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.

  • Increment a repeating field by one on double click

    I want to be able to enter a 9 digit number in a textbox in the first record in a repeating section, and then when i double click the next record i want it to increment the value by one from the previous record.

    further down the road i would want to do a sql lookup to find the last number used for that particular substance based on the department logged in and the substance being entered. But for now i would be happy to double click to add the values.

    Re: Increment a repeating field by one on double click

    Hi JR,
    why put it off when you can do it sooner?
    Just need the column names and table name
    to create sql code.

      Re: Increment a repeating field by one on double click

      Thank you Greg.

      The table is called 'narcx_ordervials'
      The column I want to get the max number from is called 'narcbarcd'
      I want to filter the table by these columns: 'companyid', 'departmentid' and 'substanceid'
      companyid and departmentid have session variables (':coid' and ':depid') when a user logs in.

      Pulling it from a table and adding +1 to it might be difficult.
      Since these will be entered in a repeating section, usually 25 at a time, and it is not saved until all the records are in, how can it retrieve the correct last record?
      I had been working on retrieving the last/max number and add +1 to it for the first record in the repeating section, and then as it is entered it gets saved and when i click the next row it adds +1 to the number in memory and so on.
      Hope I explaining that correctly.

        The sql code is easy enough to generate.
        I'm sure what you want to do with the repeating section is doable,
        but far easier to get you a good answer if I have sample data and ux to work with.

        Code:
        select max(narcbarcd)+1 from narcx_ordervials
        where companyid = :coid and departmentid = :depid and substanceid = :substanceID

          Re: Increment a repeating field by one on double click

          Here is what is have to get the next barcode to use. I put the number in a field on the parent form, now i just need to figure out how to double click, or populate the 20 to 25 records in the repeating section with incrementing numbers starting with this number.

          function setlastbarcode as c (e as p)
          dim Vstartingbarcode as c
          dim Vconsubstanceid as c
          dim Maxbarcode as n
          dim Vcoid as n
          dim Vdepid as n
          dim Vsubid as c
          Vcoid = e.dataSubmitted.companyid1
          Vdepid = e.dataSubmitted.departmentid1
          Vstartingbarcode = e.dataSubmitted.startingbarcode
          Vsubid = e.datasubmitted.ConSubstanceID
          dim cn as sql::Connection
          dim result as l = .f.
          result = cn.Open("::Name::conn")
          if result then
          dim sqlSelect as c
          dim args as sql::Arguments
          sqlSelect = "SELECT max(narcbarcd)FROM narcx_ordervials WHERE companyid = :newcoid AND departmentid = :newdepid AND ConSubstanceID = :newsubid"

          args.add("newcoid",Vcoid)
          args.add("newdepid",Vdepid)
          args.add("newsubid",Vsubid)
          result = cn.Execute(sqlSelect,args)
          if result then
          dim rs as sql::ResultSet
          rs = cn.ResultSet
          result = rs.nextRow()
          if result then
          Maxbarcode = rs.data(1)
          e._set.startingbarcode.value = Maxbarcode

          else
          setlastbarcode = "alert('Not Working');"
          cn.close()
          end if
          else
          setlastbarcode = "alert('could not select the table');"
          end if
          else
          setlastbarcode = "alert('could not connect to database');"
          end if
          end function

            Re: Increment a repeating field by one on double click

            Hey JR,

            I'm sure there's a way to do this with JavaScript, but that would be beyond my knowledge right now.
            This code should work using xbasic.
            Code:
            dim activeRo as n = val(e._repeatingSections.REPEATINGSECTION_1.activeRow)
            dim autoBarcode as n = val(e._currentRowDataNew.barcode[activeRo - 1])+1
            eval("e._set.barcode_a5instance"+alltrim(str(activeRo))+".value") = alltrim(str(autoBarcode))

              That works great Gregg. Than you very much. Just what I needed.

              I just need to figure out how to set an "if" for when its on the first record.
              If i double click on the first record, it throws an error, but works great on any other record.

                What do you want it to do when you double click the first record ?

                  Probably want it to do nothing if its on the first record.

                              Gregg, its working great, but now I am thinking of one more step to make it even better, lol.

                              I put this code in to enter the next available barcode number in the first record record of the repeating section:
                              if e.dataSubmitted.narcbarcd_A5INSTANCE1 = ""
                              e._set.narcbarcd_A5INSTANCE1.value = Maxbarcode
                              end if

                              But now I'm thinking, how can i get it to cycle through ever how many records there are available in the repeating section and enter the barcodes without having to double click each record?
                              I tried this code, and many versions of it, but it will put the next barcode in the second record but puts a "1" in all the rest of the records.

                              var rows = {dialog.Object}._getRepeatingSectionRowCount('CONTAINER_5');
                              for (var i = 1; i < rows+1; i++) {
                              {dialog.object}.runAction('setNextBarcode');

                              The 'setNextBarcode' is the code which is set on the double click to increment the barcode by 1.
                              J.R.
