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.

  • Add User Roles on the fly

    HI, Is there anyway to add User Roles in my program independently without adding any user first?

    I see this functions a5ws_add_group() but not sure how to go about it

    Re: Add User Roles on the fly

    Not sure how this would be of benefit. You'd still need to apply that new user role security to components, pages, etc. through the developer wouldn't you?

        Hi Mike

        It seems to me User Role need to be decided during develpment time and does not make sense to create on the fly ,Is my assumption correct.
        As i am thinking of letting the user to create user roles on their own, but not sure does is make sense or not in Alpha environment. I use to do that is .Net development environment.

          I believe you are correct. User roles are to be developed and implemented at design time (at least that is what my experience tells me).

              Re: Add User Roles on the fly

              I designed my app with 4 user roles; administrator, accounting, lead and mechanic. Now I need to add or rename one of the roles. If I make a change in the developers app, can I publish the security to the production server? I'm sure my users in the development environment are not the same as in production.

              Can I copy the security file from production to development, make my changes and then just copy the security files back to production? If so, do I need to copy all the security files?

                You should be able to use the Security Context object method Context.Security.CreateRole(NewRole) to do this.
