Q: How to place UILabel next to last character of UITextField?

Niccolò ZapponiI am trying to achieve the same effect as Facebook's new status field: place something next to the last character which cannot be modified or selected by the user (for example, a tag: "with Joh Doe"). What's the best way of achieving it? Thanks Nick

I didn't downvote, but this is the sort of beginner-level fundamental question that you should be able to figure out from any Java tutorial. Everybody on here is a volunteer, and you are expected to do basic research and NOT ask questions that can be easily answered 1000 other places on the Internet. Please read the FAQ and How to Ask.

By "interesting," I guess I meant useless.
 
@AstroCB Sorry, I missed the joke
 
@SantaClaus It wasn't really a joke, actually: it was just meant to be a half comical/half pitying repost of the comment, but it didn't embed because I @repied you (which I only did because it was from the post that you linked to).
 
@AstroCB Oh ok :)
 
Oh, and @SantaClaus: you missed that we've been using this query to find bad questions to close (I flagged most of them, but they're still in need of a few close votes).

A: Why let me flag a post if you're not going to let me flag it?

doppelgreenerYour suggestion is good, but there's alternative to this that's more in line with SE's design philosophy: leave the flag option enabled, but make it immediately display that red box. I think there's a Coding Horror blog post espousing Stack Exchange's philosophy (I can't find it right now though...

Anyone know if the Sony Xperia Z tablet is any good?
It's been on my wish list for a long time but I don't remember what about it made me want it so bad. Haha
 
that site mostly have genuine reviews
 
Looks like most of them are for the phone though.
Damn Sony, naming a phone and a tablet the same thing...
There's a lot of really good reviews for it on Amazon
 
I think it has quad core processor, but these days octa core and hexa core are releasing.
You should really try one of those
 
While reviewing suggested edits, I noticed many users are trying to change links http://www.excelsior-usa.com/ to http://www.excelsiorjet.com/!!
What's happening?
 
7:14 AM
@Unihedron looks like it's the same thing, maybe the "jet" is the newer domain?
(the emails in "excelsiorjet" are pointing to "excelsior-usa")
 
Might be, but the editor comments are simply "updated link", might be fishy, so I had to ask :)

The phrasing might be less than ideal @Braiam, but he's making a point which you entirely removed.
 
Plus, he's the OP, he can rollback if he feels it's important.
 
@Bart which point? I feel the post intention is kept without it and having it actually distracts
 
I don't think it's necessarily distracting (however much I hate the term "meta police") and sets out what lead to the OP writing the very Meta post. If he wants it there, let it be. I don't see anything particularly harmful.
I'd love to see the post he is referring to though.

@DroidDev now working, so maybe just caching... and probably it's on imgur side so little SE can do :(
 
@ShadowWizard still not working for me, but ok, that's not such a big issue, I regularly ignore many bugs on SE.

Sigh, people editing posts without understanding the code and people approving said edits without understanding the code either
 
@Unihedron this guy is a very persistent spammer
 
@ThiefMaster so sorry! :(
 
@ThiefMaster well, == is indeed incorrect in the code
 
No? It checks if the pointer is still the same
i.e. if the dot is the first character
 
oh.
sorry
strcmp will work as well, though, won't it?
 
2:27 PM
yeah, in that case it does
but comparing the pointers is cheaper
 
so, rollback, I assume?
 
Rollback + yell at him in a comment?
 
rollback + add an explanation why comparing pointers is fine in this case but you should use strcmp in most other cases?
an explanation would be nice ;-)

What's the approved way of reporting users who are likely fraudulently reviewing posts? (ie, one who did a 'looks ok' on a obvious delete in LQ, and his review history is a ton of 'looks ok' and equivalents)?
 
Good morning!
 
Joe
Flag a post they reviewed?
 
2:44 PM
@Joe flag the post and include many links
 
@Joe Flag one of your own questions or one of their posts and give sufficient evidence
 
Joe
or stone then in the streets?
Okay, just confirming. Thanks!
 
Use custom flag and give lots of evidence
 
lots of evidence
 
Joe
Does custom flag have a character limit? :)
 
2:45 PM
Pastebin it then.
 
Joe
Well, what's 'lots of evidence'
 
But the point it, make your flag irrefusable!
 
Joe
just wondering what the character limit is
 
@Joe 500, but you can use short/share link

but i'll put it to you this way
at 5m ago he reviewed 10 posts
in a 3 minute span, 20
and 100% of them are "looks ok"
so I don't think it'll be too hard to make the case ;)

Of course
i'm pretty fast too
 
2:47 PM
I skip a lot so I'm slower.

but this was a blatant, blatant bad one
and the review audits are behaving particularly slowly (and he also probably had a review ban based on the exactly 7 day gap in reviews)
when audits are extra slow = easy to get past them :)
