Android: Create shortcut to sub-menu in Settings

Image
I have to switch Wi-Fi all the time at my customer site to connect to internet. It takes time to open Settings and then Wi-Fi instead of open Wi-Fi menu directly. So, I prefer to create a shortcut into my Home screen straight.

Suppose that in Honeycomb version you just press anywhere in Home screen, there will be the context menu for you to create shortcut. Unfortunately in Ice Cream Sandwich, it doesn't work like that.

I used to install "Go Launcher EX" to help that but I found out later that in ICS also support this action as well by looking for shortcut in Widgets.

Environment
O/S: Android Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.4
Device: Samsung Galaxy S III

Open "Application Drawer" from the dock menu. Select "Widgets" tab. Slide to left or right until you found "Settings Shortcut 1 x 1". Long press at the widget and drag to Home screen. There will be the pop-up sub-menu list, slide up or down to find the sub-menu that you want to make a shortcut and…

Android: Create group for icons

Image
You may accustom with group of icons in iPhone that is created just by dragging icon of an application over the other. Here in ICS calls "Folder".

It works a bit different in ICS. Without installing other application you can use ICS function to create.

Environment:
O/S: Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) version 4.0.4
Device: Samsung Galaxy S III

Long press anywhere at the Home screen which you want to create group of icon (Folder).Select "Add to Home screen" in the "Home screen" pop-up. In "Add to Home screen" pop-up, select "Folder". The system will create empty folder into the Home screen.
Now you can drag icons into the folder that you just created.
When you click at the folder, it will show the icons you just added. You can click at "Unnamed Folder" and assign the folder name.

Mobile: Capture screen for Samsung Galaxy S3

As far as I know, there are 2 ways to perform the screen capture.

Environment:
O/S: Android ICS version 4.0.4
Device: Samsung Galaxy S III

Option 1: Swipe your palm from right to left of the screen.
This option is very fast to capture the screen. but it's kind of annoy when your hand accidentally press an icon or menu, scrolling the screen or unable to capture the pop-menu.

Option 2: Press "Home" button and "Power" button simultaneously.
It's good to capture exactly what is showing in the current screen.

Oracle: Create MVIEW using DBLINK with COMMIT COMPLETE option

Image
I'm using MVIEW (Materialized Views) to select data from another database through DBLINK and set schedule to refresh daily.

The problem came when my user commented that they need the data from the source database faster. So, my team tried to set MVIEW with COMMIT COMPLETE option to get the data from source table immediately whenever the data is updated.
