Life Cycle

The methods are called in the following order.

OnInit – Configuration values set using WebBrowsable properties and those in web part task pane are loaded into the web part. Initialize the values here.
LoadViewState – The view state of the web part is populated over here. (When its a post back)
CreateChildControls – All the controls specified are created and added to controls collection. When the page is being rendered for the first time the method generally occurs after the OnLoad() event. In case of postback, it is called before the OnLoad() event. We can make use of EnsureChildControls() - It checks to see if the CreateChildControls method has been called and if not it would call it.
OnLoad
User Generated Event – for e.g. button click on the web part.
OnPreRender – Here we can change any of the web part properties before the control output is drawn.
RenderContents – Html Output is generated.
SaveViewState - View state of the web part is serialized and saved.
Dispose
UnLoad

IT Returns online made easy

It is that time of the year again, when you have to file your taxes. For those who want to avoid the hassles of going to an agent, or standing in a long queue, here is a super tip. It takes a maximum of 30 minutes to file your IT returns using this method.

  1. Open the site https://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in
  2. Register for user (give the user id as your PAN number)
  3. You will receive the registration mail
  4. Login to the site with the credentials provided in the mail
  5. Go to downloads menu. Download ITR1 for person paid salary.(You have different form for each category)
  6. Fill out all the details in the ITR form
  7. Validate each page General1, General2, TDS (fill either 21 or 23)
  8. Click on Generate XML
  9. Check the summary and click on ‘Save XML’
  10. Click ‘Submit return’ in the home page
  11. Select the file and click on Upload. (Do not select the check box here... as it requires the Java runtime updated...)
  12. you will see a message that it is successfully submitted.. if not error then go to (step 11)
  13. Go to my profile menu -> My Returns
  14. Select ‘2009-2010’ and click ‘Submit’
  15. Click on the link ‘Click here’ to get the submitted ITR form ... or they would have already sent the copy to you.

Note: If the person doesn’t have digital signature, then after submitting returns he/she gets ITR V. This has to be submitted to the nearest income tax office within 15 days of filing tax returns.
If the person has digital signature, then he/she gets online acknowledgement, and nothing more has to be done for filing.


In the online world, I say it is time now to stop encouraging consultants or brokers. Enjoy filing online and save Rs 200/- or more, that you pay to tax consultants.

Tips for Better Productivity

Deadlines
Don’t rely on deadlines. Start soon and complete asap. have a clear vision or plan on your work.

Less Stress - More Work
If you have your 9-6 work, you have 15 hours for your life to have fun and spend time with family.

Minimize OverNight Work
The quality of work will be less compared to day.
More prone to bugs, High pressure and frustration.

Red Rabbit Technique:
If you get constant comments from the clients or the Boss
That looks great, but can you please make that line a bit thinner
Why did you choose 24px Verdana for headline? I think 25px will do much better
That green you picked is too green. Is there a way you can change it to something more yellow?
I love those icons very much. Can you move them 2px up? And make them 2% brighter

First you need do create the design in the way you think is the best. Move it around, polish it, use the fonts you like… Create whatever you think the final design should look like. Save your masterpiece and backup it.

It’s time for Red Rabbit! Basically, what you need to do now is to decrease the quality of your design. Create one simple eye catching mistake everyone will notice. Something like the sample I’ve provided above. You can do practically everything you wouldn’t do for real. Here are some ideas:
Destroy your color scheme. Add a strong color that is out of any harmony from your layout

Change your headline font to some old-school one like Times New Roman (this might be to obvious)

Replace your cool photo you’ve spent 3 days to find with something you found on Google Image Search

Windows 7 Review

I have been using this since RC and couple of weeks ago Microsoft has come up with the BETA.

Tested in the following specification

Desktop Compaq Presario (1GB +P4(2+GHz) +40GB)

Laptop IBM R52(2GB +M(1.73 GHz)+40GB)

Plus (+)

Its seems to be like working on a windows xp machine with a Vista look and feel.
Comes with dozens of drivers and you don't have to manually install anything.
Rich UI
Cool features of Docking around the screen as you drag.
File transfer and installing software's are much faster.
Boots up faster and wakes in a second from sleep(not as I do snooze several times).
Minimum 1GB RAM is a good start.
Choosing different network on the fly to protect your PC with firewall.
Drag a window right and left like wiping the screen will minimize all other windows.
New Taskbar will a lot of features.

Minus(-)

Depends a Good Graphics card and doesn't go well with the normal ones.(My PC Sub score 1.0)
Aero and other tabbed preview are disabled.
Painting issues in the desktop rarely.
If some errors are thrown after installation it will not correct (do a clean install again)
If System hangs no way of using Ctrl+Alt+Del have to do a hard reboot.
Space occupied for installation 12GB after installing all the software's it comes to 18GB
I would suggest people using Windows XP can give a try to this.Its really yet another good product from Microsoft.

(Note:Beta download is free to use till June 2010)
