Justin's interpretations of my email are correct. For the record, here's the error handler: Error:=Error So, yeah, nothing exciting there. I posted my code because I'm not confidant in it. I don't remember when I wrote it and I haven't kept up with all of the various permutations on where sets

Hi All, Here's a quick tip if you suddenly loose the buttons at the bottom of your Explorer window, as I did this afternoon -- I couldn't view method Comments (no Preview/Comments button), nor could I Add [+] or Delete [-] methods etc -- those options were just not available to me. What to

Print Project Form

2017-07-16 Thread Robert Livingston via 4D_Tech
Is it possible to print a project form? When I review the "print" functions, they always seem to refer to table forms. I suppose I can use some table form in some "pseudo table" for what I am trying to do, but it would be more straight-forward if I could just print a project form Thanks

Correct, David, you got the gist of my comment. Jim Hays gave a great example where I can see object fields excel. If your app requires user defined fields, then an object field is just perfect for that. I’ve had similar situations in the past and used tab-separated text fields first, and then

We tried using two different Wiki solutions for internal documentation and external documentation (back in the 90s). We found them to be too loose - permitted almost anything or nothing. Therefore we could not enforce completeness (as much as one can) of documentation and very fast finding of
