Is this a change?

Postby Cain » Wed Dec 01, 2004 2:56 am

I have a routine that I use to format phone numbers (http://forum.servoy.com/viewtopic.php?t ... one+format)

It doesn't work since I installed 2.1.2. It appears that getDataProvider() no longer works on related fields.

Is this a change in 2.1.2? Regardless, is there a way to retrieve the value of a related field?

Thanks. It's impressive how you keep polishing and enhancing Servoy in many thoughtful ways. Within 10 minutes I discovered how you have nested the tabpanel dialogue. Now much, much easier to navigate and make one's selection.

I'm sure there are many more. Much appreciated.

Thank you!

Yes, sorry to jump right to my incessant questions. The Servoy team continues to rock!

Thank you for this revision. I, too, like the treeview dialog for tabpanels, and am also looking forward to working with arrays using the new section under JSLib.

Thanks, too, for the change to the typeahead. I realize that one was probably obscure for many, but I know that I'll personally be making use of that change.

There is no getDataProvider() method in the Servoy code base, so not sure where you are talking about.

Sorry. I meant getDataProviderValue()

Thats a controller function, which can be used to retrieve related data like:
controller.getDataProviderValue('orders_to_orderdetails.price')

Yes. That's the one.

From your reaction, I'm thinking this probably wasn't a 2.1.2 change, or at least not an intended one. I still can't figure out why my method isn't working anymore.

I've started a new thread for this under Methods. http://forum.servoy.com/viewtopic.php?p=15929#15929

A possible bug?

Postby rafig » Thu Dec 09, 2004 6:22 pm

Hi,
I've updated to the latest version, but it seems to have affected a number of my solution's field formatting.
Some fields that had no formatting applied to them suddenly had a currency format or some other format applied to them, and others that had
#,##0.00
applied to them, so that they would display 0.00 if there was nothing in them, now show
', 0.00' (without quotes and a space between , and 0)
which they never used to.
I am slowly working my way thru my solution to try and clear up these 'errors'.
Anyone else have these problems?
Thanks,
Rafi.

The ones that had wierd formats applied were text, the ones that had the
#,##0.00
were numbers.

with numbers nothing is changed (really numbers so numbers in the database so not numbers stored as text)

But text columns fields are changed yes. The format you had didn't make any sense or better said did nothing. Because this wasn't implemented yet. Now it is implemented and you can use a mask for youre text see:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api ... atter.html

for more info what you can use.
