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.

  • List OnClick Open Containter


    I've looked at the templates that are found when you start creating a UX and found that you can open a panel on click based on a static action:

    //get the value of the 'Action' field in the current selected row
    var action = this.selectionData[0].Action;
    //alert('user selected action: ' + action);


    At the moment this is opening a panel card, is their anyway that a container window can be opened in stead?

    I've tried {dialog.object}.showContainerWindow(action), but this does not work as I believe the element needs to be fixed/static rather than a variable?

    Put your panel in a container with the sub-type set to window. On the event you want it to open from, use action javascript to open the container. It gives you a drop down list showing all available containers that are of the window sub-type. Not sure if the panel part will work from in the container, you may need to move your fields to the container.

      Keith, did you successfully put a pancelcard into a window container? I thought it was odd, but tried it and it results in a Layout Error for me. Can you list the steps for doing this?

      Ollie, you can do what you'd like... the only difference is that you want to open a window container instead of a panelcard. The Action comes from your List Control where Action is the Field name. So the same logic applies. For a panelcard... you need to have a panelcard for each of the named Actions. Instead of a panelcard, you'd have multiple Window Containers with names that match the Actions. Remember to place all your Window Container at the end of the UX... after the PanelNavigator (or PanelLayout) End tag.

        I did not try with a panel card. I didn't think that it would work due to the difference with how you make panels active and opening a window. Doesn't seem to be any reason to put a panel card in a pop up window anyway. If it goes that far you might as well create another UX and call that instead.

          Oh... ok... thanks... I thought you'd tried it and it was working.
