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.

  • Is it Possible to display results of xdialog query in same xdialog?

    is it possilbe to show the results of a query by xdialog in the same dialog box or can it only be displayed in another one?

    i.e. in the above example, after setting the query parameters (operator, ICAO or IATA) can I then display the results of this query in the the red coloured area in original xdialog?

    see attachment.

    You can create a browse to display the records and use the advanced menu to create an xdialog to copy into your script.

        this is way, way above my level of understanding of Alpha 5 (been using Alpha 5 in its various editions for 25 years, but only at the hobby level to keep my aviation database up to date), is there a simpler way of doing this?

          Do you have a sample table you can upload here?

                  Re: Is it Possible to display results of xdialog query in same xdialog?

                  I copied your table to a new adb - does this script need a form to run? All I get is a dialog with the radio buttons and 'invalid search' when GO is clicked.

                    Re: Is it Possible to display results of xdialog query in same xdialog?

                    This is example code, you wont be able to just run the script as it does possible lookups from seven of my tables to create the resulting array.
                    Basically there are two Regions, Region1 sets parameters for the query and Region3 displays the result when "Go" is clicked. (region2 was removed during development, I forgot to change region3 to region2). The important bit is the "Go" button, which is processed within the %code% section of the xdialog.
                    clicking "GO" initializes the array and sets the show array button.
                    It is far from perfect code, but I am still on a very steep learning curve with xdialog, but does show one solution.

                    Code:
                    if a_dlg_button = "Go" then
                    		dlCount = tablecount(vTable,vFilter)
                    		vDisplayLookup.resize("2000")
                    		if dlCount > 0 then
                    			vdisplayLookup.initialize_from_table(vTable,vFilter,vOrder)
                    			nCount = *count(vDisplayLookup.matching("as=''"))
                    			vSearchMsg = FmtSearchMsg+nCount+" needed"
                    			vDisplayLookup.resize(vDisplayLookup.first_empty()-1)
                    			showArray = .t.
                    		else
                    			vSearchMsg = FmtSearchMsg+"Search Value Not Found"
                    			showArray = .f.
                    		end if
                    	end if
                    	a_dlg_button = ""
                    end if
