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.

  • Save list data with 'parent' in UX

    Hi
    In my scenario (similar to the Order with Order Details) , i have a UX with some fields for the "Order" part and a list control for the "Order Details" part. All based on mySQL.
    I would like to update the Orders and OrderDetails tables respectively in the Ux AfterDialogValidate event, in the "Save Submitted Data to tables" action.

    How can i do that?

    Thanks
    Jaime

    Re: Save list data with 'parent' in UX

    Your Orders table is data-bound with the UX, and your Order Details table is data-bound in a List control.

    Your Order Details List operates independently of the UX data-binding. Changes to the Order Details section are handled within the List with List update and synchronize methods.

    Then you'd submit the UX with the afterDialogValidate event taking care of the Orders section.. since Orders is UX data-bound.

      I know, hence my post. I do not want the customer to save the list independently of the ux, i just want the Submit and Reset for the ux to take care of everything.
      Is there a javascript function that can save the list data? So in my submit button onclick() i could have something like

      {dialog.object}.SaveMyListData();
      {dialog.object}.submit();

      Thanks for jumping in

        For the list...

        Code:
        var lObj = {dialog.object}.getControl('LIST1');
        lObj.updateListFromUXControls();
        {dialog.object}.saveListEdits('LIST1',{rows: 'allRows'});

            What you can do for future reference is to go ahead and let ALPHA create the save button in the lists detail view area, then convert to text and copy the code. Afterwards you can delete the button once you've got the code. That method to get the right code already written correctly can be used in many places. For fun create an action via action JavaScript, convert it to text and look at the code behind it, VERY helpful stuff! The component methods often give you much insight as well.

              The List building process lets you automatically create the buttons required... when the List is created. In doing this, there is no converting to text... the JS code is just there in the button event.

                yeah, I was just saying that you can get the same code in that way from the button and add it like you did.
