    In the Call Log demo at:

    http://lightswitchhelpwebsite.com/D...llLog.aspx




    You can enter a long string.



    LightSwitch will automatically display ellipses (...) if it cannot display the full string.



    If you widen the screen...



    It will automatically display as much as it can.

    Is there any way to specify the display path (DisplayMemberPath for those that know wpf autocomplete box) for the autocomplete box in lightswitch.  Right now, my lightswitch application is displaying the "Id" field vaule instead of the "Description" field value.  I am able to display the correct values in the drop down itself.  However after selection, the "Id" value shows in the datagrid instead of the "Description".  I am using a external sql server datasource in lightswitch, so I don't get the summary property in the table designer, is there any other way I can change the display of the sellection after selecting it from the dropdownbox, I get the correct options when I try to sellect but afterwards it displays the wrong field, I would like to display my full name calculation

    One can use the following code in the created event of a screen to select the first item in a visual collection bound to a Table control (or any list control - code based on an old example from Huy): myapp.MyScreen.created = function (screen) { var visualCollection = screen.Orders; function selectFirst() { var first = visualCollection.data[0]; visualCollection.selectedItem = (first) ? first : null; } if (visualCollection.state === msls.VisualCollection.State.idle) { // If the visual collection is already loaded, try selecting the first item. selectFirst(); } else { // Otherwise, listen to the state change event and when the visual collection is loaded, // select the first item. Also remove the event handler because this should only happen once. function onVisualCollectionStateChanged() { if (visualCollection.state === msls.VisualCollection.State.idle) { visualCollection.removeChangeListener("state",

    I have a modal dialog screen that needs to be larger than the default in both height and width. I can use one of the Group control post-render methods on that dialog to set the height and Width, but I cannot seem to shift the dialog up by changing the top-margin of the dialog. I want the dialog to move up due to the fact that it is so large. This is the code in the Group control post-render method: myapp.MyLargePicker.SomeGroupControl_postRender = function (element, contentItem) { // set dialog width to 1200px $('div[class~="msls-dialog-frame"]').css('maxWidth', '1200px'); // set dialog height to 800px $('div[class~="msls-dialog-inner-frame"]').css('height', '800px'); // move the dialog up (it moves up and then down again??) setTimeout(function () { $('div[class~="msls-dialog-frame"]').css('margin-top', '10px'); }); }; Setting the margin-top above needs to be set inside the timeout() function otherwise it

    I have a table containing FirstName and LastName and am trying to project that as LastName, FirstName in a Table. I add a local property FullName in the client and add post render code: myapp.BrowseCustomerItems.FullName_postRender = function (element, contentItem) { function fullName() { return contentItem.data.LastName + ", " + contentItem.data.FirstName; } contentItem.dataBind("screen.ContentItems.FullName", fullName) }; The dataBind is not working.  I have tried using "screen.ContentItems.CustomerItems.FullName" as well. I hope the screen shot from VS2013 below will help.
