  1. hello, having an issue that cant figure out why its not working. Have a portal in a layout (Table: Customers), showing all records from the same table (Customer). all works well, meaning all records are showing in the portal. now I am trying to create a record via a button on the portal row in a different table but cant get it to work. in my script I have the following steps; This script runs via a button which I have on the portal row. all the steps appear to be running except the "set variable" is not pickup the selected row but whichever record its active Can someone give me an idea what I could be doing wrong. Thanks JMart
  2. I have a layout with three portals, all portals are showing the data as expected when printing. My issue is with one portal where i cannot get the data to print, i have i tried everything i can think of including creating a new layout with only one portal but nothing. Any idea what i could be doing wrong. Thanks
  3. The way I approached this issue is; 1 - placed a button on the portal, which opens a popover and exec a script that inserts the name of the user and data the entry is done 2 - placed the three fields to collect the needed data. also placed two buttons "Accept" and "Cancel", once the user accepts it asks the user to confirm the data is correct via "show dialog" then closes the popover and hides the button on the portal. if canceled is press, it will clear all the fields and closed the popover. I am also forcing the popover to remain open, forcing the user to use one of the two buttons. Thanks
  4. Good morning Alger, Thanks for your reply, still does not work, no matter where i place the step it will not execute on first run, but if i run it manually it will change the menu. I have recreated the script to its simplest from (see new) and still the same issue. It will not exec when the file opens but it will if ran manually . cant get any simpler.
  5. Hi, Can someone guide me on what I could be doing wrong in the below script. This script runs when the file opens. All the steps execute except the "install menu Set" but if I run the script manually after opening the file it does execute and the menu changes. Thanks JMart
  6. hi guys, Can someone point what I am doing wrong. the idea is to open a new windows and create a record on a related table. The windows name is based on the name of the button the users presses to open the window. the script I have is the following; The issue I have is that once I add "set field [WO Notes::g_work_order_notes; ""] to clear the field for the next note I get the following error. any help is greatly appreciated.

    Adjust Windows

    Hi guys. I am sure this is a simple solution but I don't seems to be able to figure out how to it. I have a scrip that I execute when the file is opened, on of the lines I have is "Adjust Windows [Maximize], and it works as expected. my issue comes in when I execute a script with the "new window" command. the new windows will open as expected but the main windows losses the "maximize" setting and I have to manually "maximize" it. what am I doing wrong. Thanks
  8. Hi guys, I have two questions, 1- is it possible to change the title of a button based on the layout mode using a script e.g. a button with the title "Find" will enter into find mode once in find mode the title will change to "perform find" I do plan to have a button to cancel find mode Thanks Rudy
  9. Hi guys, Need some advice, I am in the process of creating an app for job tracking in a factory production environment, the job flow had approximately 15 stations. Each station would login and logout the job as the flow moves between station. I would love to deploy the solution by installing an iPad on each station but that would never fly due to cost, also installing a workstation on each station is not an option due to space constrain. is there an option for me to be able to deploy using android tables, or does anyone know is a low cost 10" Windows AIO with touch screen I can use in a industrial environment. Thanks
  10. Hi gurus, I am trying to check if two fields are empty and if either are a message pops, if they both contain data a record is created on a related table. I have put it on a script but for some reason its not working. and I don't seem to be able to figure out why. Thanks
  11. I am looking for some advice, I am working on a database to track order activity form the time an order was generated to the time the order was delivered to the customer e.g. date and time for when entered, when printed, when sent to warehouse, when picked, also for each instant there is a start entry and end entry. then a calculation for the time each instant took. I would like to create a script that would find all records that contain empty fields (except calculations and auto entered fields), I know I can perform a find instant for each field using "=", but is there an easier way than to have about 160 find instances. Thanks for any advice.
  12. Hi gurus, I have a flat database what contains username, phone ext, department, and email address. I created a layout report grouped by department. I would like to create a script that sends the layout to each user using the email on the database. Can someone guide me or point me to a sample script. Thanks JMart
  13. for some reason the result are not reflecting on the popover only on the layout.
