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.

  • updating table field before new record is added through grid a component

    i am trying to update a field in my table with the a session variable.

    when the user enters a new record the userID is to be saved in the table (both variable and table feild types are character)

    i am using the following code in before validate existing record event which is not working.

    function BeforeValidateExistingRecords as v (DataSubmitted as P, Args as p, PageVariables as p)
    with PageVariables
    vt_clnt.value_put("session.userid")
    end with
    end function

    Where vt_clnt is the feild in table and session.userid is the session variable holding the userid

    Is this the correct syntax?

    What else i should be doing to acheive the required result?

    I think its a bit more simple. Here is what I have in my BeforeValidateNewRecords inside the WITH statement:

    DataSubmitted.job_id = session.job_id

    Also, place your userid in the grid as a text box, but as a hidden column.

      hi aijaz

      i use
      DataSubmitted.PAYMENT_ID=session.userid
      but my userid is numeric

      checkout the insert button on the events tab of the component builder
      it will get you started

      try something like

      DataSubmitted.vt_clnt=session.userid

        Thank you All

        Itried the proposed Syntax but i started to get this error.

        Code:
        500 Internal Server Error
        Script Error
        Error:Script: /visa_client.A5w line:23
        x_Visaclient = a5w_run_Component(tmpl_Visaclient)
        Property not found 
        editProps.number_of_insert_rows subelement not found.
        What can be causing this error?

          You're going to have to open the A5W page and look at line 23, then see where "editProps.number_of_insert_rows" comes from, and figure it out. If you have altered the Xbasic in the grid, or elsewhere, try creating a virgin grid and A5W page without those alterations (other than the filter described earlier in this post). The filter is not causing this error. Make sure you periodically publish ALL files, don't rely on that checkmark to publish files that have changed, etc. Alpha Web Server cannot find some portion (element) of the grid.

            You are right the error is gone after i republish the files without the new or changed files checkmark.

            but the syntax i inserted in the validate record event does,nt seem to work record adds but the feild in table is not updated, below is what i inserted

            Code:
            function BeforeValidateNewRecords as v (DataSubmitted as P, Args as p, PageVariables as p)
            with PageVariables
            DataSubmitted.vt_clnt=session.userid
            end with
            end function
            Both my Feild and session variable are charactor type.

              Did you "Also, place your userid in the grid as a text box, but as a hidden column." as suggested below?

                Yes my table field vt_clnt is already present in the grid component as hidden row.

                Do i need to add my session variable also to the grid? if yes how will i achieve that?
