    Very New to Light Switch and would appreciate any assistance

    Is it possible to have a field on a screen become read only dependant upon the value in certain fields, when its first loaded and during screen entry ?

    What would be the best way to force several fields on a screen to be entered dependant on the value of another. i,e when a status set to Order, require order date, order number etc.

    Regards

    Andy

    There are no code samples I can think of, but I would use a Silverlight Custom control. Some like to use FindControl in the LightSwitch page code behind to attach events to controls, but I think that you can end up with a lot of hard to decipher 'spaghetti code' (however it will also work).

    I created a browse screen to be used as a modal window for another screen.  In the modal screen there is a button to return to the orignal screen.  The button uses the showScreen method.  This seems to work if the modal screen is in full screen mode.  However, if "show as dialog" is selected for the modal screen, when you try to navigate back to the original screen, the modal doesn't close and the original screen is then displayed inside the modal while being greyed out on the outside of the modal (not good).  How do you close the dialog and return to the original screen?  There are no records being added or changed in the modal so it doesn't need to commitChanges; just navigate back to the previous screen and provide that screen's parameters.  I looked at the navigateBack() method but couldn't figure out how to add the screen's parameters with that.  TIA

    querying on the client
    1/23/2015 11:27 AM
    I need to do some querying client side. As a simplified example, this works great: var filter = "(substringof('Futterkiste', CustomerName) eq true)"; msls.application.activeDataWorkspace.ApplicationData.Customers .filter(filter) .top(1) .execute() .then(function (results) { if (results.results.length >= 0) { screen.prpCustomer = results.results[0]; } }, function (error) { alert(error); } ); However, if I already have the customer data loaded (or at least available as a local screen query), how can I filter and use that collection?  This produces Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'filter'. var filter = "(substringof('Futterkiste', CustomerName) eq true)"; screen.getCustomers() .filter(filter) // filter not supported .top(1) .execute() // is this necessary with

    "Common Screen Set" is missing
    1/23/2015 7:14 AM
    I've installed VS2013 - Update 4 and the Office Tools November Update. I'm starting a new project and I want to use the "Common Screen Set", but that Screen Type does not show up in my list of screen templates. This is a completely new installation with no projects (yet). Did I miss a step somewhere? Thanks!

    I have created a Search Screen using the Add Query method to the Child Entity, then creating a Browse Screen based on that Query. This has successfully allowed me to use the Query Designer to set up my search of all the fields in the Parent and Child entity. The problem I am having is that if the Parent has no Children, then that Parent record isn't searchable at all. Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way.  I have also tried extending the query with LINQ but I can't seem to perform a Join on the Navigation Property (Parent_Child), nor can I seem to make use of the Navigation Property via Intellisense at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi I've been struggling to get this to work and am at my wits end. Below is what I wound up with. Please assist (see comments with the code). Thanks, Mark. myapp.ViewStoreGroup.ScreenContent1_render = function (element, contentItem) { $(document).ready(function () { // This works! // var tooltip = '<div id="tooltip"><h2>The tooltip title</h2><p>The tooltip contents here</p></div>'; // element.innerHTML = tooltip; // I am trying to open the web page in an iFrame. // I followed the "fancybox" instructions and placed the .css and .js files in a folder in my HTML client // But the code below just shows a link to Google.com and on clicking opens Google. var tooltip = '<a href="http://www.google.com" class="iframe">Google</a>'; element.innerHTML = tooltip; $('.iframe').fancybox({ width : '85%',
