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.

  • changing an image via code

    Hi all,
    I have placed an image in a UX control and want to on a given condition, swap the image to something else. All the images are uploaded to the project folder hence just need to code the change to another of the images.

    background.
    I need to place two icon images in same spot. The video number five in the series for FP11_DLG_ADVTAB talks of adjusting the 'horizontal spacer' to zero inches for the first positioned image which will be replace by new image in a 'toggle' type setup.
    Have arranged the two (stop image/ start image) side by side, tried all permutations of 0in, .5in, actual image width (13px) to no avail. Anyone done this?
    Please find attached file for this. toggle_image.zip

    The background was an initial try and yet to be figured out and thought maybe a swap might be simpler to implement.

    This is easier to do than that.

    Have a look at this video, I know it is not an answer to your question but it shows a lot of images on a UX. Just look at the begining. First 60 seconds
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyJZ9q_Xeho

    Make the images dynamic then you have the ability to conditional show them.
    They will be in the same place.

    I am travelling but if you need an example let me know and I will send you help tomorrow.

      Michael,
      Found that javascript is straight forward to change the images with "this.src="newimage.png"", but just realized that the implementation that uses show/hide expression is preferable since on a learning path and believe will be making use of that eventually in many places. Hence it does work, it is only a visual thing since on hiding the "ON" image means the "OFF" image is nudged slightly to the right. When you have time, please check it for me
      That application looks intense.....

        OK will look, there is a check box to do with Float try that and then by 05-06 UTC I will try to send answer.
        Also as a bodge you can change the CSS set position relative to -4px I think. Just play with the offset.

          Thanks Michael,
          Used following setting and works fine

          border-style: solid;
          border-width: 1px;
          position: relative;
          left: -8px;
