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.

  • Row label in-line style: Alignment not working in search part of grids

    To anyone who can help.

    I have several grids with search parts.
    I want to have the row labels in the search part align to the right (if it matters, they are positioned to the left of the search criteria)
    I am using the Style Editor, which comes up when you click the ... button at the right end of the "Row label in-line style" row of each search field's properties window
    I can't get the labels to align to the right like I want.
    Other attributes besides alignment (Bold, Italics, underline and etc...) do change in response to selections made in the Style Editor.
    Alignment of the search row labels, for some reason, always stays on the left regardless of the selection made for alignment in the Style Editor.

    Thanks for any help that can be offered.

    Kevin

    Not sure what effect this may have on the balance of your Grid... but...

    The problem is that the label is wrapped in a Table Cell tag... <td>. It's this <td> tag which must be right-justified... but I can't see any way to get at this tag in the grid properties.

    This tag, however, does have an Class... so we can get at it. The Class, for my grid, because I'm using the iOS7 style is iOS7GridRowHeader. So, your class may be different. It will be the style name + GridRowHeader

    In the Grid Properties, Local CSS Definitions, put this...

    Code:
    .iOS7GridRowHeader {
    	text-align:right;
    }
    Changing iOS7 for whatever style you're using. This will result in...

      David,
      Putting the suggested code in the Local CSS definitions property worked like a charm.

      Thank you very much

      I do see a potential problem though if one had a lot of grids to update like this and one changed styles there would be alot of work to do.

      Thanks again

      Kevin

        You can do this another way... but it's probably just as much work, if not more... and it's not quite a pretty regarding rendering... but it does work.

        In the Grid Client-side event, onSearchRender you can do this... per control...

        Code:
        $('{Grid.ComponentName}.SL.INVOICECUSTID').style.textAlign = "right";

          you probably are set in this problem, but i would like to point out that when the size of the screen changes the css will change the position and alignment will probably go out of order again.
          but alpha provides another method to accomplish what you like to do, especially when your search part literally includes all the possible variations.
          selwyn did an article where dialog is used to as search part where precise placement of the search variables can be placed along with videos to show how that is accomplished.
          if interested in that, please see this link and the videos at the bottom

            I'm not sure I understand why a text-align:right wouldn't work after a screen is resized. I've just tried it and it seems ok. You should try it... it's easy enough. Since the first method is adding to the GridRowHeader class then you're saying that a screen resize will then ignore that class? Or, as in the 2nd method, that a screen resize will somehow undo a direct style setting of an html element? I can't see how. But if that's what you're seeing I'd love to know and to have a further look.

            Using the UX component as a search facility for an embedded grid is another excellent tool and well worth focus here... but I don't understand your css theory.

              david discard my last post, i have misunderstood the conversation. kevin wants to have the LABEL for the row in the search part to align to the right. not the content the variables on the right side.. i am concentrating on the content never realized he wanted the ROW LABELS to align to the right.
              simplest way to do is where it says the name for the label the instead of just the name of the field you say
              <div style="text-align:right;">Name of the label</div>
              for example as his example where the label is "Project Year:" you write down
              <div style="text-align:right;">Project Year:</div>
              that should do it. no need to change any class anywhere.

                I had tried that with a <span> tag and found it didn't work. I always forget that some style settings don't work with <span>.

                Agreed... this is another nice solution.

                Code:
                <div style="text-align:right;">Project Year:</div>

                  I had tried that with a <span> tag and found it didn't work.
                  <span style="float:right;">Project ID</span>

                    Re: Row label in-line style: Alignment not working in search part of grids

                    I'm not sure what ?? means...

                    float:right; works for both a <span> or <div> tag
                    text-align:right; works only for a <div> tag

                    I've never really known why... just that there is a difference. So I finally looked it up...

                    A block-level element always starts on a new line and takes up the full width available (stretches out to the left and right as far as it can).

                    The <div> element is a block-level element.
                    An inline element does not start on a new line and only takes up as much width as necessary.

                    The <span> element is an inline element.

                      ?? means it works.
                      interpret anyway you like.
                      div starts and ends with a line feed making that a division (segment)in the dom.
                      so is span, a division, however span is smaller & finer than div, spans unto a single letter without any line feed making that a non blocking division. however float property is applied to that area of span or div, in this case the the name of the label, is already in a div so another div and a span works. but a freeform span may not work with float without a block - display block may be applied to do so. i have not had a reason to test this or time to do it.
                      in any case the question is answered and the original poster has few options available for him to pursue.
                      thanks for reading
