WL : Weblogic Workshop textbox sizes

Weblogic Workshop 8.1 SP2 running on XP SP2.

The following HTML code snippet:

LB input size="14" value="input" RB
LB input type="password" size="14" value="" RB

where LB = "<" and RB = ">".

When viewed in either the standard IE browser or the Workshop test browser, the password textbox is smaller than the normal textbox even though both are the same size.

The same is also true when viewed by Weblogic using the LB netui:textBox .... construct.

The solution is to make the password field use a monospace font i.e.

LB input type="password" value="" style="font-family: courier new;font-size:14;" RB

Have a read of the introduction in PDF format.


SQL : Comparing dates with SQL server

The date is actually stored as "date & time".

So a search:

WHERE Table_Date > GETDATE()

will not find any articles with a Table_Date of today - because the GETDATE() time now is > the time the record was inserted into the table.

To do the compare properly, only the date portions must be compared i.e.

WHERE (CONVERT(varchar(10), Table_Date, 112) >= CONVERT(varchar(10), GETDATE(), 112))

112 is the ISO standard style to ensure the correct compare results.
