While generally we try to avoid native browser alert() and confirm() we sometimes have no control over their use. I have come across a situation where working in a Native iOS app that a certain call caused a confirm dialog to pop up. This call was triggered from a tap event on a custom button….

Ext JS Model Associations Across Independent API Calls

A few weeks back, Rob Boerman reached out to us with questions about creating linkages between models. As our de facto Associations expert, I talked it through with him.

LESS Tips & Tricks

By now you have probably heard of LESS (or SASS). CSS pre-processors have been around for quite some time now. Even I was slow to adopt a CSS pre-processor solution for my projects, and I can’t quite put my finger on why that is. Perhaps I felt that CSS was simple enough to not need…
