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: xdialog background color

    HINT: (take it or leave it)

    Instead of using something like:
    {Background=__backcolor__}

    I use double square brackets:
    {Background=[[backcolor]]}

    And, yes, there is a method to my madness ==> The double square brackets will REALLY mess up the resulting xdialog and makes it hard to miss if you forget to change them with stritran - BTDT. (see attached screenshot before reading further - then go to the end)

    Here's some code to demonstrate.
    Code:
     fchc = "SomeFolder"
     qty = 9
     dlg_text = <<%dlg%
    {ysize=.3}{units=F}{font=Arial,9,n}{sp}{background=pale yellow}{wrap=75};
    {color=red}{font=Arial,11,b}THIS PROCESS CANNOT BE UNDONE!;{font=Arial,9,n}{color=black}
    {sp};
    Since this process can only be undone by moving each file manually, please verify that the PDF files in the New_Scans folder will be moved to the following destination folder after encryption.;
    {sp};
    {font=Arial,11,b}Files to be Encrypted:{font=Arial,11,b} [[qty]];
    {sp};
    {font=Arial,11,b}Destination Folder:{font=Arial,11,b}{color=red} [[fchc]];
    {color=black}
    {sp};{font=Arial,9,n}
    {justify=center}<*Yes - this above folder is correct!OK> <Oops\! Wrong folder!cancel>
    %dlg%
     'dlg_text = stritran( dlg_text, "[[qty]]", ltrim(str(qty)) )
     dlg_text = stritran( dlg_text, "[[fchc]]", alltrim( fchc ) )
     DIM dlg_result as C
     dlg_result = ui_dlg_box( "VERIFY SCAN FOLDER", dlg_text, <<%code%
    %code%)
    Now, you probably noticed right away that the "qty" wasn't corrected. However, did you notice the PDF 'variable' that wasn't fixed also? I'm sure some will catch it but it would be a lot easier to miss - especially if there were more text - than the [[]] stuff. (That's not in the code above. I added it to the screenshot for demo purposes only.)

    Edit: Actually, this screenshot is a bad example. Often the text being modified is within a paragraph (or at least a sentence or label area) of text and the error becomes even more obvious. In this example, it almost looks like there should be a data entry field where the [[]] was used.

      I don't know... you could go crazy with this thing.
      Here is just a mundane example:

          Tom, you're welcome.

          Cal, thanks for the tip. I guess since I haven't made my first programming mistake yet I did not see the need for something like that.

              Re: xdialog background color

              One more item in this madness.

              I have a dialog box where the user will be entering dates. I test the dates and if they don't "fit", I throw an error. I would like to give them an "Override" option. I have the "override" button appear when the error occurs. I wanted to get fancy and change its color. I can get the color change, but I don't quite get how to make it a raised button with a visible border. Included is my attempt at the code as well as a snapshot of the dialog. I've highlighted the button property code. As always, any and all help is greatly appreciated.

              Code:
