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.

  • Set Field Width?

    Hi All,

    I have an Image field and an RTF field.

    How do I set the size of each of these in a grid.

    eg. On a form you can use Best Fit for Image, how do I do this in a grid?

    Also how do I force word rap of the RTF Memo so the user does not have to scroll across the screen?

    Many thanks.

        Can you set the format in the field it self here is a link from the alpha web site
        http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...ad.php?t=77248

        I have added html and changed fields in the display format of each field, and that is all I know, sorry.

          Keith,

          I am not sure I understand what you want. With the RTF field, are you sing a text area? If so, then you set the columns and rows of the text area in the field properties.

            Hi Gary,

            Thanks for reply.

            I have an RTF Memo field which is used in a grid which is not updatable. The text is running wide on the grid which means I have to scroll across the screen to read it.

            Could this be because I am looking at the grid in Live preview and it will not happen when I put the grid onto a web page?

              Hi Roelof,

              The link you gave me was to desktop, how did you change the HTML for a web page?

                Hi Keith,

                No, that is not the reason. Okay, so you want to display an RTF field on a read only grid and have the column width stay constant:

                Use a label control type. Define a calculated field set as soemthing like:

                field_calc=left(yourfield,20)

                  Hi Gary,

                  Seems like a good idea but fails in pactice.

                  It removes all text to leave a blank field.

                  The grid displaying the RTF is the detail view.

                  Do you have Skype?
