in 2012 COT said
"We leave the actual implementation up to you"

I thought that was just a little lapsus or just a burden with heavy load development that was lead from you to us, customers, trying to find out how to use this feature.

After 6 years now, it seems such feature remains released but not yet supported because it is not that simple "doing it on your own ... the implementation

Question: How can we implement this feature? Can you give us hints about it? I mean: I have already posted one of your links and obviously what is written there is just not enough (from the bottom of my heart)

"We leave the actual implementation up to you"
that was said in this link:

Is it possible to set the default view (when you load the page the first time) of the calender to the year-view

Is there a way to hide the buttons week and day in calender?

And how can you make a calender if there is more than one date so that you can choose witch date?

Thanks for your answers :)

Upgraded to the latest version ( on a test development computer (in case COT breaks during an update ...), generated a brand new Northwind web site.

App loads normally,showing all the menu items. BUT nothing is displayed when the menu is clicked. Just blank pages for everything (including Membership).

Glad I did not update the real development machine ...

Any ideas?

I am using version 8.7.3 (in process of installing and testing the 8.7.4), users have just been reporting to me that the lists of more than 200 items (for example employees or contractors or area lists) if they click the arrow down before they start typing they can never get past the first 200 loaded items, but if they start typing without pushing the arrow down it works.

I wonder, can this behaviour be improved. We have the work around now that we figured, we just start typing without clicking the arrow down, but due to users bad habits it has been happening a lot this week, with more than 5 calls so far and I only got 6 users.

Hi guys, I have changed my project from pure asp to code on time in the last let's say year, I have just switched off the old system which I was running in parallel.

Programming now just flows, I had a bit of a learn curve but I am fine now, there are so many improvements from my previous application to the user experience with the cool functionalities code on time has.

But I get the users constantly asking me to be able to add information from data view fields on create. At the moment this is only displayed after they save. That is my number 2 complain. (The number one is loading auto complete fields with more than 200 items in them)

This program that I have created is a health and safety and some of the forms are very big, and I can understand why the users constantly ask me if they can do the form all at once.

In the old version I had managed to do this with session variables and saving into a temp table in the database, but I have heard from my colleague for a while that it is coming to code on time.

We thought that probably would be coming after the inline edit, which is an awesome functionality.

But I would like to ask you, is this in the plans? Have you got an estimated date? Do we have a work around? It would be so good if the could add information on all the data view fields before pushing save in the form.

A record is selected from a search list. A page opens with the detailed master view of the record. Changes are made, values are recalculated... eventually all changes are complete. The user clicks the "Save" button. In release 8.6.11, the page would close and you would be returned to the search list. NOW, in release 8.7.4, the page remains open even after clicking "Save" and if you press the browser back button a popup asks if you want to discard changes, if you press "no" the page goes back to the search list results screen but all of the left side toolbar and options are gone (i.e. not visible or removed) and the application is locked up.

I deployed a webapp to another machine with IIS Server on Windows 7.
I followed the instructions as provided in Configuring Application in IIS of the Learn library.

Why the theme / styling is not being applied to the website?
It only has a raw content and I cannot continue.

If I Browse in my local default web browser all is OK.

the current example you have for order form example is valid only for classic desktop. Do you have some example for the same for touch ui with aspx pages?

Merging an standard project with a COT one
is that possible at all?

I need to do a lot of customization which I already have in standard C# forms so I was thinking I could elevate my standard pages to a COT level of usability

Is there a way of buying "not the license of the current Unlimited version" but only the unlimited license of a single older version of COT 8.5..5.0 (which btw is an almost 3 year deprecated version of COT released on Monday, September 7, 2015)

I ask this because I don't need all of the modelling stuff neither do I need anything newer than that version in order to achieve my potential customer requirements.

I don't need further updates neither do I need previous releases. Just


This is important and quite straightforward question from my side. A simple "No" will suffice and would be very well welcomed and understood.

I might probably have a little income modifying an project. New fields and tables must be added to the project. Customer application runs just fine. They need to expand a little some issues they did not considered a long time ago. As is natural of course. I am thinking developing some new views and some charts in a kind of dashboard statistical UI interface

Problem is that is a project developed using a very very old version of COT and it has some customizations that can only be achieved by means of the unlimited version. They use the EASE auditing fields and Membership and they also have some kind of custom membership and role providers

BTW: I ask this because I can't afford paying the current unlimited licensing price.

Best regards and thank you very much if you are willing to answer me. Please don't get mad at me for asking. This is just a question, nothing else.

I want to email a report handled by another controller.

So I create a email business rule in the controller calling the report. In this case controller Buyers Card is calling a report named liqPermitReports_BCREP.rdlc

This report is uses liqPermitReports as its controller and view grid1

I can open the report as a pdf from an action to do that.

When I go to email the report, it does not email. I get no errors, but then I get no email either.

Suggestions anyone?


To: {Email}

Subject: Your New Card {PermitTypeCode}

Dear {FirstName},

Attached is the permit you renewed online.

If there are errors or problems with the permit(s) please contact us.

Thank you,

Alcohol & Gambling Enforcement

I create a dashboard following the tutorial. It is a multi-level master-detail. Functions correctly, except each level displays as a form or card, not as a grid. The views each refer to "grid1", and each grid1 displays as a grid when selected directly from the top level menu. How do I get each level to appear as a grid or data-sheet?

we can double click the new record to trigger the inline editing
however, can users use their keyboard to trigger it too?
(e.g. F2 to trigger both the editing and creating a row?)

I have added windows authentication to a basic change of Address Application.
I have 2 fields (Name, Email) that I was to autofill. I am not sure this is the right way to do this, but I wanted to autopopulate those fields with the following code, which will not work. I set up a c#/VB Business Rule on Insert to do this:
Dim currentADUser As System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.UserPrincipal
currentADUser = System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.UserPrincipal.Current
instance.Name = currentADUser.DistinguishedName
instance.Email = currentADUser.EmailAddress

I Imported these:

Imports System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement
Imports System.Security.Principal

I get this error:

Compiler Error Message: BC30002: Type 'System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.UserPrincipal' is not defined

We are using Unlimited - with Inline Editing. We have master detail order form. When the user enters the header information - and click on SAVE we want the form to reopen in EDIT mode with the cursor in first row.

Currently the user has to click in the first row to start adding the item details.
Also, once the first row is completed, the cursor should go automatically to the second row.

What action should be configured to achieve this.

how can i get a controller name via the concept of @BusinessRules_XXX?

e.g. i need to use a virtual field and get a dynamic setting (depending on 3 keys: current controller, pk and user id)

i created a db sample function ...

function dbo.fnGetRecordSettings
(@controller nvarchar(100), @pk bigint, @user bigint)
returns nvarchar(100)

'get all necessary data and calculations
'return sample concatenated data for testing
return(@controller+N' of pk '+convert(nvarchar(100),@pk)+N', user '+convert(nvarchar(100),@user))

and then use it in the virtual field "CustomAUTH"

my issue is that i need to hard coding the controller name every time i paste this field to other controllers.

therefore, how can i have something like

the result i want
