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.

  • duplicate linked grids with in the linked grid

    Is there any way to duplicate a linked grid and with it all the records linked to it?

    ie in the following linked grid structure:

    grid1
    linked grid2

    I can create another record in the linked grid and have the following:

    grid1
    linked grid2
    linked grid3

    in the following linked grids

    grid1
    linked grid2
    linked grid2.1
    linked grid2.2

    Is there any way to duplicate "linked grid2" and also "linked grid2.1" & "linked grid 2.2"

    grid1
    linked grid2
    linked grid2.1
    linked grid2.2
    linked grid3
    linked grid2.1
    linked grid2.2


    To give a practical example it is like duplicating an order that is linked to a client (with it's linked order-items) and assigning a new client to the new duplicated order, therefore you don't have to re-enter the order-items again, but still have the ability to change the order for each client.

    Does that make sense?

    What is the most efficient way to go about it?

    -Client Grid
    Order Grid
    ButtonField(Duplicate Order Button - Pops up dupord.a5w)


    Code dupord.a5w to accept an order id:
    dupord.a5w?ord=123910231203

    dupord.a5w would have a dropdown so you can select a client
    and a "Duplicate Order" button. Clicking "Duplicate Order" would create records under whatever client id they chose in the dropdown.

    what you're trying to do is pretty complicated.
    based on prior work - i think this is your best bet.

    Your other option is a duplicate order page with:

    Order ID (Textbox - Lookup Grid Component)
    New Customer (Dropdown or Lookup)

      Re: duplicate linked grids with in the linked grid

      Thank you for your response.

      If I do that, it only duplicates the order page. It doesn't duplicate all the order_items that are linked to the order page.

      If you think of a desktop application, I need to duplicate a set, not just a record in the grid.

      any ideas?

        In my scenario - you would have to write transactional sql code to insert the order record, then insert the other.

        'start transaction
        INSERT INTO order (fields) SELECT * FROM order WHERE order_id=:order_to_duplicate

        'execute

        new_order_id=lastinsertedidentity

        INSERT INTO order_items (fields) SELECT new_order_id, order_items.other_fields FROM order_items WHERE ord_id=:order_to_duplicate

        'on error, rollback transaction
        'else commit transaction
        'on commit error, rollback transaction

        It would be something along those lines - that is all pseudo code, not a copy paste solution - you will have to take a look.

        The reason for the transaction is that - if it cant insert an order - you dont want to insert order items. If it inserts an order but cant insert order items - you want to rollback the transaction (to get rid of the inserted order)
