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.

    Multiple programmers working on same project.

    Multiple programmers working on same project is a problem for us. Does anyone know of a software solution that will hold our Alpha project and allow programmers from different areas to be able to work on a file and then save back to the remote hosting server? We have tried several syncing software programs but they are too slow. It would have to lock the file so no one else can work on it at the same time also.

    Thanks.

    Hi Reed, I would be very interested in seeing what replies come in as this is something we have been pondering for a while. would you mind listing the syncing programs that you have tried and the issues with each?

      We have a similar problem hindered by 2 developers using the pre-release.

        I tried several by just Googling them. Also most of these on this site. http://www.toptenreviews.com/softwar...sync-software/

            I would be interested in anybody's experience working with more than a single developer on a project, version control etc.
            What worked, what didn't?

            What about a developers license? I think we can install on two machines right? I am considering giving up a percentage of ownership to an established industry leader to help carry on my application into the future beyond me with another developer able to take over in the event of my demise (things happen, heck I feel like I am getting lewy bodys disease sometimes) anyways, couldn't I give him my license number so he can learn Alpha and keep the application going (my subscription as well) into the future. Creating a business application wherein other businesses depend on mine, I want to ground it solidly.

              We are trying DropBox for business and so far it seems to be working for us.

                I have been looking at github. It seems to have the potential BUT needs to be set up carefully. If you have someone working on a specific area/module they can do so without affecting the main code and it can be integrated when finished/approved. Still working through the nuances to see if it really will work.

                  In general spoking so A5 cando it still lacks version control tools while moveing to the enterprise and teamworks even so simple as SVC, but perhaps the will lauch a tool like gibhub in the future, the point with dropbox is a backup tool no more but has no branches.

                    if that is working for u then use it, other tools like github and svc are asking more in depth, but the point i makeing to say why are there such tools for team right of of the box, i don't have the answer.

                          Both UX and Grids can be saved as Formatted JSON in the web project, which is clear text. The components are published as binary. Any code in a workspace can be converted from a library to a filesystem dictionary, which saves all code in individual files that are also clear text.

                              You can use the same developer license on two different machines but only one instance can be running at a time.
