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.

  • Strange WYSIWYG appearance ...

    I don't know what happened, but the WYSIWYG is not showing the table lines anymore. For example, if I insert a component, I used to be able to see the lines of the table that separated each piece. Now I can't. Is there a setting for this?

    I tried View->Show Borders, but no luck.

    I also completed uninstalled and re-installed v9, and even removed all references from the Registry before re-installing. But still no luck.

    Very difficult to lay out pages without seeing where the table cells are.

    Please help .......................................

      Hi Toby,

      New patch did NOT solve it for me.

      Any other ideas? Anybody?

          Hi Dan,

          I have been using the same style sheet for the past year.

          Do you think the style sheet is corrupted?

            Well that's what I was wondering. I was thinking if the issue went away after you tried a new style sheet, then you would know the style sheet got corrupted. If the error still existed then you know to look else where.

                Hi Again

                Have you tried

                Open a page
                Right click where you think the table should be
                Select Table/Table Properties/Border Size and set it at 1

                Alpha has chaged something as I had to contact them about it, but they did fix the problem with the latest patch 2095_3264

                  Toby,

                  That of course does let you see the table cells in the WYSIWYG, but it also makes the cells visible at runtime - not what I want.

                  I have attached 2 images - one with Show Borders (from the View menu at the top menu bar of the page) turned on, and the other with Show Borders turned off.

                  Notice that with View Borders on, it only shows a vertical towards the left. No other evidence of where the cells are located are shown.

                  By the way, I have the latest patch that you mentioned.

                  Any other ideas??

                      Yes I have, and I tried all available Alpha5 stylesheets to no avail.

                        Hi Andrea,

                        How long have you noticed this going on? For me, it has been a few weeks.

                        And, do you know if anyone has reported it as a bug?

                          For me as well, no update has made a difference - I did start to wonder if this is related to some silly Windows update or Internet Explorer update, though.

                          And, do you know if anyone has reported it as a bug?

                          Gary
                          Report it yourself just to make sure? I can do that right now actually as I am in another discussion about an unrelated bug...

                          I don't think there is a bug tracking system going on.

                              Yes I did and I added a link to this thread as well as your two screenshots to illustrate.
