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.

    Re: List detail error when clicking on list row

    Yes, but again this would assume a NEW RECORD only - default value does not run on an existing record, only a calculated value would unless I am mistaken.

    Something is setting the list dirty flag. It might be the default values. Where are you setting them? I believe if you use the default value property of the control it sets the flag dirty. You may have to use the Default value Javascript in the Detail view properties of the lists fields tab.

    It may be version specific. Or it may be something "wonky". I can't post the client app. But I'm hoping to have someone else look at it.

    Thanks Charles.

    Re: List detail error when clicking on list row

    as far as I know clicking on a row cannot add a new record unless you tell it to, how do you "go to the list"? I re-read your post a few times it should work with suppress global error alerts and auto -commit.
    Even if the list has default values, that doesn't set the list to dirty, client-side calculated values do not either or we wouldn't have to to use e.dirty.columns in dialogValidate. This would drive me nuts.
    Is Only validate values that were changed ticked in the properties of the UX?
    Keep in mind - I am simply looking at my UX's that work as expected and going over things that I know or seem to make things happen for me. I am in no way telling you like I am some sorta expert, lol BUT somethign is wonky there because it shoudl be working and I know you've been around long enough to know too.
    Why not create a new UX and try to duplicate the issue, perhaps it is version specific.

    If nothing else you coudl post the UX but again being that it's an older version someone with that version to test in would have to do it to rule out a version specific caveat - but I still think it's somethign in the way the list is loading because I don't see how clicking a row can add a record instead of update the existing one.

    Frank,

    Yes, I have defaults set in a bunch of controls.

    Also - check "suppress global error alerts" unless you want users to see them

    Re: List detail error when clicking on list row

    oh, congrats on your expecting UX, lol - if I were you though I would adopt and create a stand alone UX and call the related record with arguments instead of using parent-child setup. I think it loads faster (without pagination of course) because your loading each record and each associated child record - this for me has always equaled slow load times of data eventually as users stack up.
    back to your original issue though, you need to look at the allow a NULL selection or not to first. I say this because if you do not allow a null selection the first thing that is going to happen is your going to have the first record selected - now this is where it might get tricky. I think if it's a new list with no records, it might actually create one setting it dirty and causing your issue right there - now I am not sure about an empty list so take that with a grain of salt. Regardless you might not want the list to load with a record selected, but if there are child records you might want that behavior - so again it's apoint to ponder. I prefer to allow a NULL selection myself and let the user choose what they want to select. Then I check the auto-commit on row select and set the syncronization policy to client to server.

    It's a standalone list at the moment, soon to become a parent.

    Re: List detail error when clicking on list row

    Is this a UX with a single list or is this a child list? I have run into this before with parent child list associations.

    Re: List detail error when clicking on list row

    That didn't fix it.

    It has something to do with the "auto-commit view on row select'. If it is not checked I get the above error. If I remove the error message as shown above I can't select the row. Checking the box gets rid of the error message and allows me to select a row. BUT, whenever I logout and log back in and go to the list and click on any row, it ADDs a new record to the list. This is really really frustrating. Only happens on a brand new login.

    Fixed!

    I slayed the monster (this only took 4-5 hours to figure out).

    Set the dirty field warning customization to blank. No more popups.
