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}.refresh() w/o confirmation

    I would like to invoke the {grid.Object}.refresh() function on a grid's system events. But, if any rows are dirty, I want to simply go ahead and run the refresh without any confirmation.

    Any way to do that?

    Re: {grid.Object}.refresh() w/o confirmation

    Not sure if this would help, but I used the Onblur event so that when they left a field it would refresh a field I needed to refresh.

    Example from one of mine
    Code:
    {grid.Object}.refreshRow(2);
    I'm certainly no Steve Workings so is probable a jacked up way to do something your not even supposed to do.

      Thanks Chris. But OnBlur isn't one of the system events I need, and you've hardcoded the rownumber which I do not want to do.

        If you want the dirty records to be summited use:

        {grid.Object}.submitGridPart();
        {grid.Object}.refresh();


        If you want the dirty records to be dismissed use:

        {grid.Object}._resetRow(rowNumber);
        {grid.Object}.refresh();
        Cheers

          Thanks Mauricio.

          The second one is what I want. But when I try that I get error:

          'rowNumber' is undefined

            Re: {grid.Object}.refresh() w/o confirmation

            try storing the rownumber parameter in an event that actually has that parameters (different events have different parameters)

            eg

            var Row=e.rowNumber;

            then use this in the event you want:
            {grid.Object}._resetRow(Row);
            {grid.Object}.refresh();
            Cheers

              Re: {grid.Object}.refresh() w/o confirmation

              Your theory is good, but I can't find a way to put it into practice.

              There's no Grid System Event that I can find that allows me to set the row numbers. This makes sense if you think about it.

              And the main events I need to use are at the grid level. So, the problem remains:

              I can't figure out how to pass rowNumbers to the various Grid System Events. Even in the grid's Javascript Row Events section, there's no OnBlur event (again, makes sense) to use to set the rowNumber.

                What I really need here is a function that might be:

                {grid.Object}.resetGridPartWithoutConfirmation();

                  Re: {grid.Object}.refresh() w/o confirmation

                  Well, after two more days at this, I'm still without a solution, to trying here one more time.

                  I've moved my testing to editing a detail view. What I want is a javascript-driven approach to canceling the current record without any confirmation, then either a fetch to the last record in the grid or a detail view refresh.

                  None of these do the job, but they illustrate what I've tried:

                  // Works, but has a prompt:
                  //{grid.Object}.resetDetailView();

                  // Emits a prompt:
                  //{grid.Object}.detailViewLastRecord();

                  // Doesn't do the job either:
                  {grid.Object}.detailViewRefresh()



                  If only there was something like:

                  {grid.Object}.resetDetailViewWithoutConfirmation()

                    or

                    {grid.Object}._reset();
                    {grid.Object}.refresh();

                      Re: {grid.Object}.refresh() w/o confirmation

                      Close, but not quite. Using single-record detail-view grid form here.

                      What I'm really is, using the CanUpdateRecord Event for some server-side work:

                      1. Writing an Archive field value to the currently displayed record. This works.

                      2. Creating a whole new record based on the currently-displayed values in the detail view. This works.

                      then, using the AfterDetailViewSubmit client-side event to

                      3. Move the user to the record created in #2 above. Haven't figure this out yet.

                        Re: {grid.Object}.refresh() w/o confirmation

                        Steve,

                        The _resetDetailViewWithoutConfirmation();
                        method will reset a detail view without a confirmation message.

                        Example :
                        Code:
                        {grid.object}._resetDetailViewWithoutConfirmation();
                        There is also a _resetGridPartWithoutConfirmation() method.

                        All of the grids methods (there are quite a few!) are exposed in Firebug (click on the DOM tab) and you can try them out in Firebugs' console mode so it's easy to test.

                        You can also look at Alpha's A5 JavaScript for the method by clicking on the function() from the DOM tab. This can be helpful if you want a peak behind the scenes.

                        Here's a video tutorial on this :

                            Thanks. I'm still learning how to find some of that stuff.

                            In the end, I solved my problem nicely and neatly with some good ol' Xbasic on the events.

                              How did you refresh the grid via xbasic?
