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.

  • Supercontrol calendar refresh

    Hi All,
    Searched and couldn't find so I hope I can explain this clearly and succinctly.
    I'm trying to get the calendar to refresh flagged dates when moving from record to record.

    Situation: I have 3 people with different schedules. So whichever one of them is in focus in the current record, I want the calendar to flag the dates that they have appointments scheduled.

    The onInitialize currently shows flags for all records that contain an appointment date value.

    I can get it to work if I perform some action with the calendar but I'd rather not require that of the user.

    First; Is it possible to do something like this without touching the calendar?
    Second; If it is, should it be as an onFetch event in the calendar itself or in a separate function?

    Thanks

    Bump.

    I am having a similar issue with the calendar supercontrol. If I bind it to a field on the form and change the date using the calendar it fetches ok but puts the record in edit mode. If I change the binding to a date variable and the OnFetch event changes that var to match the current record value, the calendar does not reflect the new value even with a calendar1.refresh().

    Is there another alternative - In ver 12...?

      Hi Robin,
      How funny. The first post was from my partner Bill. We got this worked out. It was a bear for sure. The one thing that you must know is the event code in the supercontrol will not call UDFs. It will call scripts. I do not know whether this will help you without great context but this is what we came up with that does work, and works well.
      It's been a while since I looked at this, but if you need more help, maybe I can re-visit it with you.
