My first book titled 'Kendo UI Mobile' is here!!

The title says it all. I had posted a couple of entries on Kendo UI earlier and was approached by Packt publishing to write on 'Kendo UI Mobile'. Writing a book was both a personal and a professional goal that I had set for myself. Today I have realized it and I feel accomplished. For almost everyone, first things are very special. Be it their first job, paycheck, girlfriend\boyfriend, marriage, first kid and anything that happens for the first time in their life. This is my baby and I'm going to celebrate my win today.

If you are planning to build a mobile website or an app using Kendo UI Mobile, this book should get you up and running. Here's the link to the page, from where you can learn about the book and buy it - http://www.packtpub.com/kendo-user-interface-mobile/book

  1. Congratulations on getting your book written! I went to the site and looked around, one thing I would have found helpful is being able to look at the table of contents, but the page said there wasn't one available. Maybe you could ask them to stick it up there.


    I am currently using Flex mobile for my applications and will get this book when I am ready to make the switch to HTML5. If you are still using ColdFusion, a blog article about how to pass data back and forth between ColdFusion and a Kendo app would be helpful...but I digress, I really just wanted to say congratulations.

  2. Thanks Mark. I will get in touch with the Packt marketing team and get that fixed. w.r.t. data exchange between Kendo and CF, I would recommend using RESTful services in CF. I have written several posts on the same, please do refer them and let me know if you have any questions.

  3. Just out of curiosity (and I know I shouldn't be so lazy...LMGTFY), is that relegated to ColdFusion 10. My VPS is ColdFusion 9.

  4. This feature i.e. RESTful web services was added in ColdFusion 10.

Custom validation messages for HTML5 Input elements using the constraint validation API

HTML5 has introduced several input types such as EMAIL, URL, RANGE, SEARCH, DATE, TIME, etc,. Most of the modern browsers have implemented them and are ready to be used in a HTML document. Another exciting feature introduced in HTML5 is the form validation. Instead of writing JavaScript to validate users input, browsers can now validate it and show an appropriate message if the validation fails. The validation message is shown in line with the field for which the validation has failed. The default error message is shown when the validation fails. In this post I'll explain how these error messages can be changed.

Adding beforeRender and afterRender functions to a Backbone View

I was working on a Backbone application that updated the DOM when a response was received from the server. In a Backbone View, the initialize method would perform some operations and then call the render method to update the view. This worked fine, however there was scenario where in I wanted to perform some tasks before and after rendering the view. This can be considered as firing an event before and after the function had completed its execution. I found a very simple way to do this with Underscore's wrap method.

A cheat sheet of keyboard shortcuts in ColdFusion Builder

In my last post I have explained about keyboard shortcuts in ColdFusion Builder 2.0. This blog post contains a list of all shortcut keys and I have listed these keyboard shortcuts based on the categories that it falls into. Well, this post was not planned since users can easily get to know the keyboard shortcuts by navigating to the preferences (ColdFusion -> Profiles -> Keys). However, I met Joshua at Scotch on the rocks in Edinburgh and he suggested that it would be nice to have the list of keyboard shortcuts handy. So this post is for those who would like to have the list with them and refer it whenever required.
