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.

  • connection not being stored in projects.settings file when published

    We added a new Alpha DAO connection to our existing project.

    Whenever we publish (either to a totally new location, or an existing location), this connection is not written to the a5_application.a5i file.

    Does anyone know how to get this to update?

    Thanks,

    Re: connection not being stored in projects.settings file when published

    Make sure the connection is defined properly in the publishing Profile, not just under the Tools or Edit menu options. The connection string under the Profile can be different than the same connection defined elsewhere. That is because you might have a different connection parameters for the server than for your Development machine.

      I had trouble with this for a long time. This works for me every time.

      In your Web Project Profiles
      Open Named Alpha DAO Connection Strings
      Select the connection string then click edit connection string
      Select Build Connection string
      Re-build the connection string then save.
      Publish your project
      Stop and restart the server.

          This was helpful to me as well. Particularly the "restart server"!

              The V10 server caches the contents of the A5I file and does not watch the filesystem for updates. In order to get the server to recognize an updated A5I file, you must either use Server.ClearA5ICache() or restart the server.

              Among the many enhancements for the V11 server is a greatly improved cache that not only performs much faster but also monitors the filesystem for any changes, negating the need to restart the server or manually clear the cache.
