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.

  • embedded xdialog grid issue

    I'm in the early stages of experimenting with grids in embedded xdialogs on desktop forms.I used action scripting to create some xdialog code. The only change I made to the Alpha generated code was to replace Alpha's
    varC_result = ui_dlg_box("Alpha Five",<<%dlg% with

    ui_modeless_dlg_box(dlgTitle,<<%dlg%.

    Itinitially works as advertised, but after exiting and reoping Alpha, when opening the form.it does not display the grid.Instead it gives the error message:
    Page not found for object:__hidden__testing_var_GridSettings.

    One of the Alpha geberated lines of code in the script is:
    dim global __hidden__testing_var_GridSettings.settings.a5wCode as c
    __hidden__testing_var_GridSettings.settings.a5wCode = <<%html%

    Any thoughts?

    I forgot to mention if I edit the xdialog object and preview it while editing it works again.

            Don't think it's a bug. What is the full code?

              Al and Stan,
              I have not yet submitted a bug report, thinking I might have done something incorrectly.
              Gabriel here's the code on the embedded xdialog object on the form.As I mentioned earlier, it is code generated by Action scripting axcept for adding "modeless to the ui_dlg line.

                  Re: embedded xdialog grid issue

                  I'd like to coclude this thread with the following comments.Thanks to those who responded.
                  To anyone who had an interest in this matter let me wrap it up. After posting a bug report, Selwyn informed me at this time using embedded xdialog with grids on a desktop form is not documented or supported .He did mention that they are adding this feature with a friendly genie as a part of a future purchasable value pack, not as a part of a free patch.So I will cease all efforts to incorporate grids on forms in place of browses and wait for the valuepack to be released.

                    Gabe,
                    Thanks for your efforts.Your code did not work either.
                    I have put this issue to bed, see my previous post.
