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.

  • How to open new tab in tabbed ui

    Using a tabbed UI. Using three ux's: SearchUX, NameUX and AdmissionUX. Search UX has a list control with names. NameUX has basic name information and has a list control of related admissions. AdmissionUX has the admission information. When on the SearchUX, for every name I click, the name opens in a new tab using NameUX and I have the persons name appear in the tab pane. From the NameUX, if I click on an admission, the AdmissionUX opens in new tab with date on the record and the persons name in the tab pane.

    If a tab is opened with a name, go back to SearchUX and click on a new name, a new tab opens, now I have two tabs, each with a different name. Good.
    From the NameUX, I click on an admission, a new tab opens with the admission. If I leave this admission tab open, return to the name and click a different admission, I am returned to the previously used tab, the tab pane updates, but the record information shows from the previously selected admission. I want the admission to open in a new tab, not re-use the previous one.

    If I have PersonA and PersonB open, each on their own tab, then open PersonAadmission on another tab, if I open PersonBadmission, it will appear on it's own tab, not re-using the AdmissionUX tab from PersonA.

    From what I can tell, my code is identical from SearchUX to NameUX, yet I get different behavior. Even from the NameUX, I get mixed results, ie new tabs for each admission but only for each name.
    How is it determined when to open a new tab or use an existing tab?

    NameUX....has a list control of related admissions
    I think this means the related admissions list is a child list and I think this may be related to your issue - but this is just a guess...
    If it is a child list of course your going to get the results of the selected parent, therefore I think its not the tab pane that's messing you up here.
    You would have to open up a NEW list not a child list to keep it open and seperate - I think, again just guessing.

    That's my stab at it - good luck!

      Re: How to open new tab in tabbed ui

      Since the Admissions List is built based on an argument sent from the Names list, then your thought process makes sense that it sees the admission list as a child record and then behaves the way it does.
      Now if there were just a way to tell it to open a new tab anyway or at least update the tab when used again.

      To get the tab to refresh, I have turned off "use cached component" and I have tried "Get Primary keys" function in the onDialogExecute event as suggested in another post, but still no refresh.
