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}.setSelectedRow

    I have a form and I have a few fields that are auto-filled after a lookup is done on the first. What I'd like to do next is to activate the next field on the form that information needs to be entered into. Has anyone used this javascript function to accomplish this? Should it look something like this?

    {grid.object}.setSelectedRow(-4);

    -4 representing the row/field I want to activate. Does grid.object need to be the name of the grid?

    {grid.object} will automatically get replaced with the actual grid object name when the grid is rendered.

    however, .setSelectedRow(-4) will give focus to the first editable field on the 4th new record row. this does not sound anything like what you have said you want to do.

    you want to give focus to a particular field in the current grid row.

    you would need code something like this:



    Code:
    var ele = $('{grid.componentname}.V.R'+{grid.object}._selectedRow+'.FIRSTNAME').focus();

      Re: {grid.object}.setSelectedRow

      Selwyn, thank you. I am still having a problem.

      FirstName is the field I am giving focus to am I correct? I added this to the onchange event inside the auto-suggest control where the client's id is selected. When I created the actionscript, I selected inline javascript, pasted this in there and saved/published. I don't receive any errors but it does not set focus to the field after selecting the ID in the auto suggest control.

        can you show the exact javascript.

        javascript is case sensitive. we use upper case for all object names. so if you wanted to set focus to the 'FirstName' field, then you would specify the object Id using 'FIRSTNAME'

          var ele = $('{grid.componentname}.V.R'+{grid.object}._selectedRow+'.DESCRIPTION').focus();

          The firstname field is where my auto-suggest control. The user selects the requestor and then I would like to set focus on the description field because the lookup definition is set to fill in the fields between Firstname and Description. I attached a ss as well.

            this does not look right

            this would be correct:

            Code:
            var ele = $('{grid.componentname}.V.R'+{grid.object}._selectedRow+'.DESCRIPTION');
            ele.focus();
            or more simply

            Code:
            $('{grid.componentname}.V.R'+{grid.object}._selectedRow+'.DESCRIPTION').focus();

              Re: {grid.object}.setSelectedRow

              I am not sure why but it is not working. The lookup and the fill-in of the fields happens but it does not set focus to the Description field after the onchange event occurs. I know you know what you are doing so it must be something I am doing wrong. Could it have something to do with trying to run this script in unison with the auto-suggest lookup?

                Here is what I understand you want:

                1. user makes a selection from an auto-suggest field.
                2. you want focus to then automatically move to another control on the grid.

                3. to achieve this you have put code in the onChange event.

                unfortunately, this will not work because the onchange event actually fires BEFORE the selection is made from the auto-suggest list. (it fires when you start typing into the field to trigger the callback that displays the list).


                then, when the user makes his selection, the field is populated, but there are no events that fire that you can hook.

                we would have to add a new property to the auto-suggest lookup to allow you to specify your own onSelection event.

                this is not something we are currently planning on doing as there are other priorities. It certainly could be done, and if it is very important to you, please contact our professional services group.


                Addendum to message - 10/22/2010 - I have just added this new property to the auto-suggest control and the edit combo control in the Grid component.
                It will be in the next update.




                Grid Component - Edit-Combo and Auto-Suggest Controls - AfterSelect Javascript - These two controls now allow you to specify any Javascript to execute after the user has made a selection from the list. For example, the following Javascript shows how you can automatically set focus to the 'Company' field in the Grid after the user has made a selection from the list.

                var rowNumber = {grid.object}._selectedRow;
                var ele = $('{grid.componentname}.V.R' + rowNumber + '.COMPANY');
                ele.focus();
