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.

  • "Object Is Not Defined" Error When I Use "Close Form" in the "OnInit"

    I managed to figure out that Im getting the "Object Is Not Defined" error as a result of using the "Close Form" or Close Window action on a dialogues Onit. I have a main form "POS", From there when an Item is scanned or type to be entered in the invoice, the "Product Lookup" dialogue is launched which does the query and return the appropriate vales to the POS form. At the end of the onit codes is a close form action which cause the error I cant get rid of; "Object Is Not Defined".
    Please have a look at the attached screenshot.
    Would really appreciate any assistance very much.

    So Nigel you explained the error, then a screenshot of the error.
    From that we know for sure that code on line 29 is using an undefined object.
    From what you've given that's all I can tell you.

      Re: "Object Is Not Defined" Error When I Use "Close Form" in the "OnInit"

      I have no idea what "undefined" means here, I used the action scripting and fill in all the fields. Wen the very same code is converted to xbasic and place in the onkey event, it works fine, but when its place under a button it gives the error. why the difference. and, if i remove the "close form code" and launch the dialogue then manually close it after all the oninit code is executed, it works well there too. Why do.

        I'm unclear about what you're attempting but the oninit wouldn't be a place to issue a close form. The oninit happens as the form display is initialized. At that time some objects may well not be defined and placed into memory.

        Would the onactivate event handle whatever it is you want to do?
        There can be only one.

          Re: "Object Is Not Defined" Error When I Use "Close Form" in the "OnInit"

          I tried the codes in the "onactivate", they weren't triggered.

          Basically what I'm trying to accomplish (and have accomplished except for the error at the end after everything has been executed) is; I need a modal dialogue to open up, by pressing enter on the keyboard, by passing a product in front of a bar code scanner or pressing a certain button on the main form. When this dialogue opens up, a series of codes in the "Oninit" is to be executed, and after all have been done, the dialogue is to close.
          Right now the bar code scanner opens the dialogue, execute the codes and close the form flawlessly. Pressing the enter button on the keyboard does also, but pressing the desired button on the form opens the dialogue, executes the codes, but when it reaches the action script to close the dialogue it pops up that error message.

          Whats most confusing is; its the very same set of codes that are in the dialogue's oninit regardless of how the dialogue was launched.
          Furthermore, Its the very same code that launches the dialogue regardless of how it is launched. Why does the bar code scanner and the keyboard button completes without errors, but the form button does not. Is there something that these hardward devices does automatically that my form button is not?

          I'm not sure if I can explain this any better

            You can't, not without code and context to look at. (ie Example). We get what you wish to accomplish, and the error.
