Web Portal Notes!

I have now added the ability to view, create, modify and delete notes from the web portal. I’m using an HTML editor called “TinyMCE”, which works well and integrated fairly easily. It can’t embed pictures or media but It’s nice to have basic formatting, lists printing, etc. Because it saves as HTML code (which is good for compatibility), Kootnet Control Center’s note section does not support it, so viewing in Control Center will show HTML code instead of an HTML page. I’m not completely done the Notes section yet, as I still have to add the custom Date & Time stamp the user can edit to show wherein the database the note is referring to and I wanted to get the spell checker working.

On a personal note, the wife has left the province for work and has stints of 3 to 5 weeks at a time away from home before coming back for 1 or 2 weeks. So I have a little less time for programming projects.

The weather has been mostly cloudy grey and the temperature is kinda random from like +7c to -11c with wind, rain, snow, hail, etc. I’m looking forward to warmer and sunnier weather.

Back to my day job for now. I have a few work projects on the go too, like finishing an Exchange migration to Exchange 2019, replace some failed drives in a server and get an IP camera system working from outside the local network but through the VPN for security.
