Pollen Today Widget

I want a today Widget to show pollen count.

I downloaded:

Clarityn’s Pollen Forecast UK by Bayer HealthCare AG

https://appsto.re/gb/tPFfw.i

They have a website

http://www.claritynallergy.co.uk/allergyforecast/?zip=X

It doesn’t have the Widget I wanted so I started looking for an API.

Progress
I’ve started building my own

The Widget needs a lot of work but the basis is there, I’ve built a framework that gets all the data. Now to finish the UI…

Multi Select TableView

Want to select more than one row in a TableView?

Adding A Settings Bundle

I’d like to add a Settings section to my app to show Licenses and other info.

Maybe put the Options section there too.

Run a perl script:

perl <scriptname.pl>

FMDB

Useful ways to get data out of FMDB.

Count

NSUInteger count = [db intForQuery:@"SELECT COUNT(field) FROM table_name"];

Make sure to include the FMDatabaseAdditions.h header file to use intForQuery:

Max

NSUInteger max = [db intForQuery:@"SELECT MAX(field) FROM table_name"];

Min

NSUInteger min = [db intForQuery:@"SELECT MIN(field) FROM table_name"];

Average

NSUInteger average = [db intForQuery:@"SELECT AVG(field) FROM table_name"];

Sum (Σ)

NSUInteger sum = [db intForQuery:@"SELECT SUM(field) FROM table_name"];

Total

NSUInteger total = [db intForQuery:@"SELECT TOTAL(field) FROM table_name"];

Done button on NumPad

I’ve been researching adding a done button to a NumPad and keep getting the same error:

Can't find keyplane that supports type 4 for keyboard iPhone-PortraitChoco-NumberPad; using 2705787216_PortraitChoco_iPhone-Simple-Pad_Default

And it seems to take a lot of code.

Another option would be to add a toolbar above the keyboard.

Not sure how well this will work with TPKeyboardAvoiding but let’s see, and it does!

Grouping Data in Sections

I’ve been looking round for some tutorials on how to group data in sections.

This is unbelievably easy in CoreData but how do you do it with your own data and models.

Previous articles I’d found I either couldn’t get to work or didn’t work as expected.

I’ve recently found this article:

SQLite Help

Order By Date

Dates are stored as TEXT or if you want a number from 1970.

If they are TEXT and you want to sort them you need to convert them to a Date first.

SELECT * FROM Table ORDER BY date(dateColumn) DESC
