Ask Deft Flux: How do I format money using knockout.js

We have recently benefited from using knockout.js to add richness to some of our web application forms.  Once our view model is bound, the library allows us to update text on the form dynamically and easily.  Naturally, it wasn’t long before someone asked, “How do I format money using knockout.js?”  Some folks had some partial answers and some folks had some answers that didn’t work.  It was particularly challenging to deal with users selecting partial fields, negative amounts, and what not, so we rolled our own knockout extension.  We wouldn’t say our answer is perfect, but we think it is a fair compromise that works with the major browsers.  Behold, the jsFiddle for money formatting in knockout.

Cogburn Crows is launched!

We have great news folks.  Cogburnt, our first game, has been launched.  This is new territory for the Deft Flux stable of information designers, but we think this product is going to be a hit.  We know that many parents and families feel on-line and mobile games driving them apart.  They no longer are sitting around a table playing games together.  In response, we have attempted to provide a game that requires the players to sit together in the same room and (at least for now) on the same device.  So head over to the App Store or Google Play, install Cogburnt, and let us know what you think!

Cogburn Crows is coming

Coming soon from Deft Flux – something unlike anything we’ve created to date.  It’s called Cogburnt.  It might be a little too soon for you, but your kids are going to love it.

Leaders – Get Ready for Seth Godin!

Leaders, why do you work to stand out from the crowd?  Why do you care about doing the right thing in the right way?  You know that your actions, attitudes, and encouragement help those around you succeed.  You also know that from time to time, you need that same encouragement from other leaders whose attitude is the same as yours.

We believe the best one-day event in Oshkosh where you can find that encouragement is that Leadercast 2015.  This year, we get to hear from Payton Manning and Rudy Giuliani, and we are particularly excited to hear from Seth Godin, whose thoughts on marketing are sure to be pithy and refreshing.

Leadercast is a one-day event broadcast live from Atlanta to over 100,000 leaders around the globe, sponsored at Oshkosh by Deft Flux.  Find a way to get there.  Get your tickets now.

Ask Deft Flux: How Do I Export an Epicor Report Data Definition?

In the world of Epicor, most customer modifications (Dashboards, BAQs, Customizations, etc.) can be individually exported to a file and thus imported one at a time.  This is a convenient way to make a quick modification and move it from Pilot or Test up to Live.  Not all modifications are created equal, however.  A Dashboard cannot be imported to update an existing Dashboard with the same name.  The dashboard must be renamed.  Report Data Definitions cannot be directly exported at all.

“So,” you ask, “How can I export a Report Data Definition?”  Continue reading

Leaders – Get Ready for Simon Sinek!

Leaders, why should you build your leadership muscles?  You care about your work.  You care about your team.  You long for your team to win.  We believe that Leadercast 2014 is one of the best one-day workouts your leadership muscles can get.

In anticipation, we have watched the Leadercast folks spend the better part of this month trickling out speaker announcements for 2014.  We are especially excited about Simon Sinek and Laura Bush.  If you haven’t heard Simon speak yet, he is the author of Start with Why, and you can do a few leadership pushups today by watching this TED talk — How great leaders inspire action.

Leadercast is a one-day event broadcast live from Atlanta to over 100,000 leaders around the globe, sponsored at Oshkosh by Deft Flux.  Find a way to get there.
