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.

    That is the nature of pre release builds. You never know what happens.

    But good that we have developers who test them .

          Send an email to Selwyn - if you don't have the email use the bug fix process in help - that gets attention very quickly. I think you will find then very accommodating as the Google thing is a REAL BIG issue.

            Not the case here. No issues with Live Preview or Working Preview under 3711-4690. Is this something you reported and had confirmed?

                Well - I did report it an did not get a response, so I suppose you either get the problem or you don't - I do.
                Cheers. I've rolled back.

                  i am not able to duplicate the error and there are no other reports from anyone else.


                  i can't duplicate any problem

                  the a5dialogHelper_arguments_to_stateObject() function was modified last week, but it appears to be correct to me.

                  here is a test you can run at the interactive window


                  Code:
                  dim args as sql::arguments 
                  args.add("FirstName","fred")
                  args.add("LastName","smith")
                  dim tmpl.arguments[2] as p
                  tmpl.arguments[1].name = "FirstName"
                  tmpl.arguments[2].name = "LastName"
                  
                  txt = a5dialoghelper_arguments_to_stateObject(args,tmpl)
                  
                  showvar(txt)
                  
                  you should get this:
                  {dialog.object}.setStateInfo({ 	__args_C_FirstName: 'fred', 	__args_C_LastName: 'smith' })

                  if you get the error, then it would appear that something went wrong with your install and you should reboot and reinstall the latest pre-release.

                    Many thanks to you guys for looking into this, i'll re-install and run the test and come back to everyone.
                    It may be an idea to set up a section on the message board for pre-release users to provide feed back without alarming official release users.

                      OK - here is the video of the tests and the issue - only takes a few minutes, starts with the problem, the test, then previous build and them a clean install of the 4690.

                        thanks for sending the component. turns out that the 'bug' is actually on your side. your component defined several arguments and you have a duplicate argument name in your arguments definition.

                        not sure how you managed to do this as the define arguments dialog checks for duplicate names.

                        regardless, if you fix your component and remove the duplicate argument definition, it will work.

                          Well Selwyn came back to me - it was my bad that was revealed by a recent change to AA.
                          This from Selwyn.

                          thanks

                          i can duplicate the problem, but the issue actually lies on your side.

                          if you look at your argument definition, you have a defined InclusingClassID twice.

                          before we made a change to to the a5dialoghelper_arguments_to_stateObject() this would not have mattered.
                          but we made a change to this function to address another issue and not you are getting caught by what was previously a benign bug on your part.

                          if you remove the duplicate definition your List will work.

                          I have changed the code so that it is impervious to duplicate argument names.
