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.

  • Two list record counts on same page

    This is a bit of a newbie question: How can I adjust the List Record Count HTML so that it can appear twice on the same UX component page? The default method defines a span ID, which of course can only appear once. Any other attempts appear blank. I simply need a way to display the list record count as static text twice in the same page.

    Re: Two list record counts on same page

    Probably a lot of ways to do this... and the method may depend on what you're doing with the List... what affects the record count.
    Duplicate the List record count static text control and then change the id... e.g. dupCount.
    In the List afterRenderComplete event...

    var recCnt = $("{dialog.componentname}.LISTCUST.RECORDCOUNT").innerHTML;
    $("dupCount").innerHTML = recCnt;

      Re: Two list record counts on same page

      David, thank you so much for the really helpful response. This looks like a promising approach that makes sense, but unfortunately seems to return 0 instead of the correct record count. A few more details:

      - The list ("New_Tickets") is in its own panel card. I inserted the following code in its afterRenderComplete event.
      var recCnt = $("{dialog.componentname}.New_Tickets.RECORDCOUNT").innerHTML;
      $("NewTicketCount").innerHTML = recCnt;
      - The duplicated record count would appear in the panel header. The HTML reads
      <font size="4"><strong>New Tickets</strong></font> &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp <span id="NewTicketCount"></span> tickets
      - The original default record count HTML is inside a list ("Ticket_Menu_List") which is a flyout menu inside another panel card ("MENULEFT").
      <span id="{dialog.componentname}.New_Tickets.RECORDCOUNT"></span>
      Thank you again very much for your time and help.

        Is your New_Tickets List to Delay Render? The List afterRenderComplete isn't really what it says. This event runs even though Delay Render is set... and an error occurs for the Defined Control List-Record Count. It's not really Delay Render of the Control... it's more Delay Render of the data. The error occurs because there is no RECORDCOUNT to get.

        If you have Delay Render set, then you may want to re-think what's going on. You can't get a second record count to show if the first isn't set yet.

        If this isn't what is happening, then more detail from you is needed.

        You could use the List event onPopulate, but with Delay Render set you still get the RECORDCOUNT error. You can do away with the Defined Control altogether and just set 2 of your own record counts.
