    Default Find by Key window is gone

    I cannot use FIND BY KEY or go deep into a QUERY BY EXPRESSION by pressing the x-y button on the right hand side. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and cannot fix this problem. HELP!!!

    Is this on a custom form? Have you tried this in a default browse, for instance? I think we may well need you to describe your problem with a bit more detail.

    Your subject line says that the Find By Key window is gone. I then couldn't understand what you were trying to say in your post. If I guess correctly you are trying to bring the dialog window window up and it is not showing. The setting for these windows is in the registry. Alpha "remembers" where you had the window last so that it opens again in the same position. Sometimes they end up right off the screen and are actually "there" just not where you can see them. You just need to reset the registry settings.

    On my machine I find the registry entries in:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Alpha Five 8.0 -> xdialog.find_by_key.pos

    and

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Alpha Five 8.0 -> xdialog.query_by_expression.pos

    There are 2 settings - 1 for the x position and 1 for the y. At this point they are probably BIG numbers. Just set them both to zero and then reopen Alpha and they should appear in the top left corner.
