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 - Alphabet Buttons fail

    This should be so simple but can't figure out what's happening if I open this test from that has Alphabet Buttons control directly
    from the control panel it works fine .... Looks like this:
    AA1.JPG

    But if I open it from the Main Menu with button doing a simple View Form ... no buttons show ... looks like this:
    AA2.JPG

    I'm at loss...

    Thanks,
    Dick

    Sample databases are easier to diagnose than pictures.

      Ok, Stan ... For an independent test I took the Customer data from Alpha Sports ... made a simple form called Test and a 1 button Menu. If I open the
      test form from the Control Panel the Alphabet Buttons are fine; but if I open the same form from the Menu the buttons are grayed out. My Test database
      is attached.

      Thanks,
      Dick

        Works the same here either way. Are you using Build 3381, Addins 4096? Windows version (I still have Win 7 on this machine)?

          I'm on Build 3670 .... AddIns 4684 (also Win7)

          Thanks for testing it for me ... it may be build related.

            Build 3670 .... AddIns 4684 - That's Alpha Anywhere/V12, not V11. I'll test there but I only have it on a Win 10 machine.

            Same behavior you experience using AA on Win 10 machine. Suggest you submit a bug report.

            Just checked AlphaSports itself. Alphabet button supercontrol on Customer Information form appears as a gray bar.

              Thanks so much for confirming... I'm at DevCon ... I'll see if I can find someone here to report the bug to.

                  I have the same problem with the supercontrol on Win10 - but the original multi state button example works fine.

                    BUMP - Has anyone heard of a resolution for this super control bug in v12? - it seems to affect the Tree control too.

                      Maybe they'll send you a hotfix, but no, you're using desktop aren't you?

                        Well I have noticed that there have been no recent updates for the desktop. And yet the same problems persist - and new ones pop up, which will make it hard to convince me to pay for a 'new' upgrade when my year is up.

                          Robin,

                          Since we're using desktop, I don't think we're going to see any bug fixes. I found a work around if you're interested.

                            Hi Dick,
                            I do have a work around for the A-Z buttons, but what about the Tree supercontrol?

                              Robin,

                              What I do is run the script below OnInit of the form ... It causes the Alphabet Buttons to appear.
                              sorry but I've never used the Tree supercontrol (not an option on my list of supercontrols)
                              ==================================
                              dim tbl as p
                              tbl = table.current()
                              dim i as p
                              dim count as n
                              i=tbl.order("","left(Name,1)= "A"")
                              count = i.records_get()
                              topparent.resynch()
