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 am using an Action Script to reposition a form which is not behaving as expected. This is looking like a bug to me, but I want to make sure that I’m not doing something wrong before reporting it.

    As shown below in screen print 1, my form "frmTest" is defined with the following form properties on the Windows tab:

    HTML Code:
    Position left   Percentage 0
    Position top    Percentage 0
    When the form is opened it correctly appears in the upper left corner of the screen, as shown in screen print 2.

    Problem 1: When an action script is defined specifying the value only of property left, why is the mode, set as above to percentage, not applied correctly?

    I placed a button on the form and defined the following Action script:

    HTML Code:
    Object properties(Get&Set)
    Set properties of Object(s)
    Set properties of object in which window?
         Current form or Browse window
    Set properties of the following objects
         ‘frmTest’ window
    Set the following properties for ‘frmTest’ window
         Left
    How will you specify the value?
         Specify the value now
         Value 50
    I expect that when this button is pushed, the form will be repositioned at 50% of the available screen width.

    Instead, the window has been move approximately ˝ inch to the right as shown in screen print 3.

    Why was it not moved to the middle of the screen?

    When I return to design mode for the form and [Current size and position], the settings indicate that the left of the form is .4 inches. Where did .4 come from?

    Problem 2: When an action script is defined specifying left_mode and the left properties as percentage and 50 respectively, why does nothing happen at all?

    I placed a button on the form and defined the following Action script:

    Code:
    Object properties(Get&Set)
    Set properties of Object(s)
    Set properties of object in which window?
         Current form or Browse window
    Set properties of the following objects
         ‘frmTest’ window
    
    Set the following properties for ‘frmTest’ window
         window.left_mode
    How will you specify the value?
         Specify the value now
         Value “Percentage”
    
    Set the following properties for ‘frmTest’ window
         Left
    How will you spcify the value?
         Specify the value now
         Value 50
    I again expect that when this button is pushed, the form will be repositioned at 50% of the available screen width.

    Instead, absolutely nothing happens when the button is pushed. No error messages are received. Nothing happens.

    Any ideas of what's wrong? I'm just trying to move a form's left edge from the left edge of the screen to the middle of the screen.
