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.

  • unable to update DIV code programatically

    I have a Alpha Free-form container on a panel, where I added the following HTML (free form Layout)

    <div id="my_div1" style="width:900px">
    <h3>This is a test</h3>
    <p>This is also a text</p>
    </div>

    It looked good.

    Now using a button and AJAX call to the server I would like to update the DIV my_div1 to the following
    <h3>Testing 123</h3> <p>also testing 123</p>

    So on the AJAX server code I used the following

    function serverside_41c20342cb5c4f0ab66a7884543g as c (e as p)
    e._setElement.MY_DIV1.value = "<h3>Testing 123</h3> <p>also testing 123</p>"
    end function

    But, the button code is not updating the panel with the html value. What am I doing wrong? Help.

    I know this works as javascript to return from your xbasic:
    Code:
    jvsToSendBack = "$('my_div1').innerHTML='<h3>Testing 123</h3> <p>also testing 123</p>';"
    I've never used what you are using (e._setElement) but I'll look into it.

      Yeah, I can't get that e._setElement to work either. I made a quick dialog and called my function UpdateDiv. In my function I put the below code in and did an ajax callback from a button. it worked fine:

      Code:
      function UpdateDiv as c (e as p)
      
      dim jvsToSendBack as c = "$('my_div1').innerHTML='<h3>Testing 123</h3> <p>also testing 123</p>';"
      
      UpdateDiv = jvsToSendBack
      
      end function

        Re: unable to update DIV code programatically

        Thanks AH it worked with JavaScript.
        I was using _setElement.DIV1 based on the Alpha documentation (when you create a AJAX call, you see a bunch of commented text/code that Alpha automatically added to the function before the end function - for our handy reference - it was mentioned there)

        'Note:
        'In addition to 'e._set', you can set properties of the 'e._setElement' object.
        'Examples:
        'e._setElement.DIV1.value = "Some text" --- sets the innerHTML of DIV with the id of 'DIV1'
        'e._setElement.SPN2.style.color = "Red" ---- sets style properties of a SPAN with id of 'SPN2'

        Thanks!

            Just speculating here. Does it work if you change your id from "my_div1" to "MY_DIV1"? JavaScript is case sensitive. I am wondering if the xbasic is expecting you to use all caps for your id's if you want to use the _setElement property....

              I tried it both ways in terms of capitalization and camelcase and I just couldn't get it to work at all with e._setElement.

              Could you give it a try with something simple Sarah and see if you can get it to work?

                Your div id must be all caps. This is the line returned from the AWS for _setElement:
                Code:
                $svs('MY_DIV1',('<h3>Testing 123</h3> <p>also testing 123</p>'));
                You can view the code generated by debugging in Live Preview (not Working Preview). Put a debug(1) statement in your xbasic code and then clicking the "step" button until you are in a place that looks a lot like this:

                analyzingAjaxResponse.png

                Look at x_out.A_AjaxResponses. One of these will contain JavaScript that was generated by your callback. In this particular example, it was the second entry in A_AjaxResponses.

                Or, you can look at the POST value returned in the browser using FireBug or some debugging tool.

                Ids are case sensitive, so there is no div with the id "MY_DIV1". If you change your div id from "my_div1" to "MY_DIV1", it works just fine.

                  I could have swore that I tried that as I know it's case sensitive but your component works fine for me so I must have missed it. Thanks Sarah.
