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.

  • HTML help

    I am working in a Viewbox and trying to get a display to come out correctly. So I am asking for help from a HTML guru.
    I don't know how to make the HTML work in the Viewbox layout to accomplish 2 things.
    I don't want the Heading or titles to print above each row and I would the amounts right justified.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?


    This is my view box:

    Re: HTML help

    Hi Mike,
    Any reason you are deadset on a viewbox instead of using a list control? List control would display data in a list format as you are doing and lists have headers built in and may be best suited for your scenario.

    Now with that aside:
    The code you are showing is the template for each ITEM. So since you are adding the table rows and table header tags for each item - you will see the repeat. I do not think the concept 'viewbox header' and 'viewbox footer' properties exist. If they did your opening table and tr/th would go into the table header. and your table closing tag would go into the footer. I dont believe they exist which is why i suggested you use a list.

    for the alignment - if you end up sticking with a viewbox and still need to do this:
    use css to right align text for the appropriate table data tag
    <tr><td>left aligned text</td><td style="text-align:right;">5.55</td></tr>

      Re: HTML help

      It seems there is a header and footer command if you use the "Insert" button at the bottom when defining your viewbox layout.

      Not sure how to use these, but you could leverage these

        Thank You Scott!
        I appreciate the help. I am not tied to a viewbox, so I'll try the header and footer items first. If that doesn't work, then off the list control.

        Thanks again,

          What you are trying to do is super easy, I think you should persevere with the viewbox because it is light and quick to style.

          <div id="MC" style="width:500px;">
          <div class="a-34">
          <!-- Heading -->
          <!-- Progress -->
          <div class="a-34-p">
          <!-- Specify background color and Value -->
          <!-- Specify values for "width" in % -->
          <div class="{AB_Class}" style="width: {AB_Number}%;"></div>
          <div class="a-34-l">
          <!-- Labels Child_1-->


          </div> </div> </div>

          Here is my JSON

          "Ashobiz_Head_Id": "1",
          "AB_Head": "Ashobiz #47",
          "AB_Number": "1320",
          "AB_Icon": "fa-angle-double-down a-red",
          "AB_Class": "a-blue",
          "Child_1": [
          "AB_Head_Link_Id": "1",
          "Ashobiz_Detail_Id": "1",
          "AB_Detail_SubHead": "Html",
          "AB_Detail_Percentage": "65%",
          "AB_Detail_Bar": "a-bg-yellow",
          "ID1": "1",
          "ID2": "1"
          "AB_Head_Link_Id": "1",
          "Ashobiz_Detail_Id": "2",
          "AB_Detail_SubHead": "CSS",
          "AB_Detail_Percentage": "77%",
          "AB_Detail_Bar": "a-bg-blue",
          "ID1": "2",
          "ID2": "2"
          "AB_Head_Link_Id": "1",
          "Ashobiz_Detail_Id": "3",
          "AB_Detail_SubHead": "JavaScript",
          "AB_Detail_Percentage": "25%",
          "AB_Detail_Bar": "a-bg-red",
          "ID1": "3",
          "ID2": "3"

          The syntax is well documented. Play in the JSON template tester.

          You will notice that we have a head section and a detail section.

          {Child_1} is essentially a repeating section. detail.

          You have not shown the JSON you are using so it is difficult to help further.
