Show Current Time via JavaScript

This Code will show client side current time. 

You just have create a div with a JavaScript function call as shown below.


JavaScript Function:

function js_clock()
    var clock_time = new Date();
    var clock_hours = clock_time.getHours();
    var clock_minutes = clock_time.getMinutes();
    var clock_seconds = clock_time.getSeconds();
    var clock_suffix = "AM";
    if (clock_hours > 11)
        clock_suffix = "PM";
        clock_hours = clock_hours - 12;
    if (clock_hours == 0)
        clock_hours = 12;
    if (clock_hours < 10)
        clock_hours = "0" + clock_hours;
    if (clock_minutes < 10)
        clock_minutes = "0" + clock_minutes;
    if (clock_seconds < 10)
        clock_seconds = "0" + clock_seconds;
    var clock_div = document.getElementById('js_clock');
    clock_div.innerHTML = "<strong>" + clock_hours + ":" + clock_minutes + ":" + clock_seconds + " </strong> " + clock_suffix;setTimeout("js_clock()", 1000);

You can change the time format as your choice. You can see the demo on my blog header.

Call User-defined Function on Linked Server :SQL Server

If you try to invoke a user-defined function (UDF) through a linked server in SQL Server by using a "four-part naming" convention (server.database.dbo.Function), you may receive error message.  The reason is User-defined function calls inside a four-part linked server query are not supported in SQL Server. Thats why error message indicates that the syntax of a Transact-SQL statement is incorrect.  To work around this problem, use the Openquery function instead of the four-part naming convention. For example, instead of the following query Select * from Linked_Server.database.dbo.Function(10) run a query with the Openquery function: Select * from Openquery(Linked_Server,'select database.dbo.Function(10)') If the user-defined function takes variable or scalar parameters, you can use the sp_executesql stored procedure to avoid this behavior.  For example: exec Linked_Server.database.dbo.sp_executesql N'SELECT database.dbo.Function(@input)',N'@input

Installing the FrontPage Server Extensions on IIS 7.0

As most people that have installed IIS 7.0 on Windows Vista and Windows Server© 2008 have realized, there are no options to install the FrontPage Server Extensions, leaving only two ways to edit your Web site if it is hosted on a Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 computer: Edit the Web site locally by using the file system. Use FTP to upload your files to a remote Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 computer. Microsoft realizes that the FrontPage Server Extensions are essential to many Web hosting companies and developers, and has worked with Ready-to-Run Software to release a version of the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions (FPSE 2002) for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. This version of FPSE 2002 is available for x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 as a separate download for IIS 7.0, and you can download this version by clicking the following URL: FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions for IIS 7.0 Notes: The FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions (

Pass multiple complex objects to Web API action

Working with ASP.NET Web API, the most unexpected thing is the limited support of POST data values to simple ApiController methods. When a parameter has [FromBody], Web API uses the Content-Type header to select a formatter. At most one parameter is allowed to read from the message body. The reason for this rule is that the request body might be stored in a non-buffered stream that can only be read once. A simple principle, you can send any content in HTTP request, it only need to be serializable into a string. So, it could be multiple JSON object. In this example, the content type is "application/json" and the request body is a raw JSON string (not a JSON object). Here I found a workaround to pass multiple complex objects (using the above principle) from jquery to a WEB API using JObject , and then cast back to your required specific object type in api controller. This objects provides a concrete type specifically designed for working with JSON. var customer = { &quo
