You may RESTfully submit to your Google Forms…

You wanna submit responses to your Google Forms in a REST-ful API call, or rather programmatically in code or easily from a Postman-like tool? Then you’re welcome to stick around here… 😉

So you remember my last post on my journey of hacking around Google Forms, trying to be a smart-ass eh! Let’s auto fill Google Forms with URL parameters… Oh yeah that one right there, well that was just the tip of the ice berg of me playing around with Google Forms! Let me share the next set of cool tricks I figured out here! 😀

This little trick of submitting data RESTfully to your Google form, could become very handy if you wanted to build your own improved custom UI for submitting data to your Google Form, along with your own validations for the fields or even to quickly populate a bunch of sample data from your Form for experimental reason. Them awesome possibilities are endless! 😉

Well.. Google Forms with RESTful ?!?

So during my adventures into messing around with Google Forms, I figured out that we can submit data into our Google Forms using their REST API endpoint! So how cool is that eh, we can directly post data into our form RESTfully, from whatever the medium you prefer, programmatically, or Postman like tool! 😉

So in this post lemme share that cool trickery bits with you…

Let the hack begin…

Now keep in mind unlike the last post, this is a bit advanced trick which requires some experience on HTML and web development, well it could easily help at least.

We’re gonna get the REST endpoint source of our Google Form, package our question-field-answer data into a request object and submit it to the REST endpoint directly, using Postman or Programmatically in code.

Now for this post also let’s use the same sample questionnaire Google Form that I created for last post’s demo.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuZiyN-uQBbmmSLxT81xGUfgjMQpUFyJ4D7r-0zjegTy_0HA/viewform

Little sneak peak:

So now we got a Google Form, let’s start the little hack by finding the field IDs in the form…

Yes, you still gotta hook up the fields!

Remember in my last post I explained about the Fields in our Google Form having unique identifiers (or IDs) that we can use to attach data into for submission? well you still need em! 😛

Now for this you could still use the methods we discussed in the previous post to get the list of ID of the fields in your Google Form, but this time I’ll introduce some easier ways, since we’re moving to a bit advance trick…

Hooking up to the fields and Endpoint…

Keep in mind this requires a little bit experience in web dev! 😉 Basically we’re going to get the list of Field IDs by tracing the submission request call in our Google Form, which will also help us figure out the REST endpoint link.

So open up your Google Form in Chrome browser and open up developer tools by using the browser menu or on Windows click “Ctrl+Shift+I keys” in the keyboard.

Now to make the magic work, go to “Network” tab in the menu list which will allow us monitor the network trace that’s going to be sent from browser to Google Form submission REST endpoint.

Next, you need to fill up all the question fields in your Google Form and hit submit button. Carefully watch what happens in the developer console!

Yep a whole bunch of logs pops up, which shows you the traces of all the network calls that occurred in the last “Submit” button click. And in there the most important request log is the “formResponse” log as you seen above.

Click on formResponse log which will bring up all the details on it.

Now this is quite awesome, it will show you in 4 separate sections all the details about the Google Form submission data endpoint that just occurred.

The Request URL is the endpoint we’re going to be using to submit our form data and the Form Data section is where you’ll find the list of field identifiers of your Google Form.

Now that your holy grail of list of field identifiers in bulk. So go ahead, highlight that chunk of text and copy it up to some notepad to be used later.

Now if you noticed the ID with the “entry.1155533672_sentinel” is something that you can ignore, since its a repeated field coming from the Check box question field in your Google Form!

Just like that you can easily extract the list of IDs of the fields in your Google Form! 😀

entry.1277095329: Bibimbap Turtles
entry.995005981: Banana Plums
entry.1155533672: Dogs with hats
entry.1579749043: Jumping Apples
entry.815399500_year: 2019
entry.815399500_month: 11
entry.815399500_day: 11
entry.940653577_hour: 00
entry.940653577_minute: 30

Now that’s the form data sample from my Google Form! 😉

Shove it up into a Postman!

Or any of the web dev tools you prefer to make a simple REST api call. Up to you! lol Let’s create a POST call with our Google Forms submission API endpoint which we retrieved above.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuZiyN-uQBbmmSLxT81xGUfgjMQpUFyJ4D7r-0zjegTy_0HA/formResponse

Actually this URL you could easily make up using your Google Form publish url, just by replacing viewform with formResponse suffix.

So make sure to add the Body parameters of type x-www-form-urlencoded, and list out all the question field IDs and their values you’d like to inject in to the submission. Since then you need to apply header Content-Type as application/x-www-form-urlencoded which will enable our body parameters object.

Assuming you have set up all the body form fields properly, let’s fire it up! 😀

Fire it up!

Let’s go ahead and execute the REST posting! Hit “Send“, and bam!

You should get a successful 200 Status Code response with the above success message “Your Response has been recorded.” inside a whole bunch of HTML content and if you move to the “Preview” tab, you can see how the rendered UI being returned as well.

Now let’s say if you missed adding any specific field in the request body, that was already marked as “Required” in your Google Forms template, and you had hit “Send”. In that case it would return a bad request 400 Status Code with the error in HTML content, “This is a required question”, or with whatever the custom error message you configured your Google Form with.

Yeah you can even view in the Preview tab with the rendered HTML content.

Pretty neat eh! the same way it would behave in a browser environment you can duplicate in a RESTful environment such as Postman! 😀

Now let’s see how easy it is to push that into some code and execute this programatically!

Shove it up into a Code snippet!

Alright let’s shove that into a simple C# snippet where we could POST a simple HTTP request with the body parameters of our Google Form! Basically replicating the same execution as Postman you saw above! 😀

Above we’re using a simple dotnet HttpClient to execute our Google Form submission REST post call, by adding the body values dictionary into the request.

And then we’re printing the Status Code and the HTTP content response we get.

Hit F5!

If you hit F5 on the above code in Visual Studio, you should get the following.

We are successfully submitting our Google Form data to the REST endpoint and getting the success code, along with the usual HTML content, same as how got in Postman. 😉

Now let’s say if something went wrong, or you missed a required field in your request body,

It will show up the same error handling we got in Postman, as 400 Bad Request! And if you dive into the HTML content, you can see how the error message was also delivered back.

Imagination is the limit yol! 😉

Well… That’s it!

It’s quite straightforward how Google has built these forms in such a simple manner for you to handle them easily as you wish. Kudos Google! You can do all kinds of cool stuff with it! So there you have it, how you may RESTfully submit to your Google Forms!

Share the love! 😀 Cheers!

Let’s auto fill Google Forms with URL parameters…

Wanna auto fill and populate your Google Forms with data by injecting values from the URL itself? Then you’re at the right spot. 😉

So I happened to be playing around with Google Forms recently and came across this requirement to pre-populate some data in my Google Form, which led me to come across this simple solution to automatically fill data in the fields of the Google Form by injecting values in the URL targeting the required fields.

Google Forms, a secret?!

Google Forms are simply, nothing but just a list of fields where the user is required to enter data into and submit.

To my surprise when I was hacking around with it, I noticed that Google Forms allows us to attach URL parameters that could target the fields in the form, and pre-populate them with the given parameters. This is probably a not so well known fact, and works like a charm as long as you scrape out the unique identifiers of the fields.

but many types of Fields..?!

There are many different types of fields that could consist in a Google Form, Text fields, Multiple Choice, Check boxes, Drop down, Date and Time selection fields… and so on. But one thing in common among all those different types of fields is that they all have a specific unique identifiers that represents them, so as long as we nicely grab those unique IDs we’ve got the hook to attach values to them on the loading of the page! 😉

Let the hack begin…

For this simple hack I have created a simple Google Form with a bunch of fields in it to enter data and submit. Just another regular Google Form, containing several fields in different types, to demonstrate how to successfully pass values into them no matter the type of each field.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuZiyN-uQBbmmSLxT81xGUfgjMQpUFyJ4D7r-0zjegTy_0HA/viewform

Little sneak peak:

So now we got a Google Form, let’s start the little hack by finding the field IDs in the form…

Hooking up to the fields…

In order to understand this little hack, you need to treat each question in the Google Form as a field of its own existence, which can be represented by a unique identification that we can use to call upon to attach data into it.

Now let’s try to hook up to the fields of our Google Form by looking up their IDs. There are few ways to hack around to find the IDs, whichever you’re most comfortable you may proceed with…

Method 1: Looking up page source HTML content

One way is to look into the HTML content of our Google Form and manually search for our field identifiers. So open up your Google Form in a web browser and right click on the page -> click on “View Source” option.

Then it will open up the HTML code of the page. Alright now we got the access to the HTML content of our Google Form, let’s hunt for our IDs of question fields. The IDs you’ll find are in the format of, entry.XXXXXXXXX.

So now we know the format of the IDs, let’s search for them using the suffix “entry.”, so click “Ctrl + F” on your keyboard, and type “entry.” which will then highlight all the ID values in the HTML content of the page.

Each and every one of those highlighted search results represents a field that you need to enter data into in the Google Form. If you just read through the surrounding content of those IDs, you’ll see that they’re mapping to each question field in our Google Form.

You can just take a note of the list of entry values popping up in that search result to prepare for our next step.

There’s also another way…

Method 2: Inspecting each field.

Right click on any field -> Click on “Inspect” option, which will open up the HTML code of the specific element that you focused on.

As an example, in the above Text field, when we inspect its HTML content, it shows the “input” element. If you carefully read the HTML code there, you can see how that node has a property called “name” which has the value “entry.1277095329” as you can see above. TADAA! there you have the ID of that specific field.

You can easily find all the identifiers or IDs of the Fields easily in either ways above, so go ahead with whichever you find easier. 😉

Oh, different types of field eh! 😮

So something to keep in mind is that different types of fields such as Drop down selection fields or Check box selection fields, have their IDs assigned to them differently, because their HTML content is differently structured.

Let me show some examples which might help you to track down their IDs! 😉

How to find the ID of a Multiple Choice field?

So one of the tricky fields is the Multiple Choice field in a Google Form. You gotta right click -> Inspect element, where you’ll see a list of Radio button elements attached to the parent “div” element.

Then at the bottom of the parent “div”, you have a hidden “input” field with the ID that we are looking for, that we can use to target in our little hack! 😉

How to find the ID of a Drop down field?

Well this one is quite the same for previous one where you’ll the hidden “input” field at the bottom of the parent “div” element.

You can see in the HTML content how the checkbox options at the top of the list and the bottom containing the ID field with “entry.xxxxxxxx” similarly.

How to find the ID of a Check Boxes field?

Sam as before you have to inspect HTML content of each element of the Check boxes field to get the ID. This will be attached to the “div” as a hidden “input” field, being assigned the same ID for each Checkbox element in the question. Which sorta makes it easier for us to take out the Field ID just by inspecting a single Checkbox element in the question.

As you can see same ID value is assigned to each Check boxes field in the question. 😉 Easy peasy eh!

How to find the ID of a Date selection field?

Well this is a little unique, just go ahead right click to “Inspect” the element as usual in your Chrome. Here you’ll see somewhat similar to the above but with three hidden input fields.

There’s going to be three “input” hidden fields with the ID for each “Year”, “Month”, “Day” selection in a Date selection field. So you need to keep a track of those three IDs, “entry.xxxxxxx_year”, “entry.xxxxxxx_month”, and “entry.xxxxxxx_day” to send a complete data to fill the date selection field.

How to find the ID of a Time selection field?

This is very much similar to Date selection where as you got IDs assigned for “Hour” and “Minute” fields of a Time selection field.

But you need to keep in mind each of those two nodes are inside two separate parent “div” elements as shown above. Anyhow take a note of the “entry.xxxxxxx_hour”, and “entry.xxxxxxx_minute” fields above which are the IDs you’re going to require to set the values for your Time selection.

Well I assume that’s plenty of examples on how to hunt down the field identifiers in your Google Form. Any other given type of field should somewhat follow the same pattern with their hidden fields with the IDs, and it should be easy to figure out as long as you’re comfortable with reading simple HTML content!

Now according to my sample Google Form, following are the IDs of the fields available..

  • entry.1277095329
  • entry.995005981
  • entry.1155533672
  • entry.1579749043
  • entry.815399500_year
  • entry.815399500_month
  • entry.815399500_day
  • entry.940653577_hour
  • entry.940653577_minute

Off to next step then…

Then let’s fill the data…

Alright now we got all the field identifiers in our Google Form, next let’s move on to generating the URL that allows us to inject all those data into the fields. It’s actually quite easy as follows…

entry.xxxxxxxx1=This is answer 1

Given our Google Form link…

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/XxxxXXXxxxXXXx/viewform

We shall attach the all the field ID’s and their injected answers as follows…

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/XxxxXXXxxxXXXx/viewform?entry.xxxxxxxx1=This is answer 1&entry.xxxxxxxx2=This is answer2

We just have to pass the value assigning it to the question field ID, and attach it to the link of the Google Form. Navigating to the above link will present your Google Form with all the fields pre-filled with answers you parsed. More about it below..

Pass the values targeting the fields…

This is something you need to pay extra attention when it comes to the syntax of the URL, making sure to pass the proper field ID’s and their answers, and separating them properly in the URL without a mistake.

Let’s first take a look at how we’re assigning values to the list of fields in my sample Google Form…

  • entry.1277095329=Jumping Beans
  • entry.995005981=Banana Plums
  • entry.1155533672=Dogs with hats
  • entry.1579749043=Running Banana
  • entry.815399500_year=2019
  • entry.815399500_month=10
  • entry.815399500_day=28
  • entry.940653577_hour=03
  • entry.940653577_minute=04

Now those field IDs and their targeted answers should be merged into a URL. So let’s add the separation tag with ‘&’ and put them together accordingly.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuZiyN-uQBbmmSLxT81xGUfgjMQpUFyJ4D7r-0zjegTy_0HA/viewform?
entry.1277095329=Jumping Beans&
entry.995005981=Banana Plums&
entry.1155533672=Dogs with hats&
entry.1579749043=Running Banana&
entry.815399500_year=2019&
entry.815399500_month=10&
entry.815399500_day=28&
entry.940653577_hour=03&
entry.940653577_minute=04

You can see how the fields value assigning nodes are separated with the ‘&’ separation to be merged into a single URL and the complete URL should be formed as follows…

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuZiyN-uQBbmmSLxT81xGUfgjMQpUFyJ4D7r-0zjegTy_0HA/viewform?entry.1277095329=Jumping Beans&entry.995005981=Banana Plums&entry.1155533672=Dogs with hats&entry.1579749043=Running Banana&entry.815399500_year=2019&entry.815399500_month=10&entry.815399500_day=28&entry.940653577_hour=03&entry.940653577_minute=04

Now if you click on the above link, it will show how my sample Google Form is pre-filled with all the answers I passed in the URL targeting each field.

Fire it up!

TADAAA! 😀 Pretty cool eh!

You can cross check with the values I have passed in the URL with the values that are auto-filled in the Google Form! 😉

Something about multiple choice fields…

One thing to keep in mind is that, when it comes to fields that you have to select values, such as Multiple choice fields, Drop down selection fields and so on, they need to be assigned with exact values already given in their list of answers. 😉 Otherwise the values injected will be ignored by the form, and rendered as empty. 😦

Well… That’s it!

You don’t have to set values for all your fields in the URL parameters, just include the ones you’re intending to fill up is enough. This could become very handy if you want to auto fill fields like current date and time. Or if you want to populate pre-set default values in your Form for your targeted audience. Also when you need an easy and quick generating of sample data from your Google Form submissions.

So there you have it, how to easily pre-populate data in your Google Forms!

Share the love! 😀 Cheers!

Wanna easily create an awesome dummy data set ? ;)

So probably you are one of those developers who is looking for a dummy or fake data set for you application development, testing or populate a set of good-looking screenshots for your application ? Yep ! I have been there… 😉

This is something almost every developer had gone through in their lifetime, and most of the time they end up going through the burden of writing a whole bunch of scripts from scratch to populate the data set and so on…

Well, my story…

Sometime back I had the same exact requirement, where I wanted to populated a bunch of fake data for testing out one of my C# dot net applications, not just a few amount, but in big chunks, a whole bunch of dummy emails, address, names and so on. I was actually going to write a bunch of scripts to populate those data by myself, but I got lucky 😉

Behold…

Yes lucky enough I came across this awesome tiny library called Faker.NET Portable Edition ! 😀 So I thought of sharing about it and give it a shout out as it’s a truly great library for easily populating dummy data sets.

capture17

And you can check it out on nuget right here –
https://www.nuget.org/packages/Faker.Net.Portable

Faker.Net.Portable

This is by far one of the easiest and lightest libraries I have used for populating dummy data. This is actually based on the Ruby Faker gem (http://faker.rubyforge.org/) library according to their documentation. It fully supports the below versions of dot net, thereby goes on saying yes you could obviously use this for your Xamarin Forms projects just like I used to.

  • .NET framework 4.0,
  • Silverlight 5.0,
  • Windows 8,
  • Windows Phone 8.1,
  • Windows Phone Silverlight 8,
  • Xamarin.Android,
  • Xamarin.iOS,
  • Xamarin.iOS (Classic),
  • Mono 3.2.8

It’s very much lightweight as well so it wouldn’t be any burden for your application’s compilation size and also it’s pretty fast. 😉

You could check out their documentation and github repo right here –
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable

capture19

And trust me it’s super easy to implement, simply add it from nuget or through DLLs to your project and start calling the methods right away… 😀 Some of its awesome uses are as follows,

Names – Create dummy names, not just names with random letters but actual real-human-readable names. You could even separate First Names, Last Names, Middles Names and so on.
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#names

Address– Yep, same goes for addresses as well, streets, cities, states, Zip codes, and even Latitudes and Longitudes… 🙂
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#addresses

Phone numbers – Not just some random numbers, but actual real-like phone numbers with actual area codes and so on.
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#phone-numbers

Company – Let’s you create Company names, Suffixes, Logos (yep with actual images), even fake motos with real words…
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#company

Avatar – Yes that is right actual dummy images, with defined sizes, and image formats of your choice… 😉 A very useful option for displaying profiles, contact lists and so on.
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#avatar

Business – Need to populate Business related data ? Credit card numbers ? expire dates ? You got it !
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#business

Internet – Let’s you easily populate almost all the internet related data such as, domain names, emails, MAC addresses, IPV4 IPV6 Addresses…
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#internet

Lorem Ipsum – Oh yeah, you are going to love this, no need to worry about populating large paragraphs with random words, you could do it very much easily with this library
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#lorem-ipsum

App – Need any dummy App Names ? Authors ? Version numbers to be generated ? Oh well not worry… A simple one method call away!
https://github.com/AdmiringWorm/Faker.NET.Portable#lorem-ipsum

So that’s it fellas, and I wanted to show you some insight to it from the VS Object Browser, and see how impressive it is from down below… 🙂

capture18

Almost all the types of dummy data you need to populate, right here, and not just random ones that doesn’t make any sense, but absolutely real-like dummy content for your applications.. 😀

I felt like this library hasn’t gotten enough coverage, therefore I thought of writing a small blog post giving credits for this and the developers of it. And most of all let this heard for the fellow developers out there, for I hope I may have saved your burden of populating dummy data for your awesome applications… 😉

Cheers folks ! Stay Awesome ! 😀

Call Asynchronous Methods and return Results within ASP Web API

So the other day my boss asked me to implement a few Azure Push Notifications related Web methods in one of our ASP Web API projects I had developed. Those Web methods were suppose to send Push Notification messages to the Azure Notification Hub, where as those notifications will be delivered to the User’s mobile devices.

When I started implementing I realized when calling the Azure Notification Hub using the Windows Azure Library, I realized there’s only Asynchronous calls available to communicate with the Notification Hub. It got me thinking, How on earth am I gonna call Asynchronous methods inside the ASP Web API (as I haven’t tried that before). Well, after a little bit of playing around I figured it out thanks to some documentations in ASP.NET website.

So here I am sharing the code I used for you all, if you ever come across such an implementation, how to call an Asynchronous methods inside the ASP Web API.

namespace YourNameSpace.Controllers
{
    [RoutePrefix("api/AsyncTest")]
    public class AsyncTestController : ApiController
    {
        [Route("AsyncWebMethod/{whateverValue}", Name = "DoSomeAsyncProcessingAndReturnResult")]
        [HttpPost]
        public async Task<HttpResponseMessage> DoSomeAsyncProcessingAndReturnResult(string whateverValue)
        {
            string Result = await WhateverAsyncMethodCallYouWantToCallInsideWebAPI(whateverValue);

            return Request.CreateResponse(HttpStatusCode.OK, Result);
        }
    }
}

 

Have fun Coding fellas ! 😀

WARNING – Beware ! Your Mind would be blown !

One day I was laying on my bed thinking about all the places that I have visited so far in my entire life, but unfortunately I couldn’t remember half of it and even the time periods… 😦 But suddenly, it hit me Oh yes ! I have been putting Facebook Check-ins for most of those places I have visited so far. Then at the same I was thinking, but its not possible to view all the places I have visited and put up Facebook check-ins, right from my profile ! 😦  There isn’t any way in Facebook to check all the check-ins you have put up, but you can do that by manually going through your Timeline, which would take hours to do so.

And that got me thinking, I’m sure there must be loads of people out there who would be worrying about the same thing I’m thinking right now, and I thought of coming up with a solution for this. Then BOOM ! as an innovative Software Engineer I thought of developing an application… 😉

So this is an Awesome concept I came up with, being able to view all your past check-ins on Facebook and when I kept on working on it, I saw these pretty interesting statistical connection between those places that I have visited and checked-ins. When I viewed all my past check-ins there were some amazing connections and information that were building around it. So I gathered around all those statistical information connections that I found out and blended them together by developing my own algorithms to populate those information. I have been working on it for about couple of weeks and finally its time to release it after testing it out with few of my friends. 😉

I Was There Map, allows you to view all the places you have visited and your Facebook Check-ins. You can view all the amazing information statistics you have never known about those places and your check-ins. You will be shown all the interesting information about You and those check-ins like no other.

  • View the most Popular Top places among the places you have visited so far
  • View Amazing information about You and the places you have been
  • View Interesting connections between You and your Facebook check-ins
  • See the places you have been to, clustered different facts

I Was There Map, is a revolutionary Facebook based web application which allows you to view all the places you have visited and your Facebook Check-ins. You can view all the amazing information statistics you have never known about those places and your check-ins. You will be shown all the interesting information about You and those check-ins like no other.

It is a project that is being founded and developed by me, few months back, but the project got halted for another few months due to some financial difficulties, anyways I somehow managed to finish it off. So I thought of sharing the actual back story behind this whole Project.

One day I was laying on my bed thinking about all the places that I have visited so far in my entire life, but unfortunately I couldn’t remember half of it and even the time periods… 😦 But suddenly, it hit me Oh yes ! I have been putting Facebook Check-ins for most of those places I have visited so far.

So folks,

WAIT FOR IT… 

😉

 

 

Coming Soon… And it is gonna blow your Mind… I Was There Map !

This is what happens to people like us when we are bored.. -_- specifically for me, I was dead bored at home waiting till my big corporate job started right after finishing my degree ! 😛 Therefore just to kill the boredom I thought of, wouldn’t it be cool if there was a way to see all the places that i have checked in so far on facebook ! Of course you can on facebook, but its  a little complicated and not that interactive in my own perception. More over there is no proper way of viewing them according to different needs, just a one static way of viewing them in a bing map. Thats why I thought of coming up with a pretty fun web application.

Anyhow here its is,

I Was There Map
– View all the Places You have been to and Amazing Tidbits……
