Thread: Time Clock

    Time Clock

    Hello

    I am brand new to Lianja but have been working with VFP for years.
    I am trying to open a canvas section with two fileds at the moment.
    I want to run the app and have the first field get the focus. (Employee Badge number.
    Then i will look up the employee info and want to update the second field with the Employee name.
    I can't get the focus to the first field without clicking on it and i cannot refresh the second field with the employee name information.

    When you develop in the app builder you need to switch to runtime view (top right icon).

    The first field on your canvas will have focus.

    If you want to change focus programatically you reference the formitem and call the setFocus() method on it. At runtime. It’s meaningless in development mode.

    Lianja.get(“page1.section1.field1”).setFocus()

    If you put the
    Code:
    Lianja.get("pageX.sectionX.fieldX").setFocus()
    in the Page's activate delegate, it will be called when the Page is selected in runtime/Desktop App View.

    Use the badge field's change delegate to update the name field.

    Regards,

    Hello,

    If you want to update a whole section, have a look at the example_canvasquerypage and example_querypage demo Apps. These use the built-in Section Search Panel, so no additional code is required.

    You can also code your own custom Section Search Panel if required. See Section Search Panels in the documentation wiki for full details.

    Regards,

    Yvonne

    Hello
    I am trying to fill in an employee badge number in a field then get the employee info from a table and update the employee name in another field. at the same time i am looking up any clocked in information for that employee for that day in another table. i want to then show the information for any clocked in inforamtion in a grid similar to the grids created in VFP. Is this possible without opening a new section. This app should run all day on a pc in a small window in the bottom right corner of the screen. (250x300)

    You can do that in a canvas section.

    Drop a textbox on the canvas.

    Add a data bound grid to the table that contains the log of clocking in.

    in the changed delegate for the textbox filter the grid contents.

    What is it you don’t understand?

    I have the canvas section with the badge and name fields. I have the treegrid in place. I don't know how to apply the data to the treegrid. I am using a select statement to get the data i want once the badge number is found in the employee file.

    Use the addItems method()
