, plain USB. Seems though, as if the fault appears only in programs of the MS office suite. ...


Cisco WAN :: 887V VDSL Router / Pinging From The VLAN1?

Sony Vaio Laptop / Slow Internet Speed On Wifi?

Cisco VPN :: ASA 5510 - Android Connection No Longer Working
I have a Cisco ASA 5510 (with an AnyConnect Mobile License enabled) I used to be able to connect to the VPN using the AnyConnect app for Android form the Google App store (the phone is a Samsung Galaxy S II LTE, if that matters). Like I said everything used to work fine until a few weeks ago, the only change I made to the router was giving it a different external IP address (I changed ISP), I'm pretty sure it worked after that. But now when I try to connect with my Android I get this error: "Clientless (browser) SSL VPN access is not allowed". ...

Macro - If Cell In Column Is Blank Then Input Text Into Same Row In Another Column
I am looking for a Macro that will search a column for blank cells, and when one is found will add text to the same row in another column. For example: The below is a spreadsheet. I am trying to find something that will search through column "C" in this case and add text (of my choice) to Column "A" if the cell is Blank. So Since cell C1 is Blank then Type "ERROR" is cell A1.

Found Value In Quotes Not Matching Cell Value Without Quotes - VBA Excel
Attempting to match acct #s on source sheet with account numbers on Template but the numbers on the source are = to the cell value while the numbers on the template are equal to finding the source cell value in the template. Let me explain with code.

Set Source value:

Set FirstIO = zfir.Range("e8")
Set Template value:

Set CheckIO = Range("Accounts").Find(IO, LookIn:=xlValues)
When I get here:

If FirstIO = CheckIO.Value Then
I get a mismatch because
FirstIO = 3333333 and CheckIO = "3333333"

How do I make these 2 values Match? ...

Org Chart With Excel
Hello Excel Guru's. I have more of a question or seeking advise on a task I have at hand. I have one of two files to work with. One file has about 20 columns of data, about 1300 rows. The file is employee data, namely: The employee ID, Employee Name, the employee's supervisor ID and the employee's supervisors name (columns A, B, C and D). What I'm after a heirarchy of sorts. I've used visio to create an Org Chart but once the data has changed (supervisor is terminated or changes departments) you have to re-run the org chart and that can be time consuming.

I was hoping that someone out there might have done something with VBA or a pivot that can display the sheet in complete heirarchy format.

I do have a second file that contains the same employee list, but this one has supervisors listed in a more of a level. Level 1 would be the CEO, supervisors listed in level 2 would be the employees reporting to level 1. Employees listed under Level 3 report upto the supervisor in level 2, and so on. I have 6 levels. Level 6 is all employees that have no direct reports.

Again a pivot table is a nice start but what I have is many of the supervisors are found in both level 5 and level 4....and the CEO is in all levels. ...

Macro With Delete Row - No Longer Runs
This macro ran fine until I started using Offset on ranges to have them extend. The macro replaces "L" with blanks but does not go on to delete the rows. The name "Type" refers to =Offset(Mem05!$A$2,0,0, CountA(Mem05!$A$2:$A$270),10)

Relevant part of Macro
Application.Goto Reference:="Type"
Selection.Replace What:="L", Replacement:="", LookAt:=xlWhole, _
SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=True, SearchFormat:=False, _
On Error Resume Next


Is it using Offset that could be causing this error? ...

Finding And Calculating Highest Trending Item By Daily Sales?
I have a very large spreadsheet with daily sales for over 140 different items, over the past 2 years.

This is how my data looks like:

ITEM NAME 4/1/12 4/2/12 4/3/12 etc
item1 10 15 500
item2 5 0 3
item3 0 0 5

I'm trying to build a formula that allows me to see which item is the highest trending over a period of time I input.

I figured out the way how to select data between specific Start and End dates, but don't know how to interpret "trending" in a formula.

I was thinking maybe highest jump from beginning to end of interval, but what if it's a new item that was launched halfway through the interval and does poorly throughout, that would still be "trending" under that rationale.... ...
