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.

  • Help With Setting Value In Field Based On Checkbox State?

    I'm trying to set the value in a Label field to either:
    1. OPERATIONAL if the checkbox is unchecked
    2. NOT OPERATIONAL if the checkbox is checked

    I have this in the OnChange event of the checkbox but it is not working. It always returns 'NOT OPERATIONAL'.

    Code:
    var checked = {dialog.Object}.getValue('SERVICE_STATE');
    
    if (checked = 'true')
    	{dialog.object}.setValue('STATE','NOT OPERATIONAL');
    else if (checked = 'false')
    	{dialog.object}.setValue('STATE','OPERATIONAL');
    Simple component is attached if anyone has time to look.

                Same version as you. Is your checkbox set as logical?

                    if (checked){
                    	{dialog.object}.setValue('STATE','NOT OPERATIONAL');
                    }
                    else {
                    	{dialog.object}.setValue('STATE','OPERATIONAL');
                    }

                      Okay, I've got it. Where I was getting the value of Service_State, it should have been Machine_State.

                      How can I stare at this stuff for an hour and not see that! Sigh.

                      Thanks guys.

                          Hello, I am facing somehow the same problem.
                          I have a database in which there is an attribute called 'document', on the UX if the user checks the checkbox the document value should be set to 1, else it should remain 0.
                          In the checkbox settings I have set its default value to 0 and the type to logical, however this doesn't work for me.
                          If the document value is set to 1, it is changing it to 0, but the opposite doesn't work. When I press the save button it automatically unchecks...

                          Can anyone help please?

                            Is it code or set to update the database or both?

                              Set to update the database, I haven't added any code to it.
