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.

  • OnRowDblclick won't add a record to another table

    I am trying to add a new record to another table using the double click event in a browse and neither one of these scripts does anything - what am I missing?

    Code:
    if parent.mode_get()<> "VIEW" then
        parent.commit()
    end if
    ''select a client and doublclick to add a new Intake
    ''convert to XD Browse 
    dim global userid as c
    dim c as p
    dim t as p
    c = table.current()  'Client
    t = table.open_session("INT_HDR",FILE_RW_SHARED)
    t.enter_begin(.t.)  'honor field rules
    t.date_in = date()
    t.CLIENT_SSN = c.ssn
    t.CLIENT_ID = c.client_id
    t.MEMB_ID = c.memb_id
    t.CSWRKR = userid
    t.enter_end(.t.)
    t.close()
    Code:
    'Genie Generated: Open the table that you want to update...
    dim tbl as p 
    tbl = table.open("int_hdr",FILE_RW_SHARED)
    
    tbl.enter_begin()
    tbl.DATE_IN = a5_eval_expression("=date()",local_variables())
    tbl.CLIENT_SSN = a5_eval_expression("=Ssn",local_variables())
    tbl.CLIENT_ID = a5_eval_expression("=Client_Id",local_variables())
    tbl.MEMB_ID = a5_eval_expression("=Memb_id",local_variables())
    tbl.CSWRKR = convert_type(userid,"Character")
    tbl.enter_end(.t.)
    tbl.close()

    Have you tried debugging to see which steps are actually being executed?

      I don't know how to use the debugger. I will try tracing and see if that reveals anything. If all that fails, I suppose I could add a browse button...

        Set code as below. Debug window will/should open when onrowdblclick envent fires. Use F12 to step through each line of code.
        Code:
        Debug(1)
        if parent.mode_get()<> "VIEW" then
            parent.commit()
        end if
        ''select a client and doublclick to add a new Intake
        ''convert to XD Browse 
        dim global userid as c
        dim c as p
        dim t as p
        c = table.current()  'Client
        t = table.open_session("INT_HDR",FILE_RW_SHARED)
        t.enter_begin(.t.)  'honor field rules
        t.date_in = date()
        t.CLIENT_SSN = c.ssn
        t.CLIENT_ID = c.client_id
        t.MEMB_ID = c.memb_id
        t.CSWRKR = userid
        t.enter_end(.t.)

          Not even the debugger opens... I'm going to try a msg box - nope, the event just will not fire in a stand alone browse. This is pre v5 behavior! I will restart Alpha and see if that helps.
          It didn't. Bug report next

            Errr... you need the debugger... ;) all this time I thought you were using it....

            Please post an example of what you are doing. If we can prove it's an bug, then you can submit it.

              Al,

              I gave a shot at trying to duplicate something similar to what was described and received very inconsistent results from the onrowdblclick in a standalone browse. Most times clicking into a cell from another row and then double clicking did not fire the onrowdblclick. Then clicking into another cell in the same row and double clicking did. Usually clicking into the leftmost cell in a row and double clicking did fire the onrowdblclick but some times it only deselected the cell contents and placed the cursor at the end of the cell contents (text).

              I wonder if it has something to do with the Windows mouse click speed settings?

              Attachment is a Windows 10 Steps Recorder session illustrating the occasional onrowdblclick event firing, .mht format viewable in Internet Explorer.

                Re: OnRowDblclick won't add a record to another table

                In settings I have the debugger set to no for launching with every script error - but this should not effect the Debug(1) command used in a script should it?

                Also, when attempting the bug report on build 4811 I was prompted to update to 4815 - so I did, but neither will run this browse event.

                Stan somewhere in the help I read that if the browse is read only then double clicking on any field in the row should run the event. I don't think I tried that...nope no difference.

                @ Al - I posted the script above - including the AS genie code. But my code doesn't matter it won't even fire just the msgbox()

                  Stan

                  I think I have relied on double-clicking on the row selector on the left of the row for a consistent result.

                  I've also used a right click menu with a UDF called from it rather than the double click.

                    I'm looking for an example of your table and browse, so we can do the same steps you are.

                    Think of submitting the bug report to the messageboard before sending it to Alpha.

                      Al,

                      I've never used the functionality in my efforts so I had to look it up. I have to agree that the documentation does specify that it fires when the row selector is double clicked. That said, it does sometimes fire when individual cells are double clicked.

                      Learned a bit, still confused.

                      Thanks

                        If I have real estate (ie room), I'll build a button on the row for the user to click. Says like - Details

                        Though usually real estate is at a premium.

                          It's probably some system issue I am having. Every time Win 10 updates, something gets messed up, which is why I didn't try a reboot yet. Selwyn and Jerry both of couse have 'no problems'. So I guess it's me.

                            here is an experiment and see if you can improve upon to suit your needs:

                              Hi Gandhi,
                              Well except for not having to open and close the target table, I am not sure getting the string created is really worth it.

                              In regard to the OP, I did make a new browse with a simple msgbox and the double click event does seem to be working correctly with no other frills added. So now I'll try my script on it and see if that works. It could be that in preparing the browse for an XD conversion, I messed up the XML - or something.
