- Creating a Workspace
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Database/Creating a Workspace.xml
In this lesson, you learn about designing a workspace application. You create a new workspace and workspace tables, and learn about defining data fields.
- Creating a Posting Field Rule
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/FieldRules/Creating a Posting Field Rule.xml
During data entry, you can post values in the current field to matching records in a second table, thus adding to, subtracting from, or replacing the value in a second table.
- Creating a Login Page
/documentation/pages/Guides/Xbasic/Creating a Login Page.xml
Code examples and a short guide on how to create a login page.
- Creating Labels for a Set
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/Set/Creating Labels for a Set.xml
If you are creating a Label layout for a set, and your set contains one or more one-to-many links, by default you will get only one Label for each primary record in your set. If you want to get a separate Label for each child linked to the primary table, you can choose a different addressee table.
- Creating a Grid Component - Tutorial
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/Grid/Introducing the Grid Builder/Tutorials/Creating a Grid Component - Tutorial.xml
Covers a range of topics including selecting a database, creating a grid component, selecting data to use and display in the component, and how to view the component in a browser.
- Creating a Low Resolution Viewfile
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Platform/Xbasic/Creating a Low Resolution Viewfile.xml
When you create an image database, you may want to have a low resolution viewfile to represent a higher resolution image. Typically, the viewfile would be used when you want to quickly put an image on the screen, without moving megabytes of data.
- Creating a Field Rule Event
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/FieldRules/Creating a Field Rule Event.xml
Events are pre-named Alpha Anywhere actions that are associated with certain Alpha Anywhere components. For example, clicking on a button on a form initiates an event called OnPush. When you click on a field, form or browse, a series of events happen. This series includes the OnArrive event for the field you clicked on, and the OnDepart event for the field you left. Alpha Five lets you attach Xbasic code that executes when specific events like these occur.
- Creating a Button with a Hyperlink
/documentation/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Web Component Controls/Creating a Button with a Hyperlink.xml
There are two ways to create a button with a hyperlink.
- Creating a Genie Dialog Box
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Creating a Genie Dialog Box.xml
This next example shows how a "genie" dialog can be created.
- Creating a Previous Values Lookup
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/DBF/Creating a Previous Values Lookup.xml
The Previous Values lookup is a great way to dynamically build a choice list from values that have already been entered.
In a table containing product information, you might define a Product type field with a Previous Values lookup. Since the number of product types is limited, once you enter several product records, you can select the value from the list instead of typing it in.
Many parameters available with the other lookup styles are available for use with a Previous Values lookup, including the ability to display lookup choices in a drop-down list box.
If you selected "Conditional Table Lookup", optionally, un-check Display as Drop-down list box if you would like the choices to appear instead in a pop-up dialog box. Refer to Comparing Drop-down Lists and Popup Dialogs.
