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.

      What if for each foo in the list, you pad with spaces?

        Re: Right align numbers in xdialog list

        I was afraid you guys were going to tell me something like that.

        I have code like this:

        Code:
        flag = conn.open("::Name::Test")
        conn.PortableSQLEnabled = .f.
        flag = conn.execute("CALL some_stored_procedure")
        rs = conn.ResultSet
        vList = rs.toString()
        conn.close()
        vList = stritran(vList,chr(9),"|")
        I suppose there is a way that I can use stritran to right justify certain columns (in 5000 rows or whatever). I'll have to think about it.

          Depending on the list contents you may need to use a monospaced font as well.
          There can be only one.

            No, it's tab delimited, hence the last line in the code snippet above.

              Actually, Stan, you're right. I forgot I would be padding, so I would need monospaced. Hhmm..I'm not liking this...

                Re: Right align numbers in xdialog list

                So this line kinda does it for me:

                vList = *for_each(vLine, word(vLine,1,"|",2) + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 3, "|"),10," ") + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 4, "|"),10," ") + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 5, "|"),10," ") + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 6, "|"),10," "),vList)

                Using Tahoma is not too bad. Not great, but not horrible either. Then I don't need to use monospaced.

                  vList = "now is the time for all"

                  vList = stritran(vlist," ","|")
                  ?vlist
                  = "now|is|the|time|for|all"

                  vList = *for_each(vLine, word(vLine,1,"|",2) + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 3, "|"),10," ") + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 4, "|"),10," ") + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 5, "|"),10," ") + "|" + PadL(word(vLine, 6, "|"),10," "),vList)

                  showvar(vList)

                  Code:
                  now|is|       the|      time|       for|       all
                  I tried it because I thought you were going to get double pipes...;)

                    Of course, in my case, the right aligned are numbers.

                      instead of the
                      vList = rs.toString() and then trying to right justify few fields in that string
                      why not construct it yourself, like
                      vList = ""
                      while rs.nextRow()
                      vList = vList + rs.data(1) + rs.data(2) + right_justify_this_field(rs.data(3)) + rs.data(4) + right_justify_this_field(rs.data(5))....rest of the fields + crlf()
                      end while

                        I think that would be much slower to render. Remember *for_each() is extremely fast.

                          Looks like something to test to see the performance.

                          Let us know what you find.

                          Might be even faster since it's newer code under it.
