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.

  • Modern Tabbed Grid with Genie

    Hi All...

    Does anyone know of a way that you can create a modern version of the old tabbed genie...users are getting confused by seeing the Submit button on the bottom when it really should only be on the last tab. The old "Genie" style Tab allowed for this but the layout is ugly by comparison to the modern style.

    Thanks

    Joe,

    How are you creating tabbed genie? I only get a submit button on the last tab.

      Hi Lance...

      Thanks for the reply.

      I create a Tab Control without the "Use modern tab style" check box checked it works. What I want to do is use the Modern Style AND have the Genie. The Tab Properties option disappears as soon as you check the "Use modern tab style" box.

      Thanks

          Hi Lance...

          Thanks for the video...

          It looks like you are using a Dialog component. I'm using a Grid. I made a video but I don't have a mic so think of it as an old school silent movie...lol.

            Ah see the difference now, didn't pick up that it was a grid.

            Just tried playing around with the tab control in detail view in grids, and it is really difficult to get looking good .

            Your grid looks very complicated and probably took some time to layout, but have you considered using a dialog2, they are great for data input and can look pretty spectacular. Right click your grid in the control panel and choose create dialog from this grid component. It will keep your original grid and create a new dialog for you, that will give you the correct genie style.

              Very time consuming but quite easy for a novice. I'm going to make a copy of the grid and try what you suggested. Thanks again.
