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.

  • Stripe Currency Symbol

    When using the Stripe payment processing, the currency symbol remains as $ even though the currency settings have been changed to GBP

    Following testing, the actual amount is correct within the stripe dashboard, etc.

    How can the actual currency symbol be changed to be the same as the currency being used?

    Re: Stripe Currency Symbol

    What Alpha version/build are you using? I believe this was fixed in 4238 - end of March 2017.

      Thats the version number I have - 4238

        Re: Stripe Currency Symbol

        Sorry... that may have been a fix for the actual charge. To specify the currency symbol used on the popup, add currency to your Javacsript StripeCheckout.configure function... found in the setupStripHandler function...

        	{dialog.Object}.__stripeHandler = StripeCheckout.configure({
        		key: {dialog.Object}.__stripePublishKey,
        		image: '',
        		currency: 'gbp',
        		allowRememberMe: true,
        		token: function(token) {
        			// You can access the token ID with
        			// Get the token ID to your server-side code for use.
        			var chargeInfo = [];
        			chargeInfo.stripeToken =;
        			chargeInfo.chargeAmount = {dialog.Object}.__chargeAmount;
        			{dialog.Object}.stateInfo['chargeInfo'] = chargeInfo;
        			//Now use an ajax callback to call NodeJS

          Ok...only I'm not sure where to configure this - I've simply used the action javascript builder so far and setup the configuration there.
          Do I need to create separate javascript function(s) and call them using the onclick function instead of the javascript builder?

            Re: Stripe Currency Symbol

            Ok... thanks... now I know how you're calling Stripe. I just tested the Action Javascript under build 4238 and setting the Currency type to GBP does show the pound symbol.

            While in the Stripe Action Javascript, if you select the Text mode radio button and look at the Declarations Global Tab, does "currency" show? Don't save it... just have a look.

              Re: Stripe Currency Symbol

              Yes - currency shows:

              "currency": "GBP",
              "locale": "en",

              It doesn't matter what currency is selected - it always shows $

                Remove your keys (if set to Explicit) and post a sample UX... I'll have a look. My locale, in the Action Javascript dialog, shows auto... but I changed it to "en" and I see the pound sign.

                Where are you... physically... what Country is your Stripe account in?

                How are you testing? LivePreview? On your Server? Are you running at least 4238 for both Dev and Server?

                Try a Recalculate All Controls from the dropdown "Menu" of the UX "Controls" panel... beside the Mobile checkbox.

                    Re: Stripe Currency Symbol

                    If I stop the application server, then start the server from within the development server, the currency symbol is correct.

                    The issue must be within the application server somehow. I tried updating to latest version, but it says it already is the most up-to-date. It's build 3962-4772.

                      Re: Stripe Currency Symbol

                      Right... but that's neither the Dev build you're using... nor close to the current build.

                      3962 is from Nov 2016... which contains the Stripe currency issue. You're using 4238... March 2017. Current release is 4254.

                      Regardless of what the server reports as the current version, you absolutely must run the same Dev and Server versions. You need to update your server to 4238... and then you won't have a Stripe Currency issue.

                          David where would I find those two functions you pointed out? I am trying to learn how to integrate stripe but cannot edit the scripts produced by AS's action builder without error. I wish someone would provide a working example of how to do this in detail. I have been looking and if it's out there, I can't seem to find it. I looked at the one post regarding the node videos and the xbasic but for some reason this is not clicking with me.
                          The builder works great though, I just cannot see how to tweak it other than directly in the builder itself, it's like the global JavaScript and the xbasic can't be changed. I wish someone would make a builder like AS did to include the many various options, and allow for key to be set via session variables as easily as explicitly. I would pay for that right now.
