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.

  • Script Error: 'GRID1_GridObj' is undefined

    I'm trying to put together an action button which sets some field values on my Grid, but it seems like any reference to the Grid component using a placeholder results in this object undefined error, which seems to be suggesting that the Grid doesn't exist

    When I switch to Preview mode I get the following errors -

    I'm working off've an updatable Grid component with the Form layout which is used exclusively for submitting new records.

    The in-line Javascript on my ActionButton looks like this -
    rowNum = {Grid.RowNumber};
    The same error will display even if I just use the first line "rowNum = {Grid.RowNumber};"

    Am I missing something, perhaps specific to this type of Grid? I have other grids that use different layouts which have absolutely no problem referencing the Grid component.

    instead of
    rowNum = {Grid.RowNumber};
    would you try
    var rowNum = (Grid.object}._selectedRow;

      Using ._selectedRow to grab the row number seems to be working fine. Weird that {Grid.RowNumber} didn't do the trick.

      Some of the setValue() calls are still producing the error but that'll be down to my bad implementation :P I'll start working on those now.

      Thanks for the quick fix!

        {Grid.RowNumber} cannot be used in a global js function or client side event. The help text clearly indicates this. I'd be curious to see if the errors also produce in Live Preview ?

        Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand

          You rarely see "help text" and "clearly" in the same sentence; but it is there in the event help.

          Confusing because {Grid.RowNumber} is good for anything associated directly with the row (e.g., a button or other controls) but not for the client-side events.
