  • Backups and discussions with folks on site. Working on getting a meeting set up with the Morpheus folks.
  • fgmdev.com was down. Dong and I spent most of the morning trying to get it up. That you are reading this means success!
  • Working on adding color code. Incorporated and working nicely!
  • Checking code in
  • Burning a disk

  • Still wet, but no wind to speak of. Cold – in the 30’s. We apparently got 80 mph gusts and I’d believe it.
  • Updated the WP engine for this blog.
  • Looking at some papers about User Interface/ Experience to see how the Alert Manager App should be built.

12:00 – 2:00 FP

  • Reading “Facilitators and Barriers to Adopting Robotic-Assisted Surgery:  Contextualizing the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology”. I want to find a rule for User Interface adoption

  • working at home
  • continue working on SQLEditor for VSS
    • added method to run SQL string to server – SQLResult runSQLStrings(String databaseName, String sqlList)
    • added SQLResult.java to javaUtils – pom.xml is set to generate version 1.1, others are not using it?????
      • changed scriptingEngine and VisibilityScriptingServer to use 1.1
    • added methods to save and get list of SQLs

  • So begins a very wet day.
  • Working on figuring out why coloring chart lines is so different from all the other charts. Going to try building a toy project with just one line chart in it and (maybe?) an item renderer.
  • Well that turned out to be easier than I thought.
	private function init():void{
		var hsb:HsbObject = new HsbObject(0x0000AA);
		var lsa:Array = new Array();
		lsa.push(createLineSeries("Profit", "Profit", hsb));
		hsb.rotateHue(40);
		lsa.push(createLineSeries("Expenses", "Expenses", hsb));
		hsb.rotateHue(40);
		lsa.push(createLineSeries("Amount", "Amount", hsb));

		_linechart.series = lsa;
	}

	private function createLineSeries(yf:String, dn:String, hsb:HsbObject):LineSeries{
		var scs:SolidColorStroke = new SolidColorStroke(hsb.getHexColor());
		scs.weight = 3;
		var ls:LineSeries = new LineSeries();
		ls.yField = yf;
		ls.displayName = dn;
		ls.setStyle("lineStroke", scs);
		return ls;
	}

The project files are here. There are two projects. The EdgeUtils project contains the HsbObject class.

  • added dbStoredQuery(String queryName) to ScriptFacades class
    • can run set of queries and return the last result in DbTable format
  • working on dbStoredProc – runs stored procedure in the database via VSS
  • working on QueryEditor in VSS

  • Put in the paperwork for an URN
  • Pinged the Morpheus folks to see how we can integrate
  • Working on tracking down bugs and coloring lines
  • Discussed how to add SQL stored(?) procedures to VSS with Dong.
    • Need an editor to create and name scripts
    • Need some kind of macro substitution
    • Some of this is available in the dbObjects in JavaUtils and FGMUtils, using the classes that I wrote to create databases that map to Flex objects.
  • Fixed the bug that was crashing the column rendering in WidgetBase by adding a try/catch block and resetting the array of visibile columns. Not pretty, but it works.
  • Still trying to figure out how to change the color of a line. This seems to be the way: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flex/using/WS2db454920e96a9e51e63e3d11c0bf69084-7c52.html

  • Working on getting auto colors to work properly in trend widget.
  • 10:00 Meeting to talk to GAO folks. I think that went well. There will be a followup meeting.
  • Continued to beat on getting autopallete working for TrendWidget. After stepping through the ThresholdColumnRederer and figuring that out, I wound up with the same wrong coloring that I was getting when I ran the fill function from within the TrendWidget. The problem was that the ChartItem index was referring to each *cluster* of columns, not the columns within the cluster. As a hack to get around this, I put an Array in TrendWidget that counts the yFields that are passed to the field function. The *index* of the yFields is then used as the hue angle. Anyway, here’s the code:
protected function setColumnSeriesColor(element:ChartItem, index:Number):IFill {
	var yFieldName:String = "_unset_";
	var o:Object = element.element;

	// check if the yFieldName is in an array. if it is, then get the index. if not, add and get the index.
	if(o.hasOwnProperty("yField")){
		yFieldName = o.yField;
		if(_yfieldNameArray.lastIndexOf(yFieldName) == -1){
			_yfieldNameArray.push(yFieldName);
		}
		index = _yfieldNameArray.lastIndexOf(yFieldName);
	}
	return ColorUtil.setSeriesColor(element, index);
}
  • Next is getting the line charts to work with the color scheme.
  • Oh yeah, and add dataTip formatting to pie charts in QueryWidgetBase.

  • Backups and housecleaning
  • Installed new vis2.swf. Not happy yet with the colors, but the commas work.
  • Talked to Lenny about FACTS
  • Got some heads up on tomorrow’s meeting.
  • Working with colors. I’m going to increment a fixed amount off of the border color – see how that works. Well – I think:
  • Well, that seems to work nicely:

  • Backups
  • Updated the index.html page to mention that we are production!
  • Made a printout of the xml that describes the FlexiChart that we’re using, and I think I figured out what the issue with the tooltips is. The yField does not exist as a row in the table. I need to get what the label and the mapping is for each row (series?) from the flexiChart.

9:45 – 12:15 FP

  • How users make applications fit their needs. Or, how users misuse Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint.

12:15 – 4:00 – ESSO

  • Digging into FlexiChart to see if I can get the series information and use it in the dataTip function. Done and working.
