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 ALL rows in a list

    I have a list control in a UX. I want to have a button in my UX that when pressed selects all rows in the list. Anyone know the JS for this? ...thanks in advance.

    Re: Select ALL rows in a list

    Maybe you can make this work.

    Code:
    //Select all rows in a List (that has been configured to allows multiple selections)
    listObj.setValue({select: 'all'});

      Why do you want to, literally, select all the rows in the list?

        Yes, literally. Occasionally my list my have over 200 records and instead of my client having to click on each one to process it would be nice to just select all rows in the list.

          Understood... but I don't think you need to literally select all rows to get access to all rows. Set a pointer to your List control and you have access to all it's data... in at least a couple of different forms.

          Code:
          var lObj = {dialog.Object}.getControl('LIST1');
          There's a treasure of information to be found in this object...

          _data
          _rData
          _values

          just to name a few.

            Thank you David ....Say, just how does one go about finding object information like your examples above?? I don't see this documented in Alpha. Maybe I missed it.

              You need to examine the object under the Chrome or Firefox debugger. Firefox has a Firebug add-in which is excellent. Set up a simple UX with a List control and a button. The button's onClick or Click event will contain Javascript. The first line would be debugger; The next line would be as above... create a var and set it with the List obj. Run the UX in Firefox (for example), right click on an empty part of the screen and choose Inspect with Firebug. The inspector will open up and you can now click on the button. That will fire off the debugger and you'll see your code. You can step through the code and when the lObj is set you'll the objects in the right part of the inspector. You'll see lObj and will able to expand it to see it's properties.
