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.

  • Display some field values in a tabbedui Header

    Hi
    Upon selecting a Patient in any UX or Grid, i would like to show the current selected patient name and some other fields like phone number in the tabbedui's header. How can i do that?
    Currently those values update different session variables ( one for the id, one for the name etc...)

    Many thanks
    Jaime

    Re: Display some field values in a tabbedui Header

    here is what I do...
    Put this in the Header text property

    <div id="header_detail" style="width:100%;bgcolor:#3a4048;border:solid 1px #3a4048;font-size:12pt;font-weight:bold;color:#fff;">
    <div id="header_title" style="float:left;width:15%;text-align:left;">
    Quote Tool
    </div>
    <div id="header_profile" style="float:left;width:30%;text-align:right;">
    Selected Profile is <%a5 ?SESSION.PROFILEID %> <%a5 ?SESSION.PROFILENAME %> in <%a5 ?SESSION.DISTRICT %>
    </div>
    <div id="header_date" style="float:left;width:15%;text-align:right;border-right: 1px solid white;color:#fff;">
    <%a5 ?date() %>&nbsp;&nbsp;
    </div>
    <div id="header_logout" style="float:right;width:15%;text-align:right;">
    <a href="logout.a5w" style="border: none; text-decoration:none; display: inline-block">
    <img style="vertical-align:middle;border:none;" src="images/stock_exit.png" >Logout</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;
    </div>
    <div id="header_user" style="text-align:left;">
    &nbsp;&nbsp;<%a5 ?SESSION.FULLNAME %>
    </div>
    </div>

    Then in the component where you select your patient:

    function SetSelectedProfile as C (e as p)
    SESSION.PROFILEID = convert_type(e.dataSubmitted.PROFILESEARCH,"C")
    SESSION.PROFILENAME = "Unknown"
    dim cnx as SQL::Connection
    dim crs as SQL::ResultSet
    if cnx.open("::Name::SS1-SAP")
    dim sql as C = "SELECT FORMALNAME, NICKNAME, DISTRICT FROM mqPROFILES WHERE PROFILEID = " + e.dataSubmitted.PROFILESEARCH
    if cnx.Execute(sql)
    crs = cnx.ResultSet
    SESSION.PROFILENAME = crs.data("FORMALNAME")
    SESSION.DISTRICT = crs.data("DISTRICT")
    SESSION.NICKNAME = crs.data("NICKNAME")
    if SESSION.PROFILENAME = "" .AND. len(SESSION.NICKNAME) > 1
    SESSION.PROFILENAME = SESSION.NICKNAME
    end if
    end if
    cnx.close()
    end if
    dim txt as C = "Selected Profile is " + SESSION.PROFILEID + " " + SESSION.PROFILENAME + " in " +SESSION.DISTRICT
    dim js as C = "parent.document.getElementById("header_profile").innerHTML = "" + js_escape(txt) + "";"
    SetSelectedProfile = js
    end function

      Thanks Pat, you make it look so easy :-)
      I think i can modify the line:
      Code:
      <div id="header_profile" style="float:left;width:30%;text-align:right;">
      Selected Profile is <%a5 ?SESSION.PROFILEID %> <%a5 ?SESSION.PROFILENAME %> in <%a5 ?SESSION.DISTRICT %>
      </div>
      by
      Code:
      <div id="header_profile" style="float:left;width:30%;text-align:right;">No patient selected</div>
      since SetSelectedProfile will build the innerHTML from scratch, isn't it?

        That's a good idea. Give it a try.

          Didn't work at first, because of the "color: #fff" ( that's white over white ) in your sample, but now it works.

          Do you have any idea how can i change now whatever is displayed to be an array, say in a dropdownbox?
          The idea behind it is that most of the time they work on a specific patient, then just one small action on another patient before coming back to the first one. So, if i save them in a dropdown, they can come back to the first one quickly.

            ...also do the SESSION variables need to be char type? Noticed you converted your ID

              Re: Display some field values in a tabbedui Header

              Yes session variables should be charcter type. They may work in some places as other types, but according to Alpha, at some time they will become character only, so you might as well set them up that way now as you go along.

                What I usually do is set the order of the (in your case patients) to be the most recent worked on. That way the ones they want to search for will often be on the page with no searching needed.

                  Thans Pat. My question was how can i put a control (dropdownbox or some other display mechanism ) in the "header_profile" div from your sample for instance

                    Re: Display some field values in a tabbedui Header

                    ouch. That hurts my brain. Maybe you could create a session variable of a state variable and a button on the page to do a return, not in the header. You need to do a save on the current patient anyway, (or lose the data) so that give you an opportunity to save the "last" patient.

                      LOL my brain hurts daily :-)
                      I'm thinking of ditching the tabbedui alltogether and use a UX with buttons and expanding menus, will give me a little more control.
