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.

    That'll take a bit of javascript. There are plenty of javascript functions out there to do what you want. A little google searching should find something that suits you.

        Robert,

        Can you share your new found discovery so that others can benefit from that knowledge? At least a link!

          Robert,

          I am also very interested in achieving this.

          Can you put your solution on the forum. The javascripts interfacing with the grid component would be very useful.

            I believe there is a sample that does just this in the web application samples that Alpha provides.

              Pat,

              Thank you for your reply.

              I keep loosing the web location of the samples. Can you give me the URL for the latest set. If you have them....

              Thanks,

                When you first start A5, the database list allows you to look at sample and tutorial databases. Select the web page demo off there. The page allows you to change where they are copied, so a location I give you may not be correct.

                    Hi the solution for the above problem ,

                    First to create "CHECK ALL" option i grid. I created that using HTML in the Freeform Layout of the grid,
                    the code is
                    <input type="checkbox" value="Approval" id="tryme" ></input>

                    After creating the checkbox in the freeform layout
                    I used java script , As i have to do make all checkbox true on selection of "CHECK ALL". Iam executing the loop "Count" times, Count is the total number of records in the grid. Iam iam finding before the javascript in XBASIC
                    Hope what is explained is clear

                    <script>

                    window.onload = init;
                    function init(){
                    var counts = <%a5 ?count %>;
                    var thistxt = document.getElementById("tryme")
                    var myval = thistxt.value;
                    thistxt.onclick = chkall
                    function chkall(){
                    for (i=1;i<=counts;i++)
                    {
                    var lvl = "V.R"+i+".status";
                    if (thistxt.checked==true)
                    {
                    document.getElementById(lvl).checked = true}
                    else{
                    document.getElementById(lvl).checked = false}
                    }}}
                    </script>



                    Thank you

                      Re: Select and Delete Multiple records with a check box

                      Robert,

                      Thank you for your response.

                      I am trying to use this code, but I think I am getting stuck on where I would point the checkall to.

                      I have two colums of checkboxes, (1) CHK1 and (2) CHK2. These are shown as fields within the grid component. Therefore every record will have the two checkboxes by there side.

                      This is where i think i am going wrong.... I have placed

                      Code:
                      <input type="checkbox" value="Approval" id="tryme" ></input>
                      in the FREEFORM Edit Regions (Above Grid) section, which gives me a check box above the grid results. I then placed the javascript directly below the checkbox code.

                      Code:
                      <html><head><title></title>
                      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="file:///C:\Program Files\A5V8/css/Page1/style.css ">
                      </head>
                      <body  class="Page1 PageBODY">
                      <font size=2>Level 2 Items</font>
                      
                      <input type="checkbox" value="Approval" id="tryme" ></input>
                      
                      <script>
                      window.onload = init;
                      function init(){
                      var counts = <%a5 ?count %>;
                      var thistxt = document.getElementById("tryme")
                      var myval = thistxt.value;
                      thistxt.onclick = chkall
                      function chkall(){
                      for (i=1;i<=counts;i++)
                      {
                      var lvl = "V.R"+i+".status";
                      if (thistxt.checked==true)
                      {
                      document.getElementById(lvl).checked = true}
                      else{
                      document.getElementById(lvl).checked = false}
                      }}}
                      </script>
                      </body>
                      When i check the newly created single checkbox, my other checkboxes do not get checked. Now I know the obvious reason is probably because I have not specified in code what to check when this is selected.

                      Could you help me futher with this?

                      Thanks in advance.

                        Hi Denis
                        I think you had placed Javascript in the HTML part that is in the freeform layout. You have to place javascript in the boby part of .a5w web page. And count u better initialise as 3 or 4 something likt that in the starting..
                        Try this and let me know.

                          Hi Robert,

                          Thank you for your time with this.

                          I have now placed the javascript into the body section of the a5w page. Where in the code do i specify which checkboxes to check when i select check all?

                          Thanks,

                          Denis

                            ok so.. now u placed the javascript in the a5w page. Good.

                            No go through the java script code once more properly, as u have to make bit changes in that. i will explain u . Please look the codes below in red colour font ok.

                            --- 1----assign count = 5
                            --- 2----tryme is my check box that i placed in the free form layout's name,
                            --- 3---- and i mentioned lvl as V.R"+i+, .. this means V.R.1 is ur first grid check box, V.R.2 will be ur second, V.R.3 will be ur thrid like that.. u please go through the HTML and Xbasic script of the grid, u can c "V.R..." If you read this javascript arleast 3 or 4 times perfectly u will get a good idea. And tell me the result ok..

                            window.onload = init;
