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.

    I downloaded this new examples to my computer and every thing looks great, except that the "themes" of the "tab object" examples are not being published so it results on crappy looking links instead of how its supposed to look (as in the examples your hosting on your server).
    Cheers

      Ah... yes, I was wondering why they looked so bad!

      May I ask, do the images in the popup boxes work for you? I suspect both problems are related to problems with the way it references internal images/themes not working as it should - if I publish these files LOCALLY and run them through A5's internal WAS, this works - but if I run them through WAS - both V9 with the latest patches - then it doesn't work!

        It looks like the download for the new sample doesn't contain the necessary CSS files... I just copied all CSS files into the a5Webroot & it still didn't show the tabs correctly.

        The image references don't work if you have security enabled on your WAS btw, that was my problem - I have submitted a bug report because even after manually adding .a5image to the list of allowed files it still isn't working with security enabled.

        UPDATED: I downloaded them from the afas demo site, please find attached a zip file of the correct version of the CSS files for a5system!
