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.

    Re: How to change the color of buttons in xdialog

    The info Tom gave was great...but I have tested it in v10.5, v11, and Alpha Anywhere and the button hover/button focused does not work for the font size at all. I don't have my other earlier versions available to check them out to see if they even worked back then. Can someone check this aspect out to confirm?

    This is basically the only thread regarding this button style code and all references to this in the help file is not accessible including the links provided here. I did find the same code in the Documentation that is included in v11 regarding new features in v9 but is exactly the same button style code that Tom provided.

    Any information would be great.

    Thanks.

    You could (speaking to myself) simplify this code a tad bit by doing this:

    <15,5 1!x1><15,5 2!x2>
    ....etc.
    Then in the code you would say:
    if left(a_dlg_button,1)="x"
    vn=vn+right(a_dlg_button,1)
    end if

    Stan Thanks for the clarification.

    These additional codes make the keypad perfect. I still have another issue.
    I like to mention that this set of question originally started at

    http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...ad.php?t=86544

    I think every one in need of a keypad to use with touch screen monitors will be very satisfied.

    Thanks to Stan, Gabriel, Tom Henkel and Tom baker.

    Attached is the app so far.
    There are code in this app in how to tranfer data from the xdialog to variable, fields and browse.
    There is another form Zdialogtestsample in the app with additional samples.
    I hope many will benefit

    Re: How to change the color of buttons in xdialog

    Tom,

    I didn't see much difference, so I made the following change:
    Code:
    	$Button:hover,$Button:focused {
    		font:Arial,18,B;
    		border-shape:small-rounded;
    		line-style:single;
    		line-width:1;
    		line-color:blue;
    		fill-style:Gradient horizontal;
    		fill-color:Green;
    		fill-accent-color:White;}
    		}
    This gives the "flyover" effect of turning the button green when the mouse is over it.
