    some recommendations on a decent local web design + ecommerce shop? it's for pet project / side business that a relative would like to work on.

    Playing with bootstrap 4 alpha at the moment. It's quite nice.

    A lot less noise than BS3, and seems easier to re-style without having to override 100's of rules for a single control.

    Am in the middle of creating "sister" sites for my two projects, added a place holder for one (http://remixr.io/) whilst I finish the update of audioswit.ch

    Will be including a webapi to query downloads, and new versions. Then I can finally discontinue my old soap web service. YAY

    Yeah I've had a tinker with BS4 too. It's a big improvement over BS3 and aligns to how I work already so it might find a place in prototyping or something.

    Still prefer using Susy + our own internal framework/workflow though.

    We're typically the people who work in them shops, not the people paying them money. How much money does your relative have? That would largely determine what part of the market you can shop in.

    that's sort of the main reason for me posting directly here! i can't think of who better to ask than those that actually do it as a day job.

    budget is tentatively <$5,000, though i'm not sure what kind of quality or quantity of work that fetches, so any pointers on that figure would be helpful.

    i realise my question is perhaps too open ended (and probably not well received based on the number of responses), so putting budgets and requirements to the side, what are some good, local, dedicated web design + ecommerce shops?

    For reference: $5000, one might , on a really good day, be able to hire one of this threads regulars, full time, for a week. That week would get you some cool shit. Cool shit you probably don't need just yet.

    The best option might be to look at simple hosted solution, see if the business has traction, then invest more at a later date.

    Something along the lines of: https://www.shopify.co.nz. Now I preface this with: I've never used shopify, or know of anyone who has.

    A hosted "out of the box" solution, is going to be a hell of a lot cheaper, and is a good way to explore opportunity.

    Shopify is great if you just want to start selling.

    Git (or at least that some other common form of version control) should be a compulsory part of any first year programming course TBQH.

    Any log of a client deleting things then sending an angry email about content missing is always a good time.

    Anyone know how to update a data grid from another window? (Using WPF)

    Ignore the bad code . But, for example

    Code:
    <DataGrid x:Name="RemindersCollection" AutoGenerateColumns="True" ItemsSource="{Binding}" Margin="10,37,10,10" AutoGeneratingColumn="RemindersCollection_AutoGeneratingColumn" ColumnWidth="*" MinColumnWidth="200" CanUserAddRows="false" CanUserDeleteRows="False" IsReadOnly="True"/>
    Code:
    public ObservableCollection<ReminderClass> MainReminders = new ObservableCollection<ReminderClass>();
    From the main window, it will update the data grid instantly.

    Code:
                var string1 = "test";
                var string2 = "test";
                var string3 = "test";
                var string4 = "test";
    
                MainReminders.Add(new ReminderClass
                {
                    ReminderTitle = string1,
                    EventType = string2,
                    ReminderDate = string3,
                    ReminderTime = string4
                });
    However, The following doesn't.

    Code:
               _mainWindow.MainReminders.Add(new ReminderClass
                {
                    Unique = _unique,
                    ReminderTitle = reminderTitle,
                    EventType = eventType,
                    ReminderDate = reminderDate.Date.ToShortDateString(),
                    ReminderTime = reminderTime.ToShortTimeString()
                });

    EEEESH, I won't even start on the reasons not to do it that way.

    WPF doesn't particularly like binding to fields. Make the MainReminders field a Property instead. Then it should wire the collections events correctly.

    Code:
    private readonly ObservableCollection<ReminderClass> _mainReminders = new ObservableCollection<ReminderClass>();
    
    public ObservableCollection<ReminderClass> MainReminders
    {
        get
        {
            return _mainReminders;
        }
    }

    If you have VS2015, the same but shorter:

    Code:
    public ObservableCollection<ReminderClass> MainReminders { get; } = new ObservableCollection<ReminderClass>();
    Also make sure you are adding the new value to the collection on the UI thread.

    Tim van Ameringen has spent more than 40,000 hours developing 4tradeit.co.nz, a new low-cost auction and classified website, from his Dairy Flat man cave in North Auckland.
    40,000 hours? For this? http://www.4tradeit.co.nz/

    U wot?

  17. Post
    In all fairness, most of those hours were probably logged waiting for it to load.

    Was hoping Sublime Text 3 had some form of code folding closer to collapsible regions such as

    Code:
    #region MyCodeBlock
    <code>
    #endregion
    I can select a bunch and 'fold' it but once unfolded it's gone.

    Anyone know? I'm sure there are plugins but want to make sure there's nothing I've missed first. My python scripts are getting pretty annoying to manage and I'm not at the point that I want to split them into different modules, it'd be a bit overkill just for managing something simple like this.

    What the hell, it even looks like a WORSE version of trademe. Why would he use trademe as an example to begin with, at least copy paste Ebay or something.

    And his URL is terrible for a site like this.

    He should of spent 40,000 hours learning design aesthetics instead.
