- Checking which monitors are active
- Changing or reinitializing a monitor
- Stopping a monitor
- Suspending or resuming a monitor

In this article David Studebaker, we will review the components that make up reports. We'll look in detail at the triggers, properties, and controls that are part of NAV reports. We will study the Report Designer tools that are a combination of pure NAV (the C/SIDE Report Designer) and the Visual Studio Report Designer that is tightly integrated into NAV 2009. We'll create some reports with the Report Designer tools. We'll also modify a report or two using the Report Designer. We'll examine the data flow of a standard report and the concept of reports used for processing only (with no printed or displayed output).Read Report components in NAV 2009: Part 1 in full

In this article, by Kamalakannan Elangovan, the author of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Reporting Cookbook, we will understand and acquire the skills necessary to be good at reporting based on SSRS.
This article will cover the following recipes:
- Creating a matrix report
- Creating a multicolumn matrix report
- Creating a column chart
- Creating a line chart
The legacy reporting system in Dynamics AX had very limited capabilities of how you can render data. Something as simple as adding an image and placing it right was a mammoth task, while things such as graphs and charts were not imaginable. SSRS takes away this pain and makes it easy to represent data in different formats. SSRS reports help create easier and convenient representation of data graphically that is easy for the end user to assimilate. This article will discuss recipes that cover the different kinds of controls other than the table layout discussed so far that can be used to represent data, such as matrix, charts, and gauges. The reader will be familiarized with the different controls and how they can be put to use in reports through this article.Read Reporting Based on SSRS in full
In this article by Ned Riaz, Jason Edwards, and Rich Babaran, we will explain how planning data that has been entered and saved in the Contributor Web Client can be made available for reporting purposes by using the publish process. We then explain the different options that can be used for accessing this data for reporting in real time and through the publish process. After reading this article, you should be able to:
- Make the user-submitted plan data available, by using the Contributor Web Client, for reporting, analytics, and export this data to other databases.
- Understand how to access this data for IBM Cognos BI reporting in real time or through the publish process

Kohana utilizes the HMVC design pattern, and allows us to create requests essentially anywhere within our applications. The request flow is the order in which files are loaded, starting with index.php and moving throughout the framework, loading essential files, processing the requests, and rendering any output.
In this article by Jason D. Straughan, author of Kohana 3.0 Beginner’s Guide, we will learn:
- What HMVC is, and how it works
- Kohana’s Request Flow
- How to use the Request class
This article, by Matthew J. Hamm, the author of the book Wireframing Essentials, covers a brief introduction of research techniques that help us to obtain the information which is required to design applications and offer valuable services to the end users.Read Research Techniques in full
This article created by Francisco Tufr? Developing Mobile Games with Moai SDK discusses the creation of an entity that handles all of our assets in the game. We’ll call itResourceManager. We’ll see how to create one that allows you to add images, fonts, and sounds to your games.
The main idea behind the resource manager is to cache assets that we’ll use more than once and to have a centralized and abstracted way to create assets.Read Resource Manager in full
Resource-Oriented clients are client programs that consume services designed in accordance with the REST architectural principles. The key REST principles include:
- The concept of resource (for example, a document is a resource)
- Every resource given a unique ID (for example, document URL)
- Resources can be related (for example, One document linking to another)
- Use of standard (HTTP, HTML, XML)
- Resources can have multiple forms (for example, status of a document, updated, validated, deleted)
- Communicate in a stateless fashion using HTTP (for example, subsequent requests not related to each other)
In this article by Samisa Abeysinghe, we will study how we can implement clients to consume those services. We will use a real-world example, the simplified library system, to learn from scratch how to design clients with REST principles in mind.Read Resource-Oriented Clients with REST Principles in full
It is a multimedia world. People experience and interact with web content with a variety of media, ranging from large-screen projections of websites to hand-held devices. This presents specific challenges for web designers.
One of those challenges revolves around designing pages that are accessible, inviting, and functional at highly varying sizes. A page with centered content, sidebars on the left and the right, and text flowing around images may be inviting on a laptop, but a jumbled mess on an iPhone.
With the advent of HTML5 and CSS3, it is possible to design pages that detect the size of a viewing device (the viewport), and to present unique page layouts customized for that device. So, for example, you can create three alternative views of a page—one for smart phones, one for tablets, and one for full-sized monitors. The approach is referred to as responsive design. The CSS3 technique for implementing it is a Media Query.
In this article by David Karlins the author of Dreamweaver CS6 Mobile and Web Development with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery Mobile, we'll learn to design pages in Dreamweaver that detect media viewports using Dreamweaver-generated Media Queries, and present appropriate page designs tailored to the visitor's viewing environment.
While doing that, we will:
Use Dreamweaver's Multiscreen Preview window to preview how sites will look in different viewports
Customize Multiscreen Preview for specific devices
Create multiple styles for differently sized viewing devices with Dreamweaver's Media Queries
In this article by Remo Laubacher, the author of Creating concrete5 Themes, we will learn about responsive themes that we can add to our themes and how media queries are an important part of responsive layouts. This article will also help you on how to scale pictures on different types of devices. It also covers areas regarding what it takes to display websites for retina screens.
Before we start adding responsive elements to our theme, let's have a look at the basic techniques we're going to work with. When building a site for a device with a small screen, we have to make sure our elements scale relative to the size of the screen. We might also have to create a different navigation. A wide drop-down navigation would probably not work well on a cell phone.Read Responsive techniques in full
