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.

No scrollbars in Tabbed UI panes?

  • No scrollbars in Tabbed UI panes?

    Does anyone know why there are no vertical or horizontal scrollbars in the tabbed ui panes? For example, if I display a grid and then select to show 100 records on the page, there is no scrollbar for looking down the page at all the records.

    I'm probably overlooking something simple, but I have looked at all the properties for the objects in the tabbed ui and the properties for the tabbed ui itself and can't find anything about scrollbars. Have searched message board and Alphapedia with no luck.

    Would appreciate any ideas.

    It's there on my test... there by default... I can't see an obvious option to turn it off. In my test, you see a Home tab... when I click on that - there is no grid in that tab - the right scroll bar disappears. All seems ok. Records set to display 100, although I only have 20 in the table.

      I think it works if you have your grid in an .a5w page and that page is bigger than the pane - it's one of the reasons I don't use the tabbed ui much.

        I don't know, it seems to work for me. I have grids that load off tabbed ui buttons and the scroll bar appear as needed - and no a5w page.

          Same here--they've always appeared for me, and actually there's other posts about unwanted double-scrollbars, one for the whole page and one for the frame within the tabbed UI...

              Re: No scrollbars in Tabbed UI panes?

              Problem has been solved. The lack of scrollbars and other issues with pop up windows were being because I had placec a timer form in the User Defined Head Content property of the tabbed ui component. That was because we want a timer on the page and you can't edit the tabbed ui page to put content in the body. ANYWAY, having a form in the head section caused javascript errors that were causing scrollbars, date picker calendars, pop up windows, and everything to misbehave.

              We have changed the code so that it is starting the timer by referring to an element id rather than an input box in a timer form.

                I take it there is no setting to turn a scroll bar on/off? In my search part of the grid, which is set for 10 records, unless I one of the choices for viewing more than 10 records, without a vertical scroll bar, the user is dead in the water at 10 records.

                I would think that being able to turn a scroll bar on or off would be a handy feature.

                  Re: No scrollbars in Tabbed UI panes?

                  Working a similar issue and CANNOT find the answer or figure it out. I have a grid with a detail view on an a5w page that loads in a tabbedUI, now normally I just load the component, this however is an a5w page with a grid on it. The problem is that when the detail view loads, there are no scroll bars and you cannot move it vertically although you can tab through the form and get there. Also, on an ipad it is draggable.
                  I went into chrome and inspected the element to find that the problem is in the BODY tag of the inserted component, if I change the overflow from hidden to scroll I immediately get the result I want.

                  So back in alpha, it appears I need to edit the html output that is generated by alpha when inserting the grid into the popup window- so thats at the component level
                  This can be somewhat worked around by choosing "Page" for the position of the detail view, but it wold be super nice to add scroll bars directly to the popup window that the detail view is in when necessary.

                  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.


                  The back story on this is that I want to keep my tabbedUI and load pages with my components on them so I can add tracking code for analytics - rather than how I have it now where I load just the component itself via a tabbedUIbutton where I have no "page" other than the tabbedUI to put content tracking code.

                    Ok, maybe here's a better description of what I want to do if anyone can help me I would sorely appreciate it as I want to get this done today.
                    Attached is an image of the "document code" I want to change and I think I can just add some code to the javascript function area but REALLY not sure how to do it.
                    I want to change the value of OVERFLOW to scroll.

                    If I do that in dev tools for chrome it gives me exactly what I want. Many thanks in advance!

                      Oh my goodness, Alpha sure made that EASY!
                      I simply added
                      document.body.style.overflow = "scroll";
                      to the javascript functions area and I got what I wanted! So simple.

                      So if you have a tabbedUI with a button that loads an a5w page that has a grid with a detail view - and you do NOT have a scroll bar shown when viewing it on a desktop browser preventing you from scrolling - that's all you have to do!
