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.

  • The Dreaded Error: Turn on Ajax Support?

    I just migrated a client to a new site. Both source and destination A5 installations match in version number.
    Yet, when trying to open grids, some of them have problems...

    ajax.gif

    No matter which option I click, I wind up with a completely blank, useless grid!

    I am lost on this one. Any ideas?

    PS... I just checked the source and Ajax is enabled on the problem grids.

    Re: The Dreaded Error: Turn on Ajax Support?

    Try this:
    From the web controlpanel/Edit/Bulk Operation/Update compiled files for Ajax grids

    There's a couple of others there as well.

      Make sure you can actually open the grid in an older alpha that matches their original build. Maybe the grid is corupt. You can get this condition if you are trying to open a published copy of the grid.

        Thank you for the great tips. It turned out, as Steve mentioned, that some published grids found their way into the wrong folder.

          Damn, happened again. Every time I copy grids from one server to another I get the same error as above. I copied the manifest files and the a5wcmp files. How do I get around this, please?

            Delete all of the ._a5wcmp_manifest and ._a5wcmp_compiled files or at least don't include them in your copy. Deleting them will have no effect on your project. Although they serve a purpose, I treat them as junk files and delete all of them routinely using this batch file. They are automatically recreated whenever you publish.

            del /s *._a5wcmp_compiled
            del /s *._a5wcmp_manifest
            del /s *.backup
            del /s *.tmp

              Re: The Dreaded Error: Turn on Ajax Support?

              Thank you Steve, that's a good batch file to have in one's toolbox. I emailed support directing them to this topic and will post what I get back to help others.
              Export Workspace would be a great help, but the only caveat that I see is with paths. That's prolly why there isn't that feature already.

                do you just go to the server and copy files from there and paste it to another server?
                you don't have to publish your files to the new server using different profile?

                  Re: The Dreaded Error: Turn on Ajax Support?

                  We are retiring one server and launching another. I guessed, probably incorrectly, that it would be a simple matter of grabbing the development files from the old and pasting them into the new. Is there a proper way of migrating development machines?

                    Re: The Dreaded Error: Turn on Ajax Support?

                    I learned something new. This is from a message that I received:

                    The best method I have found - one that seems to not have errors and to not miss anything - is to put the components you wanting in a zip file. The zip file has to be created in Alpha Five developer by right clicking in the Web Projects control Panel and selecting export. Copy that to where you want to move to and then import with the same method - go into project where you want the components to live. Note: I tried zipping outside of Alpha Five and it didnot work the same. I suspect because of hidden files or such.
                    Moved 28 grids twice now like that - nothing lost and no problems.

                      you are retiring a SERVER and question about migrating development machines. I am not sure that's what you meant, are the development machine and server same?
                      I have two development machines (politically correct), one server. I have many times copied all my files from one development machine to another via a usb stick without any problem so far. even today I transported the files.
                      I have one server I publish there for real, another local server in one of the development machines to test at 30 minutes at a time.
                      since I do not copy anything from my server location I have never encountered the corrupt grids so far.
                      thanks for reading

                        This is at the client site and they insist upon developing on the server for their own reasons.

                          ok, now I get it. but make sure they don't mess up your hard work. tell them to keep off, I guess. or look don't touch.

                            I agree with Gandhi, you just copy all of the dev files over. There is something odd about your situation if you have errors. Or you are taking some steps we cannot determine here (make a video of your process?). Regarding developing on the client's server - be sure they keep payments up to date.

                            I reviewed the export from the web control panel and it looks good except it includes files manifest and compiled files which you dont need. FYI that export does not include your publishing profiles, which is appropriate.

                              I think in this situation, export from the web control panel is the best way to go.
