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.

  • Javascript timing issue

    The following code appears to be running too fast. The list doesn't always refresh.
    I can't seem to figure out how one slows down javascript code or if it's even possible.

    Thanks

    Code:
    A5.msgBox.show('Delete Labor Entry','<div style=\' padding: 10pt;\'>Delete This Labor Entry?</div>','yn',function(button) {
    if(button == 'yes'){
    	{dialog.object}.ajaxCallback('','','deleteMechEntry','','',{deviceOfflineFunction: function() {   }});
    	{dialog.object}.panelSetActive('PANELCARD_LIST',true);
    	
    	{dialog.object}.refreshListData('FIXENTRIES');
    	}
    });

    Re: Javascript timing issue

    You could experiment with setTimeout: http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_settimeout.asp

    Code:
    A5.msgBox.show('Delete Labor Entry','<div style=\' padding: 10pt;\'>Delete This Labor Entry?</div>','yn',function(button) {
    if(button == 'yes'){
    	{dialog.object}.ajaxCallback('','','deleteMechEntry','','',{deviceOfflineFunction: function() {   }});
    	
             setTimeout(function(){
                  {dialog.object}.panelSetActive('PANELCARD_LIST',true);
    	
    	      {dialog.object}.refreshListData('FIXENTRIES');
            }, 500);
    	}
    });
    You could also move the {dialog.object}.panelSetActive('PANELCARD_LIST',true); and {dialog.object}.refreshListData('FIXENTRIES'); into an action javacript and call the action JS at the end of your xbasic function using {dialog.object}.runAction('My_Action_Name');.

      Thanks Mike. The action JS didn't work for some reason. But the setTimeout worked well. However; I guess it could fail as it's only waiting for x amount of time vs. waiting for an action to complete.

        Re: Javascript timing issue

        I love setTimeout... it solves a lot of little issues. But... in this case you don't really know how long the Ajax Callback is going to take... and if your refresh depends on the callback doing it's work, then you may be in trouble if something out there gets busy. I feel you're better off putting your JS methods into a JS function. Then, return a call to that function from your Ajax Callback. This way you know for sure that your JS will run only after your callback is complete. There's also a client-side event which fires after the callback completes in which you can test for the type of callback and other stuff. In this case you don't really need that, but it's nice to know about.

          since I do not have version 12 this will, probably totally, be wrong, but curious as I am..
          can you break the calls in two different places. like
          call the ajaxCallback where you have it currently. then whatever needs to be done when that callback is finished put those functions in
          the afterAjaxCallbackComplete event on the clientside?
          that will not depend on the timing?

          ps: just noticed david also suggested that.
          thanks for reading

            Re: Javascript timing issue

            Thanks for the feedback. In this case I'm stuck working with a dbf table. The good thing about this is that I have to write my own enter code and put it in the afterDialogValidate event. I say good as I can use the xbasic_wait_for_idle() function and then fire an e.javascript command. Now timing is not an issue.

            Code:
            'debug(1)
            
            ''enter the new record
            dim t as p
            t = table.open("[PathAlias.ADB_Path]\wodesclabor_m_entry_mech1")
            t.enter_begin(.t.)
            t.name = w_upper(e.datasubmitted.name)
            t.site = upper(e.datasubmitted.site)
            t.initials = upper(e.datasubmitted.initials)
            t.pw = e.datasubmitted.pw
            t.enabled = e.datasubmitted.enabled
            t.admin = e.datasubmitted.admin
            t.user = e.datasubmitted.user
            t.enter_end(.t.)
            t.close()
            
            xbasic_wait_for_idle()
            
            e.javascript = "{dialog.object}.refreshListData('USERS')"

              Re: Javascript timing issue

              e.javascript is exactly the same as returning javascript commands from an Ajax Callback... same process. You're setting the property of an object which Alpha understands... and understands what to do with. Knowing you were working with DBF would have helped a bit. Although, an Ajax Callback would still be appropriate, I believe. Either way, you're just executing XBasic code and return javascript.
