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.

  • {grid.object}.methodName(); AND '{grid.object}' i

    Okay so there is a way of doing this has anyone done this before?

    I watched v10 video 62. Getting a pointer to a Grid's parent Grid Object.

    I want to put a button on a grid that will ONLY show if the data in another table is there. So the button named Filters will show from grid_Customers when there is data for the record it is on in the table named filters. I have a grid named grid_filters which can show there records but has anyone done this type of show hide setup?

    So do I have to do a hide show function like video 62?

    e.g. like
    function hideShowfilter_grid(){
    records = [grid.object]._filteredRecordsingrid;
    ele - ('{grid.ComponentName}.hideShowfilter');
    minrecords = 1;
    if(ele) {
    if(records < minRecords) ele.style.display - 'none';
    else ele.styple.display = "" ;
    }
    }

    Am I going down the right trail here?

    Nicholas,

    Not sure if I understand you. If you mean a button in a grid for each record - yes I do that. No JavaScript. The trick I use is to create a view w. the child table which includes the child table's linking field. I hide that child column in the grid. I use a simple expression to show/hide the button if a child record exists. But, then again, maybe I misunderstood your intent?

        You have to use a view.

          peter,

          The client side properties do not have a lookup to another table in the Insert Function so I can still use a lookup?

          If I use it, it is giving me a javascript error.

            Are you using dbf or sql?

              Actually it is a passive link table into QB Enterprise invoiceline.table.

              I just tried to do this against a current dbf table and get javascript errors.

                I guess it doesn't matter. If you added the child field to "Fields in view" and hit the refresh button, it should be available in the "lookup" on the ClientSide Properties.
