Is there a way to force "desktop view" on my iPad 1 when using Safari?

Google, in their control frenzy, has now changed iGoogle to default to Tablet view on iPads. Why??? Here is one solution but it does not use Safari:
Question:
Is there a secret to getting the old igoogle homepage back, or is it gone for good on the iPad 2?  I still have the homepage on my Mac, so the problem is just with the iPad.  Any help anybody can give to get the home page back would be greatly appreciated.
Answer:This issue is with the Tablet view. You can switch to Classic view at the bottom, but as soon as you type anything in the url bar you get reverted to Tablet. I have the Atomic Browser installed on my iPad and have set it to identify itself as a desktop. iGoogle loads fine on that. I am not aware of any such setting for Safari on the iPad.
Google fails to understand that we do not need sub featured pages for our tablets. Tablets work fine with the desktop versions. They have probably concluded that iGoogle pages are too busy for tablets and so have disabled it. Tablet search has been significantly degraded by Goggle with elimination of the pinch and zoom and cached features. It should be possible to make a sticky setting change to Classic view on tablets. Most other settings stick, but not the Classic view. I dont think Google get it anymore.
Is there a way to force Safari ,on an iPad, to do this?

The website may alter its page display based on the browser ID that is transmitted to the site from your browser. Some browsers on the iPad like iCab allow you change the browser ID to something desktop-oriented. Safari does not provide this capability.

  • Is there a way to force a View Object to query the database always?

    Dear All,
    Is there a way to force a view object to always scan the database table to read the latest data?
    Here's my use case.
    I have a page that loads data then I have a button which executes the following code.
    viewObject.setApplyViewCriteriaName("SampleCriteria");
    viewObject.setNamedWhereClauseParam("arg1", "test");
    viewObject.executeQuery();
    RowSetIterator it = viewObject.createRowSetIterator(null); 
    while(it.hasNext()) {
         /* More Code */
    }Suppose after page load, I edited some row in the table and then I clicked the button. I notice that my edited row
    was not reflected in the query.
    I am not sure but is there some configuration to check so that when the viewobject executes it will always query the data
    from the table?
    I am thinking that there is some level of caching and I want to disable it. If I restart my application, I notice that it is able to read the latest data.
    JDEV 11.1.1.5

    By default a view object performs its query against the database to retrieve the rows in its resulting row set. However, you can also use view objects to perform in-memory searches and sorting to avoid unnecessary trips to the database.
    The view object's query mode controls the source used to retrieve rows to populate its row set. For more details please refer: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B31017_01/web.1013/b25947/bcadvvo005.htm

  • Is there any way to force the applet to load the file without using cache?

    Hi,
    I have the applet that renders some data from a file specified as the parameter. The problem is that the user can do something, that changes the input file and reloads the page, but the applet renders old data (from browser cache most probably)
    Is there any way to force the applet to load the file without using cache?

    The initial view (IV) settings within a PDF file are static tags - they can't be made to dynamically-adapt based on the window dimensions,it's the renderer (Acrobat, Reader, or whatever else is opening the file) that decides if and how it will follow the IV requested by the file header.
    It would be possible to use a Page Open action on the first page of the file, which does some nasty math with the various doc.*WindowRect objects to work out how much "wasted" space there is, and then set the doc.layout and doc.zoomType properties - but page actions are a different concept to IV as the zoom will reset itself every time that page is viewed. Users don't like their application apparently fiddling with the zoom level without being told to!

  • Is there a way to prevent DPS from going to next article when using swipe left/swipe right?

    I have placed web content in an article in Indesign with swipe left and swipe right function and it works just fine except for one thing. When swiping the animation starts but it also goes to the next/previous article in the folio. Is there a way to fix this?

    Hey Eric,
    Thanks for taking the time. Unfortunately no that does not solve it. Same as swipe it will get me there and it will show separate programs spaced out. The issue I am having is that all my open word files are bunched up in a pile on top of each other. I can see the edges of each one but I want them to be separated from each other enough that I can visually identify what file is what.
    Again, thanks for trying, it is appreciated.

  • Is there a way to have all (exchange) email on iPad even when offline?

    I would like to have access to my work (exchange) email when offline (travelling). Is there a way of keeping a selected amount on my iPad, not just the most recent items?

    Thanks. I was already aware of this setting.
    The issue is that I use a number of folders and unless I manually open each one a sync whilst online, when offline the only emails that are available are those from the last sync, e.g. there is no automatic, background synchronisation of folders not in use.
    Ideas?

  • Is there a way to prevent MacBook Air to go to sleep when using Spotify?

    I have a Macbook Air with the latest version of Maverics and I often listen to music on it, via airplay and headphones. This works great, but when I'm not using the computer for anything else but spotify it goes to sleep after the specified time and I loose the sound. I wonder whether there is  way to adjust the settings so that only certain programs like Spotify can prevent my Mac from going to sleep when they are active.
    Thanks a bunch!

  • Is there a way to keep all the music on my ipod when using a new computer

    i want to keep all my music but when i go to sync my ipod to my new computer itunes says it will erase all my music. I dont want to lose 600 songs

    Try this way:
    Make sure your new computer is authorized in iTunes. Disable autosync in itunes, connect your ipod, right click on it in the device list and choose backup.
    This will save data, pictures and settings to itunes. See what's included in this backup here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766
    Transfer your purchases the same way to copy all apps and bought media from the Store to your computer.
    Set up at least one contact and event on your computer to be able the merge your calendars and contacts after your ipod got wiped during the first sync.
    The rest of the data can be restored from the backup you made.
    Restoring: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414
    Music is one way only, from the computer to your device, unless you bought the songs in itunes and transferred your purchases.
    There is 3rd party software out there, but not supported by Apple, see this thread: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2013615&tstart=0
    Saving data to a computer before setting it up again is also explained here: How to back up your data and set up as a new device

  • Is there any way to force Sun C++ Preprocessor preserve whitespace?

    Hello!
    I'm preprocessing simple source file:
    void test()
        int i;
    }with command: CC -E test.cpp
    and CC preprocessor eats all whitespace at the beginning of each line, like this:
    void test()
    int i;
    }Is there any way to force CC preprocessor preserve whitespace?

    You cannot use the C preprocessor on C++ code, for at least two major reasons.
    1. The default -I options in CC are not the same as for cc. Try adding
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    to your example.
    Even if you add the missing -I options, the conventions for finding the C++ standard headers are not known to the C preprocessor.
    Example:
    % cc -P -I/opt/SUNWspro/prod/include/CC/Cstd -I/opt/SUNWspro/prod/include/CC -I/opt/SUNWspro/prod/include/cc z.c
    "z.c", line 2: cannot find include file: <cstdlib>
    cc: acomp failed for z.c2. The predefined macros (-D options and predefined macros built into the compilers) are different for cc and CC.
    In particular, the C compiler predefines macros saying it is a C compiler. The C++ compiler predefines macros saying it is a C++ compiler. Code that is conditionalized on whether it is compiled by the C or C++ compiler will give different results. If you add -D options for C++ macros, the results will depend on the way the tests are coded. That is, testing for a C compiler or a C++ compiler will not give mutually exclusive answers, as they would if you use the correct compiler. The Solaris headers have conditional code for C and C++.

  • Is there a way to force a user to view all of Accordion Widget?

    Is there a way to force a user to read, or at least view,
    all sections of the Accordion Widget? We want to make sure the learner reads
    all of the material before advancing to the next slide. Is there a way to do
    this? I have searched all over, but I have been unable to find.

    No way. This is a static learning interaction, no event that could be used eventually. Personally I prefer offering reading material that is engaging over looking for a way to push the learner to look (reading doesn't mean he understands or grabs it) at all the stuff. But that is my teacher's past, if student doesn't read your stuff, something is wrong with the stuff, not with the student.
    If you have to force, you'll have to find another way than the accordion interaction .

  • Is there a way to force color management ON in Flash Player 10

    Here's my problem:
    I have a wide gamut display (calibrated and profiled) and
    with a wide gamut display, it is very important to have web
    browsing (and ideally everything else) fully color managed, because
    unmanaged colors get displayed horribly wrong.
    Firefox 3 supports full end-to-end color management (when
    switched on). It even wisely assumes sRGB for CSS color values and
    untagged images. But of course, Firefox 3 can't control Flash
    rendering and this makes it impossible to view web pages that
    contain Flash with correct (or even near-correct) colors.
    So is there a way to force Flash Player 10's color management
    ON by default? I know it is probably not a good idea in many cases,
    but in my case, it would work a lot better than having if off by
    default.
    I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.5.

  • Is there a way to adjust the settings on launchpad so that when I swipe into it all the open apps/pages are fully separated (like in exposé) so that I can fully view all of them simultaneously?

    Hi Apple community,
    This is my first go at this so be kind,
    My question concerns launchpad. Coming from Snow Leopard I had been using spaces. I like to keep certain bundles of programs on separate desktops, for example all word processing related tasks in one place. I have set up the equivalent on Yosemite.
    My problem is concerns the loss of exposé. Now I know when you swipe into launch pad you get a very similar effect but the issue I am having concerns the "zoom out" effect when you swipe into launchpad. With exposé all open apps/pages etc would be fully exposed - in my case several (sometimes as many as 9 word documents). What I am running into is when I do this in / into launch pad the "pile" of docs is exposed but they are still overlapping so I can't get a good look at which is which and visually identify where I want to navigate to.
    My question is this; Is there a way to adjust the settings on launchpad so that when I swipe into it all the open apps/pages are fully separated (like in exposé) so that I can fully view all of them simultaneously? If so, instructions on how to do so would be greatly appreciated. Any alternative suggestions to doing this outside of launchpad are also welcome. If there is an exposé app for example, I would be quite willing to go that route.
    My main concern is being able to quickly (ie a touchpad gesture) expand all the open pages so I can bounce between them.
    Much thanks from a loyal Apple friend.

  • Is there a way to force a new session so my "on new session" code will run?

    I'm using apex.oracle.com and I find values of application (global) and page items persisting across logins.
    I didn't expect that? I thought they would go away when I logged out of APEX. But I can change the values, logout, and log back in to the same values. And when I login and start an application, it's not running my "shared components > application processes" initialization code which is set "on new session".
    I thought each login would be a distinct new session with it's distinct set of items. (see definition below)
    So when I run an application, is there a way to force a new session so my "on new session" code will run?
    >
    What Is a Session?
    A session is a logical construct that establishes persistence (or stateful behavior) across page views. Each session is assigned a unique identifier. The Application Express engine uses this identifier (or session ID) to store and retrieve an application's working set of data (or session state) before and after each page view.
    Because sessions are entirely independent of one another, any number of sessions can exist in the database at the same time. Also, because sessions persist in the database until purged by an administrator, a user can return to an old session and continue running an application long after first launching it. A user can also run multiple instances of an application simultaneously in different browser sessions.
    Sessions are logically and physically distinct from Oracle database sessions used to service page requests. A user runs an application in a single Oracle Application Express session from log in to log out with a typical duration measured in minutes or hours. Each page requested during that session results in the Application Express engine creating or reusing an Oracle database session to access database resources. Often these database sessions last just a fraction of a second.

    I cleaned up the copy of the Select List code in APEX 4.1.xxx which was not operating correctly before. Now it matches what I have in APEX 4.2.yyyy. And, drum roll please, the select list seemingly works fine there (4.1) as well. But now, the initialization code--which was working fine(!)--FAILS in 4.1!
    <font size="3"><font color="red">•<font face="courier new">
    Okay. Maybe this will help. 1) I logged in. Ran the login page but did not login. Opened the "session" window and wrote down the session ID. Logged out and back in. 2) Ran the login page but did not login. Opened the "session" window and .... it has the same session ID? 3) <b>So the session is persisting across logins!! How is that possible?</b>
    (More) When I log into 3 different applications, I get a different session ID for each but repeated logins always give the same session ID for any given session. </font>
