iPad jQuery restrictions on multiselect drop downs within the parent lable tag

When I feel everything works, there has to be some platform or gadget that has to act up. Today it was the iPad HTML5 rendering with jQuery. I have a five step registration form that was tested and over tested on Windows, Mac, Androids, Kindle Fire and iPad; and only now, it is found to be something that doesn't work. The bug turns out to be "label" tag that encapsulates the select tag's of organization list and on-change update of another select tag below the organization select tag which is address locations of the referring organization. It seems, because the label tag is the parent tag for both selects, it will only allow the drop down of organization list to be selected. The minute the address select is touched, the iPad closes the list of addresses and reopens the list of organization names. It is silly, yet, it may have it's reasons. I have to go back to wizard page and readjust many such label tags which have multiple select tags. I guess today's is one of those days, something you learn every day!

Update 1: I thought I resolved the issue with iPad but it seems the error has it ways of coming back again and again. First the issue was the LABEL tag, now it seems the first option of multi-select will not get selected in iPad. I do not understand why it is not selecting the first option, but it will work if it had more than one option. I wish there was some way to capture the issue.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…

Working hours in six months to a year

I usually try to look for how many hours I have worked on a given project and what hours that I  spend on learning or network management tasks.

Below I have added some hours calculation, after finding the breakdown by months from Berkeley website.


2017Working hours six months (Jan 1st - Jun 30th): 
130 days x 8 hours =  1040 hours

Working hours six months (Jul 1st - Dec 31th): 
130 days x 8 hours =  1040 hours

Working hours for the year:
1040 hours + 1040 hours = 2080 hours
