GWT: gTraffic Timeline

I occasionally have a look at my GWT traffic mashup to make sure it’s still working. I was looking at it again tonight and was struck by how many good ideas it seems to have. Good ideas that no one else seems to have bothered to pick up on. As an example take a look […]

Blog: Opera

I am looking at this blog in Opera 9.25 and I have to say it looks miles better that Firefox or IE8. The screenshots are way sharper and it’s actually rendering the bullet points which Firefox seems to have stopped doing. My spelling is no beter though. I like Opera but it doesn’t render Google […]

Simile Timeline : Update

Well it’s been a while but I have finally got around to making an update to the gwt simile timeline. I had a request back in Dec last year (06) to add in the ability to load XML directly from a text string instead of having to use the AJAX loading mechanism. I thought it […]

Project Updates #1

After getting gwt-jsviz out the door I feel it’s time to take stock of my current list of on-going projects. gwt-jsviz The gwt-jsvix API wrapper was something that I had been putting some time into on and off for quite a while so I am glad to have the first revision up and running. Already […]

gwt-yui-ext

gwt-yui-ext is my (partial) wrapper around (some) of the yui-ext components. The yui-ext library is built upon the YUI library by Yahoo which is a javascript library of routines for page layout and animation (among other things). Jack Slocum has taken this and developed an amazing set of controls including a layout with sliding panels […]

GWT:Simile Timeline HOWTO

If you look up to the right under the ‘pages’ section you will find a link to a HOWTO page for the GWT Timeline which details all the information you should need to get up and running with the GWT Simile Timeline widget. Any feedback on this is welcome. I think I have covered (almost) […]

gwt-yui-ext

I have been working on a GWT Wrapper API for Jack Slocum’s javascript GUI component library yui-ext. In Jack own words this is a ‘library of reusable JavaScript widgets and classes that extend the Yahoo! UI Library’. Sidu Ponnappa has an example of yui integration here but his drag and drop example doesn’t look like […]

Roadworks and VMS

My web stats indicate not many people actually look at the VMS signs data layer which is probably just as well as there is an issue with the XML feed. The roadworks is not up to date either but this is less of an issue as they are mostly long running types of events which […]

gTraffic.info v2.1 Online

I have finally integrated the GWT Simile timeline into the gTraffic.info site. Clicking on a traffic region will cause the timeline tab to appear. The items on the tab are hooked into the map markers so that clicking on the severity icon from the timeline bubble will flip to the map tab and highlight the […]

GWT Timeline 1.1

I have fixed the issue with the timeline not drawing into the contained DIV. It turns out you have to set the view width of the DIV _before_ you attempt to create it. The example app source has been updated but the live version has not been updated as yet. There is an existing issue […]
