Interactive Thumbnail Based Photo Gallery in a Grid Layout

Posted · Category: Reviews

GridNavigation is another great flash component for web developers. It is a thumbnail based navigational system or a portfolio / photo gallery in a grid or pyramid like layout. You can customize the layout postion to top left, top right, bottom left or bottom right. The number of columns and rows can be set easily as well.


As you can see, GridNavigation consists of many thumbnails, they can be external images, animated SWFs or movie clips which can be defined or added through an external XML file, Component Inspector or ActionScript. The thumbnail content is clickable and zooms in to display the selected full size content while other thumbnails are pushed aside. You can even able to change the zooming and easing speed.


It is really a good way of showing your menu items, photos or images, because nowadays users are expecting more and more interactions with the website. Their experience of browsing your website can be very enjoyable and increase their chance of coming back. GridNavigation is very easy to implement like other flash components. It is currently available for ActionScript 2.0 and 3.0 at the price of $44.95 – $54.95. You can view the demo of the GridNavigation here.

Free Javascript Time Picker with Mootools

Posted · Category: Reviews

Do you remember last time I have reviewed NoGary’s Free Highly Customizable Javascript Calendar. This time he has created a flexible and useful time picker for us.

time-picker.png First of all, I think the clock looks quite nice. If you do not like the current style of the clock and would like a unique look and feel for your clock, you can create a custom look for the clock yourself. You can customize the look and feel of the clock by changing the images or creating new images using the PhotoShop files included in the resource directory.

The time picker utilizes a very easy drag and drop user interface. Users can drag the minute or hour hands independently to modify the time. You do not need to click on the hands exactly, you just need to select the area nearby, and it will automatically select the nearest hand for you. So that, users can select the hands easily even if the clock is very small. There are some other configuration options you can set when initiating the time picker by passing an options object, e.g. 12/24 hours format, starting time, clock’s size, etc…

The time picker is really easy to use and implement. I think this is really handy when building a web application. Sometimes, we really need a time picker so that we can select the exact time of the exact date for an event. This time picker comes in really useful when works in parallel with the date picker. After all, this is Free, you can download it whenever you would like to use it, but remember that Mootools Framework is needed when using the time picker.

Performance and Stress Testing for Web Application

Posted · Category: Reviews, Tools


Developing a fully functional and useful web application is tedious, testing the web application is more tedious. We have to make sure the web application is working well without any bugs. We have to make sure the web application is still running smooth when hundreds or thousands of people are using it at the same time. It is difficult to perform these testings without the aid of a testing software.

This paid review from ReviewMe is exactly what we need. Wapt is a load and stress testing tool that provides you with an easy-to-use, consistent and cost-effective way of testing web sites, web servers, and intranet applications with web interfaces.

Simulate Real User Activities
wapt1.pngYou can simulate real user activities by creating many different users who are coming from different IP addresses, each with their own parameters: cookies, input data for various page forms, name and password, connection speed and their own specific path through the site. You can even simulate random time between user clicks to make each virtual user as similar as possible to a human user. So that you know exactly how the server and web application react if users are using your web application.

Thousands of Users in One Test
If you want to simulate thousands of users, you do not need to specify separate behavior for each of them. You specify behavior for each type of users and use as many virtual users of each type as you need. It makes you really easy to test the web application with thousands of users easily.

There are other useful features for example, you can perform testing on dynamic web applications, test the HTTP requests that include parameters that are specific for each user. WAPT also supports testing of web sites and applications secured by SSL. You do not need to perform any additional actions for the testing.

Descriptive Test Reports and Graphs
wapt2.pngAnd finally, WAPT displays test results through descriptive reports and graphs. They are available even during the test, so you can monitor key parameters of web application performance on the fly and see how your site responds to the increasing load volume. You can also save test results in MS Excel compatible format which is really handy.

30-day Trail Version
WAPT is designed for Microsoft Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP. It costs $350 for 1 unit, you can get cheaper price if you order more than 2 units. I suggest you download 30-day trial version first. Once you are think the product is right for you, you can buy it afterwards. I personally found it very useful, you will really need it if you are going to build a web application for large amount of users.
