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.

    Hi Jamie,

    Good question. I ended up creating a search button and removing the word 'Search' from the Search Label Property.

    Hope this helps

      If I understood correctly

      In Search Properties set the toolbar position to None then in the Freeform Edit Region - Below Search Part place two action buttons to perform the Clear Search and Search actions.

      The attached shows both the standard toolbar and the action buttons for comparison

        Yes, That should do it. You could leave the toolbar if you want to use it as a spacer and then just remove the word 'Search'. You'll end up with a small line, looks like 2 hyphens, but it's not very noticeable. You made your's look like the standard toolbar v s 2 buttons. How did you do that?

          In the Below Search Part edit region I put the following to place the buttons and get the style

          Code:
          <table class="MobBlueGridFooter" width="600px;">
          	<td>{ActionButton:CLEARSEARCH}&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp{ActionButton:SEARCH}</td>
          </table>
          The property for the Clear Search Criteria button was set to hyperlink

          Then each button has the relevant javascript action for search and clear search

            Outstanding, This is a much nicer look, It looks very natural, much better than a couple of buttons.

                  Re: How do i move 'search' button in grid search part to the left?

                  I had a similar need, but slightly modified from this thread. I wanted my Clear Search and Search Button exactly where they normally are, in the first box under the search criteria.

                  I added this to the Freeform Edit Region "Below Search part":

                  <div style="position:relative;bottom:26px;left:10px">{ActionButton:CLEARSEARCH}&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp{ActionButton:SEARCH}</div>

                  And added this to my local CSS definitions to ensure the height was adequate for my button (your class name will be different depending on what style sheet you are using):

                  .GrBlueGridFooter{height:22px}

                  And I added the Search and ClearSearch Action buttons as described in this thread.

                  Result (image):
