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.

  • Using AT and ATC in <%A5 tag results in decimal return

    Hi,

    I have a very simple a5w page that I am testing. Here is the source:

    Code:
    <!doctype html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta name="generator" content="Alpha Anywhere HTML Editor Version 12 Build 3561-4652">
    <!-- must use in order to make XP Themes render -->
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="MSThemeCompatible" content="Yes" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> 
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />
    <meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes" />
    
    <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <%a5
    	? at("status", "Here is the status report listed:")
    %>
    
    </body></html>
    I get 13.000000 instead of just 13. Not sure why.... I am actually doing this to see if the word "status" is actually in the string. I attempted to use REGEX_MATCH and other ones, but cannot get it to return true if the word does exist in there.

    So, since it isn't returning as a whole number, it seems I cannot compare values properly.... and since regex isn't working for me (I have tried to so many that I don't even have examples left), I will ask you all ..

    Thanks!
    Chris

    I do not know what you want to achieve but
    ?str( at("status", "Here is the status report listed:"))
    should return 13 on display even though it is a character.
    you can check it with typeof

      Maybe

      ? contains("Here is the status report listed:","status")
      There can be only one.

        Re: Using AT and ATC in &lt;%A5 tag results in decimal return

        Sorry for my confusion.

        Goal is to check if a string exists inside of a longer string. I have tried the regex methods and AT and ATC. ATC works but is returning trailing decimal zeros when used in a5w page - works properly in an interactive window.

        I cannot figure out the correct REGEX expression to check for a string or strings in another string (mainly need true/false).

        So I would like assistance with either using REGEX (used the UI builder also but cannot figure out proper expression) or removing trailing decimal and zeros Kama so I can see if the result is greater than one or not.

        thanks a million!

          I can see if the result is greater than one or not.
          Code:
          <%a5
          DIM X AS N
          	X = at("status", "Here is the status report listed:")
          IF X >1 then
          	?"the string exists in the input string"
          else
          	?"the string is not present"
          end if
          %>
          it does compare well.
          thanks for reading

            (mainly need true/false).
            if that desired then check out stan's suggestion.

              I know I tried CONTAIN but it displayed an error and I quickly moved on to try others. As trivial as this is, its been difficult to get it working. I'll try again shortly when back at the computer.
