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.

Conditional field title

  • Conditional field title

    Is there a way to make the field title fonts conditional? For example: the field title for a checkbox, when the checkbox is false, the font size and background is one size and color and when it is true, they are another size and color.

    Thanks,

    Re: Conditional field title

    In what context? Form? browse? embedded browse?

    EDIT:
    On a form check out the new properties task pane. each property has a 'dynamic' property when you expand the 'plus' symbol. Lots of possiblities there.

    A complex system that does not work is invariably found to have evolved from a simpler system that worked just fine.

      Hi Tim,

      Yes, lots of stuff there but I find nothing to allow for 'conditional' font properties. On the field itself, yes but nothing for the field label.

        Ken, make a conditional on the form, and set it to the value of the field
        like
        fieldname=.t.
        and
        fieldname=.f.
        in the .t. condition put one font size/color, and in the false another

        in the form's onfetch event say cond1.refresh() 'or whatever cond number it is

          Ken,
          Field labels definitely have conditional (dynamic properties.)

            Hi Tim,

            I apologize for nor responding sooner but tonight is the first I've been able to spend time on my app. Right after I created the post, I figured the solution would be in the dynamic properties. However, your outstanding example made it much easier for me to create what I desired. Those properties are so in-depth that one could spend weeks playing around with them.

            Thank you soooooooooo much for your time.
