Wireframe Android app

Wire-framing involves understanding the project and then creating the app flow, using various building blocks.
A wireframe is generally grey scale representation of various screens of the app, describing the functionality and the location of widgets on screen.Wireframes can range from very unfinished and ‘sketchy’ in appearance, to very polished looking and reflective of how the system will look at 100% completion.

Using wire-frames can help determine:

  • The structure of a page or screen.
  • The layout of content.
  • The functionality available.
  • Calls to action.
  • Blocks of text.
  • User interface elements.
  • Graphic design touches.

Wireframing Tools

There are various different products available in the market for this purpose.
Below listed are few of them:

Personally I use Pencil Evolus since its free and is sufficient for my needs.

Below are few of the screens that I created using Pencil wireframing tool.

Fetch large data from column using odbc connection

Recently I went into issue while writing one of my scripts for my android project. Nearly all of my api’s use odbc connection, while going through one of them I found that the api is suddenly returning blank. After spending many hours the issue was with odbc, which was just stopping my script as soon as it reads the row with column with data type ntext that had large data.

I tried enough solutions that I got on google, but none of them fixed the issue, at last the only thing that worked was “type casting my column to varchar at run time.

So now my query looked like:

“select c.col1, c.col2, convert(varchar(5000),c.col3) as col3 from myTable …. “

Well this is not an exact solution, and may have drawbacks, but it solved my issue to some extent.

Hope this will help some one.
