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.

          Re: List builder xbasic custom data source using http_get

          Juan - I think the format of the function output is probably at issue.

          Do this - create a new List object. Specify the Data Source Type as Custom. Then, in the properties, Custom / Xbasic Function name, click the builder. Put in a dummy Xbasic function name for now, then click both of the help hyperlinks "More info about the Xbasic function" and "Sample Xbasic function."

          I think what you find here, comparing it to what you're producing, will help you with the answer.

            Re: List builder xbasic custom data source using http_get

            my xbasic function returns straight Json data(per the images above you can see it is a very simple xbasic function), the list object custom data source is supposed to accept a Json data as basis for the list but it does not work, have tried every combination foreseeable to me just now created a new UX component, copied the function to it and tried it with and without incoming parameters, every combinations gave a different error.
