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.

  • Creating Next and Prev function within Form View control

    I see that the Beta has an example of advancing 'Next and Previous' through Form View. Are these functions going to be added as pre-defined controls within the Form View control?

    Is there a video explaining how and where to create this navigation?

    This learning curve thing always makes me feel stupid until I find what I'm looking for and then the answer seems so simple.



    {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate(UXformViewControlId,direction);

      Glad to see you found a solution, Todd!

      My apologies for the delayed response - I was out of town.

      As you discovered, you can use the {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate method to navigate through the fields on a FormView control:
      {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate(UXformViewControlId, direction)

      The direction accepts the following values for navigation:
      • next
      • prev
      • first
      • last


      EG:
      Code:
      // Navigate to First field in FORMVIEW_1
      {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate("FORMVIEW_1","first");
      
      //Navigate to Last field in FORMVIEW_1
      {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate("FORMVIEW_1","last");
      
      //Navigate to Next field in FORMVIEW_1
      {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate("FORMVIEW_1","next");
      
      //Navigate to Previous field in FORMVIEW_1
      {dialog.object}.formViewNavigate("FORMVIEW_1","prev");
      You can call the javascript method manually. However, this can also be done using Action Javascript.

      You can use the "Form View Control Actions" Action Javascript to create the buttons for navigating the Form View. You can setup the action as follows.

      1. Select "Form View Control Actions" from the list of Action Javascript

      2. Select "Navigate" for the "Action Name" property

      3. Pick which navigation action you want to perform on the Form View control selected for the "Form View Control Id" property.

      Other actions you can perform using "Form View Control Actions" include:
      • Set Form View field value - Set the value in a Form View control. This is done using a Javascript that returns the value to set in the field.
      • Refresh - Reload the original data from the data source into the Form View
      • Clear Errors - Clear all the errors shown in the Form View.
      • Commit - Commit or "save" the data in the Form View to the Form View's data source.
      • Populate Form - Populate the Form View with some data. This is done via a call to a a Javascript function you create that returns an object (JSON) that contains the properties for each field in the form.
      • New Record - Display a new record in the Form View.


      If you want to know more about the "Navigate" action any of the other Form View control actions or if there is an action you'd like to perform that isn't listed, let me know! Thanks!
