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.

  • Setting an argument value using JS function

    I'm trying to set the value of an argument using a javascript function. Doesn't appear to be working however. See screen shots below.

    Where did I error?

    Re: Setting an argument value using JS function

    Just a shot in the dark, but your code to be:

    Code:
    function getMRNum {
         var mrnum = {grid.Object}.getValue('G','MRNUM',1);
         getMRNum = mrnum; 
    }
    Instead of the "return" part. And yes, leave off the () for getMRNum on the above line.

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I just checked and that is how I had to do it in my functions.

      Thanks ...but something is still wrong. My button doesn't do anything.

      If I remove this:
      Code:
      (Javascript:getMRNum)
      from the argument value in the button definition the button works. Alpha's example shows it just like this so I'm at a loss.

      EDIT: I don't think it's your code ...button doesn't work with either my original JS function or yours.

        Re: Setting an argument value using JS function

        You did not define a function as you omitted the "()"

        So your function definition must be:

        function getMRNum() {
        var mrnum = {grid.Object}.getValue('G','MRNUM',1);
        return mrnum;
        }

        This function will always return the MRNUM value of row 1 from your grid but that is probably what you intend to do.

        Chris: you confused xbasic & javascript as far as the return statement goes

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

          Hmmm okay. I have that in my Javascript as I couldn't get the return to work several times... but I would certainly go with you as I don't know enough yet :) lol

          EDIT: Ah yes, I did forget the () in my example code above... I did mean to include those (that is what happens after playing with GRIDs for a while last night and fighting a cat to clip its nails) :) :)

            I changed the code back so it has a return now and added the (). The value still isn't coming over. In the UX that is opened I have it setup this way:

            Is that correct?

              Found my error .... it's working now. Thank you both.

              My argument find code was incorrect. I defined the wrong control. Should have been: e.control.MRNum=e.arguments.find("MRNum").data
