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.

  • favicon in tabbedui

    In a tabbedui there is a property

    User defined "head" content

    where I have put:

    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="" type="image/x-icon" />

    but when I look at the published page there is no reference to favicon in the head section. In Chrome I did get my favicon but in Edge I get the Alpha icon.

    So I am doing something wrong. Any ideas?

      Re: favicon in tabbedui

      For me, in Build 5581 the "User Defined Head Content" seems to work properly. The property value from the tabbedUI does gets written to the associated .a5w file for the tabbedUI component when I save the tabbedUI component in my project. (Confirmed by opening the separate a5w page in the builder and going to the Source tab.) When I Publish All, I also see that property stuff get placed into the a5w page on the local web root. Maybe you need to delete the published a5w pages and component files and republish ALL. Sometimes, I don't trust the checkbox that says "Publish new or modified files only" to actually publish everything when the checkbox is off. I'm assuming you are using integrated login feature of the TabbedUI. I'm using a separate login page, so I cannot duplicate exactly what you have, if you are using integrated login.

      I didn't have the favicon stuff in my tabbedUI, until you made your post and I realized I need to place favicon stuff in all my a5w pages that the user goes through to bring up the tabbedUI. As I have it now, I think I have seen the favicon icon revert back to Alpha's icon while going through the extra a5w login pages.


      The favicon stuff in the head section might be a bit more complicated than the two lines you have. This is what I came up with that I put directly in the a5w page used for login:

      <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="apple-touch-icon.png?v=vMdGql3b31">
      <link id="favicon" rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico?v=vMdGql3b31">
      <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="favicon-32x32.png?v=vMdGql3b31">
      <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="favicon-16x16.png?v=vMdGql3b31">
      <link rel="mask-icon" href="/safari-pinned-tab.svg?v=vMdGql3b31" color="#5bbad5">
      <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico?vMdGql3b31" />
      <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico?v=vMdGql3b31">
      Notice the "v=vMdGql3b31" that is on each line. If I ever change my favicon, I have to remember to go in and replace the random characters on the right-side of the equal sign. This tricks browsers into discarding their cached favicon and requesting a fresh copy of it.
