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.

  • List Controls Not Working After Updating Alpha Software Version

    I have been without software updates for a while with Alpha. I just got back on the subscription and updated to one of the latest versions. Now, a lot of the List Controls that were working are not. In my List Controls I am filtering on a argument value that gets set when a user logs in. When I take that argument out of the SQL in the List Control and hard code the argument value, the List Control works fine. It seems after updating the software something has happen where the List Control is not showing the List based on the argument value that is set. I also have a textbox that gets set that same argument value when the user logs in, it is getting the correct argument value, so I know the argument value is getting set correctly. Any ideas here?

    The latest official update broke paginated list controls. Alpha has fixed it, but, only with a prerelease unworthy for production. There we also bugs with IE/edge browsers that were fixed...but in a prerelease.

    What version did you upgrade to?

      I upgraded to the November 8th version but that was causing my List Controls to throw an error, so I went back to 12.4.5.4.5 Build 5221 and am seeing what I just described above.

        Have you tried recalculating your UX? Is there an error in the browser's console when the list loads?

          What do you mean by recalculating? I don’t see any error.

            Open the component in your developer. Click on the "Menu" button (beside the Mobile checkbox). Select recalculate all controls. Then give it another shot.

                What I have found to be the problem with arguments in a circumstance like yours is that there is a javascript syntax error somewhere.

                  Re: List Controls Not Working After Updating Alpha Software Version

                  You've not mentioned which version you came from when moving to 5447. Now you've moved to 5221.
                  You've not mentioned what database you're using.
                  Is this a web app or a PGB app?
                  Is the argument set up as a session variable, a UX control... or something else.
                  You've not reported seeing, or not seeing, Javascript errors in the console.

                  You'll need to post a UX that is giving you problems along with a sample table. Don't worry about security tables... as local tables can be used.

                  I see no issues, generally, with Lists under 5221 or 5447, other than a Multi-Tenant setup based on a character TenantId... but you're not using that feature.

                  If you've upgraded from a version that was years old I wouldn't be surprised something didn't work.

                  More information is required.

                    Yes I moved from 12.4.4.5 Build 4491 to 5221, so Build 4491 was back from mid 2016. I wondered before I upgraded should I pick a few earlier versions to upgrade first and making sure everything worked before moving to the latest version. It is a PGB app. It is passing a state variable to an embedded UX, the child UX uses that state variable value to set an argument which the List Controls that are broke uses to filter on. Does this give more useful information? I would have to trim down the UX and database to be able to post it here. Let me know if this is necessary. I basically have a system down issue right now so I am in a hurry to get this fixed!

                      I don't think you can use a State Variable as an argument for a List Control. There must be another step going on.

                        The state variable gets set in the login UX and then the value of that variable sets a text box control with its value. Then a argument is set at runtime with the value in text box control. I think I am describing it more accurately now.

                          You also report that you're passing a state variable to an embedded UX. How are you passing that state variable?

                            It just sets the text box control to the value of the state variable. The text box is in the child UX and the state variable is getting set in parent (login component), hence it passes per se. I don’t think the state variable is the problem because it is getting set to the correct value. I think it is something with the argument getting set and the list control using that argument to filter

                              It sounds like when you load the embedded object you are "leaving" the textbox with the value behind in a sense. This might be a good use case for a session variable, even though it is a PGB. Try setting the filter of the list to a session var - and set the session var in the parent object. That should work.
