Gravity Forms Popup Widget updated to version 0.5 – Supports open on button click.

with 16 comments

On the forum I was asked, can my plugin be opened only on pressing a button.

Since it was requested by 2 people I desided to add this functionality so here is an update to version 0.5 of the Gravity Forms Popup Widget Plugin.

Have fun šŸ™‚

Zend Framework – Howto Autoload a model inside your module!

leave a comment »

I have lost about an hour today battling this. I have a normal ZF directory structure:










But for some reasoneĀ  file located in /admin/moduls was not loaded authomaticly.

The problem was in missing Bootstrap.php located in the module root directory. It looks like this extention from Zend_Application_Module_Bootstrap makes the trick.

So all you have to do is to add a class:

class Admin_Bootstrap extends Zend_Application_Module_Bootstrap {}

And it will work!

jQGrid with Zend Framework Updated

with 9 comments

Recently I had some time to update the fork I have of the jQGrid encapsulation for Zend Framework.

Among the things updated is:
* Support for jQGrid 4.1.
* Support for methods in options.
* 2 new decorators
* New special decorator, a multi select element on grid search.
* Support for advanced search

And many more…
You can locate the code at my GitHub:

If you dont use jQGrid it is an Ajax-enabled JavaScript control that provides solutions for representing and manipulating tabular data on the web.

Open2010 – Israel open souce conference – Not really open

leave a comment »

You would think that an Open Source conference would be free, or at a low price.

Well you would be mistaken at least for Israel’s Open 2010 conference.

I looks like the price is 140 USD (500 NIS) per person, which is the highest I have ever seen until now.

It would be interesting to know how many people of the community will attend.

I would not.
