    In the Call Log demo at:

    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.

    Latest Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Forum Threads That Have Answers

    I have a super-simple screen that has one entity an a grid (that used to work).  If I try to save, using the built-in button, I get: "An error occurred while updating the entries. See the inner exception for details." It only happens in my published Azure cloud service (not on my local machine).  I have not been able to figure out how to get the Inner Exception.  I enabled the "Enable Created/Modified Properties" and I think that it might have something to do with that.  I unchecked it and the problem still exists. I have not been able to get tracing to work (I have a separate question going on that issue) so I am trying to figure out how to get the actual error.  Any ideas on how to get the actual error would be appreciated. Thanks, Mark

    Hi there! After closing the AddEditScreen dialog, how can I know which button was clicked? Best regards, Ciro

    Hi there! How can I check if a collection has unsaved records? Best regards, Ciro

    I am using VS 2013 lightswitch Update 3 and successfully connecting to Oracle  tables(via both managed and unmanaged ODP.NET) I can import them read them but all data is read only. When I make a form to edit or insert. All fields become disabled. My tables are very simple. They have an INTEGER primary key with Trigger/Sequence style auto increment. I am not sure if this is relevant but I noticed when importing these INTEGER columns, I see they are imported as "decimal" type since there is no column type in oracle that maps  to integer in the .Net world. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Disable detail tab scolling
    8/25/2014 10:11 AM
    In the HTML client if you have a detail screen with several tabs, the collection of tabs in the header will scroll horizontally.  Is there a way to disable this behavior or otherwise get all of the tab buttons on the screen without scrolling?
