Not to keep the thread going for too long but the "display" issue is only on your side. The number is still internal to the phone company that you use for your phone(s). They would be able to trace the number(s) for you for a call on a particular date/time. Just give them the call that came in on particular date/time and they will block that number, even if you can't see the number on your phone.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I need to make some changes to web service I wrote two years ago as new business rules are added. Until now it was working OK as messages it was processing was small in size 10 to 50 lines max. Now with new rules message size can get to few thousand lines. Service was slow as dog it took almost 3 minutes to process 1000 line.Noticed there was a custom logging I wrote which was concatenating strings with variable+="New String". Changed it to StringBuilder and now responses are generated in 2 seconds. Users will be happy.

I do not as I target both browsers, as well as Chrome. If you develop and then functional test in just one browser, the other browser will most likely display things a bit differently. That is why I test in IE/Edge, FF, and Chrome and even some older IE versions.
ASP.Net is a little vague as there is MVC or Web Forms. HTML is generated in Web Forms, where there could be a difference. I hand code my HTML and CSS and don't rely on any GridView HeaderStyle, FooterStyle, BackColor, ForeColor, eceterra as I use the CSS equivalents and then call my styles.

Thank you! I find nothing more annoying than trying to use a website that only works on the Name of preferred browser browser because they don't like Name of hated browser. Especially when a customer has paid money for the use of the technology or service that is accessed through the webpage.
I get that some browsers don't play as nice as others. But nothing says we don't care about our customers then not taking the time or putting in the effort to assure that all their customers can fill in the forms and click the buy button regardless of the page designer's preference.
Is it the developer's fault that the company behind the worlds most hated browser constantly ignored standards as set by committees so that they could further their proprietary "take on things" in order to further their bottom line in making the internet their own?
The company behind the worlds most hated browser has caused so much hardship for web developers that the kilowatt hours used in electricity to make things work in that thing they call a browser has probably directly attributed to global warming.
Is it the developer's fault that the company behind the worlds most hated browser...
Yes. Or at least "Yes if he didn't test against it, knowing full well that it doesn't work the same". This is the real world: we have to accept that there are good, bad, and indifferent browsers out there and that users will use what they feel comfortable with. Our job is to make the user happy and productive, not to ignore the real world cases and do what is easy for us!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
Is it the developer's fault that the company behind the worlds most hated browser constantly ignored standards
No, it's not the fault of the website developer, but, I think there are too many examples of well designed sites out there that work in whatever browser I use to make that assessment. Code Project is a good example. There are others like Amazon, Google, Musicians Friend, Heck even Apple works well regardless of the browser I use.
Yes, I agree that it takes more time (expense) to do this. And I agree the M$ needs to improve IE or Edge or whatever they are calling it this week. The the hard fact is, there are many many people who don't use the "better" browsers. Aunt Mabel with her $125.00 laptop just wants to buy the Beanie Baby of the week, not bother with poorly designed websites, she'll go where she can spend her money. Without needing to bother with which browser she needs to use.
