Saving Charts to a Variable

Saving Charts to a Variable

In all the examples we’ve created so far, the cfchart tag has always been used to render the chart directly to the browser. Behind the scenes, cfchart is generating a SWF,

JPG, or PNG file and sending the necessary HTML code to the browser to render the file. For example, if you run the code in Example 17-1 and do a “View Source” in your web browser, you’ll see that ColdFusion MX automatically generated the necessary HTML object and embed tags to display the SWF (Flash) version of the chart:

1.2. Location Application Architectures

Chandu Thota O'Reilly Media ePub

Beyond the application categories, you need to be aware of application architectures when building location-based applications. Location-based applications can be built using two different architectures:

Disconnected location-based applications

Connected location-based applications

Let's look at each of these categories in detail.

Disconnected location-based applications contain location information and related processing framework locally on the hosted computer hard disk, which means that network connectivity is not required for the application's functionality. A typical disconnected location-based application architecture is shown in Figure 1-1.

The main advantage of this architecture is that the location data resides locally, so the applications can provide a faster and richer user experience; however, having data locally may also be viewed as a limitation for other reasons, such as the size of the application (since location data can easily grow to a few Gigabytes) and the data becoming out-of-date due to lack of frequent updates. The advantages include:

3 - Won't they just Grow Out of it? Binge Drinking and the Adolescent Process

Karnac Books ePub

Marion Bower

After a psychology degree, Marion Bower trained as a social worker and then as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist; she currently works at the Tavistock Clinic and in private practice, her experience of young people abusing alcohol coming from both settings.

This chapter moves from a sociological commentary on the developing culture of binge drinking (particularly in young girls) to the central importance of the adolescent process in which the experiences of infancy are revisited. Given that separation from the parents is the prime task of adolescence, pathological experiences of separation in infancy are reawakened; the ensuing anxiety is contained by the pharmacological and psychological powers of alcohol in increasing amounts.

The chapter explores the complex symbolic meanings of alcohol to the young person using Kleinian developmental theory, particularly projective identification and the death instinct, a later component of Freud's thinking. Throughout, the clinical material emphasizes the fear of dependency and the possibility of loss; such closeness is to be avoided at all costs yet it is that trusting relationship which is most needed. Bower stresses the importance of not giving up on the addict despite his or her attacks on the therapy—a theme apparent in many of the chapters in this book.

CHAPTER EIGHT: Existential phenomenology

Chris Scalzo Karnac Books ePub

Existential phenomenology


Jacob was a child I saw for eighteen months, who was six years old when we began our work together. He was referred to me as a child in “need” of psychotherapy by his social worker. Throughout much of his life, he had been an unfortunate witness to the violent and often drunken abuse his father directed towards his mother. His only respite from this volatile environment appeared to be when his father went “missing” for several days, even weeks, at a time. Just prior to him being referred to me, however, his father had been arrested and charged with assault after his mother had gained the confidence to involve the police, and a social worker had quickly been appointed.

I always looked forward to my sessions with Jacob. Although often sombre and, indeed, rarely laughing or smiling, he carried with him an air of maturity and sophistication which belied his age and circumstances. He was six years old, but conversed with me in a very adult way, and I often reflected to colleagues in supervision that if he were twenty or thirty years older, he could almost be a friend. During the beginning of our work together, Jacob chose toplay little, instead preferring to sit and chat about the events of his week and what he had done, generally in a quite factual manner. He would tell me what he ate, what lessons he enjoyed at school, and so on, rarely mentioning his family relationships or his emotional response to recent events, even when prompted to do so.
