PHP: Mail Sending

We will see here the simple mail sending format in PHP,

Before sending mail need to enble and modify the below line PHP.ini file

; For Win32 only.
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from =

the code to send a mail is,

mail(“”,”test subject”,”test message”,””);



The below code will explain the convertion format from number to Word Equivalent. For example the the number is taken here 9999999 and the word equivalent is, Nine Million Nine Hundred and Ninety-Nine Thousand Nine Hundred and Ninety-Nine,

The below is code,


function convert_number($number)
if (($number < 0) || ($number > 999999999))
throw new Exception("Number is out of range");

$Gn = floor($number / 1000000); /* Millions (giga) */
$number -= $Gn * 1000000;
$kn = floor($number / 1000); /* Thousands (kilo) */
$number -= $kn * 1000;
$Hn = floor($number / 100); /* Hundreds (hecto) */
$number -= $Hn * 100;
$Dn = floor($number / 10); /* Tens (deca) */
$n = $number % 10; /* Ones */

$res = "";

if ($Gn)
$res .= convert_number($Gn) . " Million";

if ($kn)
$res .= (empty($res) ? "" : " ") .
convert_number($kn) . " Thousand";

if ($Hn)
$res .= (empty($res) ? "" : " ") .
convert_number($Hn) . " Hundred";

$ones = array("", "One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Five", "Six",
"Seven", "Eight", "Nine", "Ten", "Eleven", "Twelve", "Thirteen",
"Fourteen", "Fifteen", "Sixteen", "Seventeen", "Eightteen",
$tens = array("", "", "Twenty", "Thirty", "Fourty", "Fifty", "Sixty",
"Seventy", "Eigthy", "Ninety");

if ($Dn || $n)
if (!empty($res))
$res .= " and ";

if ($Dn < 2)
$res .= $ones[$Dn * 10 + $n];
$res .= $tens[$Dn];

if ($n)
$res .= "-" . $ones[$n];

if (empty($res))
$res = "zero";

return $res;

$cheque_amt = 9999999;

ExtJS Tips for GridPanel Row – Marking, Colouring, Focusing & Special Key Event Firing

ExtJs, a powerful library for developing web application. Bit complex to learn & start with, but once you practice some examples it becomes easy. You need to have good knowledge in Object Oriented Programming to extend & implement your own features or controls, and to see power of JavaScript & ExtJS. Working with ExtJs is really interesting! Here listing some hints that may help you in your programming. Array-Grid example that comes with ext-2.0.2 is modified to demonstrate the same.

  1. Focusing grid on load to activate down & up arrows
  2. Colouring grid rows based on some criteria
  3. Key events (especially Navigation keys) usage in grid with Internet Explorer (IE7) & Firefox
  4. Marking selected grid row with some icon / text color change

The code in action can be seen at ExtJs Array Grid Sample
Same can be downloaded from: ExtJs Array Grid Sample – Source Code (~311 KB since extjs images & base scripts).
Main files that are modified: array-grid.html, array-grid.js & examples.css.

1. To focus the grid.

After rendering the grid


2. Row colouring

Mainly this is CSS twist with use of getRowClass to change the text color of whole row.

grid.getView().getRowClass = function(record, index){
return (<0.7 ? (<0.5 ? (<0.2 ? 'red-row' : 'green-row') : 'blue-row') : '');

3. Key Events

While working GridPanel, along with focusing the first row we were in a need of implementing the making of rows selected by user with Left Arrow & Right Arrow, as well they can navigate up & down with Up Arrow & Down Arrow.

The below code works partially in IE. It won’t capture navigational (along with arrows, page up, page down, home, end) keys & some special keyevents. But it works perfect in Firefox.

grid.on('keypress', function(e){

Whereas ‘keydown’ keyboard event works perfectly in both browsers for all keys. But the e.getKey() in IE won’t get the key code for navigational keys & some special keys. So need to change that to normal “e.keyCode”.

There maybe some property to set in ExtJS like in KeyNav -> forceKeyDown to true to make the getKey & keypress work in IE & FF. Not sure where & how exactly, but now the above quick solution worked without any problem.

grid.on('keydown', function(e){

4. Marking Selected Grid Rows

In order to mark the selected rows, experimented on task example provided in ExtJs with Google Gears. Before experimenting used the data.columnName = ‘some value’ to set & gridview’s refresh() to apply. But at a time only a row used to change & previous selected rows used to change back.

In this same Array-Grid example added a new boolean value ‘true – flase’ column as first column ‘Status’. Added a ‘renderer’ to this new column, which sets a css class with empty box image if vale is false / tick mark if value true. Also 2 events, one mouse click and the other keydown event to grid to change the value of particular data element. Here the tricky point is if we change the value of it in store record, then automatically the respective CSS will be applied to it through its ‘renderer’. As said before if we change the ‘data’ in grid it won’t work, we need to apply the change of value in record of the store.

The code & css is

grid.on('keydown', function(e){
if(e.keyCode == 37){
var rec = grid.getSelectionModel().getSelected();
rec.set('status', false);
}else if(e.keyCode == 39){
var rec = grid.getSelectionModel().getSelected();
rec.set('status', true);

grid.on(‘rowclick’, function(grid, rowIndex, e){
var rec =;
rec.set(‘status’, !rec.get(‘status’));

.task-completed, .task-check-over {
background: transparent url(../images/check.gif) no-repeat center -16px;
.task-check-over {
background: transparent url(../images/check.gif) no-repeat center -32px;

Core JavaScript

JavaScript is a scripting language widely used for client-side web development. It was the originating dialect of the ECMAScript standard. It is a dynamic, weakly typed, prototype-based language with first-class functions. JavaScript was influenced by many languages and was designed to look like Java, but be easier for non-programmers to work with.

JavaScript, despite the name, is essentially unrelated to the Java programming language, although both have the common C syntax, and JavaScript copies many Java names and naming conventions. The language’s name is the result of a co-marketing deal between Netscape and Sun, in exchange for Netscape bundling Sun’s Java runtime with their then-dominant browser. The key design principles within JavaScript are inherited from the Self and Scheme programming languages.

The more information on Javascript is available from the Javascript Bible is available as a PDF to download,
