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.

    Resize Query by Example

    Is there a place to set the size parameters for the Query by Example in a grid? The length and width of the boxes are considerably more than what's needed. As a result, the grid is too wide for the page.

    Thanks a bunch.

      Hi Carol,

      Yes, I tried that last night. I set the field itself and that changed to what I needed but setting it in the QBE had absolutely no effect.

      Thank you for the suggestion,

        You mean using the QBE Style had no effect? Or something else? QBE Style works for me, but I wonder if you have a later release where it got broken somehow? I haven't upgraded since March 13, build 3906.

          Re: Resize Query by Example

          Correct. And, it's worse. Firefox was taking a long time to initially load and having no clue as to the cause, I went through the Programs & Settings in the Windows Control Panel and removed programs that I no longer use. One of them was A5v10, developer, RT and Application Server. I used Revo Uninstaller and chose to do a deep scan to remove all references to v10. That worked well. There was a "ton" of files (literally over 2,000) that it found to which I was rather surprised. Then I opened v11 and the first thing it did was ask me for my license #. When I opened the A5 control panel, the files showed as icons instead of showing the details. Not a problem. Next, I opened some of the grids only to find see the message, Navigation to the web page has been canceled. I suspect what happened was that v11 also used some of the same folders that v10 used. How else would the v11 files be deleted?

          My next step is to uninstall v11 and then reinstall it. I can't say that if v11 was using some of the v10 locations, that was the cause of the issue at hand but one has to wonder why uninstalling v10 affected v11? I'll report back when I'm done. Oh, I had updated to v3917.

          Thanks,

          kenn

          I completely removed all files of V11 and downloaded 3903. Installed v11 and opened the database. In the exact same location as you show, I set the height and width to a size that will be noticeably smaller using the smart button, just to be sure the right format is used. And the answer is: Ahhhh shucks, nothing changed. Bah Humbug. Phoey louey, something's screwy.

                Hi Bill,

                Thank you for taking a close look at it. Indeed, not having the "in" on it is the reason for it not working. At least it works on the computer at work and I'll check it out with my computer at home this evening. I know how it happened and the only bug is 'me'. LOL
