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 many lists do YOU have in your UX?

    Just for fun,
    I have a UX with 6 interconnected (meaning parent/child relationship) lists that works great! Whats the highest count of lists in a single UX that you actually made/use ???
    I would think you should have something good to say about it too, anyone could create a non working ux with a 1,000 lists, lol.

    So how many lists do you got in your UX?

    Re: How many lists do YOU have in your UX?

    The most I have in one UX is 6 lists. To be honest, I find it a little busy and I need to rethink it at some point. But yes, the list is a pretty interesting control.

          you are correct, this is very busy for me.
          if the same thing in a tabbed container and each one list occupying single tab, ( or in an accordion container )it is okay with me.
          I keep every page simple small may be some 20 - 30 lines, when I need to exceed that limit I do only in a related content that too in two columns.
          ps: I do not use lists. no knowledge of those.

            - Man - I just picked myself up off the floor - Really, I can have up to 20 lists pushing info into the next list as with most mobile apps you are just continually putting info in front of people as most mobile users are consumers and creators of data than they are editors of data - that leads them to more info.. so it goes on - I have started replacing lists with View Box components where the needs are simpler, as its about 25% the size of the list component, good stuff.

              Re: How many lists do YOU have in your UX?

              I have 18 lists in one of my uxes. Not all of them load at once. Some lists take a while to load 1 or 2 seconds. It took me a while to learn to like lists and I can't imagine not having them now. I guess I will have to learn to like View Boxes now, although I don't quite 'get' their usefulness... yet.

                Dang frank 18? That's a pretty serious ux!
                Pretty cool though. Nice to know someone is pushing it that far and its still functionally working, not that I didn't think it was possible its just I never knew ��

                  not knowing about list is because I don't have version 12. (if you have read my answer to your pm, you would know), not that I selectively avoid using list or view box or what so ever.
                  as long as a page is about 20-30 lines on the desktop, 6 10 lines on the mobile you can keep sending new page containing list many times, the user interaction will be good. too much information on a single page is not ideal as far as I am concerned.

                    Re: How many lists do YOU have in your UX?

                    The way I have my UX broken down into so many lists allows me to do many things all based on one thing - the TASK. I have the initial JOB_ID load in the parent list and then I can add all sorts of related info to the job using lists to store images, billable items, notes, etc all in different tables. Lists really are so much more awesome than I ever gave them credit for when I first started using Alpha. I used to create separate grids, and use repeating sections in other UX's whereas now I am so much more comfortable being able to use the lists and thanks to guys like Ghandi I learned to do SQL inserts when a list was unnecessary... I thought this would be a good topic to discuss - so the one question I have is - is it true that 20 is the limit?
                    I can't see a reason for a limit.

                      Re: How many lists do YOU have in your UX?

                      Actually it turns out that I have only 12 lists and 5 repeating sections all connected to one ux. They don't all load at the same time and I rarely use them all at the same time. They load in various tabs. So far no problems.

                        I thought having five lists on a technician dashboard was a lot. Good to know that other's are doing similar things.

                          I've re-organized my documents page since I posted in thread #4 above. It still has 6 lists on the page but I think it looks a little tidier now.

                              Stephen,
                              How do the buttons in the "Controls" and "Position" groups know which list to modify?
