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.

    Select which a5w page to run based if the user is logging in using a PC/iPad or iPhone

    I have tried a couple of different ways to do this.... At the moment in the Login.a5w page I set a session variable..
    dim session.Device as C = Request.UserAgent
    dim session.redirect as C
    if containsi(session.Device,"ipad") then
    session.redirect = "MainMenuMobile.a5w"
    else if containsi(session.Device,"iphone")
    session.redirect = "MainMenuMobile.a5w"
    session.redirect = "MainMenu.a5w"
    end if

    Then under 'Web Security' then 'Web Security Configuration' I set the 'After Login Event' to
    e.url = strtran(e.url,"MainMenu.a5w",session.redirect)

    MainMenu.a5w is the Redirect Page - Login value I have set..

    This does not seem to be working ..., or is there a simpler way to do it?

    Have a look at the AppLauncher Component, found within Web Components

      Hi Graeme,

      I may be a bit confused but why are using strtran in the Web Sec Config.

      What about something like this.
      1. In web sec config in the after login property redirect to you Login.a5w page (not e.url = strtran(e.url,"MainMenu.a5w",session.redirect just use Login.a5w)
      2. Don't use the sessions, I can't see why you need them plus its just extra work for WAS to keep track of them.

      It seems to me that all you really need to know after some one logs in is the device type (Request.UserAgent) after that check for the device type with
      either a series of if statements or a select statement and redirect accordingly.

          The one thing I have not been able to set up right is when someone is on a mobile device and requests a desktop be aware that users may do this.
