Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

  • Can't load multiple googles charts on page layout or embedded in ux

    I have 6 UX's each with 1 google chart defined. Each UX displays the google chart fine.

    I want to dashboard the google charts so thought I'd put them on a Page Layout component but none of them will load, even if only one UX is added.

    I also tried putting them onto a single UX as embedded components but get "Unable to get property 'load' of undefined or null reference" if more than one UX (with chart) is embedded.

    It's got me stumped.

    Can you post a sample component for review?

      I just tried this... and just adding in the UX as a component doesn't complete the Page Layout setup. I found the same... that the chart was not displaying. However, the chart is actually there.

      In the Page Layout Component Properties... set a Window height and Window width... and now your UX will show through... the Window.

        It looks like something is a bit of a mess.

        With 1 UX and 1 Chart... the chart was rendered but would not display.
        I added in a Page Layout Component Width and Height... the chart displayed.
        I added a 2nd UX with 1 Chart. Only one chart would display.
        I removed the 2nd UX... removed the Width and Height settings... and the chart displayed. So... something's a mess.

        I then added a 2nd Chart to a UX... still no Width and Height set... and both charts display. So... there you go.

        I feel all the charts would be better in 1 UX anyway... since you'd need to ensure the Google Chart libraries are loading for each UX. And you don't really want them loading... or even attempting to load... more than once.

        Also... just to ensure stuff is properly set up... your UX does have it's property "Google visualization libraries" set up... right?
        And... my chart code is in a function... and that function is being called in the Client-side Event afterGoogleVisualization.

        So, nothing gets run until the libs are loaded.

          Thanks David, something definitely isn't right that's for sure.

          My charts have been created exactly as per Selwyn's sample videos, Google visualization libraries loaded etc.

          As a workaround, I managed to get all 6 charts rendered in a UX by using IFrames. Each UX was saved as a page and each IFrame URL pointed to the respective page.

            Yikes... I didn't have to go to those lengths... here's my UX and PageLayout components. Be interesting to find out if they run for you.

              Thanks David,

              I added those components to a new project and the pagelayout renders as it should. However I thought I'd try something... I duplicated the UX and added that to the pagelayout so there are now 2 UX components on it... and it won't render.AAcharts.PNG

              I wonder if the same happens for you?

              The other difference between your sample and my original issue is that I'm retrieving the data from a database as per Selwyn's videos. Again each UX works fine, I just can't get them to work together on a pagelayout or as embeeded components on another UX.

              P.S. I'd zip it up for you but it would mean cleaning out the database as it contains confidential patient data.

                Results are all over the map. No errors... but sometimes the second chart of the 1st UX is displayed... sometimes not... although it is rendered.

                I think the Page Layout Component is just old and out of date... not really compatible with the rest of Alpha.

                The database data shouldn't really matter... although then it's a matter of refreshing the charts when data is passed from the callback... it would become a matter of timing.

                You should report this to Alpha.

                  Are you sending the result of the Google Chart to it's own div. I push the data in to the chart from a list, into it's own div, and have no issues.

                    Re: Can't load multiple googles charts on page layout or embedded in ux

                    I believe this might be related to the property Google Visualization Libraries where you declare the libray (corechart table etc) When I first built a dashboard using a page layout I have multiple charts in separate ux components and it worked perfectly. After an AA version update it stopped working as the process changed so that once the library for the first ux component was loaded the page layout stopped looking for any other libraries declared in the other ux components. From memory Selwyn suggested loading all needed libraries in each component.
