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.

  • form variables not printing?

    Hello again Forum,

    Say, I've got a little problem with global variables. I have a form with multiple variables(field variables) and I can't get the values of about 5 to xfr to form? All the other values xfr just fine? Everyone of the variables is set 'global' on the form and within the script. The script is fired by a button event 'onpush' on the form. I've tried changing the refresh method from 'form.refresh_fields() to 'parentform.refresh_fields' but still to no avail. The initial display of the form shows all the values just fine, but when you print or preview the form before printing, these five variables are not showing any values? So, when you just go ahead and initially print the form, it does not print their values either? I've even closed out totally and restarted my app, but still makes no difference?

    Am I missing something simple here or have we got a problem with A5V5?

    Any help truly appreciated - Thanks


    I did do a search on the forum and found nothing pertaining to this :-) .

    RE: form variables not printing?

    There is no problem with A5 but I can't know what is happening in your application without seeing it.

    So you should post a copy with instructions on how to replicate the problem.

    Having said this, I offer the general (and perennial) advice to not print forms. They are for screen display.

    Create a report which looks like the screen you want to print. This is not difficult. If you open the report editor and look on the menu you will find an item ("report") which allows you to insert an object such as your form into the report design.

      Thanks William, I didn't know about that feature. I started using A5V1 back in 1995-1996 and am just upgrading to A5V5.

      Question William?
      Will the values of the variables xfr ok to a report in lieu of a form layout. I've always thought of reports being used when printing out filtered field values of a DB. The report I'm creating here actually has no field values involved for printing results. The script takes values of the fields and calculates results to be printed as a whole. Kind of like a survey report if you know what I mean?

      Anyways, I will check out your idea and see what happens :)

        Excellent idea!!! I imported the form into a report 'stats report' and really worked great! I then ran the script and to no avail, it still does not print those 5 variable values? Also, I did check the variables on the report layout and they are all 'global'? So, I thought I'd let you see if you can find anything wrong with this script?

          I'm sorry William, the five(5) variables I'm talking about are;
          Hope this helps - sorry again :-)

            RE: form variables not printing?

            Suggest you print these variables to the trace window immediately after you assign them values from the data table. This will permit you to verify that they aren't empty. An empty field object won't print.

            -- t

              Yes they do have a value within the script. Just not on the form?

              Anymore sugestions appreciated - thanks

                RE: form variables not printing?

                Have you declared the variables in the report design. You must declare them with the same scope to which you did elsewhere which is global, correct?

                If this is not the problem then there is something specific to your application which cannot be addressed in the abstract.

                  RE: form variables not printing?


                  Yes, the variables are global on the report? As far as the app goes - what could prohibit this exchange in the app itself? If you can give me some ideas I'll sure check it out. I wish I could attach a copy of my app, but the data is extremely private. This script is just one of many in this app, but since you introduced me to the report theory, I think I'll go back and change the forms I have designed to print and insert them into reports. Yes, they had multiple variables on them too and did not have this problem?

                  Sure appreciate any info you can come up with William -

                    RE: form variables not printing?


                    I have something for you to ponder on. I've been viewing 'error' statements in the trace window and this particular statement came up -

                    Recursion error encountered while searching for Classes
                    Var Frame [0] 1378
                    Var Frame [1] 140d
                    Var Frame [2] 1378
                    Var Frame [3] 194b

                    Do you think declaring global variables more than once can cause a problem here? I know the form initiates the global scope on all the variables, but then in the script I have it dimming them again? Do you think this could be the problem?

                    I've found out that changing them back too 'shared' in the script will not let them pass to the form. If global variables are visible to all sessions in alpha, then how come this happens? Am I missing something simple here? It's got me confused William.

                    Any help appreciated -

                      Hi Mac,

                      "Do you think declaring global variables more than once can cause a problem here?"

                      Almost certainly not unless you have the same variable declared as shared in one place and global in another or some such.

                      Alpha will do fine with this but you will go nuts wondering why Alpha doesn't see your variable when it is in fact seeing one of your variables. You, on the other hand, are thinking about a different variable of different scope to which you have given the same name.

                      It is really difficult to give you suggestions without examining what you have done.

                      You should think about sanitizing your data (create a dummy data set) so you can seek assistance more effectively.
