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.

  • Dirty Grid does not complain

    I have a grid that I open in a popup window that does not complain that the data is not been submitted when I close the window. Is there a setting that I am missing? I thought that Alpha will not let the window close when the grid is dirty.

    Re: Dirty Grid does not complain

    I'm very interested in this, too. It does complain if the grid is open in a tabbed ui, but it doesn't complain if it is in a pop up window. I've done a semi workaround by making an action button that says Close and has inline javascript to close the parent object. Then I set it be enabled only if grid.IsDirty is false. That would be fine if that little X to close the window wasn't also available to the user. I've searched for some event like canClose but found nothing, or some way to disable the windox X button but also found nothing.

      Re: Dirty Grid does not complain

      OK here is what I have done.

      In the OnGridStateChange Client side event of the popup window.
      window.myGridIsDirty = e.isDirty

      In the OnBeforeHide event under the window javascript of the control that calls the popup.
      if(typeof window.myGridIsDirty == 'undefined') return true;
      if(window.myGridIsDirty) {
'Warning','You must Save or Cancel changes before closing','O');
          return false;
      } else {
          return true;

          Re: Dirty Grid does not complain

          Great news! I got the pre release 2745-3949 and discovered that there is now a property to check on the Open A Grid Component (OR dialog component). It is 'Warn Before Closing If Grid In Window is Dirty' and it is working beautifully!

            Now if they can just include linked grids too it will be perfect.

              Re: Dirty Grid does not complain

              Can anyone perhaps assist with the linked grid scenario? I have a parent grid with linked content. When I make changes in the linked content grid without submitting and select another record in the parent grid I would like to pop up a warning. Is there a way to do this
