Has anyone experienced a item style of Check Box showing a different Item Style. The system shows the check box on Grid1 and preview forms but the Slide control on the Edit1 and Create1? Every form has the check box item style defined.

Auto complete and Lookup fields with more than 100 items do not allow me to pick items beyond the first 100. I have a list with 343 option let's say it goes from A-M for the first 100 if I try to search the item that start with S it doesn't bring me it. This happens in touch UI regardless if I use search anywhere tag or not. Regardless if I start typing the start of the field or some word in the middle. Version

We have URL links to COT in other apps (usually reporting) to provide edit capabilties. We are opening a page for "New" record using URL

For some reason any Dataview fields do not display

If I use the same URL but for edit, it works fine

Any help is appreciated

Hello, here are some small mistakes in version
1. Under settings the language selection is now missing
2. Even if there is no action in the grid, always click on the row, left sidebar show always details of the row, to much...
3. Grouping in the grid, an arrow appears on the right side for the individual group, unfortunately without function.

I am using COT v8.6.8.

When I try to open a rdlc file in VS2017 it does not open in the designer but simply the xml file. There does not appear to be a means to open the designer

When I open the rdlc file in VS2015 it opens the designer as I would expect and allows me to modify the presentation layout.

Anyone else experience this behavior with VS2017, or have a solution?

I have a Lenovo s100 with 32 bit OS but have x64 processor type. I successfully installed VS2010, SQL sever 2008r2 and COT. When i tried to create an app using COT,a message appears that IIS installation is required,however when i click the install button for IIS,after some time the above error appears! I am so confused. I have researched a lot regarding this installation error but got no luck.

Please help!

I have a new Time(7) field (Microsoft SQL Table).

How I can set the default value with business rule?

set @Zeit = '00:01:00' fails with New(SQL / Execute).

DECLARE @time time(7) = '01:00:00'; on Sql MMS is working.

Thanks, Peter

Hello, the grouping in the grid can not be canceled. Only about emptying the browser cache. Very annoying! Hotfix? Also, the "hide" of the column appears again, this does not work yet. The COT version is

I will guess this is not a difficult question. I am at a point in my project where I need to deal with reporting.

I need to develop multiple reports for the same controller. For example, I need to be able to print a single records in one report and then multiple records in another report (think batch). So one is done by a customer ID and the second by a date range.

Everything I see or read appears to be about a single default report in a given controller. I need to have many reports for a given controller.

I am not sure the best way to deal with creation, with how to call the specific reports and deal with report selection as a menu option.

Since this is not an uncommon situation, I am hoping someone can point me to a reference and/or may outline how they came up with a solution.

Right now my best thought is to create a separate web application just for reporting an put it in a subdomain. Then call the reports using a new page and URL.

Part of says that is not needed.

Any suggestions are appreciated

I have a date field called Expiration Date, looks as desired on the page. When I export to excel using the "Actions" drp-down I get the time appended. Any way to eliminate the time showing in the spreadsheet ?

Not sure what I changed (accidentally or otherwise) ... but I am no longer able to publish a web site project. Only affecting one project so suspect something I did to this project during "develop" mode.

It seems to stop right before compiling.

Here is the log (short compared to a successful build):

The BIN folder under the Publish folder contain .compiled where it never does for the good ones. One of these files for each

Used to work fine, so something I inadvertently changed.

Any ideas? Help much appreciated.

to use a customized membership, we need to map COT to db fields as the published sample
table Users = Users
column [int|uiid] UserID = UserID

however, my user table has a UserID as an sql bigint (int64)
can i use the mapping or not?
if i can, what [datatype] should i use

modal-never not working in dataview when selecting "see all"
to repeat the bug -->
1. create a "products" dataview field to the "suppliers" controller
2. add the dataview to the editform1 view
3. tag "modal-never" on all views of suppliers and products
4. browse the project under a desktop mode (mine is HD)
5. click edit a supplier
6. click "see all" then click "select", "new" or "edit" action
7. at this point i will always get a modal form as the attached screen capture

if I post about some thing I don't like, that I don't understand or that I am not happy with COT in a flash my post is gone

if a guy posts about selling a license ... that's ok, because it's business; isn't it?
